Gamescom 2017: Amazon’s Breakaway trailer and alpha signups

    
14

Update: Amazon has apparently removed the trailer following intense criticism.

Breakaway has a fresh new trailer out for Gamescom today, along with a run-down of all its toons. You’ll recall the game from its slow-cook reveal last fall as one of the new titles Amazon Game Studios is currently building out — this one’s the stream-centric 4v4 online brawler.

Breakaway is a team battle sport that blends the speed, strategy, and teamwork of sports in a competitive multiplayer action game, and is being developed with constant feedback and input from the community. Amazon Game Studios has partnered closely with Twitch to design the game to be as fun to watch as it is to play, and has added special features to help broadcaster engage their audiences.”

Check out all the new assets from the con, and make sure you’re signed up for the alpha!

It’s strange that there’s an update stating the video was removed for intense criticism… but no comments at all at what the criticism may have been or who from – that sounds like a more interesting story to me!

Can anyone describe what this game is? All you have in the article is a non existent trailer.

yes, please. Although to be precise, I think I want more information on NW. But sometimes the speculation and imagination prior to the blind date exceed the reality.

Pretty vacuous trailer, you can barely see the gameplay, but whoa! cool explosions bro!

The game is basically Huttball with SMITE/LOL avatars, i’d say the game is much better than the trailer but that’s not much of a compliment.

this one’s the stream-centric 4v4 online brawler.

My guess is that you could have gotten away with “4v4 brawler” as stream-centric and online shall apply to all AGS offerings. I am very excited about the computationally-ridiculous cloud aspects of AGS, not near as much regarding the streaming aspects but oh well. One for two is better than I usually get.

Pro Tip:

Skip to :47 to see a bit of actual gameplay and less hype about “ALRIGHT…GET READY….WORLDWIDE MULTIPLAYER! OH YEAAAAAAAH!”

Watched trailer, have no idea what the actual gameplay is really about. Got the idea that it is 4v4 get the ball in the goal game. Trailer made my eyes wanna barf.
