Amazon Games is entering e-sports. The first online game gaming game is called Breakaway and is scheduled for 2018 for PC and console. Breakaway combines classic team competitions with sports elements.
At the video games Gamescom (23 – 26 August) the company showed an early version of the game. After the purchase of the streaming network Twitch, Amazon would have a strong e-sports title with good results.
Players can choose between different characters with unique abilities, spells, and attacks – as with other genre colleagues. Together, the opposing team must be conquered. It is less the happy shot than good team play. The winner is the player who places a shining relic in the opponent’s zone, turns off the opposing team or completes the round with the relic in team possession in the opponent’s half.
The mixture of classic battles against the opponents and the simultaneous fitting of the “ball” to the team colleagues as well as to the American football is correspondingly exciting. For successful games, there is gold, with which the character can be expanded by additional skills. Further details on further game modes, characters and the business model did not want to make representatives of Amazon Games at the mess stand.
Until the publication of a first finished version 2018 – more details were not available – Breakaway can already be played online at irregular intervals.
