<b>Breakaway</b> – Amazon Game Studios announce new 4 vs 4 online brawler

[Alpha signup] Amazon Game Studios, a new subsidiary of E-commerce giant Amazon, today announced 3 new PC online games, the first of which is titled Breakaway. Breakaway is a 4v4 mythological sport brawler where players assemble a team from an expanding roster of legendary warriors, including the relentless gladiator Spartacus, the twisted sorceress Morgan Le Fay, and the bloodthirsty warlord Vlad the Impaler.

At the start of each round, warriors can summon persistent buildables onto the playing field that dynamically alter the game. Buildables can besiege foes, shield teammates, or create new pathways through the arena. Players wage epic battles across several fabled locations such as El Dorado, Atlantis, and Styx to control the Relic, defending it from attackers, and smashing it into an opponent’s base to score.

Breakaway is powered by Amazon Lumberyard and integrates directly with Twitch (also owned by Amazon). Breakaway introduces four new ways for the Twitch community to interact with broadcasters.

1. Metastream allows streamers to customize their broadcasts with real-time stat overlays.

2. Broadcaster Match Builder lets broadcasters invite their followers to join their matches.

3. Broadcaster Spotlight adds to the excitement of streaming. It tells players when they’re in a match that’s being broadcast, and lets them follow the broadcaster with a single click.

4. Stream+ gives broadcasters new ways to interact with their viewers through polls, and by allowing viewers to wager loyalty points that are redeemable for in-game rewards.
