Amazon has stepped into the PC game arena firmly with the Amazon Game Studios (AGS) unveiling three PC games.
The core principle of AGS is prioritizing broadcasting and live-streaming. Amazon rightfully believes that the future of gaming is in large-scale competitive play where gamers can connect, collaborate, and be an active part of esport tournaments.
Amazon will leverage industry-leading technologies and Twitch to help the players broadcast their plays. Check games.amazon.com for more.
The three games are: Breakaway, New World, and Crucible. I’m attaching the official introductions and AllGamesBeta reveal videos of the games below.
Breakaway is a 4 vs. 4 mythological sport brawler built for fast action, teamwork, and live-streaming. Assemble the optimal team from an expanding roster of legendary warriors, each with their own unique skills, weapons, and Buildables—summonable structures that can be used to dynamically alter the arena and provide a new level of tactical depth. Fight for dominance across fabled locations such as El Dorado, Atlantis, and Styx as you engage in multiplayer competition to control the Relic, an artifact of immense power. Broadcast your feats utilizing a host of new Twitch features designed to make Breakaway as fun to watch as it is to play.
Carve your own destiny in New World, a massively multiplayer, open-ended sandbox game set in a living, cursed land. Choose how you play, what you do, and whom you work with or against in an evolving world that transforms with the seasons, weather, and time of day. Band together to reclaim monster-haunted wilds and build thriving civilizations, or strike out on your own, surviving in the face of supernatural terrors and murderous player bandits. Focused on emergent gameplay and rich social features – including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards – your only limit in the New World is your ambition.
Crucible is a battle to the last survivor on a hostile alien world. Players choose and customize heroes, making alliances and betraying allies on their path to victory. An additional player heightens the drama by triggering events, live-streaming the battles, and interacting with viewers.
Personally, I think Breakaway is pretty interesting. Breakaway is also closest to reality, as you can already register for the alpha and it’s got a dedicated website, playbreakaway.com. You can watch a gameplay and cinematic trailer video on the website as well. More characters will be added on top of the current 7 soon.
Well actually if we talk about the concept of the games, all three are engaging and competitive. Amazon Game Studios have tried their hardest to retain originality and uniqueness in their games. As a result, a lot of elements of these games are surprisingly fun to watch.
No wonder these games will see gamers flocking to them as they decide on a personal favorite.
