Amazon Game Studios’s Breakway has recently received a major update, overhauling several of the existing characters and refreshing the ever evolving public Alpha of the 4v4 sports battle game. The new game update for Breakaway addresses the character roster and updates the look of several of the playable characters, the newly imagined characters gives the game a fresh new coat of paint, making the currently in-Alpha title feel closer and closer to what the final game will eventually look like once it ships. The new characters also come with name changes and include — Argus (formerly known as Spartacus), Kyra (formally known as Anne Bonny), and Korryn (formerly known as Morgan Le Fey).
Amazon Game Studios have stated that this refresh and update to the roster of fighters comes after the player base suggested and asked for more ‘unique and ownable characters’. For those who may be unfamiliar with Breakaway, the game is one of the first games developed by Amazon Game Studios, along with two other games called Crucible and New World. Breakaway is a 4v4 arena battle sports game that promises to deliver high levels of action and frenetic craziness that takes aspects from existing AAA action games and melds it all together in an over the top, arcadey and competitive game. The title pits players against each other with the objective of seizing the opposing forces relic and slamming it into the enemy base to score.
What makes Breakaway standout is the eclectic selection of playable characters that effortlessly combine characters drawn from and inspired from mythology and legend into one competitive package. The title also features the ability to build unique fortifications for their strongholds that add another layer of strategy to the game. Breakaway is currently in Public Alpha, those interested in checking it out may visit the games official website to find out more. Amazon Games Studio has been around since 2014 with Breakaway amongst one of their first titles, which in itself was announced in September of 2016.
