Amazon's First Game, Breakaway, Set to Start Alpha This Week

Those lucky enough to have been chosen for the Breakaway alpha for Amazon Game Studios' first entry into the market have a couple of days to get the client downloaded prior to the start of the first round of testing for the "4v4 mythological sport brawler". Alpha testing will take place from Thursday, December 15th and run through Monday, December 19th.

What does “Alpha” really mean for Amazon Game Studios and Breakaway?

Alpha to us, means alpha…..a super early version of a game that is in active development. While the core gameplay experience will be fairly polished—if you’ve played our TwitchCon demo, you’ve hopefully already seen that—a lot of the systems surrounding the gameplay loop will be in early stages and various degrees of polish. You might encounter some bugs, you might see us testing mechanics, you might even see game crashes. Again, we want to be as transparent as possible with all of you and give you the earliest possible access to Breakaway to get your feedback. Our goal is to make Breakaway a game that is developed with your input, and that can only happen if we allow you to play the game while it’s still early.

Victor Frankenstein is being added to the known roster of heroes that includes Black Knight, Morgan Le Fay, Spartacus, Thorgrim, Anne Bonny, Rawlins and Alona.  

You'll be able to see the game for yourself as all testers are invited to stream their gameplay action throughout the weekend. 

You can read a pair of detailed FAQ documents here and here or just head straight to the Breakaway site to get signed up for alpha testing yourself!
