Breakaway wasn’t the only game that Amazon Game Studios was ready to announce today. The game publishing arm of the retail giant also confirmed that it has two other projects in the works for the PC… New World and Crucible
New World sounds like a rather traditional MMO that also include Twitch integration for “broadcaster-led events”:
New World is a massively multiplayer, open-ended sandbox game that allows players to carve out their own destiny with other players in a living, cursed land. Players decide how to play, what to do, and whom to work with–or against–in an evolving world that transforms with seasons, weather, and time of day. Players can band together to reclaim monster-haunted wilds and build thriving civilizations, or strike out alone, surviving in the face of supernatural terrors and murderous player bandits. With emergent gameplay and rich social features, including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards, the only limit in the New World is a player’s ambition.
While Crucible is a survival game that also includes another player that serves a role that sounds very similar to a Dungeon Master:
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.
Both games are still early in development, but interested players can head over to Games.Amazon.com to keep tabs on them.
