Amazon announces three new original games
Amazon Game Studios has revealed what it's been working on during a presentation at TwitchCon 2016 today, debuting three major games currently in production.

Designed with a spectator community in mind, the most obvious bid for the esports market is Breakaway, a 4v4 "mythological sports brawler" hybrid focusing on class-based, hero-centric combat first and foremost. You can see a match in action here, and registrations for the alpha are currently open.

Next is Crucible, is a third-person shooter where 12 players fight (or shoot) for survival on an alien planet, with cooperation seemingly mandatory for survival. The game will also feature a 13th player who can influence the game – or grief the participants – in a role resembling a game master.

Last is New World, which is described as "a massively multiplayer open-ended sandbox game set in a living cursed land". Set in 17th century colonial America, the game isn't exactly historically accurate: according to the game's creative director speaking during the stream, the era's supernatural beliefs will be "real in the game".

The full presentation can be found here, or here if you want to watch the entire Amazon Game Studios event.
