MOBAs meet American football in Amazon’s esports bid
This team-based fantasy sports game with MOBA elements comes to us from developer Double Helix – the people responsible for the 2013 Killer Instinct reboot. Players scrap and use special abilities to try to deliver a ‘relic’ (read: ball) into their opponent’s goal. It’s self-consciously spectator friendly, which is hardly a surprise given that live-streaming platform Twitch just so happens to be owned by the publisher of Breakaway, Amazon. In addition to an array of fantastical powers, teams can also deploy ‘buildables’ – barriers, speed boosts, and more – to give them an edge over their opponents.
