Breakaway Overview

Grab a hold of the relic and smash it into the opponent's goal to score in Breakaway, a 4v4 MOBA developed and published by Amazon Game Studios. Breakaway offers a unique MOBA experience that feels like it's part Overwatch, part Rocket League, where two teams skirmish over the relic (a ball) using cartoon-like champions in a best-of-five match. Win a round by either scoring a goal or acing the other team. Each champion can build two buildables, or structures, that remain on the playing field unless destroyed. The arena also includes two crystals that can be attacked for buffs. Compose a team to fill various roles, such as DPS and support, and work together while passing the relic to score. Play at mythical locations, such as the Styx and Atlantis. Check out real-time stats, instant replays, and Twitch Stream integration that allows streamers to easily connect with their viewers.

Breakaway Key Features:

  • Score Goals – work as a team to move the ball-like relic between players to score goals for points.
  • Build Structures – each character has the ability to build two structures on the battlefield that remain until destroyed.
  • Various Maps – play at mythical places such as Atlantis and El Dorado.
  • Different Roles – pick characters and fill different roles, such as Tank or Support.
  • Twitch Stream Integration as a streamer, engage your viewers with ease through the facets of Twitch Stream integration.
