Amazon shows its first games integrated with Twitch

Amazon Game Studios this week showed off the first games that will be integrated with live-streaming site Twitch, which Amazon acquired for over $1 billion in 2014.  The new games will run on Lumberyard, the game engine powered by Amazon Web Services, that debuted earlier this year. These integrations will allow gamers to stream their broadcasts in real-time, overlaid with live stats, invite others to join matches, and even allow viewers to wager points redeemable for in-game rewards.

Amazon announced the news at TwitchCon on Thursday.

According to a report from Geekwire, Amazon showed attendees a game called Breakaway, which is described as “a 4v4 mythological sport brawler built for fast action, teamwork, and live-streaming.” This is the first game to launch on the Lumberyard platform, says Amazon. In the game, players will battle to control the Relic across locations like El Dorado, Atlantis, and Styx.
