Saw this over at Neogaf.
Looks like Amazon’s getting into gaming. Amazon Game Studios announced 3 games here
New World: a MMO where you settle 17th century America. A sandbox game that features “emergent gameplay.” Includes “Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events.”
Crucible: a king-of-the-hill PVP game where one player can trigger events, stream the game, and interact with viewers (an emcee of sorts?).
Seems like they’re following Blizzard’s model of taking an existing genre or stereotype and (I assume) coming out with a highly-polished version of it. Interesting that they’re pushing an MMO in this day and age, given how many developers and publishers have flamed out on them.
This is the first I’ve heard of these.
Perhaps you noticed they are all-in on Twitch integration. If that’s the future of gaming, I think I will go sit over here in the corner and cry a little.
