In Breakaway, players will pass, shoot, and fight in a fantasy battle arena where skillful plays and well-timed attacks are rewarded. Players can choose from a rooster of powerful warriors, play to the cheering crowd and gain recognition with signature dunks, epic saves, and game-changing buildables that allow them to control the arena.

Players will be able to customize not only the look of their warrior, but also their weapons, taunts, and signature scoring moves such as dunks.

The game willbe friendly to streamers and will feature a Spectator Mode, a Broadcaster Match Builde, Metastream functionalities, and Broadcast Spotlight.
