Kicking off the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC) festivities, Epic Games yesterday announced Battle Breakers, a frenetic tactical role-playing game powered by Unreal Engine 4 that features cross-platform play across mobile devices and PC. Battle Breakers was publicly revealed for the first time in a game demonstration featured as part of the Google GDC Developer Day earlier yesterday.
A vibrant fantasy sci-fi cartoon adventure, Battle Breakers lets you recruit hundreds of unique heroes, and create dream teams of ninjas, knights, robots, and talking dinosaurs. Battle monsters from space that have infested every corner of your world, from ice sheets and lava fields to ancient forests and sheer mountains. Master the elements and defeat your enemies with strategy, smash crystals to unlock hidden treasures, and power up your hero squads to take back the Kingdom, one break at a time.
Watch the Battle Breakers gameplay trailer below:
A playable version of Battle Breakers will be on display this week in the Epic Games GDC booth located at Moscone South, Booth 1024. Additionally, Epic Games will host its own “State of Unreal” keynote presentation on Wednesday, March 1st at 10am in Moscone West, Room 3001. The keynote will feature other major announcements and be streamed live on the Unreal Engine Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook pages.
Donald Mustard, Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games said:
[blockquote]The team at Epic had this crazy idea that if we combined our passion for zany 80’s Saturday morning cartoons with our obsession for tactical turn-based RPGs, we might just create something awesome and unique. If you’re anything like us you’ll be humming the Battle Breakers theme and grinning from ear to ear as you battle your way to victory.[/blockquote]
