Developers of the euphoria animation technology featured in GTA4 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, NaturalMotion has announced Backbreaker, an American football game being developed exclusively for next-gen consoles. It is slated for release sometime next year.
“Backbreaker is the first football game with truly interactive tackles. By utilizing our motion synthesis engine, euphoria, players will never make the same tackle twice, giving them an intensely unique experience every time they play the game,” said NaturalMotion CEO Torsten Reil. “Backbreaker puts players in the middle of the gridiron by providing a pure, realistic football experience only possible on next-generation consoles.”
Though no screenshots were released, they were sure to send out a nice trailer showing off some backbreaking.
