- Crucible is coming soon from Amazon Game Studios. Let us take a look into this first big-budgeted game from them.
Today gaming is getting more and more influenced by the big companies. When we are taking a look at the general market we can see that gaming became a multi-billion dollar industry. This makes big corporations such as Amazon more interested in gaming. Amazon already has a huge stake in the gaming world as they are the owners of Twitch the biggest game streaming platform in the world. Even though Twitch is highly successful, we did not see big-budget games from Amazon Game Studios until now. However, this is changing with Crucible. Crucible is coming soon with a big budget and a lot of promise.
Crucible is a team-based hero shooter game. Players play from the 3rd perspective and it does look like a combination of different games. The heroes are called Hunters and the game takes place in a jungle-like planet. Players are fighting just like a MOBA for example League of Legends. You try to destroy enemy structures when fighting with AI bots and try to level up. Each hunter has their own unique playstyle, and they have different health levels depending on their size. The matches take around 30 minutes and it is a shooter after all. The fights is not over in a second as there are many medkits around and players have access to abilities like invincibility.
Crucible is a safe entry from Amazon Game Studios. When we are taking a deep look into game, we can see the potential. On one hand, Amazon can promote their game via Twitch for as long as they want. We are expecting the game to have a stable community. The game offers 3 game modes heart of the Hives, Alpha Hunters, and Harvester Command. Alpha Hunters is a small Battle Royale map with 8 teams of duos fighting, and it is a very good way to learn about the hunters, and Harvester Command is a Team deathmatch type of game mode. We will see how will this game turn out for Amazon.
