About Backbreaker

Backbreaker breaks the mold of traditional football video games with realistic, physics-based motion AI, crisp high-definition graphics and a camera angle that follows the perspective of the player. Backbreaker is the first sports video game to feature NaturalMotion's acclaimed Euphoria motion synthesis engine, offering intense gameplay, dazzling graphics and an endless variety of unique sacks and tackles.

Backbreaker includes online multiplayer and split-screen multiplayer modes. The game welcomes newcomers to the genre with its intuitive pick-up-and-play Arcade Mode control scheme, while seasoned players can go head-to-head in the game's more challenging Pro Mode that turns off AI and visual assists. In addition, the game features total team customization including a fully featured logo editor.

Backbreaker will be available for Xbox 360™ and PlayStation®3 on June 1, 2010. For more information, please visit the official website at: http://www.backbreakergame.com.
