505 Games and NaturalMotion take players down on the line of scrimmage in the latest behind-the-scenes look at Backbreaker, revealing the game's innovative on-the-field camera view. Unlike no other football game to-date, Backbreaker's unique over the shoulder perspective delivers the adrenaline-fuelled rush of being right in the middle of the action.

Instead of relying on an unrealistic top-down camera view, Backbreaker follows the perspective of the ball handler, allowing for more true-to-life gameplay, giving players an unrivalled on-field experience. Every explosive hit happens in real-time, instead of relying on pre-scripted, canned animations.

Players can hit the gridiron like never before when Backbreaker hits retailers nationwide on May 25, 2010 at an MSRP of $49.99.

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 May 25, 2010. For more information, please visit the official Web site at:
