Backbreaker Kicks off New Football Season with Xbox LIVE Demo Available Today


505 Games and developer NaturalMotion Games today announced that the demo for the highly anticipated, innovative football video game Backbreaker is now available on Xbox LIVE for Gold level subscribers. A Backbreaker demo on PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 will also be available soon.

Backbreaker is the first football video game available this season. Players can download the demo and choose from one of six teams to play in exhibition mode, under various weather conditions in the San Francisco stadium. The demo preps players for an explosive season as Backbreaker’s training camp mode helps sharpen running, passing, kicking and tackling skills before they step onto the field. Players can further train for the full Backbreaker experience with the Tackle Alley mini game. Already a widely popular download for iPhone and iPad, Tackle Alley gives players the option to play solo or test the split-screen local multiplayer function as they try to gain yards and avoid sacks and tackles.

When Backbreaker hits retail outlets June 3, players will be thrust into the middle of the action on the football field like never before. As the first sports video game to feature NaturalMotion’s critically acclaimed Euphoria engine, Backbreaker offers realistic, physics-based motion, crisp high-definition graphics and a camera angle that follows the perspective of the player. Revolutionizing the way football games are played on this generation of consoles, Backbreaker features an intuitive pick-up-and-play control scheme in Arcade Mode, with the more challenging Pro Mode turning off AI assists.

Rated E for Everyone, Backbreaker launches nationwide on June 1, 2010 on Xbox 360 and PS3. For all of the latest information, please visit the official website at:
