NaturalMotion Set To Release

Developer NaturalMotion Games today revealed the first details about the upcoming “Greathouse” update coming to their hyper-realistic football title Backbreaker. If you’ve been complaining incessantly on the game’s forums about particular features you’d like to see in the game, there’s a good chance your complaints/whining were heard.

NaturalMotion’s head Todd Gibbs said in the official announcement the improvements and tweaks are “taken directly from our online forums, reviews, as well as from individual players who spent time at our offices testing the latest features.”

Here are some of the big changes players can expect from the update:

  • Brand new replay system with the addition of seven fully functional cameras, including free flight mode and a cinematic ‘ball-lock’ option.
  • More than 100 new plays added, including an additional nine formations.
  • Improved Quarterback camera view and passing game.
  • A user-catch system, giving the player a much greater level of control over the on-field action.
  • Interception control, the user is now given full control over interception attempts when controlling a defensive player.
  • Comprehensive review of the penalty rulings following an analysis of reported errors.

The update doesn’t have an official release date just yet, but it’s expect to roll out in the next couple of weeks.

Backbreaker players: what do you think of these new features? What issues do you hope NaturalMotion addresses with the update?
