  1. What is the Breakaway Alpha?

    We conduct Alpha playtests from time to time before we release our games. These playtests help us make the game as balanced, compatible, performant, and fun as possible before release, and are also opportunities for players to offer feedback to the studio. If you have access to the Alpha, please tweet at us or leave your thoughts on our forums!

  2. How do I get into the Alpha?

    Sign up for the Alpha waitlist by clicking here or by visiting the Game section on the Breakaway website. Alpha participants will be pulled from our Alpha waitlist.

  3. When will the Alpha begin?

    The first Breakaway Alpha playtest is December 15, 2016. More details to follow soon! Please bookmark this page or follow us on Twitter for the latest updates.

  4. How many players will be invited to the Alpha?

    The Breakaway Alpha is a chance for us to hear your feedback and shore up our technology before launch. Once we open the Alpha we’ll grow gradually week over week to maintain a good player experience. Look for details about outgoing invites on our news site at

  5. When will the game be released?

    We’re here to learn, and that includes learning from our Alpha community. We’ll set our roadmap once we have a chance to hear from them.

  6. When will the Alpha be available in my region?

    We want to make Breakaway the best experience possible for all players, so Alpha playtests aren’t available in all regions at this time. If you really want to play Breakaway, but the Alpha isn’t available in your region, let us know on our forums!

  7. What languages will be supported in the Alpha?

    As a technical test, the Alpha currently supports English only, and is only recommended for play within North America. Both our language and our regional support will increase before official launch.

  8. What are the minimum system requirements to play Breakaway?

    Breakaway is in early development and we’re working to support more machines over time. Currently for Alpha our requirements are:

    • Processor: Intel Core i5 Quad-Core Processor or Better
    • RAM: 4 GB RAM
    • Hard Disk: 15 GB
    • Video Card: GTX 460
    • Supported OS: Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows
    • Additional Requirements: Twitch account and Internet connection required to play.
  9. Does my in-game progression stay with me throughout the Alpha?

    We want to make Breakaway as balanced as possible, so during the Alpha, in-game progression and acquisitions will occasionally be wiped or reset.
