Amazon's Project Tempo could arrive this year to take on Google Stadia

Amazon's Project Tempo could arrive this year to take on Google Stadia”

If Amazon were to fold Project Tempo into this service and give Twitch Prime members an instant collection of high-quality games to stream from the cloud, it could offer one heck of a value - and drive even more Amazon Prime subscriptions.

The same group is now working on an MMO based on the Lord of the Rings franchise.

There are few other details on it at present, but previous rumours came about after Amazon posted job listings for positions in a new cloud game business back in January of 2019. He quickly spotted an opportunity for Amazon to start marketing cloud computing services to game developers and begin the journey toward making top-end games of its own. "In Crucible it takes a mix of combat skill, strategic planning, and social finesse to survive", says Amazon's official website for its original games.

Finally, the article touches on interactive experiences that could potentially be coming to the (Amazon-owned) Twitch platform, so that viewers can join in with the action they're watching.

"The big picture is about trying to take the best of Amazon and bringing it to games", said Amazon VP for game services and studios Mike Frazzini.

The ball will keep rolling with a second game called New World, a massive online multiplayer (MMO) set in a fantasy world based on an alternate 17th century. "Thankfully, we're with a company that has the resources to let this new team fully gel and get a great expression out there". The spread of Covid-19 has delayed the Crucible launch, which was originally planned for March.

The company will launch its second game and first triple-A title, Crucible, in May, with another massively multiplayer skirmish-em-up, New World, to follow after - but those will be more traditional releases, for consoles and PC. It's like breaking the 4th wall. The new games would allow users to play along with streamers via Twitch. It will compete with the likes of Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now services. However, it is unclear at the moment how Amazon plans to practically implement its Project Tempo regarding hardware compatibility or cross-platform support for existing 3rd party games.
