Milton Keynes, UK 4th August, 2010 – 505 Games and NaturalMotion Games announced today that Greathouse, the forthcoming update to their revolutionary, euphoria-powered football game, Backbreaker, is available for download on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The update introduces brand new features, gameplay enhancements and dozens of important tweaks, resulting in a greatly enriched Backbreaker experience.

Major features in Greathouse include:
  • Brand new replay system with the addition of seven fully functional cameras, including free flight mode and a cinematic ‘ball-lock’ option.
  • An additional 110+ plays adding up to twice the number of offensive and defensive plays, 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.
  • Comprehensive review of the penalty rulings following an analysis of reported errors.
The Greathouse update is available for download on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

Backbreaker, developed by NaturalMotion Games and published worldwide by 505 Games, is the world’s first truly live sports title. Utilizing the studio’s own euphoria engine, Backbreaker brings a revolutionary in-game animation system to the on-field action, meaning no two tackles will ever be alike. Backbreaker is available on Xbox 360TM and PlayStation® 3.

UPDATE: According to the official Backbreaker Facebook page, it was a PR mistake. It will not be released today.

"Contrary to reports online, the Greathouse update has NOT gone live. We're sorry to disappoint you all. Rest assured we are keen for this to be released as soon as possible, but I'm afraid it's not today."

How much do you want to bet that the OS says this is NaturalMotions fault for not having the patch out.

They're all citing the same source, so if the original source is wrong then all the other sources are also.

When it's out if someone could put it up for those without live or can't connect 360 to net or banned etc that would be great.
