The rumors regarding Google's apparent announcement of a 'Game Center' style of service called Google Play Games has now officially been announced during the opening Keynote at Google I/O 2013. All of the features we had thought would make it into the service has indeed been confirmed as well.
Developers will now be able to integrate Google Play Game features into their releases, offering up gamers the ability to track achievements, cloud save their games and allowing access to those saved games on any Android device, leaderboards, multiplayer integration, matchmaking and so on.
Games have already started to get updates with these features integrated into them already. Games such as Eufloria HD and Modern Combat 4 have Google Play Games integrated into them already. More should be coming down the line as this week continues.
