So as the next couple of days pass by there will be more and more games getting updated with Google Play Games features. While at some point it will be impossible to list every game that gets integrated with Google’s new service, for now we can at least keep everyone up to speed on what games already have it.
Day: May 15, 2013
Yesterday Nvidia announced that their Android-powered handheld gaming system, now official called just ‘Shield’, has gone live for pre-orders to those people who have subscribed to the Shield’s newsletter. Everyone else has to wait until May 20th, 2013 to pre-order a unit. Double Fine has come out today to announce that their Costume Quest game will also be heading to Nvidia’s Shield system as well.
Gameloft has also come out to announce that three of their games will be updated with Google Play Games features. One game we already mentioned today is Modern Combat 4 but the company will also be updating two other games as well with Google Play Games integration.
While we won’t report on every single game that gets updated with the new Google Play Games service, we will try to keep everyone up to speed on which of their games will now have this service integrated. Glu has already begun adding Google Play Games to their titles and the first one to get these new features is Eternity Warriors 2.
Another big announcement at Google I/O 2013 this morning during the opening keynote was that the developer console now has a slew of new features for developers to take advantage of. While all of the new features are great, the biggest one has to be the ability to roll out beta versions of your game or application.
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.
Google I/O 2013 is about to begin and Google is planning to stream a fair amount of this conference live on the internet. Well for everyone who didn’t get to go to this year’s conference, you can at least watch a good amount of it live. So we’ve decided to embed Google’s new live streaming widget right here so you can watch the live streams from Google I/O 2013 while also following all the Android gaming news you usually read right here.
Interesting news today regarding EA’s Frostbite game engine and the fact that a mobile centric version of the engine will be available soon going by the name of Frostbite Go. This is something everyone should be excited about, almost as excited as when we first heard about developers using Unreal Engine for mobile games.
