Today Qualcomm has taken the leap and launched their Augmented Reality Platform for Android. Last year it was released in beta form for developers to play around with and develop apps/games for the developers challenge. Now it is available in non-beta form for developers to actually release apps and games commercially.
Qualcomm has announced the release of it’s beta software for augmented reality development regarding Android games as well as applications. Regarding game development, the new AR extension for Unity 3D will help developers create games with augmented reality features much more quickly when used in conjunction with their other tools.
Fable III is set to release soon and while the game itself already has a ridiculous amount of hyper already and the developers, Lionhead, are not satisfied just yet. Titled Fable III: Kingmaker, the game is an Augmented Reality game which will turn your town or city in one “big online battle” at anytime, anywhere when loaded onto your phone.
