One game we are following closely is the sequel to the classic Elite game called Elite: Dangerous which is on Kickstarter right now looking for funding so Frontier Developments can finish the game. If it does make its goal, the developers will be considering the possibility of bringing the game to other platforms including mobile phones and tablets.
Two days ago Call of Duty fans were finally able to get their hands on the next installment in the Call of Duty: Black Ops series of games, appropriately named Black Ops II. Well along with this new release of Black Ops II, Activision have updated their Call of Duty Elite service to support their new Black Ops II game and that also means that the Elite application has also been update.
Frontier Developments have started up a Kickstarter campaign to help getting a sequel to their rather popular classic space trading sim game called Elite which was originally released back in 1984. At the time Elite featured a revolutionary blend of 3D wire frame graphics and vast procedurally generated galaxies that had not really been accomplished before. Now they are looking to bring a sequel, called Elite: Dangerous, to PCs and David Braben of Frontier Developments has come out to say that they may bring the sequel to mobile devices should they hit/surpass their goal for their Kickstarter campaign.
The Call of Duty Elite application for Android has been out for a short while now but it has never been optimized for tablets. That is about to change soon as Activision is developing a tablet version of the Elite app which is great news for anyone who has wanted a better version of the app on their Android tablet.
Since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 we have been talking about the new Elite service being offered by Activision which brings a bunch of features to the game both statistically and socially. We also mentioned that there would be a companion app for Android which, even though ended up being delayed, would be released soon.
Modern Warfare 3 has been out for a little bit now and the new Call of Duty Elite system has been having troubles keeping up with all the traffic. Offered in both a free and premium membership, the Call of Duty Elite system is a service that offers a wide variety of extra features to Modern Warfare 3 including plenty of social features.
