Shadowgun to bring FPS to tablets

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Already this summer
It’s no secret that the iPad 2 has way superior graphics than Tegra 2 and other ARM chips and this is exactly why Nvidia hopes to have Kal-El Tegra 3 out in a tablet already by next month, August that is.

Still, Tegra 2 still has quite a lot of life and it beats at least the most popular gaming phone around, the iPhone 4. Since Nvidia has The way it’s meant to be played a partnership program where Nvidia works with developers to make games look better on Nvidia and sometimes even on other platforms. Of course, they want Tegra 2 games to look as best as possible.

This is what will get you a Shadowgun, a quake-like multiplayer shooter with quite gorgeous graphics, and we’ve seen some of the best graphics so far in a game. We played the demo for  a while and we can tell that it looks awesome and runs just fine on Motorola Xoom, Asus Transformer or Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1.

We took a few pictures of the game and sources said that the game is expected to launch this summer. Pictures are below and the game works quite well even in multitasking environment, together with other apps.

You are either misinformed or just paid by Nvidia. Tegra 2 does NOT outperform the iPhone 4. I have played identical games on the iPhone 4 and Tegra 2 tablets and the iPhone wins hands down. Tegra 2 just seems stuttery and sluggish, the framerate is far lower than iPhone.

Sorry, Fudo, but your paymasters are ruining this site.

I admit I'm both confused and slightly worried that the FPS genre is being pushed so hard on mobile devices, systems woefully inadequate for controlling such games.

Not that I'm complaining, it just seems to me that games such as Civ or HoMM would be far better suited to such devices.

I play and love games like Civ on my PC please don't destroy these games like other games by making them Console ports .

they already destroyed FPS GAMES let them just be busy with those games .

Then it's phone's and/or game developer's fault, not tegra's. Apple A4 which is inside iphone 4 is weaker than tegra 2 in any way.

A4 -> single-core cortex A8
Tegra 2 -> dual-core cortex A9

And read the chart in the following page to see GPU specs for both:

We're not talking about consoles here, we're talking about mobile games.

I'm merely saying that turn-based strategy games make a lot more sense than FPS games on mobile devices.

FPS games can't be controlled properly with a touch screen. Who would want to play a clumsy slow FPS?

nice looking game, but I am not a fan of FPS outside of PC.

I would like to have traditional japanese RPG and other turn based combat in Rich Graphics.
