Shadowgun Deadzone Beta Releases for Tegra 3 Devices

Shadowgun Deadzone Beta Releases for Tegra 3 Devices

Oct 15, 2012

Madfinger’s long-awaited Shadowgun: Deadzone is…still not officially released but it is one step closer to release, as a public beta has been released. We mean this has been long-awaited: initially revealed earlier this year, it was apparently shown off briefly at Game Developers Conference in March (though at least one demo I tried to attend was delayed due to network issues), and now, seven months later, the public finally gets their hands on it. Of course, a little game called Dead Trigger may have been cause of some of the delays.

Anyway, not everyone can take part in this open beta, only those with Tegra 3 devices can, including Nexus 7 owners. Note that while the game has an account login at the beginning, this is not the same as the account for Dead Trigger, this is brand new.

There’s a standard free-for-all deathmatch mode with an objective-based mode thrown in as well. The game is planned to be free-to-play but at the moment features no currency buying and everything is unlocked, including a powerful rocket launcher with a name we won’t publish. Fun times! Otherwise, for fans of Shadowgun, this is the familiar gameplay with a new deathmatch twist, and the beta is available for free from Google Play.

Sonic 4 Episode 2 Coming Early to Tegra 3 Devices This March

Sonic 4 Episode 2 Coming Early to Tegra 3 Devices This March

Feb 28, 2012

Sonic 4 Episode 2 has been confirmed for Android devices, and it’s coming really, really soon for a certain subset of them. Phandroid is reporting that after playing the game hands on at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, that the game will be coming to Tegra 3 devices this March. Probably the most prominent of Tegra 3 devices currently available is the Asus Transformer Prime, though more devices are rolling out with the chip, such as the LG Optimus 4X HD. Still, this will mean that only a limited number of people will be playing it on Android at its March launch, though the game will be available for Android at large in mid-April.

The second episode in Sega’s 2.5D Sonic 4 series (the first episode of which recently launched on Android) will bring Tails into the mix, with special attacks available for Sonic and Tails together. A trailer for the game has recently been released, showing off some of the game’s new levels. We’ll have more on this game as it approaches release.
