Default New games announced for Nvidia's Tegra 4

The new website dedicated to the Nvidia's shield features some unannounced games like:

-Arma tactics (Take control of a four-member Special Forces team in this turn-based, close-combat strategy game. With an open-world storyline, it's up to you to decide how to play through your missions and objectives. Whether facing skilled mercenaries or disorganized local militia, your strategy is the only thing that will get you through hours of intense ever-changing action.)

-Blood Sword (Blood Sword: Sword of Ruin THD is an action-adventure RPG game. Hack and slash your way through hordes of monsters set in the ancient mystic times. Level up your hero and battle ancient evil. The game includes dynamic sound effects, high-end 3D features, and a unique TPS view during boss battles.)

Ports:

-Burn Zombie Burn (Burn Zombie Burn! is a fast-paced action game in which the player must survive against a never-ending horde of zombies. The game's protagonist is Bruce who must battle the zombies across all six maps and all three modes — including defense mode in which Bruce must defend his girlfriend Daisy from the undead horde.)

-Rochard (Rochard is a game where manipulating gravity and using the G-Lifter (a gravity device used to easily move weighty objects around) are crucial elements for success. With the help of his sci-fi mining tools and taking advantage of the laws of physics, the protagonist John Rochard will carry you through a game packed with puzzles, action, humor, great music, excellent level design, and a story rich of twists.)

I'm sure will see them coming to IOS too. Arma is surprising considering the nature of the IP on pc.

Great find! Wow the conduit is from High Voltage Software and a port from the wii game. They know how to push the hardware, can't wait to see what they will bring to ios/android!

Hawken could be coming to ios too:

I've read the article. However, I don't think Hawken is coming to Android! Why? Simply because Hawken is being developed using Unreal Development Kit (UDK) - the free version of Unreal Engine 3 (UE3). Both of UDK and UE3 do support iOS, but only UE3 supports Android (while UDK does not). Except for a possibility that NVIDIA is funding Adhesive Games to license UE3 for Hawken (so that the game can be ported to NVIDIA's Project Shield), otherwise, Hawken cannot come to Android.

However, UDK does support iOS! Therefore, Hawken can come to iOS (if Adhesive Games wants, of course!). iPhone 5 and iPad 4 might not be strong enough to handle the game, but it will not be the case with newer devices such as iPhone 5S and iPad 5! The lack of a physical keyboard is not a major concern, I think!

Hawken looks like another iPhone 4+ game. No clue why you would think even A5 devices couldn't handle it; the game certainly looks nice but isn't all that impressive compared to many other iOS titles.

Edit: ah it's a PC game. Interesting. Was the T4 actually running the full game or was a port just discussed?

Yes, it is an AAA PC title and is quite heavy to run on A5 devices, I think so. Project Shield (Tegra 4) was actually running the full game. Kotaku said that it was actually the Android version of Hawken (not streaming from PC), but I don't think so because UDK does not support Android!

Edit: Oh, the Android version of Hawken has been officially confirmed by the developer: http://community.playhawken.com/news...-gaming-device (or: https://twitter.com/PlayHAWKEN/statu...85952846008320.). I don't know why the game is coming to Android! UDK does not support Android!
