NVIDIA showing off five new Tegra 3 games at E3


NVIDIA knows graphics. Their graphics cards are powering the most powerful gaming computers in the world, and are also found in the high-end Android tablets. Tegra 3 takes mobile gaming to a whole new level, a fact NVIDIA is proud to show off every time we hear from them. Gaming on Tegra 3 is awesome, often coming close to a true console gaming experience.

Today, at the E3 show in Los Angeles, NVIDIA is showing off 5 games that are coming soon to Tegra devices, optimized for the Tegra 3 platform. Full descriptions of the game straight from NVIDIA follow, and some of them should be available on the Play Store for your Tegra 3 device very soon.

Dead Trigger

The world has collapsed and meat-eating zombies are after you! This first person shooter takes advantage of the Tegra 3 processor to provides exclusive effects like enhanced water, specular lighting, volumetric fog and ragdoll physics.

Puddle THD

The hot Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network console game is now being shown off on an NVIDIA Tegra 3 device at E3. The game mechanics are simple and intuitive — guide the water to a target destination through tilt controls. On Tegra 3, you’ll get higher resolution textures, advanced fluid effects, better shadows and advanced physics effects.

Demons’ Score THD

A break-beat action game that integrates music with battles. It’s developed using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3 to produce high-quality 3D graphics and a user interface optimized for smartphones and tablets. Tegra 3-exclusive features include higher resolution textures, advanced bloom effects, rim lighting, dynamic shadows and depth-of-field effects.

Bounty Arms

This exciting 3D side-scrolling action game will be playable for the first time at E3. Open-Reset and Luma Arcade are working closely with NVIDIA to create Tegra-exclusive enhancements for Bounty Arms on Android, tapping the graphics potential of Tegra 3.  These enhancements include visual and performance upgrades and exclusive content like co-op play and advanced particle effects.

Heroes Call

Heroes Call is a playable action RPG that brings next generation gaming to Tegra devices. Lush graphics, deep quests, multiple characters and varied abilities make Heroes Call an experience unlike any you’ve seen on your mobile device before. The Tegra 3 exclusive features here are higher resolution light maps, spectacular maps on character weapons and armor and additional physics interaction on objects and particles.

Final Thoughts

We don’t know when these games will be coming to Tegra devices, though we’re obviously pretty excited to see them make their debut. I’m personally looking forward to Dead Trigger and Heroes Call. We will bring you more information about these games as we learn them. If you happen to be at E3, be sure to check out NVIDIA’s booth to grab a sneak peak.

    Sweet. I’m glad nVidia is behind this push, I mean would the Android world have as many (decent/good/great) games as we do now if it weren’t for nVidia? I know there are other companies that produce great stuff (Madfinger, Gameloft, etc) but nVidia seems to really be trying to push the portable market. Of course it makes perfect sense since they also make the Tegra line of processors, but still, thanks nVidia!

      Agree! More serious games like these will only help Android become a top contender for game developers.

        But if only Sony would hurry up with putting their stuff on Android! And if Nintendo put, say, SNES titles on Android, I would go ape shit!

      And is Dead Trigger a Madfinger game? I see the two Shadowgun references in the background of the screenshot…

      • Adrien C.
