The multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game Vainglory is launching their 2015 Autumn season of play. With the latest update to the game, taking it to version 1.9, Vainglory will now use a seasonal structure. During the seasons, players will have to do their best to rise up in rank and rack up achievements before the season ends, which is slated to be sometime in early January for the new season. As part of the latest update, developer Super Evil Megacorp put a lot of attention into the Android app version to help expand the audience.

The wait for Need for Speed: No Limits has been lengthy to say the least. Electronic Arts released the mobile game’s first trailer at the start of the year and named Spring 2015 as a ballpark release date.

With Android spreading to a wide variety of devices and form factors, one of the challenges for developers is figuring out how to take advantage of new platforms.

The world of Pokémon will be getting an infusion of virtual and real world gaming fun thanks to a new title called Pokémon GO that is in the works. The interaction between digital space and meat space is on its way to being a reality for Pokémon fans thanks to some help from Google’s – er, Alphabet’s – Niantic Labs. You may be familiar with Niantic Labs as the creator of the popular Ingress game and it appears Pokémon GO will get a touch of that same technology.
Minecraft Pocket Edition got a pretty major update today that adds in two new features; controller support, and cross-platform multiplayer for up to five people.

Acer is pushing all the limits at IFA 2015 this year. They already announced a new insane gaming tablet and now a gaming phone to go with it. Both the phone and tablet look awesome with a black and red color scheme.
Acer’s anticipated Predator 8 gaming tablet finally has an official release date and pricing, and it’s pretty reasonable for something that’s designed primarily to play games.
The Predator 8 sports an 8-inch 1080p display with an Intel Atom CPU and 2 GB of RAM, plus options for 32 or 64 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. The screen is touted as being incredibly precise with a 100% NTSC color gamut rating, too. Acer has included four front-facing speakers on the aluminum frame of the device, plus enhanced tactile feedback for gaming.
