SHADOWGUN: DeadZone leaves beta, brings epic multiplayer action to all

tagged , , , ,

Madfinger Games’ epic new multiplayer shooter SHADOWGUN: DeadZone has officially left beta today following a brief stint in public beta. The recently released sequel offers some of the most impressive graphics we’ve seen on a mobile title, and its complex and robust gameplay make it a compelling option for any avid gamer.

Of course players can earn perks as they battle their enemies, ultimately allowing for a great deal of customization and equipment variability. What’s better is that the game’s multiplayer mode isn’t just any boring 1V1 duel. Instead, gamers will be placed in 12-player tactical matches, complete with rankings and voice support, effectively matching console-like offerings.

Unfortunately, the game falls into the “freemium” category, so you’ll most likely be forced to make an in-app purchase at some point. Regardless, SHADOWGUN: DeadZone is an incredible mobile game definitely worth trying out.  Be sure to catch the official launch video, as well as the Play Storedownload link after the break. » Read the rest

Good news for those gamers that want to get their 3rd person, multiplayer frag on: Shadowgun Deadzone just released as an open public beta. This game was previously only available as a private beta.  The only catch; you need to be rocking a Tegra 3 device. Madfinger, the game’s developer, is inviting everyone to help make their game better with this beta. They do throw the typical beta disclaimers out there such as missing features and content. Additionally, they want to remind all that they are operating on a limited number of servers at the moment and to be patient when trying to fire up a game. Some highlights of the beta are four playable characters, two maps, two game modes, and seven weapons including an interesting name for a rocket launcher. There are also a multitude of “gadgets” to aid in your frag. Give it a go and let us know how it is.

Apparently you don’t need a Tegra 3 device to enjoy extended effects

by Robert Nazarian on

With the release of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, we’ve seen a few games that are either only compatible with devices that have the Tegra 3 or sometimes the game is compatible with many devices, but certain aspects like “extended effects” are only compatible for those same Tegra 3 devices. One example is the recent release of Dead Trigger. Upon the release, Madfinger games told us that it’s available for most devices, but if you want the extended effects, you need a Tegra 3-powered device. Some of these extended effects include enhanced water, specular lighting, volumetric fog and ragdoll physics.

The interesting thing is that you really don’t need a Tegra 3 device to enjoy these extended effects. XDA member SnakeHaveYou found a way to enable other non Tegra 3 devices to be able to play Dead Trigger, but enjoy the same extended effects that only Tegra 3 devices get. With a rooted device, a file explorer and some xml editing, you will be good to go. In a nutshell, the game is set up to see if you have a Tegra 3, and if you do, it allows you access to the extended effects. Hit the break for the instructions.

MADFINGER games was able to maximize what the Tegra 3 offers by adding ragdoll physics, volumetric fog, specular lighting, and enhanced fluid and water.
