A new, game is available now for users of devices running under Google's Android operating system, specifically optimized for tablet PCs that pack NVIDIA Tegra 2 chips inside, namely Vendetta Online.
The new title comes from award-winning independent game developer Guild Software Inc, and is a space MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game), with intensive 3D graphics.
According to the company, the game
would be able to offer a unique, fast-paced online game experience on all tablet PCs that run under Android.
In this game, players would be able to take sides in massive space battles and long-running wars.
At the same time, the game would offer them the possibility to enjoy casual or cooperative play with their friends, or to trade, mine and craft items.
“We're thrilled to be bringing our long-running PC MMO to the mobile world,” said John Bergman, CEO of Guild Software. “
The portability and power of these new Tegra devices, along with the open development philosophy of the Android platform
, have made it possible for us to create a fully-featured port of the PC gaming experience on a lightweight tablet.”
Vendetta Online for Android can be enjoyed at the moment only on Tegra 2-based tablet PCs that are running under the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, such as the recently launched Motorola XOOM.
The company plans on making further updates to the game, so as to bring it to more devices, including smartphones, which sport smaller screens. Among the other enhancements the game should receive, we can count integrated voice chat.
“The title offers a special single-player mode, currently exclusive to Android, allowing the user to improve their flying skill and participate in mini-games while offline,” Guild Software announced.
At the same time, the game developer announced that Vendetta Online should be included in the Tegra Zone app
as well, the free software that Nvidia released in the Android Market so as to enable users find games for their Tegra-based devices more easily.
