Super Evil Megacorp releases a beta version of Vainglory for Vulkan-enabled devices

The Vulkan graphics API is a big deal for mobile developers, since its direct GPU access allows for complex graphics to be rendered with a considerably lower hit to the processor, and thus a lower overhead on the hardware and battery life. A few devices like the SHIELD family and Samsung's 7 series already supported Vulkan several months ago, but Nougat now features full support for all updated Android 7.0 devices. Developer Super Evil Megacorp, which turned heads last year with its Vainglory mobile MOBA, now has a beta version that uses the Vulkan API.

Disney says it is no longer accepting new in-app purchases for either games, but they will remain available to play until the end of the month. The original game has already been taken off Google Play, but its sequel has remained up, at least for the time being.
