It would appear that many people are greatly anticipating the release of Eve Echoes, and even though we still haven't heard word-one about an official release date for the sandbox MMO, development is now delayed thanks to the coronavirus. As of this morning, the official Eve Echoes account on Twitter has stipulated that the COVID-19 epidemic has "hindered the developer's schedule," and while an official release date has yet to be decided, the game is expected to be launched at the end of 2020.
Welcome to the roundup of the new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so. Today I have the soft-launch of a new Rick and Morty game from Adult Swim, a new rhythm game from Atari, and a gorgeous puzzler that serves as the sequel to Krystopia: A Puzzle Journey. So without further ado, here are the new and notable Android games released during the week of July 20th, 2020.
OnePlus has been making a big deal out of the fact that its newest phones support Fortnite at 90fps, and so the company sent me an OnePlus 8 to put the game through its paces, and then report on my findings. As a seasoned PC gamer who's been playing on a 144Hz monitor for the last few years, I've been eagerly awaiting the day I could explore a high-frame-rate Android game at Android Police, though in the back of my mind I was always worried that mobile wouldn't be able to keep up with demanding frame-rates when gaming. Once you start pushing for the best frame-rates possible, graphics will ultimately have to be toned down, which is precisely the case for Fortnite on the OnePlus 8.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. Typically the end of the week is the busiest time for sales, and today does not disappoint if you're looking for some quality games. First and foremost, Square Enix is offering Romancing SaGa 2 at a drastic discount, but if classic JRPGs aren't your thing, then perhaps you'll enjoy the fantastically evil puzzler Slayaway Camp. If you prefer action games, then Pixelbite's sci-fi wild west adventure Space Marshals may be more your speed. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 23 temporarily free and 58 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.
Atari just announced the arrival of Beat Legend: AVICII, and it's described as a rhythm-action experience, so it's essentially a rhythm game. As you would expect, this release contains many of the top tracks from world-renowned DJ and producer Avicii (Tim Bergling), such as Without You, Wake Me Up, and Levels. Better yet, this is a premium release, which means you can purchase Beat Legend: AVICII from the Play Store for $2.99.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. I have a solid list of sales today, including a bunch of board game adaptations from Marmalade Game Studio. On top of this, the quirky arcade simulator Peace, Death is on sale today, along with Hangman Premium, and Beholder. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 30 temporarily free and 51 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.
Adult Swim has a followup to its three-year-old gacha game Pocket Mortys, but it's currently in testing, so it's only available in select regions on the Play Store despite just popping up. This game is titled Rick and Morty: Clone Rumble, and much like Pocket Mortys, you'll once again be tasked with collecting characters, but this time around, you'll get to collect a bunch of different personalities from the show (such as Mr. Poopybutthole), instead of cloned Mortys.
Just ahead of the Asus ROG Phone 3 announcement later today, Lenovo has unveiled a rival in the form of its first Legion-branded gaming smartphone. The two Snapdragon 865 Plus devices are set to go head-to-head for mobile gaming supremacy — Lenovo has a few neat tricks up its sleeve including 90W charging, a novel side-mounted pop-up camera, and a 144Hz display.
Almost a year ago, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour on Android, and the game clearly wasn't ready for prime time since it was missing a boatload of features, such as multiplayer and landscape support. Over the last eleven months, Nintendo has slowly improved the game, adding in a much-requested multiplayer feature this past March. Yesterday, Nintendo tweeted that the mobile kart racer would receive a landscape mode whenever the next update for the game dropped, which landed early this morning as version 2.4.0.
