Wallace & Gromit are coming to Android in an augmented reality game

Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up is an upcoming augmented reality game for mobile, and it's slated for release in the UK in the fall of 2020 and will be released worldwide at a later date. Since this is a fresh announcement, only a few details have been shared, and so far, we know the game will be animated through CG, and that fans will get to join the duo in their latest business venture as an employee of the Spick & Spanners. Ideally, the game will provide a home-based experience (as in this AR game can easily be played at home), and will support the majority of modern smartphones.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are first phones to run Fortnite at 90 FPS

OnePlus phones are among the most powerful around and sport high refresh rate displays, so it makes sense to target mobile gamers. There are already a number of titles that can be played at 90 or 120 frames per second, and now Fortnite is joining the list.

Doom and Doom II updated with better touch controls, adjustable FPS limits, expanded controller support, and more

Bethesda recently updated the Android versions of Doom and Doom II to bring a bunch of new features to the titles, such as tweaked touch controls, support for adjustable frame rate limits, not to mention physical controller support along with mouse and keyboard support. Heck, Bethesda even added a toggle for Vsync (a rarity for a mobile game), for those of you that would like to reduce either title's input latency. So no matter how you slice it, it would appear that Bethesda has actually improved both games, though it could be argued that all of these features should have been available in both titles from the jump.
