Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery brings jump scares to the real world with official Android release

Last month we learned that the next Five Nights at Freddy's release would enter into early access in November, and thanks to a recent press announcement, it has been revealed that the official launch of Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery will take place today. It would seem early access was opened worldwide this past Friday, and today marks the official release. Much like the previous titles in the series, you'll have to confront malfunctioning animatronics in an attempt to survive their horrors, but this time around, you'll do so in a game made exclusively for mobile devices that uses augmented reality to bring its jump scares to the real world.

Call of Duty: Mobile update adding controller support, zombie mode, and more

An official Call of Duty: Mobile account on Reddit has revealed that a significant update is coming to the game later today. It's slated to arrive at 21:00 PST, and this update will include controller support, a new zombie mode, and new maps. A new Battle Pass is also coming, but it won't arrive until November 25th. Back when I covered the release of Call of Duty: Mobile in October, I was delighted with the shooter, though the missing controller support was a sticking point. Thankfully Activision has been listening to its fans, so the announcement for today's update is indeed very welcome news.

Football Manager 2020 arrives on the Play Store in two flavors, Mobile and Touch

Last year I covered the releases of Sega's Football Manager Mobile and Touch management games, and it would appear that it's that time of year again since Football Manager 2020 Mobile and Football Manager 2020 Touch have been officially arrived on the Google Play Store. These yearly tandem releases offer similar yet separate gameplay mechanics. The Mobile title exists as a tweaked mobile version themed after the PC and console experience, and the Touch version is a slimmed-down affair that's a little more suitable for play on tablets and quick sessions. Both of these titles require an upfront payment, much like a premium release, though in-app purchases are still included.

(Update: Game cancelled) Rush Wars is Supercell's next combat strategy game, beta now available in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand

Supercel started to hint at its next combat strategy game last Friday with a teaser tweet from an account named "Rush Wars" that contained the number "26" and the word "beta." As of this morning, we now know that this title is currently available as a beta release on the Google Play Store in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. From the looks of it, this is a game that combines many of the mechanics found in earlier Supercell releases, so if you're a fan of the studio's previous work, it appears that Rush Wars doesn't stray too far from what's made the developer so famous.

NBA 2K Playgrounds beta available in select regions

NBA 2K Playgrounds started as a 2K NBA series for consoles, but it would appear that the brand is coming to Android. The new NBA 2K Playgrounds listing on the Play Store recently arrived for beta testing in select regions. More or less, it would appear that 2K has given the series the free-to-play treatment for mobile play since this beta version already contains in-app purchases that range up to $99.99 per item. The game has been designed to offer fast-paced 2v2 matches for an arcade feel, and of course, you'll have to collect NBA players to pad out your roster.

[Update: Out now] Monolisk is a new dungeon crawler available for pre-registration, and it looks great

Monolisk recently arrived on the Play Store as a pre-registration release, and I couldn't help but notice how good it looks, which is why I'm writing this very article. The game is described as a fantasy mobile ARPG, CCG, and dungeon builder, all wrapped up in a single package, which sounds interesting enough, but clearly, the art design takes center stage here.

Call of Duty: Mobile officially arrives on Android, and it's actually not a bad game

Back in March Activision and Tencent officially announced Call of Duty: Mobile at the 2019 Game Developers Conference, and in the middle of last month we learned that the mobile shooter would be officially released on the Google Play Store on October 1st, which means the game is now available on Android. As expected, this is a free-to-play release. In-app purchases, loot boxes, and a premium pass are included, not to mention a plethora of cosmetic items and an expensive in-game currency. Still, the amount of nostalgia offered in the title is hard to ignore, and the gameplay luckily holds up, which is why the game is definitely worth a look.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West, and you can pre-register for the closed beta today

Square Enix just announced that its free-to-play role-playing game Dragon Quest of the Stars will come to the West in early 2020. On top of this announcement, the developer has stated that starting today mobile gamers in select regions can register to participate in a closed beta test for the Android version of the game. Supposedly this is a "critically acclaimed" title in Japan that's racked up over 20-million installs, though, from the looks of it, the game is a casual RPG with a popular brand slapped on top.

Mario Kart Tour finally arrives on Android, and it’s easily the worst game in the series

At the tail end of August we learned that Mario Kart Tour would land on Android on September 25th, and early this morning, the racer was officially released on the Play Store. Now, the thing to remember is that this is a game that has been delayed more than a few times, with announced dates coming and going, and now that I've played the end product, it's clear why. At its core, Mario Kart Tour is yet another bland gacha game with a famous brand slapped on top, but things get much worse than this, so strap in, because this ride's about to get very bumpy.

NBA 2K20 is available on the Play Store, complete with controller support

Two weeks ago 2K released the companion app MyNBA2K20 on the Google Play Store, which is a yearly ritual that usually signals the launch of the annual release for the NBA 2K series is right around the corner. We already knew that the console and PC version of NBA 2K20 would arrive on September 6th, but it looks like the mobile version is here a day ahead of its brethren.
