Hands down Shadowgun is one of the most graphically intense mobile games out there (for your cellphone). I mean, it was used to benchmark nVida’s new Quad-core processor. That must mean something, right? If you’ve read my original review of Shadowgun you would know I mentioned one thing it was missing; that was multiplayer. Now it looks like the new Shadowgun Deadzone will be multiplayer. We can expect the game to be released in Q1 of 2012.
Here’s the trailer for Shadowgun Deadzone.
UPDATE: Here is the press release from CES 2012.
