Wield the Shield: Zombie Mayhem Comes Back to Life with Project SHIELD

by Will Park

Ever mow down a wild horde of zombies and then have to clean the bits from your grill? Late last year Zombie Driver THD launched for Tegra 3-powered devices and mobile gamers were introduced to pure zombie carnage.

But what happens when the next generation of mobile gaming hotness comes to life? The undead get deader on Project SHIELD.

Exor Studios is giving Zombie Driver THD a full HD overhaul, delivering a ton of mind-blowing optimizations.

When the game comes to life with Tegra 4 enhancements later this year, the 72-core GPU will power real-time dynamic lighting, per-pixel shading with custom per-material specular masks, custom blood splatter and double the zombies.

So whether you’re new to horde blasting, or you’ve already introduced the walking dead to the taste of asphalt, Zombie Driver THD will give you a screaming good time on Project SHIELD.

    Zombie Driver is so much fun…I can’t wait to play it with Project Shield’s controller and GPU!

    So, you expect me to pay a fortune to play an android game? Ok…

    Hi Lucas, you might be happy to hear that Zombie Driver is available on Google Play for just $1.75 🙂

  • http://blogs.nvidia.com/ Will Park

    I completely agree! Zombie Driver is a hoot to play both casually and for extended sessions. Fortunately, I don’t have to wait to play it on Project SHIELD! Sorry, couldn’t resist 🙂

    Hey Will, project shield looks awesome, but I feel the brand is gonna need some exclusive content to the system in order for it to be a success (case and point vita). Do you have any exclusive games for project shield that won’t be available on normal android devices?

    This is awesome 🙂

    Our goal with TegraZone games is to create enhanced versions of games (sometimes exclusive to Tegra) for the Android platform. We’re helping drive innovation by working with developers to inject things like real time physics (rag doll, particle, etc.) , dynamic lighting and shadows, higher textures and custom effects like volumetric smoke and fog, just to name a few 🙂

  • http://blogs.nvidia.com/ Will Park

    Agreed 🙂

    Does this game looks different integra4 than tegra3.

  • http://blogs.nvidia.com/ Will Park

    Yes there are additional enhancements, including dynamic light and shadows, custom blood spatter, double zombies, and enhanced textures (to name a few). These effects are only available via Tegra 4.

    Is there any word on the release date for project shield? Are you guys pointing at a specific time, Will?

  • http://blogs.nvidia.com/ Will Park

    Thanks for your support, Dave. 

    In fact, microphone support is built into the headphone jack. It’s a single combo jack that’s intended to be used with headphones/headsets that include built-in microphones.

    Hi Dean

    We will be shipping in the current quarter of this year (Q2 2013). We aren’t ready to talk more specifically about launch windows at this point. 

    But, make sure you sign up for email updates at http://shield.nvidia.com to get the latest info on Project SHIELD. (Hint: email subscribers may get an exclusive offer at some point 🙂 )

    Thanks for the details. I will definitely sign up! Q2 I believe, if I’m not mistaken, ends in two months so I cross my fingers to see it in June 😀

    Hey super excited about the Shield, was just wondering if there will be any type of remote desktop application along side the streaming of PC Games, was just thinking it would be really awesome especially with emulators or other software, I would understand if it wasn’t possible because of legal reasons and what not, anyways keep up the great work 😀  

  • http://blogs.nvidia.com/ Will Park

    Project SHIELD runs the latest version of the Android Jelly Bean operating system. That means you can run regular Android apps. There are plenty of remote desktop apps that you can use…

    We’re also working on streaming PC games from your desktop to Project SHIELD.

    Hope this helps answer your question! 🙂
