AMD’s Mantle has had a bit of a low-key presence this year as compared to 2013 when DICE pushed it as a strong alternative to DirectX 11 (and the future DX 12). This coincided with the release of Battlefield 4 and though things have been quiet since then, AMD has announced three new titles that will support the API.
These include Visceral Games’ Battlefield: Hardline, which focuses on cops vs. robbers; Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, the next big open world title in the Dragon Age franchise; and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare on the PC, which is interesting since it released for the Xbox One (that supports DirectX 11 at this point). According to AMD, these three games will “absolutely fly” on Radeon hardware.
While Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be out later this month for PC, Battlefield: Hardline and Dragon Age: Inquisition will be out in October for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Thoughts on all three supporting Mantle? Let us know in the comments.
