Nvidia is keen to show industry naysayers that it is dedicated to bolstering support for its upcoming Project Shield console -- and it has signed up Arma studio Bohemia to help it do so.
Bohemia revealed today that it is working on a spin-off title in its popular first-person shooter series called Arma Tactics, with the game due for release in the second quarter of this year.
Notably, Arma Tactics is currently exclusive to the Project Shield handheld, and the Nvidia Tegra 4 platform.
The game is a turn-based strategy title in the same vein as X-Com and Jagged Alliance, with randomized missions and objectives, and story-driven gameplay. Bohemia says that it will make use of both the Shield's touchscreen and gamepad controls.
It's a great sign for the Shield that Nvidia is showing this level of commitment in supporting the hardware, especially at a time when multiple other Android-based consoles like the Ouya and GameStick are due to launch soon.
