SHADOWGUN: DEADZONE beta now available exclusively for Tegra 3 players


Have a Tegra 3 device? Want to get your hands on a great online third-person shooter before everyone else? Madfinger games has informed us that SHADOWGUN: DEADZONE is now in the Google Play Store as a public beta.

There aren’t many catches to participate, though there are device restrictions. You can only get in on the fun if you have a Tegra 3 device. Before the mumbling and grumbling begins we already have a nice explanation from Madfinger’s CEO Mark Rabas:

“With the Beta Test we wanted to achieve results that could best help us.  By working closely with the NVIDIA team and the Tegra 3 technology itself, we are able to Beta test SHADOWGUN: DEADZONE very efficiently which will help us provide an amazing gaming experience at launch.“

That’s very understandable, I’d say. And fret not — the full game itself will be out in a few weeks’ time for all to enjoy. In the meantime, those who want to participate in this free beta have to remember one key thing: it’s a beta.

Things may not work the way they should and you may encounter bugs or glitches. This is in no way, shape, or form indicative of how the final game will perform.

Content will be limited so you may not be able to access all the maps and weapons that will be available in the final game. Finally, Madfinger is working on a limited amount of servers so multiplayer queues may take longer than usual.

So if you’ve got the hardware and you understand what to expect here be sure to find the download (113MB, so turn WiFi on) in the Google Play Store. The idea is to submit feedback, too, so be sure to hit this email address up with suggestions and bug reports should you run into any. Proper participation will help the entire community out once the game is ready for consumption.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  7. Why candy they just make a game compatible with every processor that has enough power to run it.

    1. They will, but the beta is specific to the Tegra cpu since Nvidia is working with them on this. I don’t think nvidia would be a great help with ironing out the kinks associated with their competitors chip sets. You know? This is just a beta, not a full release.

  8. It’s a good game but I still like Critical Strike Portable more.
