SAN FRANCISCO, March 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Game Developers Conference – Reaching 35 million players in just ten months, Game Insight announces that Android players of its critically-acclaimed 4v4 team-based shooter Guns of Boom can now experience a new augmented reality (AR) spectator mode that allows eSports viewers to experience the action from every angle.
"We've worked closely with Google to bring a truly unique eSports spectator experience to Android devices," said Anatoly Ropotov, CEO of Game Insight. "Built with ARCore, Guns of Boom's Spectator Mode gives fans the ability to watch their friends and clanmates do battle from an outside perspective. They'll get to see the entire experience unfold in front of them at once, focusing on whatever action they choose. It's like setting up a real-time diorama with plenty of firepower on any surface."
Google is showcasing Guns of Boom's Spectator Mode in the new dedicated AR section of the Google Play Store, alongside other projects that have utilized ARCore in their development. Game Insight has also confirmed that they are partnered with Xiaomi and Huawei to bring Spectator Mode to Guns of Boom players on Android devices in China.
Other notable recent Guns of Boom updates include deep localization in both traditional and simplified Chinese to support the game's recent launch in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and the launch of a public beta for their upcoming PRO Play Mode, designed in partnership with leading eSports teams NaVi, Virtus.pro and SK Gaming.
"Like Spectator Mode, the addition of PRO Play to Guns of Boom is a big part of our support for the eSports community," added Ropotov. "People love the action and fair competition that Guns of Boom offers -- whether they're watching or playing."
The free Spectator Mode update for Guns of Boom is available on the Google Play Store, and can be enjoyed on the more than 100 million Android devices that support ARCore. To learn more about Guns of Boom, visit the game's official website or game-insight.com.
