Wondering what the Vulkan API is all about on mobile? If you're getting a Note 7, you can finally experience it firsthand.
So, to get you excited to play games with the newly announced Galaxy Note 7’s Vulkan abilities, Samsung and Google are offering the Galaxy Game Pack. This bundle includes $400 worth of titles and in-app-purchases in the Google Play Store, including four Vulkan API-ready games. The full list includes:
- Need for Speed No Limits
- Olympus Rising
- Nonstop Knight
- Empire: Four Kingdoms
- Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
- MARVEL Contest of Champions
- Asphalt 8: Airborne
- Hungry Shark World
- Angry Birds Pop Bubble Shooter
- Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes
- Sims City Free Play
- Clash of Kings
Why this matters: Samsung’s been touting its handset's compatibility with the Vulkan API since the launch of the Galaxy S7, but there have been so few game titles to actually show its prowess. Samsung’s ready to put its money where its mouth is, so to speak, and the first order of business is getting its users to actively experience the Vulkan API’s capabilities so that there’s weight behind all that active marketing.
The game pack will be officially available to Galaxy Note 7 users beginning August 20 through January 31, 2017.
