EA Adds AMD Mantle Support To Three New Game Titles
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
AMD recently announced that it will be partnering with EA to bring Mantle to new game titles. AMD already works with EA to bring Mantle to titles such as Battlefield 4 but in the near future AMD and EA will also be cooperating to bring Mantle to Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. All three titles are powered by EA’s Frostbite 3 engine which incidentally also powers Battlefield 4. Those three games now mean that the Mantle API is supported by more than 40 games.
AMD’s Mantle API continues to pick up speed with its adoption. AMD’s Mantle has had some notable successes of late such as being supported by the CryEngine in March (the same engine used by most Crytek games and featured in some Far Cry titles) and being supported by the upcoming Civilization: Beyond Earth title. Despite Microsoft’s announcement of an equivalent low-level API back in late March, DirectX 12, AMD’s Mantle has continued to receive extended attention from game developers.
