Arma Tactics, a turn-based close-combat strategy game, is currently in development as a launch title for NVIDIA's Project SHIELD and other Tegra devices, developer Bohemia Interactive announced today. It will also feature Tegra 4 optimizations, which include enhanced physics, post-processing effects and more.
Arma Tactics has you taking control of a four-member Special Forces team in an environment where things aren't pre-determined or strategies given. You'll have to rely solely on your whits to tackle the game's campaign and objective-based missions while using a range of weaponry against local militia groups and deadly mercenaries. Tactics also boasts achievements, weapon unlocks, leveling and "regularly added" campaigns.
Taking full advantage of Project SHIELD's controller and features, Arma Tactics will utilize the platform's multi-screen mode when connected to a television, "allowing the audience to experience entertaining vantage points that differ from the player's," -- though this feature sounds beneficial even when others aren't around.
A future release on iOS, Android (non-Tegra), PC, Mac and Linux platforms is also possible, though not officially determined at this time.
