Tegra 4 capabilities shown off in Dead Trigger 2 trailer

Mad Finger Games has released a trailer for its upcoming zombie shooter, Dead Trigger 2, comparing the differences of NVIDIA's mobile processor, the Tegra 3, with the next-generation processor, the Tegra 4.

The trailer demonstrates the game's zombie killing combat, as well as providing before and after shots of the in-game environments, highlighting the differences between the two processors. The extra features include real time reflections in water, dynamic vegetation, cloth simulation, advanced ragdoll physics, volumetric fog, normal maps and specular lighting. The Tegra 4 — used for tablets, smartphones and notebooks — will feature 72 GPUs and a quad-core A15, ARM's new CPU architecture.

Dead Trigger 2 is set in a parallel universe, where gamers must kill hordes of zombies using gadgets and "static weapons for heavy fights or shooting from helicopters." According to Mad Finger Games CEO, Marek Rabas, the zombie-apocalyptic game will play out in real-time.

"On the day of release, we will unveil a world that has battled the ravages of a zombie plague for the past two years," he explained in a statement. "The first players of Dead Trigger 2 will enter into the conflict at this precise moment, while additional players will essentially be stepping aboard a moving train. New players, who download the game a year from now, will find themselves joining in at the third year of the apocalypse."

Dead Trigger 2 was first revealed at NVIDIA's CES 2013 press conference, where a demo of it was shown running on the Tegra 4 mobile processor. The free-to-play zombie shooter is slated for release this summer on iOS and Android devices.
