Overwolf, a software company, announced a collaboration with Intel to help make PC games playable on Windows tablets. A fully functional demo will be introduced to the public during Game Developers Conference (GDC) at the Intel booth. The public launch of the product is expected later this year.
“We found it frustrating that while tablets can technically run games smoothly, many games aren’t playable because they’re designed to be played using a mouse and a keyboard, and not a touch interface,” said Uri Marchand, CEO of Overwolf. “In the near future, owners of Intel Atom processor-based Windows tablets will be able play PC games they install on their machine, after installing Overwolf. We feel that this will have a huge impact on tablet purchasing decisions made by gamers.”
“We’re committed to delivering industry leading compute performance on our Intel Atom processor platforms to provide the very best gaming experience on tablets,” said René Torres, Director of Marketing, Mobile Communications Group at Intel. “Overwolf’s technology introduces a sleek and flexible solution that provides a great gaming experience in multiple gaming genres and truly brings PC gaming to tablets in a whole new way.”
Besides being able to play the games, the user will also be able enjoy Overwolf’s in-game social features that include social network connectivity like Facebook, Skype, Twitter and more.
