DICE To Introduce the “Frostbite GO” Game Engine for Mobile Devices

Earlier today, Battlefield developers DICE launched the official website for their trademark Frostbite technology, a place to learn about the Frostbite team and the games that their technology powers.

Interestingly, the website’s “History” page makes mention of their tech making its way to mobile devices.

“One of our most exciting current projects is called Frostbite Go, a mobile division empowering EA game developers with Frostbite’s proven excellent workflows and features to bring true Frostbite experiences to all major mobile platforms,” reads an excerpt of the text.

EA has stated their intent to use Frostbite tech for a number of upcoming games, including titles from the Battlefield, Need for Speed, Dragon Age and Mass Effect series. It wouldn’t be completely out of the question to see mobile versions of any of these titles.

Currently, Frostbite 2 powers games like Battlefield 3, Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Need for Speed: The Run. During a presentation in San Francisco last  they announced that Battlefield 4, releasing this fall, would be the first game powered by the brand new Frostbite 3 engine.

Though highly unlikely, would you play a mobile version of Battlefield? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks, GameInformer and Pixel Enemy

    Hell yeah i would play a mobile version of Battlefield on mobile (Android) – would you David?

        If FB Go is good enough for phones and tablets, then it’ll be better on the Vita with it’s higher specs and buttons/joysticks. Also, I think the device needs more shooters, since there’s only 4 at the moment.

        On a tablet with a bluetooth controller…totally doable.

      If you ask me, mobile “shooters” need to explore the companion aspects of shooters. I’d love to see a mobile app synergize with a primary platform shooter when it comes to UAV support or artillery support or spotter support.

        It could be pretty neat as long as it’s not required or anything. Just something extra. Hopefully Watch Dogs’ and Destiny’s companion apps work well.

    • It’d be pretty interesting to try out, that’s for sure. I’d be more curious than excited, I think!

    Developers really want to drain your cellphone battery life. Good thing I still have my Samsung Smile so I can’t play those games due to technical issues.

  • MegaMan3k

    Phones and tablets are great for many games … shooters are not one of them. Which isn’t to say that Frostbite Go must be used for shooters, but we all know it probably will.

    Xperia Play Master race reporting in.
    Make that bitch run on our phone or I’ll slap you DICE.

      Should have maybe bought a phone that has even a remote chance of playing 3d games instead of that piece of crap then.

        It can be overclocked quite efficiently and the GPU is almost on par with SG S2.

        Theres numerous other tweaks that juice it up quite significantly.

        Master Race has spoken.
