What about modern games and gaming platforms? How important is 3D in Games today?
The biggest players on the console market nowadays are Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony. The world is expecting the next generation of consoles that rely heavily on 3D full HD and 4K graphics, precise controls and online multiplayer.
As for the PC games - the hardware is improving constantly and the next generation of NVIDIA and AMD video cards as well as AMD and Intel processors will blast our minds away. Even today a modern PC configuration can easily run a heavy 3D game with 60 FPS without any hassle. Online multiplayer is also important among PC gamers.
There are many platforms that can provide you with high-quality games of any genre on the PC. Steam, Uplay, Origin, Epic Games and many others are not only selling games but helping with the building of gaming communities as well.
A new type of 3D games is on the rise in the last decade. Mobile gaming! With the high demand for more powerful smartphones and tablets, the gaming capabilities of these devices are also constantly improving. Modern mobile GPU's and CPU's allow gamers to enjoy many great 3D games on the go.
There are many choices for your mobile device, no matter if it's running on Android or iOS. Have your kids play their favorite 3d toy game or maybe their favorite 3d coloring games and 3d shape games?
Not a problem! Play first-person shooters, racing games, strategy games - you name it! And all of this is in your pocket!
Modern 3D platform games (consoles, PC, mobile) are entering a new era. AR & VR gaming! In these games, you are truly part of the gameplay. You can interact with any 3D object in the games with ease.
Mixed reality gaming brings 3D into the real world. You can basically play on the go. The capabilities of these technologies will soon allow you to play any game in 3D.
There is another important segment of the gaming market - board games. While most of them are physical games they do rely on 3D. How? Well for starters many board games will have figures which require 3D design and 3D printing.
Also, many of the board games are already re-created as 3D video games thus allowing online multiplayer with friends from all over the world. And let’s not forget the great possibilities that AR and VR can offer! With these technologies, board gaming is taken to the next level.
There are already some platforms like Tilt Five that allow friends to play a unique form of a board game in 3D! The feeling is the same as before as friends are gathered around a table playing and having fun together. And this is improved by bringing a unique point of view to the game to each player allowing them to secretly plan a new strategy for their next turn.
Thus board gaming can offer new experiences, supreme graphics for the maps without the need for large fields (and of course large tables).
All of this entirely in 3D with glamorous virtual effects! And yes - the possibility for online multiplayer is still present. You can play remotely with all your friends. The future for board gaming is here now!
Despite the fact that online multiplayer is on the rise, there is also a never-ending demand for high-quality 3D single-player games. In them, the player plays against the game. To be more challenging, these games need a powerful AI.
Want to beat a tricky boss? That's what we are talking about! Having a virtual co-op with an NPC (non-playable character)?
Again you need a powerful AI to aid you according to your actions. And this is something to expect from the latest 3D games.
