At a keynote event yesterday, Apple revealed three new iPhone devices, the iPhone XS, XS Max and the iPhone XR. While the XR is a lower-end device for the price-conscious, the XS and the XS Max on the other hand are quite expensive. All three devices pack in the new A12 bionic chip, with 50% more graphics processing power than last year’s devices.
To show off the mobile gaming capabilities of the A12 chip, Bethesda’s Todd Howard showcased the upcoming game based on the popular The Elder Scrolls franchise, The Elder Scrolls: Blades. The main focus of the segment was to highlight how the new technology can improve the gaming experience on smartphones. Howard talked about the OLED display can brilliantly capture a high amount of visual detail in both well lit as well as darker areas of the game. He also discussed the intuitive precision touch controls, highlighting haptic feedbacks for attacks and sword movements.
