By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 27 comments

Seven new games get Gaming Evolved stickers.

AMD has announced a host of new additions to its Gaming Evolved program. AMD formally announced the new titles at an event in San Diego today, and has the games on showcase there. The list of new games added to the program is as follows:

  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow; published by Konami, developed by MercurySteam
  • Final Fantasy XIV; published by Square Enix, developed by Square Enix
  • Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded; published by Replay Games, developed by N-Fusion Interactive
  • Murdered: Soul Suspect; published by Square Enix, developed by Airtight Games
  • Pirate 101; published and developed by KingsIsle Entertainment
  • Shadow of the Eternals; published and developed by Precursor Games
  • Thief; published by Square Enix, developed by Eidos Montreal

AMD's Gaming Evolved program aims to boost PC gaming by partnering with game developers. Titles listed as part of the Gaming Evolved Program are akin to those that launch with Nvidia's The Way It's Meant To Be Played logo. The Gaming Evolved stamp represents AMD's collaboration with game developers to help deliver the best possible experience for gamers and ensure the newest titles run smoothly on AMD hardware.

    I still say it's better to worry more about the hardware/price rather than the games included. I can only imagine that AMD gets a pretty nice deal doing this, though.

    No "Watch Dogs"? Bummer! I guess that "leak" from a while back was fake.

    Hopefully they come out with another revision around the holiday season. I mean they did say they were going to do BATTLEFIELD 4.

    The "Gaming Evolved Program" is different from "The Never Settle Program". We don't know what games AMD is going to be offering 'if' they have another "Never Settle" deal.

    A rather suspect list of titles that I doubt anyone is seriously looking forward to. Maybe Thief will be cool.

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - meh
    Final Fantasy XIV - horribly botched launch and a asian rpg, so its grind heavy with little end game content
    Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded- the good days are far behind this game
    Murdered: Soul Suspect - looks interesting but only saw a teaser so far
    Pirate 101 - this is a fisher price my first mmo right?
    Shadow of the Eternals - eternal darkness successor from what im hearing in the 9 minutes of gameplay thing on youtube... it may be good, but this is SO not a game i would play on a pc. they tricked people that their system was breaking, among other things, and while thats cool and all on a console, that is not something i want on the pc
    Thief - i have heard good and really bad about this game, but nothing to show for it yet.

    but thats just my opinion on them.

    Gaming Evolved =/= Never Settle Reloaded. Expect to see the latter arrive whenever the next generation of Radeon GPUs are released

    Nvidia may have made a huge mistake by not developing hardware for the next-gen consoles and looking at this i dont see a chance of me buying an nvidia gpu again for a couple of years now(Tressfx tomb raider, remember) but again thats just me.

    Not sure how your outrage is justified by that list of games, or TressFX for that matter.

    There are those who question whether AMD has made a huge mistake by focusing all its resources on console gaming at the expense of its PC gaming efforts.

    The leak was listing Grid 2, Company of Heroes 2, Total War Rome 2, Splinter Cell Blacklists, Lost Planet 3, BF4, Raven's Cry and Watch Dogs.

    http://www.pcper.com/news/Graphics-Cards/Upcoming-Never-Settle-Bundle-Games-Leaked

    So from the list:
    Grid 2 was sponsored by intel
    BF4 i heard nothing official yet but most likely will be amd gaming evolved title
    COH 2 and Total war both are Sega's but so far i can find any info linking those two with amd gaming evolved title. The same goes with Raven's Cry.
    Splinter Cell Blacklists are confirm to be nvidia title.
    As for watch dogs it seems it will go to nvidia as well when the game was listed as one of game nvidia work with during E3
    Lost Planet 3 allready appear in geforce.com game section so it might be nvidia title as well.

    Some people mentioning gaming evolved and never settle program are separate initiative but did the bundle giving away non gaming evolved title?

    The thing I find funny about Gaming Evolved is that the games usually perform better on NVidia.
    Sorry man, this is only true for Saint Row 3. SR3 is an exception for unknown reason. I put the blame on developer, not AMD. I havent of other Gaming evolved title had this issue.

    Thief is the only game worth buying on that list.
