Apple shows first multiplayer game using ARApple and Directive Games partner on a new augmented-reality game, Machines, that allows players to compete in a multiplayer mode.
Earlier this summer with the introduction of airkit, Apple changed gaming forever. What we're about to show you is one of the world's first competitive multi-player games designed to be played entirely in augmented reality. This is the machines. In the game players battle their friends. In real time, in real time, either online or around the table in the same room. My friend and co-founder Andrea is preparing a match for us where we play the rebels against the dominators. [MUSIC] What's really cool is that where the metal tool on the new iPhone, we are able tp experience games in an entirely new way. Since players are able to view the game in any angle, our content has to be incredibly detailed. With the power of the new iPhone, And unreal support for metal two. We are able to render the entire level on screen in amazing 1.2 milliion polygons. Also allowing you to move in close to really appreciate the high visual fidelity. And just look at those 4K textures. It's gorgeous. Now shall we go into the game? [SOUND] AR allows us to use our position in the real world to gain a tactical advantage. Just look how [UNKNOWN] is moving towards this cave, lining up his targets This is something that would have been hard to do with [UNKNOWN]. [SOUND] It's like you're not just controlling the game, you're in the game. Another awesome addition to the experience is spatial audio. If you go close to the action the sound increases. [SOUND] And if a solid object gets between you and the action, the sound is occluded perfectly. And with the stereo speakers on the new iPhone, this is truly amazing. And it looks like we're getting hit pretty hard. [SOUND] Yes, the force fields protect their heroes. Now actually fire on their enemies, move closer to their base, I get ready for the fatal blow with our super weapon The [UNKNOWN] is there. Can you take it out in the same time? [MUSIC] [SOUND] What you just saw, is an amazing evolution in our game surf playing experience. Thanks to the combination of AR Kit and Metal 2 on the brand new iPhone. We can't way for you to play it. Look for The Machines on the app store this month, exclusively on iOS. Thank you. [APPLAUSE]
