Experts rarely agree on anything, but most are of the opinion that mobile gaming is the future. While mobile games are yet to approach the graphical quality or an immersive experience that a console or PC provides, they are getting there and improving at a frankly dizzying pace. Making this possible are technological advances like 5G, cloud gaming and more powerful chips.
Given that mobile gaming has such a promising future, we went digging for the top trends in the industry and here they are:
Franchising Success-The top mobile trends of this age and a rather successful one at that is to put together new titles that were taken from the most popular/iconic console or PC game franchises. There are lots of such games around and making copies of them for mobile is a sure formula for success. This is especially so given that there are now nearly more mobile devices than people.To ensure the most optimal user experience, developers tweak such mobile-adapted games so as to make gameplay a total breeze. As the technological pace quickens, we can expect to see lots more of such games in the future.
The Novelty Rise- Even at the best of times, the mobile gaming market is more crowded than Westminster Abbey during a royal wedding. To make themselves stand out from the pack, gaming companies strive with all possible zeal to introduce novelties that gamers will rave about. Such novelties might be the nature of the mobile game itself, the characters featured therein and just about anything else that appears most likely to catch the attention of fans. This kind of trend will most likely see greater use in the future and could result in the creation of mobile games of the most fascinating beauty and complexity, as game developers try to one-up one another.
5G Cometh!- The coming of 5G promises to thoroughly shake up the mobile gaming industry and every aspect of our lives too. With 5G in place, the most dynamic gameplay experience ever would be made possible. The possibilities of 5G are scary, overwhelming and totally incredible. While a lot of investments are required to see it come to fruition, there is no holding back 5G!
Using Already Established Franchises To Popularize New Games- The practice of using already established franchises to make new games popular has been going on for a while and will most likely experience a boost in the future. This move makes great sense and is quite shrewd. It serves to compel mobile gamers to try out mobile slot games they would have otherwise not given a second look. Examples of this practice abound and we will most likely see more of it in the next few years.
Streaming Into The Future- The last few years has seen the release of smartphones that pack the latest chips from Qualcomm and are resolutely oriented towards gaming. Such devices tend to cost a pretty penny and for good reason. However, they might soon be obsolete. See, the duo of 5G and cloud gaming will soon make it unnecessary for a smartphone to pack very powerful internal specs and be expensive. 5G and cloud gaming makes for the lowest possible latency, and enables faster internet speeds, with this making it possible for graphically-intensive tasks to be farmed out to servers. This makes it possible for mobile devices to support PC quality games and well might make it unnecessary to buy the most beastly smartphones so as to be able to play the latest games at high frame rates.
