Earlier this week, AMD announced that several new PC games would be part of the company's Gaming Evolved program. First revealed in 2010, AMD's Gaming Evolved program is the equivalent to NVIDIA's The Way It's Meant To Be Played initiative. The AMD program works with game developers to implement new technologies and to optimize games for AMD hardware.
Specifically, AMD has announced that it has worked with developers under its Gaming Evolved program to develop the following games:
- Castlevania: Lord of Shadow
- Final Fantasy XIV
- Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded
- Murdered: Soul Suspect
- Pirate 101
- Shadow of the Eternals
These games are upcoming PC games, some of which will be available as soon as next month while others are still in-development. AMD worked with MercuryStream, Square Enix, N-Fusion Interactive, Airtight Games, KingsIsle Entertainment, Precursor Games, and Eidos Montreal respectively.

These next generation games should work well on AMD platforms as a result of the developers' partnership with AMD. Hopefully that means next-generation visuals and games that will work best on the PC with all the usual customization and graphics settings options that PC gamers expect.
I’d like to think that
I’d like to think that “Evolved Gaming” would mean “it works equally as freaking fantastic, regardless of card. Period”.
I would tend to agree, but
I would tend to agree, but with ff14s launch a few weeks away, i anxiously await equal-price card benchmarks. Im a beta tester of ff14, and im gungho enough to buy a card that works best for it, regardless of brand.
I wonder if any of these
I wonder if any of these games will become part of the Never Settle Bundle. I’d really like it if AMD devalued Castlevania by including it with a card bundle, cause then I could get it on Ebay on the cheap. Yes, I actually kinda want to play Lords of Shadow.
ffXIV us pretty nice in Beta,
