By William O'Neal - Tue, Jun 14, 2016

It’s been a year since we launched the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV and what a year it’s been. While fans and press alike have lauded SHIELD Android TV as an industry-leading Streaming Media Player, many have also come to really appreciate its prowess as a next-gen gaming console.

Powered by the NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor, folks can experience console class gaming natively on SHIELD. And to this end, this week we’re excited to announce a new game that is coming to SHIELD Android gaming store: Borderlands 2.

Borderlands 2 is coming soon to SHIELD! Boasting four playable character classes (each with their own unique abilities and skill), Borderlands 2 takes place some five years after the action of its predecessor. With new gameplay elements, increased character customization options, and the new “Badass” rank system, fans of this franchise will welcome this addition to the SHIELD family of games. To sweeten the news, Borderlands 2 as well as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! Will also be coming to SHIELD Tablet!

Besides Borderlands, we are happy to announce that Batman: The Telltalle Series and QBert Rebooted will also be coming to SHIELD! Combined with recent launches such as Resident Evil 5, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, Ultimate Chicken Horse, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, SHIELD owners have their hands full with console class gaming.

Even More “Day-and-Date” Releases!

In addition to console class games in the SHIELD Android store, we’ve also recently launched Day-and-Date titles that users can stream instantly on SHIELD with GeForce NOW! Shadwen was released on SHIELD on May 17th while Hard Reset Redux was released on SHIELD on June 3rd. In addition to those, Definitive Editions of both Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide joined the SHIELD family one week after day and date launch!

GeForce Now users can also look forward to playing Mighty No. 9 and Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens instantly when they release later this month.
