Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Crysis 3 and Doom 3 are coming to Android later this year

After hitting the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Gearbox Software's Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be launching on NVIDIA's Shield Android TV, which also doubles as a game console thanks to the presence of the latest Tegra X1 mobile chip. NVIDIA is making a content-curated GRID store that features the "best of the best" games tailored for Shield. Other titles that are set to launch on the console include Doom 3 BFG Edition, Crysis 3, Resident Evil 5, War Thunder and Metal Gear Rising: Revengenance.

At the time of launch, over 50 games will be available on the Shield console, including titles like Half Life: 2 and Contrast. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang mentioned that the Maxwell architecture of Tegra X1 allows visually intensive games to run on the console. Featuring Tegra X1 with 256 GPU cores, the console offers double the performance of an Xbox 360 at one-fifth the power consumption.
