Just when you thought Android was behind the curve when it came to mobile gaming, GameString has thrown us a curveball. World of Warcraft (WoW) is coming to Android smartphone! In a alpha demonstration using GameString Platform’s remote play technology we get to see this bad boy in action, ready?
Here’s the skinny on the World of Warcraft (WoW) for Android demonstration. Essentially the gaming wonder is achieved by streaming your games from the cloud to any desktop, notebook, tablet or mobile device. Using the dual-mode delivery technology, each device can have its own custom user interfaces while playing the same core game from the host computer.
The end result is World of Warcraft (WoW) on your Android smartphone or any of the aforementioned devices. Before we get you into the trenches so you can take a peak at this magical solution in action let’s breakdown what it takes to make this demonstration a reality.
First is the GameString Adrenaline Host Server with Dual-Mode Delivery running a standard World of Warcraft game install. The device used in this demonstration is the HTC Desire — although any high-end Android smartphone should have the chops. The host computer (computer at home) has a 2 Mbps upload and the Desire is running off a 2 Mbps download connection. In this controlled environment the host computer and the HTC Desire were separated by about 80km.
The end result is World of Warcraft in the palm of your hands. We’re thoroughly impressed with the end result and if GameString can take this solution mainstream there’s an even brighter future for mobile gaming. So how many of you World of Warcraft players out there are ready to put in some world on your Android smartphone? You can count me in!
