Through native Mantle support in our Asura Engine, AMD Radeon™ customers will uniquely receive a level of performance that couldn’t be achieved without AMD’s visionary efforts with lower level graphics APIs.”

Square Enix is the publisher behind “Murdered: Soul Suspect™,” a supernatural thriller that hallenges players to solve the most difficult case of all: their own murder.

“AMD and Square Enix have enjoyed a history of collaboration with past titles,” aid Naoto Sugiyama, executive producer, “Murdered: Soul Suspect”. “That elationship remains strong as we work together on a rich assortment of ptimised DirectX® 11 effects for Murdered: Soul Suspect. This comprehensive  effort will ensure that all PC gamers receive the definitive experience they
deserve.”

The title will feature support for AMD’s pioneering TressFX Hair and AMD TrueAudio technologies.

“AMD has demonstrated imagination and passion for PC audio with the development of AMD TrueAudio technology,” said Mark Muraski, Lead Sound Designer, Xaviant. “We are taking full advantage of that technology in Lichdom with the development of an uncommonly immersive audio environment. As players wield unfathomable power in the Sixth Age of Roth, AMD Radeon™ gamers with ordinary stereo headsets will experience fully positional 3D audio and acoustic environments modeled after the real world.”

Rebellion Developments, Xaviant and Square Enix will share additional details about these exciting partnerships as their respective games near public release.
