Apple went kit crazy this week at WWDC 2015. The company previewed several new SDKs for app developers, and announced upgrades for Metal and other new tools for game developers. One of the tools called ReplayKit, will allow developers to add the ability for users to record, save and share gameplay video in iOS 9.
E3 kicks off next week on June 16 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Mobile gaming won't have a huge presence at the event, but a few big names like Gameloft will be demoing mobile titles. You can check out the full E3 schedule at e3expo.com.
Gameloft released two big updates for Spider-Man Unlimited and Modern Combat 5: Blackout. The Mysterio’s Mayhem update adds 25 new missions to the Sinister Six saga, 7 new alternate dimension Spideys and more. MC5 has been updated with new weapons, weapon trinkets and masks. Both games are available for free on the Apple App Store.
