Leading Indian game developer SuperGaming has revealed the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming Indo-Futuristic battle royale Indus to celebrate India’s Republic Day of January 26, 2023.

To launch the gameplay trailer, the company released a series of high-impact takeovers across the biggest locations in London. This is in line with SuperGaming’s vision of putting India on the global gaming map much like its previous Indus trailer launch at New York’s Times Square to mark India’s Independence Day of August 15, 2022.

“As we’ve been making Indus and seeing its gameplay evolve over the year, we wanted to share it with the rest of the world,” says SuperGaming co-founder and CEO Roby John. “This gameplay trailer is for the Indus community the world over that may not have been able to play it with us and to show off the true scale of battle royale that we want you to have when the game is out.”

The trailer entices players to discover, loot, and win on Virlok — the game’s island map, all while showcasing Indus’ weapons, Paragons (the game’s character skins), and traversal. It also highlights multiple locations and firefights with an intent of showing the scope and size of the battle royale experience SuperGaming aims to provide.

You can check out the trailer right here:

In the run up to Indus’ release date, SuperGaming will have multiple community playtests through the year.

nanocosmos at ICE London, Feb 7-9, N9-322 - kicking off its 25th anniversary, celebrating 25 years of innovation
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The well-established and awarded provider for B2B interactive live streaming starts this year’s dedicated celebration of the company’s 25 years of innovation at ICE London.

Since nanocosmos joined ICE for the first time in 2018, the unique live video streaming platform nanoStream Cloud has raised the bar for live games and live bets being available anywhere at any given time on any device. Right from the beginning, the global gaming industry responded with fantastic feedback in regard to the ultra-low latency live streaming platform that delivers interactive content anywhere in the world on any device – even on mobile platforms, including iOS. The solution has matured and grown into a full featured end-to-end platform with a global network with hundreds of hosts for 24/7/365 operations. This includes unique live video streaming technology and additional tools for analytics and security. Clients from the iGaming and betting space particularly value the fact that the solution combines 100% stability with global access and allows platform operators to deliver interactive games with maximum quality of service and quality of experience for business applications around the world.

CEO and founder Oliver Lietz says: “In the midst of a rapidly changing industry, we noticed that next to the strong demand for games and betting to be available on any device anywhere in the world at ultra-low latency, it is incredibly important for our clients that they can rely on the stability of our platform. 25 years in the audio/video industry is a lot considering how we started in the video broadcast industry with software innovations from the ground off. I am proud that we can dedicate this year to celebrate sustainable innovation and partnerships, which have been our core values from the beginning.”

At booth N9-322, the nanocosmos team will showcase their product – nanoStream Cloud – with new features that highlight ease of use and refine the focus on Quality of Service and Quality of Experience.

 

New technical features to boost iGaming, betting and live casino include expanded global footprint, security, ease of use and the SRT launch

The smart spectrum of nanoStream Cloud delivers games in real-time, provides adaptive, data driven streaming for improved Quality of Service and Quality of Experience and relies on a strong Content Delivery Network, which has been significantly expanded over the last 12 months and which now further improves scalability to South America.

A series of new features make it easier and faster for stream administrators to manage and secure their streams: nanocosmos will launch nanoStream Guardian at ICE, which extends nanoStream Cloud’s security features to protect streams from misuse. Based on IP and referrer blocking, users can create blocklists for their organization and easily control which pages and users are allowed to play their streamed games.

In addition, new API routes are now available within Analytics: This allows customers to better observe their streams and to optimize the performance of their delivered content. Clients can now detect issues early during the ingestion of content, e.g., by receiving information about data not coming through or dropping bitrates. By contributing to a “healthy streaming workflow” right from the beginning, clients can optimize the quality of experience for their customers based on adaptive bitrate streaming on any device and network. Another highlight is the official launch of the SRT and Whip streaming protocols for improving live stream quality in bad network situations and from distant locations.

At ICE booth N9-322, the nanocosmos team plans to run special events and activities to celebrate 25 years of innovation.
