This fellow here will have support.

A few more games will be supporting ’s Mantle application programming interface (API) in future, according to the company. In a new community blog post AMD go over the recent developments in the world of Mantle, and note that EA has announced , and the PC port will all support it.

Mantle provides an alternative to DirectX for users with recent (R7, R9, 7xxx series) AMD graphics cards, and has been shown to increase frame-rates and performance in some instances.

Battlefield 4 and Eidos’ Thief were the last couple of titles to include Mantle support, with games like Civilization: Beyond Earth and Star Citizen pledging to do so in future. Back in March, Crytek agreed to add Mantle support to their CryEngine technology; though it will presumably still be up to developers using said CryEngine whether they want to make use of the Mantle option.

The API will only thrive if a significant number of games adopt support for it. To that end, AMD launched a Mantle SDK beta back in May.

EA and AMD’s latest announcement (spotted by HardOCP) at least adds three more titles to the list.
