Philips and Codemasters today announced that amBX patches will be available for Codemasters titles Overlord on November 16th, and Clive Barker's Jericho by the end of the year. Shorthand for ‘ambient experiences’, amBX extends the gaming experience by allowing developers to use light, color, sound, rumble and air flow through enabled devices like LED colour-controlled lighting, rumble peripherals and variable speed desktop fans. Other games which are amBX compatible include Broken Sword: The Angel of Death, Darwinia, DEFCON, Supreme Commander and TOCA Race Driver 3. Philips says it is currently in the closing stages of agreements with a number of other high-profile companies regarding amBX-enabling and game modding. Said Jo Cooke, CMO of Philips amBX, “The patches for Overlord and Clive Barker’s Jericho demonstrate that we can amBX-enable games even after launch, making them fully amBX-enabled and quickly distribute them to gamers through the ambx.com web site and magazine covermounts. These great games continue to build on our relationship with Codemasters, which will see us amBX-enable many more titles from this award-winning British publisher over the coming months.”
