Glu announces new games including Frontline Commando, Infected, Nightworld and Stardom

As a publicly traded company, Glu Mobile has to provide a lot of information every three months to keep its investors happy.

The good news for us, gamers is this means we learn about new games.

Of course, Glu is well known for its hardcore freemium games such as Gun Bros and Contract Killer.

That’s an area it’s looking to – in the parlance of the industry – double-down on with new games.

For example, Glu’s recently launched Contract Killer: Zombies, a zombie version of Contract Killer, which it says is its most successful launch for iOS and Android to-date.

Gimme new stuff

New freemium games for iOS and Android just announced for release before the end of 2011 are…

Frontline Commando: a contemporary, third-person desert-based shooter.

Infected: Infect the World: this is a strategy top-down version of Planet Moon’s original PSP zombie shooter, remade for mobile.

The Nightworld: this is the first game based on Glu’s deal with James Frey’s Full Fathom Five transmedia company. It will be backed with ebook and physical books from Harper Collins. It’s a thirdperson action shooter in an atmospheric, apocalyptic world and Glu’s first game using the Unreal engine.

Blood & Glory: it’s described as head-to-head, highend 3D combat game.
