Nvidia has announced that its Shield Tablet and the LTE model is being upgraded to version 2.2.

The update boasts a handful of new features including an expanded streamed PC games library, all for free with no need of a PC.

Users can now play games such as Lego Harry Potter, PixelJunk Shooter and Grid 2 to name a few. Gamers can also look forward to new titles being added every week on #SHIELDTuesday.

To complement the bulked out choice of games, Nvidia has added support for Shield Hub 4.1, which includes GameStream multi-controller support.

The tablet will also benefit from improvements to its battery life when it is in standby or idle, and better charging performance.

It will be powered by Android 5.0.1 with the usual improvements to app responsiveness and UI.

On top of that, the Shield Power Control Menu has been reintroduced onto the device, which has also been treated to some memory optimisation improvements.

The tablets are available from Amazon, Dabs.com, Novotech and Overclockers UK starting at £239.99 RRP.

In other Nvidia news; the tech company’s Tegra X1 system-on-a-chip was one of the top picks from CES 2015 for tech buyers.
