In 2009, Gameloft released N.O.V.A. (Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance), a science-fiction first-person shooter for mobile devices. The developers launched the N.O.V.A franchise which was adopted by two extra games which are N.O.V.A or Close to Orbit Vanguard Alliance which gathered attention from followers and got positive reviews. The game was successful enough for a sequel while it had a little resemblance in terms of its art style to Microsoft’s Halo series for the Xbox.
N.O.V.A. 3, the last game in the series was released back in 2012 and it had drastically improved graphics of the sport than the previous series. Now after five years, Gameloft is posting up the teasers for its new game within the series called N.O.V.A. Legacy on YouTube which will be coming soon to Android and is predicted to be free to play. It did release a teaser video but Gameloft is keeping details of N.O.V.A legacy to itself.
On the official facebook page of the game, it is stated that “N.O.V.A. Legacy brings you the best sci-fi FPS experience from the epic first episode of the critically acclaimed N.O.V.A. saga — all in a compact 20 MB !”. The page also reveals the fact that it will support up to 6 people multiplayer game online, where you can also craft and upgrade your weapons. The single player mode includes 19 levels to fight. And pre-registration will give access to extra custom character skins, consumables and even extra weapon upgrades that cost $8, which also suggests that the game will be free to play the shooter game.
N.O.V.A Legacy is announced to release after five years of the last game. However, the reason is still unknown that why it took so long to come up with the sequel of the series for the developers. Still, the exact release date for the game is not known and the Gameloft merely shared “coming soon”.
