Havok may be the same engine as in PC and console games, but I imagine they're running much simpler calculations on mobile especially to work on single core A4 devices. Reduced precision and calculation interval may be making the ragdoll animation jerky.

  • It was about Bioshock's awkward ragdoll physics, not mobile games.
  • I work with Havok for basic 3D mapping, to test collision detection. I know how it works.

Anyways, looks like it's not happening. Stupid false tease.

I have not seen or heard anything about NOVA 4. Nothing on the leaked gameloft lineup. Nor anything on gameloft live. Modern Combat 5 is already up on Gameloft live, leading me to believe that they ended the NOVA series.


Crap! I was so happy for nova 4! Oh well,we had to learn at some point. Thanks for the info Elisha

Default I believe so!

N.O.V.A 3 was just recently on sale for free along with Gangstar Rio. The new Gangstar Vegas was just released. Next will be Nova 4. Gameloft is known for making games free when the next of the series is about to come out. But this is just my opinion. I know Gameloft has already mentioned Modern Combat 5 and nothing about Nova but that doesnt mean its the end yet.

I'd say it's more like they've got a line of merchandise, and to advertise it, they took a photo!?

I think they would have released a trailer or some sort of announcement by now so they could show MC5 and NOVA 4 at E3, can you imagine how amazing that would be?
