NOVA 3 - Gameloft

NOVA 3 has been announced. It is built using Gameloft's in-house engine - not the Unreal engine. But as everyone says - who cares what it uses if it looks that good?

File Size 1.9GB




Official Trailer:

Slightly longer trailer!

Multiplayer Trailer


The 10 levels of the single player campaign should last around 5 hours on hard or difficult mode

Gameloft have not chosen to go the freemium route with N.O.V.A. 3. And while there is some evidence of in-app purchasing available, it’s not required to finish the game. Instead, it is for those who get stuck and wish to add additional armour, grenades, claymors (though you can pick some of these items up as you progress) to give you a boost

Multiplayer: there are six game modes in all, across six maps. More importantly, they’ve upped the player count to 12.

However, the gameplay is still very much in the same vein as Quake 3 arena or Unreal Tournament, with random weapon spawn points giving it a faster and more hectic experience.

New to multiplayer are vehicles. There have been vehicles present in the single player campaign, but never in the multiplayer too. Here you’ll be able to jump into an armoured buggy – in either the driving position, or jump on the back to man the gun. But, by far the coolest vehicle we saw, was the Mech – a big two-legged machine that looked a cross between a Scout-Walkers from Jedi, and the mechs in Avatar. Unfortunately we couldn’t grab any footage, or images of that in action… but we can’t wait to get our hands on one. And finally, jet packs are also available. I can’t wait to snipe some of you guys out of the sky!

Hoping for the best. I want another MC3, not something like DH3.

Couldn't agree more! They claim it's a 'Blockbuster' so I'm pretty hopeful it's the former.

N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Trailer (Long Version):









Everyone who believes that N.O.V.A 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance will be a Freemium Title should do us all a favor and take a Gun and pull the Trigger.
