N.O.V.A 3 comes to iOS

Gameloft India has officially announced the availability of N.O.V.A 3 for the iOS App Store. N.O.V.A. 3 is part of the company’s successful Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance (N.O.V.A.) game franchise, which has had 2 previous versions released for both iOS and Android platform.


N.O.V.A 3 is a sci-fi first person shooter with a similar feeling to the Halo series. In this new installment, the graphics have been improved and a couple of interesting upgrades have been added to the playability factor as well. Besides the solo first player mode, there are multiplayer and solo deathmatch modes as well. N.O.V.A. 3 stands for Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance and it is a quick action packed game and with this latest edition, the storyline has Kal Wardin coming back to save the Earth. No matter how cliché that might sound, it’s been evident that fun is in the playability as well, and not just the storyline. Kal Wardin has been laying low, since Folsom’s death, but now he has received a desperate plea from Yelena to come to Earth. Once again, the hero must rise to save mankind.
