N.O.V.A Legacy has launched in the Google Play Store, five years after the release of its popular predecessor, N.O.V.A 3. The new free-to-play first-person-shooter, developed by Gameloft, delivers single and multiplayer sci-fi combat in a small, “20 MB” download.
Gameloft, who also develops the Modern Combat and Asphalt games, says that Legacy is a reimagined version of the first N.O.V.A title, which first launched for Apple devices in 2009. Of course, mobile technology has changed a lot in the past 8 years, so the audio and visual elements have been completely overhauled. According to Gameloft, the missions are also now shorter to make them easier to play in short bursts.
Further, Gameloft has added an RPG-like crafting and upgrade system for your weapons, and has improved the multiplayer component, which accommodates 6-player deathmatches.
You can download N.O.V.A Legacy from the Google Play Store from today. Gameloft boasts that it has a 20 MB file size, but it’s actually 24.69 MB. I’m not saying 24.69 MB is a large file, it’s still mighty impressive, but Gameloft is making a big deal about it and a 23 percent difference isn’t a small margin. Why not just say 25 MB?
