Already excited for the release of N.O.V.A. 3? Well, try this new trailer on for size. It focuses on the multiplayer component of the game, and looks downright impressive. I can't wait to see this running on my iPad:

The release date is still a vague "May 2012," and it hasn't been spotted yet in tonight's roundup of games on the verge of releasing… So, fingers crossed for next week?

    Looks sweet! Here's hoping that I can just PAY FOR THE GAME and not be stuck frustrated with a freemium model that Gameloft is pushing in too many of their games right now.

    EDIT - and it's hard to be hopeful about it - as Dungeon Hunter 1 and 2 were both premium and 3 turned into the freemium junk... although they did go an entirely different direction with #3. (A pretty terrible direction in my opinion... but hey - some like it.)

    • Adams Immersive

      Agreed—fingers crossed! Looks great, but consumable IAP or other freemium mistakes would keep me away.

      (Is this Unreal Engine 3?)

        1. It's not going to be a freemium game, gameloft already said (wrote) that.

        2. No, this is gamelofts engine.

      • SoyGreen

        Hope you are right! :)

        Otherwise it'll be a pass by me! I'd rather pay $6.99 for the game up-front than get it free and feel nickeled and dimed like crazy.

        No, no, no. You're not being "nickeled and dimed". Gameloft is simply monetizing their user-base by providing a premium environment where people can buy extra add-ons to further enhance the game experience. Sheesh! How silly can you be? "Nickeled and dimed"! Ha!  :-D

        I'm terribly sorry! I stand corrected!

  • knoids

    Oh gosh, this looks awesome!

    Another great multiplayer game by gameloft that will be plagued with, and ruined by hackers within hours of it's release. MC3 had hackers running around in less than ONE DAY!

    impressed by the graphics! nice work!

  • MadMilkMan

    Looks as though the have made the game scale bigger... Which is good, but with lack of hardware controls, I see this being extremely difficult to play..

      Mc3 had more buttons and it was really easy after getting used to controls.

    God this looks awesome! I might as well say gtfo MC3 and your hackers, altho I have a feeling this'll have hackers and even worse lag on my ipod... But if this runs smooth, damn it'll be my favorite game!

    This trailer reminds me of those epic 4x4 chases On Blood Gulch (You know, Halo CE)

  • Guezcoast

    They say gameloft is cloning games but hey they have more console quality games at cheap price than any other developers. This new nova is gonna be in top of app list for a while. Great job gameloft! Keep pumping out hit titles. This nova 3 is gonna be a game ama showoff in my new ipad3!

  • http://twitter.com/SquishedMitten Tyler Piderit

    Wow this looks great! Gonna be funny to try and play on the iPhone :)

  • darwiniandude

    I'll buy this on launch day at whatever price, unless it's free/freemium, then I'm not interested.

    Please!! BOTS!!!

    Jesus, that looks amazing. I don't care what anyone says, Gameloft is awesome for bringing experiences to iOS that the original developers of the IP's they emulate never will. This looks way to good for less than $9.99.

    I'm glad that they're releasing this game in the spring instead of releasing their top 3 iOS games within just 2 months.

  • Basxe
