Gameloft is getting increasingly blatant with their clones as of late. Starfront – Collision [$6.99] was so StarCraft-y that I’ve had friends who were shoulder surfing me flat out ask how I got StarCraft on my phone. They’re not stopping there though, the latest teaser trailer released by Gameloft revealed today that their sights are set on… World of Warcraft, believe it or not.
Feast your eyes on this:
Details are scarce currently, and it remains to be seen how this game will be sold. Apple has recently added the ability for in-app subscriptions, so Gameloft could be following the typical MMO subscription route. Much more likely though is that this game will have some kind of freemium mechanic to it, which is where I’d place my bets. We’ll have to wait and see!
For details as they’re released, keep an eye on Gameloft’s Facebook page.
