It’s starting to look like those of you who guessed that N.O.V.A. Elite was going to be a 100% multiplayer game when it was first announced just might be right, judging by the recently released gameplay trailer. Of course Gameloft could just be focusing on the multiplayer aspect of the game and it could come with a full single player campaign as well, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Anyway, give the trailer a look:
What will be very interesting to see is how Gameloft prices this game if it is 100% multiplayer based. They’ve shown interest in dabbling in free to play games for a while now, and a game like this needs a vibrant online player base to be fun. There’s no better way to get a massive pool of player than releasing a game for free. Sure, this is 110% speculation on my part, but you’ve got to admit it at least makes a little sense given how well ngmoco has done with Eliminate [Free] that Gameloft might try to do the same.
Either way, N.O.V.A. Elite is apparently “coming soon" which in Gameloft-speak could mean as early as next Thursday.
