N.O.V.A. 3 blasting into the UK and US App Stores at midnight this evening
Kal Warden is back, and once again mankind needs saving from the Volterites. This is starting to become another 'plumber and princess' situation, am I right?

N.O.V.A. 3, due to be released on the UK and US App Stores at midnight tonight, plonks Kal back on Earth, as he answers the call from Yelena and comes out of hiding. We should think so, really, after the mess he left behind in N.O.V.A. 2.

If you enjoyed the previous N.O.V.A.s as much as we did, you'll no doubt be prepped and ready to take this one on, too. There are ten levels to blast your way through, starting on a war-ridden Earth and leading you directly to the source of the problem - the Volterite capital.

You've got guns, special powers, aliens, vehicles, mechs... everything you need for a beefy experience, essentially. N.O.V.A. 3 also features 12-player multiplayer, with six modes in total, and the ability to jump into a vehicle with a friend and take part in some good old-fashioned drive-bys.

It definitely looks the part, but will it be a joy to play? You can check out our N.O.V.A. 3 review later this week. For now, why not read our hands-on preview?
