N.O.V.A. 2 Game Confirmed as Xperia Play Timed-Exclusive

By Updated on

A few days ago Gameloft announced that it was working on a game called BackStab, which they said would be exclusively for the much-anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia Play phone. Now we have received word that their popular N.O.V.A. 2 game is making its way to the handset.

However, according to an article by Richard Meads over at pocketgamer.co.uk, the developer also confirmed that the sci-fi action adventure FPS game – which is said to be a clone of the hugely popular Halo video game – will in fact be an Xperia Play timed-exclusive when it is released.

The second installment, which is already available on iOS, in the series will then be released to other Android run devices one month after that. The original N.O.V.A. game was a huge success when it was first released back in December 2009, and even earned itself a Pocket Gamer Silver Award.

As mentioned in our previous article, the N.O.V.A. 2 game features a larger variety of weapons and powers compared to the original. The game also features an improved AI, as well as the added bonus of the multiplayer maps now having space for up to 10 players.
