The first person shooter promises to deliver plenty of advanced combat weaponry, a wide a range of "visually-stunning settings" and "thrilling action-packed combat sequences," according to Gameloft. The game will also feature both compact and dynamic single-player missions, a unified progression system and multiplayer mode.
The "unified progression system" allows players to carryover any experience earned in both single-player and multiplayer action. For example, experienced gained by making a kill during a multiplayer match will be usable in a single-player mission. This will allow players the ability to easily increase their weapon score and master various weapons, as explained by Gameloft earlier this year.
