The mobile market is booming these days with games for players to take with them on the go. Fire Emblem, the new Dynasty Warriors Game, Pokemon GO – the mobile market is undoubtedly on the fast-track right now and Ubisoft just revealed their plans to add their own fire to the mix. If you’re a fan of Tom Clancy, then we’ve got some good news. There is a new Clancy title coming to mobile devices and it is described as a “real-time multiplayer sniper shooter” that will also provide tactical objectives to the player. Check out the reveal trailer for ShadowBreak in the video below:
The player steps behind the scope of an elite sniper within ShadowBreak and learns what it means to be a leader. By taking control of an assigned squad, skill behind the trigger isn’t the only thing needed. Tactical decisions are imperative to the squad’s success, strategy over a simple run-and-gun game. In a world where Shadow Nations are the big threat to society, it is the job of the initiative – ShadowBreak – to take down these factions and bring stability back to the people.
Each match will be three minutes long and require skill and strategy for how to go about the mission. Allocation of squadmates and where to hunker down behind the scope is key to the mission’s success. An an elite sniper, it is your job to protect your people and take out the bad guys with efficient accuracy. Luckily, ShadowBreak provides a wide array of guns to choose from to better suit player style. Balance is key, strategy is everything. “Our hope is that the balance between these two aspects is very tight,” says creative director AJ Morales.
If you’re a great marksman with an inferior troop loadout, you’re still going to have a strong avenue to victory. If you’re not as strong in your shooter prowess but have superior troops and strategy, you’ve still got a great shot at the win.”
