Gameloft has released its newest game, Sniper Fury, on mobile devices. The first-person shooter takes players to the near future as they join an organization named Cellstrike, and are challenged to eliminate enemy threats around the world.
Sniper Fury offers multiple mission types, including story missions and standalone sniping and assault missions, as examples. While playing, users drag their finger around the screen to aim their weapon and can zoom in on enemies before firing. Players will have access to sniper rifles, assault rifles, railguns and other weapons as they progress, and can upgrade these weapons in between stages.
Players can unlock upgrades for their weapons using either free currency (cash) or crafting materials. These crafting materials are earned after some missions, and can also be collected by purchasing premium battle crates in the game’s store.
In addition to single-player missions, Sniper Fury includes a multiplayer mode, which sees players customize their own base to protect it from other players. Gamers can assign up to five ‘squadmates’ to their base, who will gather gold automatically over time, and will also defend the base from attacks. This gold is a separate currency from cash, and can be used to upgrade the overall base, or these squadmates.
Sniper Fury offers more than 130 missions at launch, and includes timed events which give players a chance to earn bonus rewards. Players need energy to complete both single-player and multiplayer missions. This energy recharges automatically over time, or can be purchased with premium currency. Users can also buy additional gold and cash, as well as premium weapons.
