Glu Mobile’s Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation Goes to War on Mobile

The game sees players completing missions on a quest to destroy the Syndicate.

Game developer and publisher Glu Mobile has announced the release of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, the official mobile game based on the upcoming film of the same name, set to hit theaters on July 31. The game sees players joining the Impossible Mission Force (IMF), and infiltrating secure locations on a quest to confront the Syndicate.

In Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, players will complete missions across Morocco, London and Vienna, with each mission having a different goal, like eliminating targets or destroying enemy hideouts, as examples.

During each mission, players drag their finger around the screen to change their view, and tap on buttons on the right side of the screen to pop in and out of cover and shoot at enemies. Players can also move between cover positions for a better view of their surroundings, or to advance into enemy bases.

Missions have weapon requirements, which may see players purchasing new weapons or upgrading their existing options. These upgrades may see players increasing the damage of their guns, their fire rate or other stats, depending on the weapon. In some missions, players will have access to secondary tools, including throwing knives for stealth kills, or rockets.

In addition to story-based missions, players can complete separate missions requiring premium heavy guns or gauss rifles, as well as stealth missions or repeatable missions.

Outside of these single-player missions, players can build their own IMF headquarters which generates data crystals, a special currency, over time. Gamers can also access player-vs-player gameplay to raid other players’ bases to earn bonus data crystals. These crystals are required for some weapon upgrades, and can also be used to upgrade the player’s overall health, or increase their base’s defenses.

For additional social features, players can join an Agency, or guild, to participate in special Agency player-vs-player events, and can also chat with other players in real time.

In a statement, Niccolo de Masi, CEO and chairman of Glu, commented:

We are excited to deliver the first ever free-to-play Mission: Impossible mobile game as part of Glu’s ongoing partnerships with Paramount Pictures and Skydance. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’s intense action gameplay introduces players to exotic locations from the upcoming film while incorporating engaging social components such as PvP, co-op agencies, and in-game chat.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.
