Project Nova: An FPS of Cosmic Proportions
It has been quite some time since an FPS title has rocked the gaming world with the impact and sensation of a supernova. Games like Destiny 2 or Overwatch come to mind but, it has been quite some time since they were released. While routine updates have infused these titles with freshness for gamers to enjoy, there haven’t been genuinely “new” releases. That is until now.
FPS fans, get ready to have your world rocked because Project Nova is underway.
What is Project Nova?
Project Nova is a tactical FPS, currently under development by CCP Games, which is aimed squarely at the most hardcore fans of the FPS gaming genre. Being that CCP Games is the company that was responsible for giving us Eve Online, anything less than a title with the effect of a massive supernova would be a disappointment. So that’s what we’ll be expecting from Project Nova.
As of press time, there is no word yet on whether this will be a free-to-play or buy-to-play title. Whichever it turns out to be, it’s sure to be a welcome title in a genre that’s long overdue for a new contender.
What can I expect from the game?
While the game will be deeply rooted in Eve Online’s setting and general lore, it won’t be nearly as dependent on economics and trading the way its “parent game” is. Make no mistake about it; Project Nova will be as hardcore an FPS game as you can possibly get. Furthermore, though you can look at it as an offshoot of Eve Online, Project Nova won’t be sharing the same universe either.
Notable games that can be compared to this upcoming release are Destiny 2 and Warframe. This is in the sense that progression will be a constant and that CCP Games will bombard its fanbase with daily activities to indulge in. Considering how both Destiny 2 and Warframe are currently dominating the FPS RPG scene, making an FPS is actually a rather gutsy move on the part of CCP Games. Whether it is a move that will pay off in the end or not, only time will tell.
When does it drop?
Now that’s the big question, isn’t it? When indeed! As it is currently under development, there is no word as to when. Sure, the wait will leave quite a bitter taste in the mouths of the FPS faithful, but the fact that it promises to be a game of cosmic magnitude should be reason enough to get excited. CCP Games gets a pass in this regard but they better make it worth our wait!
Rockin’ Like a Supernova
Every now and then, a title comes along that has the capacity to change the gaming landscape altogether. This has been true since the days of Counterstrike right up to Fortnite. With CCP Games’ impending release, we may be set to witness a phenomenal spectacle akin to that of a massive supernova. Ready your trigger fingers because Project Nova is coming soon.
