Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance 3 (also called N.O.V.A. 3) is Gameloft's third installment of the N.O.V.A. series for iOS, BlackBerry 10 and Android devices, with planned releases for the BlackBerry PlayBook and Windows Phone 8 devices. The game was released on the App Store on May 10, 2012. N.O.V.A. 3 falls into the sci-fi action-adventure FPS genre. Gameloft also launched a free to play edition of N.O.V.A 3 which is known as N.O.V.A 3 :Freedom Edition. Unlike its predecessors, instead of being faithfully orientated towards Halo, N.O.V.A 3 is more orientated to games such as Killzone and Call of Duty. N.O.V.A 3 features Gameloft's multiplayer service Gameloft Live.
