In a rising industry like Mobile eSports you can’t blame all developers for not taking this route in an unfamiliar territory. However, in the words of the poet Robert Frost, taking the road less travelled by can make all the difference in the world, especially in the mobile gaming industry. Players want a unique experience, a competitive approach that allows them to utilize their skills and strategy.
And while Mobile eSports, for all intents and purposes, is the road less travelled by when exploring the goals of modern-day developers; we believe Madfinger Games will choose an eSports route for their upcoming, gorgeous shooter, Shadowgun: Legends. Shadowgun has been one of the earliest and most competitive shooter games in the history of mobile games. Their first competitive shooter was Shadowgun: Deadzone which was initially released rocking revolutionary visuals during the prime years of mobile gaming, back in 2012. Without exaggeration, this 5 year old game can even compete against the top mobile gaming shooters of today.
With such history and innovation, Madfinger Games will see the potential in Mobile eSports and create a competitive atmosphere for Shadowgun Legends. We do believe that there will be tournaments for this game after it has been mastered and polished. While this title is unconventional in its gameplay mechanics and universe, it brings a unique perspective to the competitive community. The game also boasts console quality graphics which you will fall in love with and easily attracts newcomers to the Shadowgun universe.
Shadowgun Legends is currently soft launched in the Netherlands and should be launching globally very soon. It has been announced on the official website that the sci-fi shooter will be released in the 4th quarter of this year. Whether the developers will be able to deliver it this year is yet to be seen. We are excited to see what Madfingers has in store for us in terms of eSports for Shadowgun Legends.
