If you are one of the many gamers who has been waiting for Shadowgun Legends, the latest entry in the Shadowgun series, you might be in luck. Beta testing for the game is scheduled to begin in mid-October. Developer MADFINGER Games has already begun sending out surveys to users who signed up for the beta, and will invite a limited number of iOS and Android users to test the game in the near future. Gamers who have not signed up for the beta can still do so on the official Shadowgun Legends website.
Shadowgun Legends is scheduled for release before the end of 2017, and promises a whole slew of features. That includes character customization that allows players to create their own classes by choosing from over 50 different active and passive skills, controller support, a persistent world, and much much more. It also promises a lot of content, with over 500 different weapons and pieces of armor. Shadowgun Legends will be free to play, so the game’s monetization strategy might be a big part of how well it will be received.
MADFINGER Games is a game development studio based in the Czech Republic. It is famous for creating the Dead Trigger and Shadowgun series. The two series are among the most popular first person shooters on Android & iOS, with a number of games being downloaded over 10 million times on Android alone.
