Everything You Need to Know About Midnight Star - A New FPS from the Creator of Halo

There are many reasons to be excited about the sweeping new sci-fi universe brought to life in mobile game Midnight Star, but they all stem from one central concept. What if the founder of Bungie decided to do for the FPS genre on mobile, what he did for the FPS genre on consoles with a little title called Halo? We talk of Alex Seropian and his new team at Indutsrial Toys. Together they have built a deep, cross-medium IP in Midnight Star that brings smart touch controls to the genre while retaining the crisp AI, fast reflexes and immersive visuals for which the FPS is known. After releasing sporadically around the world in "soft launch" form, the game is gearing up towards it worldwide release.

If you'd like to learn more about the making of Midnight Star, then you need to grab Episode 7 of our digital iPad magazine Grab It. Alongside a stack of other great content, we ran a massive, exclusive making of feature on the game, speaking to Seropian and design lead Paul Bertone (another Bungie veteran of some 12-years) about the origins, challenges, design decisions and future of the series, as well as living up to their Halo legacy.

You can grab it here.

If you happen to live in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Ireland or the Philippines, you can also start playing the current version - grab it here. And in preparation for the imminent worldwide release of the game, Industrial Toys are running an event, with prizes being awarded to the top three players.
