“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” arrives in theaters on July 31, and there’s no better way to get ready for J. J. Abrams’ latest film than to play out the action on your iPhone or iPad. Glu Games made that possible, releasing Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation on the App Store.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it
Within the game, you play as a member of the IMF, the Impossible Mission Force, traveling around the world to collect intelligence and eliminate enemy threats. Free to play levels challenge you with a mixture of first and third person action scenes that typically require you to shoot your way out of trouble.
Building your own agency
As you complete missions and earn rewards, you can join with other players to form your own agency. The game allows you to share tips and tricks through a chat function, and you are encouraged to build and defend your very own IMF headquarters from enemies, including other agencies.
Free to play, but expensive to play well
While Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is free to play, there are plenty of in-app purchases within the game. Some of the tougher missions are best played with gear you acquire with real money, which can make this game rather expensive to enjoy. For example, a small gold package needed to acquire equipment will set you back $4.99 through an in-app purchase.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 6.0 or later. The game is a free download on the App Store, with advertisements and in-app purchases. See the video trailer below, or click this link if it doesn’t load.
