“The MaskGun anniversary update is our biggest one yet."
SuperGaming, one of India’s top gaming developers announced that its mobile multiplayer shooter MaskGun has crossed 60 million players.
The achievement comes as the game marks its third anniversary.
MaskGun is a real-time online multiplayer first-person shooter for mobile.
The modes include deathmatch, team deathmatch, bomb defusal and now, 1v1.
At the forefront is player customisation along with a whole host of unique armour, patterns, decals, masks and guns to choose from.
SuperGaming announced that the game has crossed 60 million users.
To celebrate this and its anniversary, MaskGun has a new update titled the ‘3rd Anniversary Update’.
It brings a revamped user interface, fresh skins and 1v1 mode.
SuperGaming CEO and co-founder Roby John said:
“The MaskGun anniversary update is our biggest one yet.
“1v1, in particular, has been the most requested feature from the community.
“It aims to be a test of true skill to show off the best talent from MaskGun’s 60 million plus players as there won’t be a team to make up for your lapses or carry you in a match.”
As the name indicates, 1v1 pits one player against another in a no-holds-barred contest to see who is the best.
Players select from three weapon types – assault rifle, shotgun and sniper rifle.
They then square off against a friend (or enemy) and settle the rivalry once and for all.
Beat rivals consistently and players can find themselves on MaskGun’s leaderboard and win unique in-game rewards.
Players can access the mode from the Rumble section of the game’s menu.
Other additions include new female agents and dragon borne weapon skins.
