Mobile eSports shooter Critical Ops clears 20 million downloads with no paid UA

Critical Force Entertainment's online FPS Critical Ops has now surpassed 20 million downloads 21 months after its initial launch.

Writing on a Facebook post, Critical Force's CEO Veli-Pekka Piirainen claimed that the studio has achieved this milestone without any kind of paid user acquisition.

The game had cleared 15 million downloads in March 2017. This suggests it has achieved another five million downloads in the last three months.

Big shot

Critical Ops is a multiplayer shooter with a strong eSports focus, with numerous tournaments planned around the world over the next year.

It is available in over a hundred countries, including the UK and US, but is still considered in soft launch by the developer.

As well as developing its game, Critical Force is trying to help Finland out of its reported game development talent shortage. It recently opened an academy at Kajaani University to train game dev students in the skills they need to prepare them for future jobs.
