Gameloft spills new details about long-awaited Modern Combat 5
Details about Gameloft’s delayed FPS Modern Combat 5 have been in short supply, but we finally have a full name at least: Modern Combat: Blackout.
The news, which arrived through gaming site TouchArcade, was accompanied by a reconfirmation of previously published news. The game begins in Venice, Italy — where main character Phoenix must stop a group of well-armed terrorists from transporting weapons of mass destruction.
From here, the game recalls previous Modern Combat titles by whisking you around the globe in various missions filled with spectacular set pieces (including helicopter and speedboat-based moments) alongside the expected twists and intrigue.
Modern Combat: Blackout is confirmed for tablets and smartphones on both Android and iOS platforms, although pricing info or an exact release date have yet to be announced. The game was previously postponed from 2013 to 2014 to let developers “fully achieve” their vision for the title.
As always, we’ll keep you updated with news as we get it.
