Gameloft announces title and story details for Modern Combat 5

By Bla1ze on 29 Apr 2014 03:16 pm EDT

Although Gameloft dropped some details on Modern Combat 5: Blackout back in June for Android and iOS, we've still not seen release of the game as of yet. Don't fret though, Gameloft is still working on things and have once again let it be known the game is well on its way to release and have now dropped the full title and story details behind the game.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout will once again take fans on an adventure across the globe, as the player engages in special counter-terrorism operations with the latest and most technologically advanced combat weaponry. The single-player campaign for MC5: Blackout consists of compact and dynamic missions that ratchet up the suspense of each action-packed moments. The development team wanted players to experience the story in a more intense and diverse way than ever before.

The story will indeed begin in Venice, Italy where Phoenix, the main character of the game, is sent on a special operation to secure a transport of WMDs from a particularly well-armed terrorist group. From there the plot will take gamers on a globe-trotting adventure, including a particularly harrowing sequence in Tokyo where Phoenix has to fight amidst total anarchy while trying to convince his allies to accept an uncomfortable secret. By the end, players will have experienced a range of visually-stunning settings, and thrilling action-packed combat sequences.

Sounds promising and from the previous videos, it looks pretty good. Needless to say though, we're at the mercy of Gameloft for a release date, pricing details and whether or not it will launch on BlackBerry 10 like Modern Combat 4 did.

Gameloft announces title and story details for Modern Combat 5


yup and no stupid so called witty wannabe first postings made by me either!! Because saying first to be cool on the internet isn't cool at all....

ya the uneducated, "cool" kids that need their parents approval so they try so hard to be "first" at something.... Instead, maybe they should focus on being first in school, getting the best grades they can get, so they can get paid like what their more educated friends get paid.

Why don't you take your own advice?? Mind your own business, this is my crusade against the losers that think saying first is cool!

Maybe you want to shed some light as to why you and others think it's cool to say first??

Wah wah wah that's all I'm seeing. Lmfao calling me a little bitch?? How original.

Why you getting so butt hurt about me asking for you to explain why you think it's cool to be a Internet loser posting first?? You afraid you will disappoint your friends and family and be a disgrace if you don't stick up for the firsties?

And I love how you always call me out for liking the Maple Leafs. I'm guessing you either are A) not a hockey fan or B) just trying to piss me off which doesn't hurt me at all, because I'm a true fan, and I've heard all the Leaf insults there is.

So why not piss off and go play with your firstie friends and find out who comes first ;)

But seriously, anyone plays fps on mobiles???

I tried it through hdmi but it was hard to play cuz the controls were on my phone not the tv (like where the buttons were) but I have to say the graphics were really good hooked on the tv, with a bluetooth gamepad perhaps it be easier

I know support for the playbook has officially ended but I hope they release it for PB. The experience is so much better on a bigger screen. Can't imagine playing that on my Q10.

Really enjoyed both Modern Combat games on the PlayBook (especially the online multi-player). My PlayBook has lost sound (always thinks it has headphones in and even that doesn't work lol) and my Q10 might not be the best choice for it.
I wonder if a gaming controller and hdmi cable would work well on the Q10 and this game. If it does, hope the output from Q10 to HDMI is wide-screen like the native video player.

it would be interesting if they incorporated keyboard support for the Q10 and Q5. Haha. W-A-S-D, space to jump and enter to shoot. Pew Pew!

I can just join in with those asking for a PlayBook version.

I tried playing games on the Z10 - but short if saddling with something simple it is just a too small screen.
The PlayBook is better suited as a gaming device - plus it has more internal space too.

The Z10 practically has the screen resolution / pixel count of a budget laptop (approx 1280x800 or 1366x768), but size does matter.

No Miracast, needs a Z30.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Let's hope it will appear on BB10. Sounds like a great game.

It won't be released onto BlackBerry 10 for at least 6 months after the initial iOS / Android Launch, going by gameloft's past stance on the roll out of new software for BlackBerry.

Could give a damn about the story and setting. The main thing I'm interested in finding out about is whether this iteration will have any wireless game pad support and compatibility . Now that, would be f***g sweet!

.2141 what's the difference? .1925 still the bangingest til I know any different.

Great news! I'm owned all titles on PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 device!

If the laggy support is the same then before! I didn't want it! Otherwise they will fix to download the Gameloft games on Play Store! All other platforms get the support and updates of the game!


Finally they ignore any questions from a BlackBerry User!

It's a shame that company are in the neighborhood of BlackBerry and they not harmony each other!

I'm sure that I bought this game for BlackBerry but annoys me now if it takes forever again is resolved to a bug

I just can't get into a fps on a phone. Even on the PlayBook my thumbs kept moving off the virtual thumbsticks and the other control schemes just didn't do it for me.
