Gameloft's 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' launches on July 24

Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Gameloft latest entrant in the highly anticipated Modern Combat series, Modern Combat 5: Blackout, is scheduled to hit the App Store on July 24.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout features a unified character progression system for the single player and multiplayer versions of the game, along with four soldier classes — assault, heavy, recon, and sniper — each with their dedicated skill-set. The game also features new vehicles, better visuals and new combat environments.

Gameloft has confirmed that the game would require continuous online connectivity, even when in single player mode, because of unified character progression. Multiplayer gameplay will be a huge factor in Modern Combat 5: Blackout, as it has been in earlier games in the series. The game has four multiplayer modes — Capture the Flag, Free for All, Team Battle and VIP, with support for up to 12 players at the same time. Controller support will be available, but is unlikely to make its way in time for the launch.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout will be available for $6.99 without any subsequent in-app purchases. How many of you are looking forward to the game?

Gameloft's 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' launches on July 24


So excited for this next iteration. I've beaten MC4 so many times that it's finally getting old but I still keep playing it. Amazing mobile franchise- truly one of the most console-like games out there

Great franchise! There's no other shooter like it on the App Store. I know I'm getting my money's worth every time I buy the Modern Combat series.
