Modern Combat 5: Blackout teaser trailer brings the noise to Venice

With just a few more days until the big E3 2014 video game trade show begins, the folks at mobile publisher Gameloft have released the first teaser trailer for Modern Combat 5: Blackout, the next installment for one of their most popular franchises.

The trailer itself has all of the first person modern military shooting action players of the Modern Combat series have come to expect from Gameloft. The brief teaser shows what looks like a campaign mission set in the canal-filled city of Venice, Italy. That means players can expect to shoot enemy helicopters while sitting on a speeding boat surrounded by buildings that are centuries old.

There's not really anything else that's revealed in this teaser, other than the game is "coming soon" for Android, iOS and Windows platforms. It's likely that a longer trailer will be released by Gameloft when E3 2014 begins next week in Los Angeles. Gameloft released some brief story details about Modern Combat 5 back in April, where the main character will have to track a terrorist group in a worldwide campaign that also includes a stop in Tokyo.

Are you a fan of the Modern Combat series and does this teaser for the fifth installment get you pumped up for the game's eventual release?

Modern Combat 5: Blackout teaser trailer brings the noise to Venice


It would be interesting to see if they'll use Metal APIs for iOS 8 users.

This game needs a good controller to go with it, I'm hoping better controllers will come out soon. Razor's Junglecat looks good but it's for iPhone only, I rather have it for the iPad.

Also, Apple need to get AppleTV out as a microconsole like Amazon's FireTV.

Love Modern Combat - I agree it would be cool if they use Metal but perhaps too far in production already? Even so, I will definitely buy this.
