Gameloft recently dropped some more details on their upcoming game Modern Combat 5 which, Gameloft assures, is well on its way to be launched. This time around, Gameloft has released the full title and the story in which the game will take place. The new game is titled Modern Combat 5: Blackout.
According to Gameloft, “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 moment. The development team wanted players to experience the story in a more intense and diverse way than ever before.”
Seems just like any other modern shooter, though the interesting part is “the latest and most technologically advanced combat weaponry.” Also, the development teams’ dream of “an intense and diverse way” is still to be seen. In a genre that is already overcrowded with regular iterations, this is one of the most closely watched sections. The developers seem to be confident and I can’t wait to see what new pieces they will bring to the board.
As for the story, the story is said to begin in Venice, Italy, where the protagonist Phoenix is tasked with a special operation to secure a transport of WMDs from a group of well-armed terrorists. 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. The developers hope that by the end of it all, players will be left with a satisfying treat of thrilling action-packed combat sequences and visually stunning settings.
Gameloft has yet to make an announcement on both the pricing and the release date but from the recent release it seems it is almost time for those as well. Whatever it is, stay tuned as we will keep you updated!
