The long wait for the next installment of the Modern Combat franchise from Gameloft is almost over. For months and months they have been teasing us with details and information about the game ranging from the new character classes that will be available to choose from to the unified progression system spanning across the single player campaign and the multiplayer modes. All of that information is great and as someone who has loved and supported the Modern Combat series since the first title, feeding on all of it has happily made me want more and I’m not afraid to admit that I’d nearly sell my soul just to play it ahead of everyone else. OK, maybe I wouldn’t go quite that far but I do want to get my hands on it as soon as possible.
Thanks to some hands on time from various sources and the gameplay footage shown off by Gameloft themselves from this year’s E3 conference just last month, we now have a good idea of what to expect visually with the game while it’s being played. All of that could only matter so much though as the most important details had yet to be announced. Those details that everyone has been waiting on are the release date(for Android of course)and the pricing details. So far we still don’t know whether this game will cost $6.99 like Modern Combat 4 or if Gameloft has decided to give this game a free to play pricing model, but now we do finally know when we can pick up and play this game for the very first time.
Starting this month on July 24th, Android gamers worldwide will get their chance to experience what Gameloft is promising will be the an “incredible FPS experience” on mobile. Sometimes with game releases(especially big ones like this)we can expect to find them live on the Play Store after midnight if not right on the dot. That won’t necessarily be the case here but if you’ve been waiting on this game as long as the hardcore fans(which I suppose makes you a hardcore fan)then you’ll probably be like me and check the Play Store for the launch at around 12:01 am and spam till it shows up. Just a couple of more weeks to go until Modern Combat 5: Blackout is here.
