Gameloft teases more details about Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Gameloft has unveiled more details about its upcoming military shooter, Modern Combat 5: Blackout. The title and certain story details were revealed last month, but now we have some information on two new major features: unified progression and character classes.

Blackout features the same basic structure as previous Modern Combat game, with a single-player campaign and a multiplayer mode. But where past games have kept those two completely separated from one another, Blackout will have the modes interact just a bit. Unified progression will see your experience transfer between solo and mulitplayer modes. So if you reach level five in the campaign, then decide to play in a multiplayer match, you'll find that your character is at level five in multiplayer. This unification includes weapons mastery.

The four soldier classes of Modern Combat 5 have been announced. The Assault class is a medium range fighter that uses assault rifles and pistols. The Heavy, a resilient close-to-medium range class, equips shotguns and RPGs. The Recon class focuses on quick strikes at close range using submachine guns and pistols. Finally, the Sniper class specializes in long-range sharpshooting with sniper rifles, though they can use pistols if they need to.

Gameloft says that they will be rolling out more information about Modern Combat 5: Blackout in the coming weeks.

Gameloft teases more details about Modern Combat 5: Blackout


This game is Impossible to play without a controller. It's pretty much worthless trying to use the on screen pad

Funny how I've beaten the last 2 episodes using on screen controls. Takes a lil getting used to and effort, but not that bad when you get the hang of it. I've been a PC gamer most of my life and picking up a console controller, when my brother bought me an Xbox 360, I felt like all thumbs at first. But now it's nothing.

When I was an active player, I'd be consistently at the top of the scoreboards. Depending on what type of screen protector you use, playing with touch controls isn't too bad.

after a little bit it's not that bad... However, I bought a moga pro and now it's much better ;)

You and me both! I plan on saving up and working a couple extra consulting jobs to get a silencer and grip!

Zzzzzz. After playing in depth shooter games on XBOX... I can never get used to playing them on a mobile device. I end up deleting these storage hogging apps.
