Modern Combat 5: Blackout blasts its way onto Google Play

The latest in Gameloft's Modern Combat series is now available in Google Play, and it's actually hitting a day earlier than we expected. Modern Combat 5: Blackout offers a new unified character progression system that ties together the single player and multiplayer games, along with four distinct character classes, new vehicles and improved visuals.

Just as a fair bit of warning, the new unified progression features require an internet connection to play the game, even when in single player mode. While this likely isn't an issue for most who will pick up the game, it's something to think about.

Modern Combat 5 is available now from the Google Play Store for $6.99, and you won't be raked over the coals with in-app purchases either. This is sure to be a hit with the Modern Combat fans out there — are you going to give it a try?

Modern Combat 5: Blackout blasts onto Google Play, no in-app purchases in sight


No IAP's....yet. Watch them release an update that adds that crap later down the line. It's sad but there's money to be made with fools willing to pay $50 for 50K in fake money in 8 Ball Pool, etc.

@cd5lov96: Yes, all games should be free. All the developers should work to create whatever we want without charging us or having any ads!

Make quality games and I will buy them... That's how you create a following and a repeatable revenue stream.

I won't buy it because of lack of IAP. I will buy it because it is a quality product. IAP is here for a while get used to it. Whether you like it or not there are too many people happy to spend real money on virtual items for them to stop.
