Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour trailer shows off unbelievable mobile graphics

By , Oct 15, 2012

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is coming this fall on iOS and Android and Gameloft today posted this second trailer to highlight the visual aspects of this awesome-looking first-person shooter. This follows a gameplay trailer released on September 25. The high-definition graphics promises to really shine on the iPhone 5, giving us some indication what its speedy in-house designed A6 chip with three GPU cores is capable of, at least until Infinity Blade Dungeons lands. I’ve also included a few totally eye-candy screenies right past the fold…

The iOS version of the game has been confirmed to support the iPhone 5. The game’s graphics is driven by the Havok engine, which has been improved on mobile and now features real-time shadows.

It’s a big budget production so the team captured character animations from live actors and created a new system for believable vehicle animations.

Of course, large scale firefight, lots of orange explosions and big open spaces are all part of Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, arguably one of the most anticipated game releases on both iOS and Android this year.

You won’t be only playing a U.S. soldier: Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour also puts you in the shoes of the villain Edward Page, which is kinda nice.

Check out the screenies, via Gameloft.

Wow, looks like the gap between smartphones, consoles and dedicated gaming consoles is closing every day. For more, hop over to the official web site.

And here’s the first trailer from last month.

The game is arriving to iOS and Android platforms later this month.

If you’re a sucker for first-person shooters as I am, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour should be well worth the wait.

    I wonder how much money, if any, these developers make on apps like this, especially with the amount of work they seem to be doing.

  • David Henderson

    Why are iOS releases always a general time frame rather than a specific release date?

    • philadelphia

      Can’t say for sure, but it could have something to do with testing, and probably a lot to do with the notorious app approval process.

    This looks awesome! Would be even better if I could connect my Xbox controller to my iPad :)

      apple refuses to understand how important this is..

    I remember when Gameloft did this with Nova 3. Looked beautiful, then it came out and lagged so much. Hope they don’t do the same here…

      yeah nova 3 had like 10 FPS it was sad

      No.

      • SHERIF

        He said its 10 FPS because it looks like this because of the lag…

    Can we connect a gamepad or a mouse? that guy is playing on his pc.

      nope you have to use the crappy touch screen BS controls

      • smtp25

        Agreed! I knew when I saw the start of ingame footage that they were controlling with mouse, far to precise for the on screen controls. All of you have completed the earlier modern combats how the hell can you get usable control out of it?

        I’ve got MOGA PRO controller on any android device. It make easer to play.. but I had to order from America :) So with this controller nice to play FPS :)

    This game is awesome! I already finished modern combat 3, it’s time to wait then play! Look at detail of that game! I mean it must have more graphics than modern combat 3! I wonder what amount of space does it take up?

  • pawfyd

    Don’t get too excited, it will look 10 times worse on the actual device than it does on the screenshots, like always.

    • LEGEND

      So true lol

    graphics are already good enough on mobile devices the problem now is the controls that suck especially with complicated console type games….. this touch screen BS does not work well for hypers games that need quick precise controls..

    Having prestiged almost 5 times as of now in MC3, LEGIT, I can say that you guys don’t know how to play the game. The touchscreen controls are ridiculously easy to learn and use,especially on higher sensitivity.
