Popular mobile games maker Gameloft today confirmed that its war shooter Modern Combat 4 will launch on iOS first this Thursday, December 6, 2012, followed by the Android version “shortly after”. You won’t be only playing a U.S. soldier as the game also puts you in the shoes of the villain Edward Page.

When we first saw the reveal trailer, it dawned on us that Gameloft’s latest chapter in the blockbuster FPS franchise offers eye-popping mobile graphics that takes full advantage of the power provided by Apple’s latest A6 and A6X chips.

The iOS version has been confirmed to support the iPhone 5 and developers tapped the Havok engine, which has been improved on mobile and now features real-time shadows. I’ve also included two dev diary clips for your viewing pleasure, find them right after the break…

Gameloft confirmed the news on Twitter.

Character animations were captured from live actors and Gameloft is promising nice-looking vehicle animations, large scale firefight, big open spaces and other perks.

All told, Modern Combat 4 has been completely redesigned in order to offer the best online experience  on smartphones, says part two of the dev diary video.

More information is available on the official Modern Combat web site.

With Rockstar unleashing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in three days, things should get interesting come Thursday.

I sure as hell am looking forward to playing Modern Combat 4: I’ve always been a big sucker for first-person shooters.
