Modern Combat 5 Blackout (classes 001)

It’s been nearly a year since we first saw a preview of Gameloft’s Modern Combat 5, and the game has yet to see a release date. In fact, we’ve heard almost nothing about the title in the past 11 months, leading some folks to believe that the project had either been shelved or canceled.

But that has certainly changed in the last few weeks. In late April, Gameloft offered up new details about the game, and a week later it broke down its new unified progression system. And today, it posted a pair of beautiful new screenshots showing Modern Combat 5 in action…

In addition to posting the new screenshots, Gameloft gave select gaming sites hands-on demos of the new Modern Combat. Touch Arcade says that the game plays a lot like Modern Combat 4—and that’s not necessarily a bad thing—but notes that the graphics are a ‘big step up.’

Modern Combat 5: Blackout begins in Venice, Italy, where the main character Phoenix has been sent on a special mission to secure a transport of dangerous weapons from a very well-armed terrorist group. From there the plot will take gamers on a journey around the globe.

Unfortunately, we still don’t have a specific release date, but Gameloft does say it’ll have more information to reveal at the E3 gaming expo next month. Also, for those interested, the developer will be hosting a live stream on their Twitch channel tomorrow starting at 1PM EST.

    Surprised they didn’t name it Modern Combat 5: Advanced Combat.

    • Jerry


  • JulianZH

    Same game different name….

    • Mozaik

      With better graphics !!!

  • justme

    best FPS game on iOS
    Would be damn awsome if they add voice chat in multiplayer mode, then you can speak with your team using earpods

  • XboxOne

    If it’s a lot like Modern Combat 4 and the bodies don’t fall realistically when shot ill pass on this.

  • Sachin

    Please don’t be freemium.

    • justme

      I hope they don’t do that

    • FeaR Fuze

      It won’t be freemium, they told it 😛

  • Omar Sharif

    I really hope that the game won’t be bigger in size than MC4 , MC4 was so massive (2.0GB)

    • Jak Soares

      Sorry Omar, but if you take a look in Xcom Enemy Within for Android, as an example, this game has more than 3GB. So i actually did not expect less than that for MC4. And if MC4 eventually got released in 2GB size it wil be (FOR SURE) very glitchy, don’t you think?

      • Mozaik

        Xcom enemy is also for iOS devices its 3.5gb.

    • Ruben Macias

      Gameloft confirmed the GAME file size as 800 Mb.
      I hope that this helps. 🙂


    Imagine if this game will force you to have an active internet connection all the time! THIS WILL BE SO FREAKING SUCKS

  • Did MC4 ever get iOS7 Controller Support? Either way I hope this one does (Controller For All FTW!!) lol

    • Ruben Macias

      Yes, MC4 got controller support from the MOGA Controllers. 🙂

      • Jeff Lopez

        which MOGA controller supports MC4 for ios WITHOUT having to jailbrake?!?!?!

      • Ruben Macias

        Moga ace
