Modern Combat 5 Blackout (classes 001)

That wait is finally over. After more than a year of delays, teasers and speculation, Gameloft’s ‘Modern Combat 5: Blackout’ is now available in the App Store. The game, which is one of the year’s most highly-anticpated titles, costs $6.99 and features no in-app purchases.

For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with our MC5 coverage, it starts out in Italy, where you have been sent on a special operation to secure a transport of WMDs from a particularly well-armed terrorist group. Keep reading for a full overview and gameplay clip…

An overview of the game’s storyline:

The story will indeed begin in Venice, Italy where Phoenix, the main character of the game, is sent on a special operation to secure a transport of WMDs from a particularly well-armed terrorist group. From there the plot will take gamers on a globe-trotting adventure, including a particularly harrowing sequence in Tokyo where Phoenix has to fight amidst total anarchy while trying to convince his allies to accept an uncomfortable secret. By the end, players will have experienced a range of visually-stunning settings, and thrilling action-packed combat sequences.  

And some of the game’s top features:

Choose your favorite class

And finally, a video showing gameplay:

There are a few things worth noting here. The first is that, as aforementioned, there are no in-app purchases, which is nice considering Gameloft is notorious for them. The second thing is the game requires an Internet connection, meaning playing on the plane, for most, is out.

At any rate, if you’re interested in Modern Combat 5, you can find the game in the App Store for $6.99. It comes in at 708MB, and it’s universal for both iPhone and iPad. On that note, Gameloft says you’ll need an iPad 2 (or newer), iPhone 4s (or newer), or 5th gen iPod touch.

    So Yes Or no – to controller support?

  • Abdl

    Requires an internet? Oh crap!

  • Dani Hayes

    “no in-app purchases.” I’m in. I hate in-app purchases.

  • onesimpleclik

    Also, I think Gameloft are banning anyone who tries to play multiplayer using pirated copies of the game – since some idiot who got the game early for free, decided to get it cracked & push it out on torrent sites.

    • Sketch

      You can download Gameloft Anti-Ban Tweak if you know where to look. So once again Gameloft loses.

      In life you should always try to earn money and respect.

      • Muhammad !

        I earned RESPECT .. But i have no luck with money

      • Mozaik

        RESPECT is form of patience and you don’t have it yet.

      • Muhammad !

        Respect is not from “PATIENCE” !!! Respect is something that you earn and it depends on your acts ! I’m fking 17 , and I got respect from my family , my friends and pretty much from everybody .. So stop judging me because you don’t even know .. >_<

    Is there any way to play it on jailbreak iphone?:(

    • CODENAME_CAFE

      I’m jailbroken and no problems here. just got this game by legit way 🙂

  • MediaVantage .

    Paid 4 D game but Y do I keep getting this ????? Every time ???. Can’t use D app. Anyone experiencing this? (Jailbroken iPad 4 iOS 7.1.2)

    • Jordan D’Souza

      Two reasons come to my mind:

      This one’s a theory:
      1. Gameloft has this thing where it recognizes if a device is jailbroken or not. Once it does that it automatically bans the player – regardless if they bought the game legitimately or not.

      This one makes more sense, but can still be wrong:
      2. You downloaded a pirated version, and when you realized it didn’t work, you paid for the real game. Unfortunately, your game data has already been sent to Gameloft and they have already banned you – just like that. You’ll need to contact them to un-ban your account.

      • Tommy

        the first point – seriously?

      • CODENAME_CAFE

        No lol I’m jailbroken and no problems so far except that internet connection is required all the time :p just buy the game from app store

      • Tommy

        I’m playing Asphalt 8 and have spent like a hundred bucks buyin cars and such and I sure as hell hope Gameloft doesn’t frickin ban me for jailbreaking my device. Just jailbroken 3 days ago as I saw a tweak which I really needed.

      • CODENAME_CAFE

        No they will not ban you. from what i heard only people who really got banned using pirated MC5 will still baneed even if they purchased it and login using their own Apple ID. you contact gameloft for that tho and they will remove the ban.

      • MediaVantage .

        Thanks Jordan: it was more than likely a server issue on Gameloft’s end; bcos I later discovered a statement on their site to that regard. I probably was among ad very ‘eager few’ wanting to log on since midnight. All I did was delete the app, re-downloaded by late noon EST on 24th and VOILA!!
        Patience my friends, patience. I went back & gave ’em 5 stars.

    • Alberto Espinal

    • Aanish

      Download the Super VPN if its avaliable on App Store…
      I experienced the same issue but now its fixed!!

      • MediaVantage .

        Thanks. I’ll try it

  • Tony

    That’s great no in game purchases but requires internet? Why? I can see for multiplayer but for single too?

    • Jordan D’Souza

      It’s a server based game. It’s to prevent users with a pirated version of the game from playing the game. As soon as you open the app, your data is sent to Gameloft and once they catch your game as pirated they automatically ban you.

      • Tony

        So it’s not actually connected fully during the game, just as soon as you start it. That makes more sense for people like myself who play single player. I’m not into multiplayer.

  • test_11

    Does not support ipod 4G!? I would going to cracked MC5 app and I have anti-ban tweak already on my ipod 4G :p..

    I know hot to fix “can’t connect 2 internet” error but not safe

    go cydia and delete “Substrate safe mode”

    and it works well

  • Azrael7

    For the ones who are having the “Fail to connect! Please check your internet connection and try again” problem just unistall iapfree, aipcrazy and iap cracker and that should do the trick, also you can use localiap and the game will still work, i already tried.
