Gameloft releases an official, eye-catching trailer for Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Gameloft releases an official, eye-catching trailer for Modern Combat 5: Blackout
The upcoming fifth installment of Gameloft's mobile FPS game series, Modern Combat 5: Blackout, is due out this Thursday, July 24. The developer already released a video preview of the game at this year's E3, which showcased the jaw-dropping graphics of the much-anticipated game. Probably in order to soothe the crowd of eager fans (or probably to boost their impatience), Gameloft released an official trailer for the action-packed game, which reveals more about the gameplay and the spectacular, console-grade visuals of Modern Combat 5: Blackout.

Just like in the previous Modern Combat games, the latest one will take you on an military-centric trip around the globe, such as Venice, Italy, and Tokyo, Japan. Sightseeing won't be present in its purest form, however – you'll be involved in tense urban battles against a terrorist organization, which got hold of some weapons of mass destruction. Modern Combat 5: Blackout will put your reflexes and first-person-shooter skills to the test. 

According to Gameloft, the game will initially land on iOS and Android, while its Windows Phone will be released shortly after. The game will cost $6.99 and won't come with any in-app purchases. Modern Combat 5: Blackout will come with multiplayer, but unfortunately, it won't be a cross-platform one, meaning that if you have an iPhone, you won't be able to play against Android and WP gamers. Hopefully, that won't be a dealbreaker for you.

Without further ado, scroll down and check out the arresting trailer of what has the potential to be an even more spectacular game down below.

Touch screen (especially for FPS) doesn't come close to a mouse and keyboard or even controller

Don't you have to buy a mouse and a keyboard for your computer to play? Wouldn't you buy a controller for android? I've got the moga pro power and it's great.

That's like saying you need to buy a touchscreen to play android games... Mouse and keyboard is a necessity for a computer.

I'm actually playing Dead Trigger 2 on FB (desktop browser via infinity). With mouse and keyboard it's definitely very playable. Graphics are not on par with dedicated PS3 FPS games but for a free game not too shabby IMO. I'll play MC5 on FB (PC) too if they have it.

GPUs arent the problem, especially with the Nvidia K1 now, which is supposedly faster than the PS3/360 Touch screen (especially for FPS) doesn't come close to a mouse and keyboard or even controller Also not as much people buy mobile games compared to console/PC games, so devs dont feel mobile games are worth the investment

Not worth the investment? Lolz . why Gameloft ain't bankrupt yet? There are millions who enjoy playing on mobile devices.

EA will release a similar game, it's totally free, but would cost you $0.99 per weapon to get you through those difficult levels

I gave up playing fps games on touch based devices, it simply doesn't feel right.

I think touch screen is the future due to economic of scale. New gen gamer are less willing to pay for dedicated console and PC. I normally allocate 4K for my diy PC which I will build when Nvidia release their GTX 8 series. In the mean time I getting myself adapted to touch screen control. Getting better at it through actual use. Still prefer keyboard and mouse by a long shot, second being the Xbox controller.

1. Use a Shield. 2. Use a wired Xbox360 controller, and a $1.50 USB adapter and use it on your phone, no shenanigans it just works! 3. Buy a Moga gamepad
