Gameloft has just revealed its new Squad vs Squad multiplayer mode for upcomin shooter sequel Modern Combat 5: Blackout.
Squad vs Squad is a new take on Modern Combat’s multiplayer, allowing you to form persistent teams with friends. Offering a similar experience to the standard multiplayer, you will still be able to take part in Capture the Flag, VIP, Free for All, and Team Battles.
The difference is that you'll no longer be placed in random squads. Instead, you'll be able select your own teammates from your friends list, and cherry pick your perfect platoon of ultimate badasses.
The various classes the game offers will allow for plenty of diversity between squads. This will let you choose any combination for your team, from having multiple snipers covering your movements, to a team filled with up-close-and-personal recon specialists.
The squad and global chat features will help you coordinate with your team, and discuss higher level tactics both in and out of combat.
Gameloft is clearly aware that your squad may not always share your goals, and have created both solo and squad timed events to account for this. These ensure that, if your team is struggling, you will be able to make personal progress, while still incentivising working with your squad to climb the global leaderboards.
With E3 just around the corner, keep your sights trained on AppSpy for more news on Modern Combat 5 soon.
