The newly titled Modern Combat: Blackout, the fifth instalment in Gameloft’s popular military shooter, plans to take you from Venice to Tokyo in its single player campaign.
This time out, the team has focused on shorter missions for the new game's single player mode to deliver a more varied experience. They claim this has allowed them to create more intense stages that deliver more moment-to-moment gameplay than in previous instalments.
The story will follow the character of Phoenix on a mission to secure a transport of WMD’s from a terrorist group in Venice. As the story unfolds, Phoenix will move to Tokyo, which is in a state of civil unrest, where he must try to convince his allies to unite behind him.
Until we see how the jump from Venice to Tokyo transpires, we are going to reserve judgment on whether Gameloft’s more compact mission will deliver the thrills fans are after.
Gameloft have promised more news on Modern Combat: Blackout in the coming weeks, so keep your scopes trained on AppSpy for more details soon.
