Gameloft has just revealed more details about Modern Combat 5: Blackout, outlining the game’s multiplayer classes and level progression system.

Last week's announcement focused on the upcoming shooter's mission structure. This new reveal has swung the focus back towards multiplayer, outlining the four character classes: Assault, Heavy, Recon, and Sniper.

The four soldiers types are all archetypal, with Recon equipped for close range, the Sniper specialising in distance, and the other classes sopping up everything in between. That said, the class list does show an absence of any support roles, indicating that the focus is on all-out action.

We've also been given details about the level progression and upgrade system. Character and weapon xp will be persistent across both the single and multiplayer game modes. So, if you level-up a weapon or unlock a character perk in the single player campaign you will still have access to it when you jump into online matches, and vica versa.

Now the gun is cocked, we are sure that the Modern Combat 5 announcements will be coming thick and fast. Keep an eye out for more news - and that all important release date - here soon.
