Modern Combat 5: Blackout teaser trailer brings the noise to Venice

Modern Combat 5 teaser

With just a few more days until the big E3 2014 video game trade show begins, the folks at mobile publisher Gameloft have released the first teaser trailer for Modern Combat 5: Blackout, the next installment for one of their most popular franchises.

The trailer itself has all of the first person modern military shooting action players of the Modern Combat series have come to expect from Gameloft. The brief teaser shows what looks like a campaign mission set in the canal-filled city of Venice, Italy. That means players can expect to shoot enemy helicopters while sitting on a speeding boat surrounded by buildings that are centuries old.

There's not really anything else that's revealed in this teaser, other than the game is "coming soon" for Android, iOS and Windows platforms. It's likely that a longer trailer will be released by Gameloft when E3 2014 begins next week in Los Angeles. Gameloft released some brief story details about Modern Combat 5 back in April, where the main character will have to track a terrorist group in a worldwide campaign that also includes a stop in Tokyo.

Are you a fan of the Modern Combat series and does this teaser for the fifth installment get you pumped up for the game's eventual release?

No Xbox no buy

anirban130 says:

These sort of games without Xbox also are worth playing...

No, they're not. It's a rip-off of CoD, and is unplayable without a MOGA purchase. Why would I spend $7 on a rip-off that I have to spend another $25-50 on, just for it to be a serviceable rip-off?

So any other Call of Duty ripoff is cool if you can increase your meaningless gamerscore? The logic!

Th3 I3LooD says:

But it would really suck if it's not Live enabled

nelsonecm says:

So you play games just for the points and achievements. I remember when those were made just to have fun.

Conhavi says:

This game will be better without Xbox support, because if it is a Xbox game then the game won't have cross platform multiplayer.

Get over it already!

jlynnm350z says:

I'm so tired of hearing that. Your loss, your a fool. There are good games without the all mighty Xbox achievements. Seems faster

coip says:

Games without Xbox integration are not as fun. No Xbox, No buy. I'll spend my money on Xbox games instead. #SaveXboxWP

Zsxd says:

God you're so lame. It's funny seeing you and all of 5 other people use that hash tag like it's ever gonna mean anything.

bitz0071 says:

Coming soon App store, Google Play, and after a month Windows store

anirban130 says:

After a year may be... Lol

ralexand56 says:

I'll take that at this point.

Idzaudin Idz says:

I love it! Nice graphic! Can't wait!

Deaconclgi says:

$5 is in my Microsoft Wallet from Bing Rewards. I guess I will buy this. The graphics in this trailer look about the same as the original MC5 trailer from last year in my opinion.

The biggest thing lacking in mobile games currently is realistic lighting. The games have greater texture detail and polygon cound by realistic or real-time lighting is still limited with the a lot of the graphical engines that are being used currently on mobile devices.

The chipsets are capable so hopefully we will see better lighting in future games. I would like to see Graphics Settings be an option on all games just as they are on PC games and that would solve the issue of people having low end phones that cannot run games and also people having high end phones yet the games default to a lower graphical quality.

Oh, I remember the days I was happy playing nfs2, then, well I don't know "what" happened. Hmmm.....

HussainJudge says:

Aaaaannnddd, it will never come for low memory devices like the Lumia 520

modern combat 4 works excellent on lumia 520 maybe this time they learn from that

Aashish13 says:

Sorry to be of topic but my Bing news live tile isn't working. I downloaded thrice but still its not working. Please help!!!!!

safesax2002 says:

It's called starting a new forum topic....

Pranjal Rai says:

Hey, I had the exact same problem a few weeks ago. Try this. Don't pin it to the start screen, for a really long time,(for 2-3 weeks). Do it after the said time, and I hope it starts working again for you. This method worked for me.

paulheu says:

Maybe someone needs to explain to John Callaham he left Neowin and now writes for a __Windows Phone__ centric site??! Why is this here when it's not on/about/for/coming to Windows Phone? WP central is going down hill very quick and should really rebrand to 'whatever is remotely relevant to Microsoft' central.. Or just send Callaham back to Neowin where these articles are really more suited. Or was hiring him from Neowin meant as an indication WPC is no longer a site about Windows Phone.


Not liking this development much really.

""Why is this here when it's not on/about/for/coming to Windows Phone?"


What are you rambling on about?.. this is coming to Windows Phone. Eventually.

safesax2002 says:

Yes, clarification would be nice since there have been many articles lately that have nothing to do with WP. The ones that mention an app or game for other platforms and that aren't coming to WP are particularly frustrating; almost infuriating.

Dude,are you high?

This article is about a game which is coming to Windows Phone.Get your shit together

1) This game is coming to Windows Phone. They say so in the video. Not sure what the confusion is here.

2) WPC has always been about more than Windows Phone. That may be the primary focus, but from the beginning there have posts not about Windows Phone. We've covered Windows, OneDrive, Surface, and more. If you can't deal with the fact that there is Microsoft worth covering outside of Windows Phone, I don't know what to tell you.

Meddleking says:

so then would you please take the time to elaborate how these articles have anything remotely related to Microsoft?



It appears that WPC is gradually evolving to be a more general type of technology news website like ngadget or pcworld.

milfermon says:

Coming late to WP, and then again for 1gb ram phones, they don't realize how WP market works

Pan Pikis says:

Come on, you bought phone for few bucks a want play hi-end stuff? buy lagdroid for same money and you'll be happy for making a call:D

Zsxd says:

Stop calling it "lagdroid", you sound like a kid, and even worse, a fanboy.

karelj says:

Was that a Havok?

Looks good for a mobile device hame

Lundon44 says:

Wonder how the 1520/930 will handle this game or it will be laggy.

wphashan says:

I don't like to play fps games on my mobile. Shame on you Gameloft

VxOC says:

Hmmm, I suspect my 630 with 512mb of ram will never be seeing this game. Damn.

atherosxd says:

I doubt if my 1020 can handle it.
