Gameloft has released Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour for iOS devices. The game is available on the App Store for $6.99 (roughly Rs 380), and requires iOS 4.3 or later. It is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (4th and 5th generation), iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation), and iPad mini.
Here is the story according to the App Store: "In the wake of a nuclear disaster, the only chance to avoid global devastation is in the hands of the few elite soldiers who must track down and rescue the world’s leaders from a frighteningly familiar terrorist group."
Gameloft has also redesigned the multiplayer mode with an improved loadout system and more than 20,000 weapon arrangements. There is also a new specialisation system with redesigned skills, along with a new ranking system
Gameloft is known for quite a few franchises, and the Modern Combat series is a major one for the company. Judging from the trailer, Gameloft seems to be continuing the series as it has always done: by making it another modern military shooter. While Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour does look generic, the visual fidelity seems pretty good considering it's a phone game. The previous games in the series are famous for their multiplayer component, and Gameloft seems to have improved on that.
Gameloft released Wild Blood for Android devices back in October. The game boasts of a variety of features, including multiplayer with 8-player team deathmatch and capture the flag modes. Gameloft also released a trailer for the game's launch on Google Play.
According to Gameloft, the story of the game is: “King Arthur has gone mad, fueled by his jealousy toward Lancelot for romancing his wife, Queen Guinevere. In his desperation, Arthur has been tricked by his sister, the all-powerful sorceress Morgana Le Fey, to open the Hellgate and allow all forms of demons to enter the world. Meanwhile, Morgana has captured Guinevere and holds her hostage on the magical island of Avalon. Now Lancelot needs to confront King Arthur and Morgana, and free the world from these evil creatures and save Guinevere.”
Wild Blood got a trailer in August, where Gameloft showed off much of its gameplay, including the level up system, different kinds of weapons and the variety of spells you can use. The game is an action role playing game (RPG) with a focus on combat, much like the Fable series or Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, with a focus on hack-and-slash gameplay, as opposed to stats or other character development.
The game boasts of many features, including real-time, full 3D graphics with special effects powered by Unreal technology, 20 different kinds of enemies including boss battles, a wide variety of weapons, intense and gory combat with melee and ranged battles, and varied environments with puzzles to reach hidden locations for extra bonuses.
Wild Blood was the next major game by Gameloft after the release of Asphalt 7 back in August. Asphalt 7 was available for iOS devices from the second half of June, and in August, Gameloft released it for Android.
