If you wanted to see Modern Combat 4: Zero Hero in action, what we've got below is a good way to do that. The video is the first in what we imagine will be a long line of developer diaries for the game leading up to its release this fall. This one revolves around the tweaks and other spots of iteration Modern Combat 4 has seen on an engine, animation, and even narrative level.

As the diary explores all of this, it shows off scenes from the game. It also lets loose this tidbit: you won't just be playing as the good guys in the game's campaign. You'll also apparently play some missions as the game's central villain, which actually sounds like a pretty cool approach to the whole modern war story thing everyone is doing shooters right now. Here's hoping the execution on the dual perspective pays off.

    I have to admit it looks quite impressive.
    Doesn't mean it will be a good game though...

  • Realistic

    Looks ace!

  • Mummycook101

    Awesome cant wait until it comes out

  • ducksFANjason

    Wow it looks spectacular graphically! It almost reminds me of spec ops: the line, which I very much enjoyed. I'm always wary of shooters on the touchscreen but it controls decently, I'll bite :D

      **if it controls decently...

  • agentblank

    • JohnnyJ301

      How can you say, it looks o.k but not really that good?? Seriously it looks like a console game on an iphone. I would say that is really impressive. Pretty awesome for a game on the go....

    • LM10

      just ok... lol u funny

  • pylos

    And there is no way it's gonna work on an iPod 4G

    The dual perspective on a story from both the hero and villain could be great if done well. Many films and books do this to great affect. Whether Gameloft can pull it off is a different matter though. Given their track record I'd say no, but I'm willing to proven wrong.

    Lol, he said Zero Hero.

  • wingz

    (Ipod touch 4g user).......fuck

  • Wikilix

  • wildperson

    Anyone else notice the ragdoll corpse effect with the grenade? It's little things like that that give me hope that this will be a truly awesome game. The other MC games just felt...unfinished.

  • epikninja

    Looks fucking great. I'm stoked. Looks like i've found a thing to do when the world ends

    • JohnnyJ301

      If the world ends, there won't be any wifi, so it looks like you can only play campaign mode.

  • Respeto12

    Is it gonna work on ipod 4g??

    • ninthdevice

      There is no way the 4th gen will run this. If any 4th user wants to enjoy future awesome games they'll have to upgrade.

  • GSJ1977

    The dev was playing it on a mouse and keyboard.
    /facepalm

  • valz34

    A5 devices will destroy it! :)))

  • ConceptNormal

    My iPhone 5 is sexy and modern combat 4 knows it!

    • valz34

      Well your right.. But my ipodtouch 5g is more sexier than your iphone 5. but your iphone 5 is powerful than mine hahaha!! :D

  • Shadowking2214

    Do you people not realize they'll tweak the graphics to run on iPod 4? It'll look like nova 3,trust me on that
