Hold on a second. I left my notes by the coffee maker. OK, got them. So, Modern Combat 5 is a video game. It features the following: explosions, a red bicycle, explosions, guns, explosions, busted up statues, crows, and standard first-person action. That's what I've gathered so far from watching the game's first trailer, which debuted this morning while I was still in the thick of my breakfast.

In hindsight, it's not the most revealing bit of video on the web, but this is the fifth game in a series called Modern Combat. I think we all know what to expect at this point. That's to say, lots of screaming, shooting, scripted scenes, and plenty of perk-filled multiplayer action.

Creator Gameloft isn't talking about release dates or price just yet. If I had to guess, this information is going to be dished out at E3 next week.

  • iOSPeace

    I can't wait!

    • GameIoft

      No your being a bad boy.

  • rdw2552

    I can't wait but i don't have another 7 bucks just lying around to buy it and we all know they're gonna make it 7 bucks again

    • iammane

      You'd rather wait four hours for another magazine or grenade?

      • gNades

        lol, I agree no micro transactions ill pay up front please.

    • Ben Norvell

      ... You don't have $7?

    • Lamar Taylor

      $7 is the price of a fast food meal that is large sized. Most people finish that meal in 10 minutes and have nothing left when the meal is over. Here for $7 you get a game you can play for weeks or even months. Sounds like a good deal to me.

      • blackbear219

        I would hardly qualify 300% of your daily fat content and an increased risk of heart disease as "nothing". sheesh.

      • jForsythe

        Yeah but you need food to live.

  • vesp67

    Wow this is really early for them to announce it. MC4 only came out a few months ago. I hope it's good though:)

    • dickmaster

      Stupid bitch MC4 came out like a year ago!!!!

    • ihd1234567890

      its been a year

  • SandmanSandlin

    Modern Combat 5: Ghouls.

    • Jacob007

      LOL, I see what you did there

    • rotopenguin

      Your sidekick is a bomb-sniffing kitten. Original!

      • SandmanSandlin

        lol that would be great

    • blakedaking

      Omg you made me think of ghost and ghouls, wouldn't that be great on ios?

  • Xylone

    I'll poop a chicken out of sadness if they surprisingly made this F2P and IAP dominant. D:

    • Samurix16


  • D-Vader

    That logo doesn't happen to look like MW3's at all... /sarcasm

  • felipe


    • flashbackflip

      No, MW3 😉

      WOW - is when they make new expansion on O&C

  • FrehleyzComet

    Gameloft has been terrible lately with all of their freemium nonsense. It wouldn't surprise if that's the route they take with this.

    • AlexMilo

      You should check out Blitz Brigade then! Freemium game from Gameloft, great Team Fortress 2 'copy'.


    Too early.

  • curtneedsaride

    Probably gonna be F2P... Man, I think I'll revisit NOVA 1 & 2 again instead. No IAP and shooting aliens. My wallet and conscience will feel better.

    • dariusjr98

      Dude, I'd totally go back to those games, but they both have sound bugs unfortunately.

      Why, oh why don't you update your old games Gameloft?!

      • JBRUU

        There's a fix for that. Open up the app in question, then go back to your springboard. Now open the app again via multitasking. Voila! Your sound works.

        I was ecstatic when some good samaritan told me this, pass it along next time someone else is in the dark as well 😉

      • dariusjr98

        Thank you SO much for telling me this, I wish I'd known sooner. Awesome!

  • Rothgarr

    Visually it's pretty stunning. I wonder if those are say, iPhone 5 graphics? iPad 4? Some new Android device?

  • handycapman

    Yes, but does it have dogs?

  • Sebastian Gomez

    Gameloft's a pro for disappointing fans, so...

    It'll probably have a lot of town building and management, too...

    Anyway, we're all exagerating a little so let's just hope it'll be as good as previous games have been.

  • Rip73

    Its not going to be f2p.

  • sdefranco1

    For Christ's sake Gameloft, don't make another Freemium POS train wreck game this time. Keep it like the others, and ill gladly pay 6.99!

  • valz34

    Ahhh!! I wish my ipad mini can handle that! ~_~

    • valz34

      I mean the A5 processor do you think can handle the graphics??

      • Jacob007

        I'd assume the A5 chip could handle the graphics.

  • Scary Guns

    Go freemium go!! Thank god I did not purchase the previous version.

    • marc0313

      Are you fucking stupid. MC4 is awesome. And it's $7. Why are freemium and MC4 even in the same sentence?

      • Scary Guns

        Listen kid. You seem deprived of life. Get laid. Dork.

      • dariusjr98

        What? In so confused right now.

        Oh yeah, very original on the "Get laid" shitty comeback. TOTALLY haven't heard that before.

      • Ben Norvell

        So how was your 5th birthday you had recently little one! I bet there was a piñata and a funny clown there!

  • B30

    And another direct dumpster production from lamesoft, most likely fully loaded with IAP crap!

  • iValerio90

    aah la mia italia.. but will be freemium im sure

  • wildperson

    Gameloft has never made any of their main IP games free, except for dungeon hunter. I guarantee this will be premium prices.

  • Skullinton

    They don't seem to be pulling anything from the next CoD title... yet.

    MC3 = USA invaded like MW3
    MC4 = Drones like BO2
    MC5 = Last US battalion???

    That being said I am positive that it wont be freemium and that they will keep the iAp model from the previous game.

  • JohnnyJ301

    Way to early for another Modern Combat game. I really believe that Gameloft thinks they are the call of duty franchise on iOS. They emulate them in every way. That's not a bad thing but already showing trailers for another modern combat game that probably won't run properly until the iPad 5/ iPhone 6 comes out is a bit excessive.

    • ihd1234567890

      it has been a year now.

  • lepeos

    Brad you're an idiot

  • Shirflex

    I still think the a5 chip eill support the graphics.. Still the a4 supports the latest games.. With less graphics of course

    • JohnnyJ301

      Sorry but the a4 chip is becoming antiquated. Especially for the newer games. Modern combat 3 and 4 on the ipod touch 4G is lousy. These games are meant to run on a newer system.

  • Illuminerdy

    In this thread I learned Gameloft is a developer who has a history with gross IAP, rarely updates games to fix bugs, produces poor man's quality versions of titanic IPs, and, oh, that you folks still support them.

    • dariusjr98

      Hey, when they make a good game, it's good. When they make a bad game, it's BAD.

      Besides, Modern Combat, NOVA, and maybe even Gangstar are the only reasons some of us even give a crap about Gameloft anymore.

  • YoungSinatra

    I'm Hoping The A5 Chip Can Handle This .. I'm Sure It'll Lag Just A Little On A5 Chip Devices

    • valz34


  • Lamar Taylor

    I love the Modern Combat series and can't wait for this latest edition.

  • SmackDatButt

    I'm not gonna drop another $7 on the same game, with just a bit of polish.

  • iPodHacker1O1

    Wtf? Already? But didn't they release MC4 in December? I don't get it. They should've released N.O.V.A. 4 instead.

    • Skullinton

      Gameloft Montreal does MC serie and Gameloft Busharesch (I probably spelled that wrong) does NOVA.

  • wojovox

    Looks great, but the touchscreen is simply not set up for this type of gaming. We need an iOS remote!

    • Skullinton

      Gameloft actually sells one for its games.

      • WarMachine

        At a ridiculously high price....

      • matus

        Which they no longer seem to support or even remember they made.

  • Its Finn

    Yet another modern combat game to buy, yet another to be disappointed with, Anyone else agree that Black Pegasus was the best, I had the most fun and still play it on this 5 g iPod 🙂

    • Johnny101

      Mc2 is still the best IMO, mc3 and mc4 are still very good but made for a newer device. When playing mc4 the movement is very slow but maybe it's because I played it on an old iPod 4G.

    • Jbdawinna

      I love mc2bp I would play it forever if they got rid of the hackers and gave it iphone 5 compatibility.

  • VIK_crazy

    I can't wait

  • halfcack

    Yeah, I can't wait either. Those two or three days of playing on an even field, having fun, then the hackers will own the game once again, everything.

    Speeders, unlimited health, able to find you even though you are in stealth mode, can't seem to hit anyone, getting killed again all the time and listen to the mods say, it's your connection, there are no hackers, it's just a case of them seeing you before you are seeing them, you have a way to report "suspicious players" who we will watch, it's just a case of Internet delay, we're working on it, and the all time favorite, aim bot. I just can't wait to sneak up on a guy, unload my auto shotgun in his back, then have him turn around and one shot me.

    I just can't wait.

    • Terwilke

      You just described all of the call of duties ever since black ops 1

    • ihd1234567890

      u know wat MC4 doesn't have a lot of hackers. Even if they did they can't go far. Thats becuz Gameloft actually gave a crap about hackers becuz there was literally a revolution in the reviews about hackers and more hackers. MC4 may have hackers, but they can't get too much stronger that you can't kill him. if at least 2 ppl team up the hacker will fall.

  • GameIoft

    This game will be released next month because of the the technical issues we are having. Sorry for any inconvenience. Don't forget to check out our other great games on the app store.
