E3 2013: ‘Modern Combat 5’ is More ‘Modern Combat’ and that’s Not Such a Bad Thing

mc5logoGameloft was showing off the newest entry in their flagship first-person shooter series Modern Combat here at E3 2013, and we kicked back as a representative gave us a lengthy demo of the game. There’s not a ton to report here, Modern Combat 5 is very much in the same vein of its predecessors but with a new story-driven campaign, improved visuals, and new weapons and gadgets. You know, sequel-y stuff. Check out the video below, and apologies in advance for the screen glare (there are far too many overhead lights at E3 in my opinion).

If you enjoyed the previous Modern Combat games, and I definitely did, then I think you’ll be in for another treat with the fifth entry in the series. I especially liked the new gadgets like the floating ball that can detect and visually tag enemy locations. Also, and this doesn’t translate as well to video, but the game is straight-up gorgeous in person. Look for plenty more on Modern Combat 5 as its release draws near, and by now you should know that adding it to your TouchArcade (Free) app Watch List will send you alerts on your mobile device as more news on the game hits.
