New Modern Combat 5: Blackout Story Details
Travel around the world to prevent terrorists from destroying mankind.
Gameloft delayed Modern Combat 5: Blackout to make it a quality product. While we can't argue with that, the wait for this highly anticipated first person shooter made us antsy. At least on the positive side, the company revealed new story elements to satisfy our virtual appetites.
Blackout will open in Venice, Italy, something we've known since the reveal. That said, players will take control of main character Phoenix as he criss-crosses the globe thwarting terrorists, even going as far as Tokyo. This will include both compact and dynamic missions, with the goal to ratchet up the game's intensity. Meanwhile, Phoenix must convince his allies to deal with a mysterious secret.
Sadly, that's it for now, but look at it this way: at least the game is still on track. The fact that Gameloft wants to talk about it is a great sign.
We'll have more on Modern Combat 5: Blackout later this year.
