Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour gets extended trailer
Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is heading to iOS and Android devices soon and Gameloft has released a teaser trailer ahead of launch
The fourth instalment in Gameloft’s Modern Combat series is about to hit mobile devices and the publisher has released a longer reveal trailer showing extra footage from the game.
Storylines for the genre are typically pan-global and apocalyptic in scale and tone, so no doubt you’ll be saving the world from some rogue general with WMDs, or something.
For starters the trailer indicates the US President has been kidnapped and you're off to rescue him, but there's probably a few conspiratorial twists and turns before the end.
In Modern Combat 4: Ground Zero, there’s a bit of a near-future vibe, with contemporary military hardware sitting side-by-side with flashy sci-fi style helmets, weapons and aircraft.
The Modern Combat series is also known for its dramatic set pieces at key points in the story, including things like ‘on-rails’ car chase sections where you have to shoot pursuing enemies.
In the trailer we see some kind of close-quarters knife fight, which looks suitably intense and may be a quicktime event requiring timed button presses.
The graphics are much fancier than previous games in the series, with real-time shadows and snazzy particle effects and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were looking at console footage here.
The end of the trailer pegs a ‘Fall’ release for iPad, iPhone and Android devices, so anytime in the next month or so seems likely. You can bet more information will be coming from Gameloft soon.
Alongside the trailer, there are some screenshots, showcasing tanks, helicopters, ships and guns across a range of environments, from tropical islands to dusty cityscapes.
Gameloft is also asking for players to submit their wishlists for features they’re most looking forward to from the game.
If you're a fan of series such as Call of Duty, Medal of Honour, Modern Warfare or Battlefield on consoles this could well be worth a look.
