Gameloft’s Modern Combat 5: Blackout gets a new trailer ahead of next week’s release

Gameloft launched another trailer for its upcoming Modern Combat title. The mobile shooter franchise will be returning to iOS, Android and Windows 8 on July 24th with Modern Combat 5: Blackout. The game will once again feature an action heavy single player campaign as well as a full multiplayer suite and Spec Op missions that are separate from the main story.

In the trailer (above), we a see a little more of the same Venice setting we caught in the E3 trailer along with more gameplay footage and some light story elements. Gameloft recently confirmed the Tokyo level along with a character progression system and 4 soldier classes.

While Gameloft has been criticized for its more than obvious nods to popular console franchises, many of its arguably knock-off mobile titles have very strong ratings among users, so chances are MC:5 Blackout will as well. Gameloft’s last MC title, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is currently sitting with 4 stars from 11767 Ratings on the App Store. 

Reviewers who have had a chance to go hands on with previews of the game (both single player and multiplayer) pointed out that the game plays very similar to MC4 and seem to have come away generally impressed. You can check out quite a bit more gameplay footage of MC:5 on Gameloft’s Twitch channel.

Head over to our latest roundup for all the best iOS, Android and console gaming deals.

belkin-thunderstorm-30-pin
Belkin offers its Thunderstorm iPad Theater Speaker Case for $49.99 with free shipping. That’s 75% below the original list price of $200 and the best deal that we’ve ever featured by $20. It’s also the best current price by $7 for the 30-pin model and $20 for the Lightning model.

Features include a full-range speaker system, protective casing, and various angles for optimal entertainment consumption.

We found it to be perfect for iPad users who frequently game or watch videos during our review:

I’ve tried many Bluetooth speakers from Logitech, Jawbone, NYNE, JBL and more, and I can honestly say none quite compare to Thunderstorm when it comes to a rich, immersive sound experience for watching video on an iPad. Its a unique experience with Thunderstorm, fine tuned specifically for the movie watching experience, and it’s definitely worth your attention if much of your time with an iPad is spent watching video.

Amazon reviewers rate it 4.1 out of 5 stars.

Save 30% on an AppleCare Protection Plan for your 13 or 15-inch MacBook

applecare-box

Even the biggest critics of warrantees generally agree that AppleCare for Macs is a worthwhile investment if you have the room in your budget. In fact, it consistently pummels competition in Consumer Reports’ yearly tech support survey.

applecare-mac
AppleCare for Macs extends the original 1-year hardware and 90-day phone support to 3-years. This is extremely valuable for Mac owners since these beautiful laptops are nearly impossible to repair for the average consumer and out-of-pocket repairs are extremely costly from Apple. Unfortunately, it does not cover accidental damage to your Mac, but one repair instance is likely to pay for the upfront cost of the plan.

Unlike iPhone and iPad AppleCare Protection Plans, it can be added to any Mac within 1-year of purchase. Each standalone AppleCare box will include a code that you can register online to your Mac’s serial number.

Here’s where to save 30% on AppleCare for 13 and 15-inch MacBooks, which is less than Apple’s .edu pricing: Read more
