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.
