Well, I hope all of you are having a great time. I haven't been active on the wiki as of late, but some important news drew me back here.
This article, released about a month back, announces that Gameloft has begun a soft-launch of the game on Android and and Windows. Here are the countries the soft launch reaches out to:
- New Zealand
I acknowledge that this article may be out of date, but I thought it was worthwhile sharing.
You can also now pre-order the game, and Gameloft promises you that you'll be eligible to receive prizes once the game fully launches.
Gameloft also published some gameplay footage, which you can check out here. I know this article is all over the place, but I hope you …

Gameloft revealed a ton of MCV details recently. Some of the main points:
- Brand new graphics engine
- No campaign
- Automatic shooting (traditional shoot button to be added later)
- ADS button replaced by double tapping the screen
- Play one of 12 "Agents" in different categories: Attacker, Defender, Assassin, Specialist
- Wall running on a few maps
- Focus on "eSports"
- Future controller support
- Player cannot pick from a variety of weapons, each Agent only has one
- Knifing and aiming down sights is limited to just some of the Agents
There will be a soft launch "soon", but it will be limited- 5 maps and one game mode, a 4v4 Zone Control.
The new graphics look awesome, as do the maps, but I'm not excited…Read more >
Finally some news about Modern Combat Versus. Well, if you can call this "news". The official website has been launched at http://www.moderncombatversus.com with at this moment just teaser images. I expect the website to be somewhat like MC4's but we don't know anything about its future, so let's just hope so.
Also, there are three characters released by the team, check them out at Gameloft's blog post or at the MCV article. Two males, two females (21-century equality), that's all we know.
Let's start stoking up the hype train, it's gonna take a while.Read more >
The eleventh update for Modern Combat 5: Blackout went live on September 21, 2016, and alongside a new game mode and the typical bug fixes, there's more under the skin than what meets the eye.
Gameloft added a new armor for the Sapper class, called the Vulcan Armor, as well as new camouflage patterns for said armor. The armor's unique special ability is immunity to all killstreaks apart from the Airstrike.
Also available for the Sapper, is the brand new Shotgun Turret, which can be upgraded seven times, like other Tier 7 weapons. A new helmet was also released for the Sapper, called the Shibing Helm, which gives the player a slightly increased melee range (sigh), but gives a 10% Weapon Score penalty, which will negatively affect the rate you u…

So Just today Gameloft decided to release a showreel of several games due for release in Q4 of 2016. (Found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2qrXXEPnnY) One of the relevant games shown is Modern Combat Versus. The game seems to have taken inspiration from COD BO3 this time around. What I've gathered from this quick preview is that a class system will be implemented (A velocity tactical assualt class member was shown off). Much like BO3, this game's theme looks to be set quite a bit in the future. Wall running also seems to be a thing. It looks like custom reticles might be making an addition.
It looks like MCV might be borrowing some MC5 animations and textures with the blood, physics and water. Also a lighter cell shading and ssao se…Read more >
I'm not sure how everyone on this wiki seemed to have missed this for a month, but apparently there is a new Modern Combat game coming out, and it's developed by Gameloft Montreal. It will likely be released early 2017 or even sooner.
The game was revealed in a PowerPoint from Gameloft about sales. Check out page 52.
Regarding Gameloft's sales strategy, MCV is highly expected to be freemium.

The sixth update for Modern Combat 5: Blackout dropped for iOS on March 14, 2016, and has gone live on Android a couple of days later.
Gameloft has completely changed the progression system in Modern Combat 5. Weapon score is no longer used to unlock weapons, instead, the player must acquire blueprints to unlock these weapons via Supply Packs, Elite Packs, or by playing online. The higher the tier, the more blueprints you will need to acquire in order to unlock. Therefore, you can unlock Tier 7 weapons by not even unlocking the Tier 6 weapons by just finding the Tier 7 blueprints.
]] There is also a new weapon upgrade system, and apart from upgrading your weapon with muzzles and magazines and whatnot, you can further upgrade your weapon usi…

The fourth update for Modern Combat 5: Blackout has been released for iOS today. The Android version will be released later today, and the Windows Phone version will be released in September.
- Character customisation
- Players can now customise their character completely. Not only the helmet, but also the armor, gloves, and shoes. You can also give it a custom camouflage. All these items are unlocked by Supply Packs.
- Suit Abilities
- If all items of a suit are found (by supply packs), the suit is unlocked. Each suit has special abilities.
- The update seems to contain a new map named "Vantage".
- MC5 asks for your location to show local advertising and players in your vicinity.
I must say I'm impressed about this update. I didn't expect this l…

Today is one year after Modern Combat 5: Blackout was released. In a year time, MC5 has changed a lot, starting with the fact that it became the first freemium game in the Modern Combat series.
Gameloft has announced a "little surprise", and there are rumours about aliens or something, but I guess we will know more at the end of the day.
- Update: the surprise was a new cover image on Gameloft's Twitter page. They added a new character, which might hint the content of the next update. Check it out by yourself, I don't want to make false assumptions.
I remember back one year, with all the livestreams by the producers and Ryan. The two streams by the producers were pretty sad, the game even lost the connection during the stream, which is still on…
