Gameloft does its best Rockstar impression, pulls Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour from the Play Store

Similar to the Rockstar issue regarding the release of Vice City; within 12 hours of Modern Combat 4 finally put on the Play Store, it came right down. According to Gameloft, it’ll be ‘deactivated’ from the Play Store until ‘download conditions are back to normal.’ It wouldn’t have anything to do with the beastly 1.87GB file coupled with demand would it? It wasn’t an issue last night, but today when everyone woke up to read the news that it was finally available, they may have hosed the whole thing. So we wait – again. Stand by as we’ll provide an update when Gameloft gets it resolved.

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour now available to download from Google Play

Gameloft’s highly anticipated first-person shooter, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, is now available to download through Google Play after making its debut last Thursday on iOS. The new title marks the fourth installment in the studio’s Modern Combat franchise, which has undoubtedly become the Call of Duty of mobile.

Touting an all-new tactical movement system, Gameloft is declaring Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour “the most memorable action shooter ever.” Of course, the premise of the game hasn’t changed, remaining true to its terrorist-killing origins. What’s more is that the new game is the first from Gameloft powered by the powerful Havok Engine, which is said to produce “amazing ragdoll effects and the most realistic feeling vehicles ever.” Last but not least, the multiplayer mode has been completely overhauled, now offering over 20,000 different weapon arrangements and an all-new ranking system to keep track of your progress.

The game is available for $6.99 via the source link below. I just downloaded my copy. How about you?

Gameloft’s 2013 game lineup leaked?

Good news for Gameloft fans or gaming fans in general. Gameloft, one of the most well-known game developer/publishers, had its 2013 game lineup leaked last night. While we can get a pretty good idea without the list of what to expect based on their history, this leak seems all but definitive. Among the games slated for a 2013 release are: A new Asphalt game, a new Dungeon Hunter title, a new Gangstar title, and a new Order & Chaos game. Additionally we’ll see another Brothers in Arms game, Modern Combat 5, and a totally different FPS game will be introduced. Interestingly, a N.O.V.A. title wasn’t listed but perhaps the ‘new’ FPS mentioned will take its place, or will it possibly be a spin-off? Regardless, the gaming front looks nice for 2013 from Gameloft. Now, if we can only get an update on the availability of Modern Combat 4 on the Play Store…
