Gameloft made the Modern Combat 5: Blackout for iOS platform free last week, now the game for Android is available for free. The new spring update adds controller support, more weapons, a new class and more. Those who had purchased the game earlier will get Veteran status, with unlimited energy and 200 credits. The switch to free-to-play means the game will have a longer lifetime, so we can invest more in the long-term update plan and in the servers which need to support a significantly larger player base, said Valeriu Ispir, Product Manager, Gameloft.
