Gameloft's Team Fortress-style Blitz Brigade has just received a great update. Now, fans of the free universal application can enjoy playing through a brand new "capture the flag" multiplayer mode, while a new map - Cathedral - is also available to access in Domination, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag games. Offering users more ways "to fight, frag, and be merry," Gameloft has also included a selection of new weapons in Blitz Brigade 1.1.0. Finally, limited-time tournaments have also been added in the updated app, which allow gamers to "dominate the battlefield and win valuable prizes (not to mention bragging rights)!" The changes are outlined in Blitz Brigade's release notes:
If you're not familiar with Blitz Brigade, here's how we introduced the application in our original article:
- NEW MULTIPLAYER MODE: Snag your foe’s flag and bring it to your team’s base in Capture the Flag.
- NEW MULTIPLAYER MAP: Raise some hell in the Cathedral, now available for Domination, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag modes. The mix of long- and close-range combat will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
- NEW WEAPONS: More deadly weapons for each class.
- LIMITED-TIME TOURNAMENTS: Dominate the battlefield and win valuable prizes (not to mention bragging rights)!
Essentially a class-based first-person shooter, Blitz Brigade dares you to embody one of five classes and team up with other players online to gun down your enemies. The five classes are Soldier, Gunner, Medic, Sniper, and Stealth. Be one of those and engage in badass battles with up to 12 players in the dauntingly named Domination and Deathmatch modes. As you do, you can use three different vehicles along with more than a hundred class-specific weapons. Blitz Brigade also features unique taunts and kill phrases for each character as well as support for voice chat within teams.It's a fun, exciting app not dissimilar to id Software's Team Fortress. As mentioned, Blitz Brigade can be downloaded in the App Store free of charge, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
