Gameloft might be bringing an offline mode to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but that doesn’t mean the developer-publisher’s long-anticipated Modern Combat 5: Blackout is going to offer an offline mode for iOS device owners.
Instead, according to a Gameloft representative, the app’s “Unified Progression system” is going to require that gamers have an online connection (either Wi-Fi or cellular) while playing the app.
The news came in a post added to the TouchArcade forums by Gameloft, which noted: “We are still planning on launching the game with the online requirement due to the Unified Progression system.” It had been suggested that Modern Combat 5 might indeed abandon its online requiremenet since The Amazing Spider-Man 2, another online-only Gameloft title, is getting an offline mode “soon.”
Given the huge multiplayer emphasis Modern Combat 5 is said to have, this is sensible – even if the move will lock gamers out from being able to enjoy Modern Combat 5 at any time, from any place.
We heard the month before that the app would be free of in-app purchases (IAPs), but that it won’t feature Twitch streaming or MFi (Made for iPhone) controller support.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EGTwb9RwAM
