Gameloft and MediaTek have announced that the hotly anticipated Modern Combat 5 will be optimised on the new MT6592 octa-core smartphone chip, for Android smartphones. Modern Combat 5 will be available for iOS devices also when it launched next year.
The MT6592, MediaTek’s latest innovation, is the first true octa-core processor in the world, and Gameloft’s Modern Combat 5, will be the first videogame optimised for the new chip. As mobile gaming moves forward, offering highly detailed and realistic gameplay, the need for a higher performance chipset is required. Specific features of the new Modern Combat 5 include definition levels not seen before, especially in the technically difficult mediums of water distortion effects, reflections and shadowing.
Modern Combat 5 is a fast-moving, visually exciting action videogame played across various terrains and conditions. MT6592 allows for continuous scrolling in high-definition (HD) with attention to detail from soft particle display to enhanced depth of field to create a more immersive experience.
“We’re thrilled to continue our collaboration with MediaTek,” said Ludovic Blondel, Vice President OEM at Gameloft. “This new octa-core system on a chip is focused on high performance and is one of the best mobile technologies on today’s market. We are delighted to showcase this innovative, high-end technology in Modern Combat 5, one of our most awaited games of 2014.”
“With the rapid development of mobile Internet applications and services, mobile gaming has become one of the leading value-added services for our customers and the best medium to experience the power of True Octa-Core with our MT6592 chip,” said Jeffrey Ju, General Manager of MediaTek Smartphone Business Unit. “Our partnership with Gameloft on Modern Combat 5 is a major breakthrough for the industry and gaming community, as we empower the ultimate gaming experience that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.”
Modern Combat 5 will be available on all smartphone models equipped with the MT6592 chip, and will be available for download from the Google Play Store in early 2014. An iOS version is also in the works and will launch at an unspecified date in 2014. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Modern Combat 5.
