Gameloft isn’t a name which resonates with console gamers, and rightfully so. Despite releasing titles such as Prince of Persia Classic and Earthworm Jim on PSN and XBLA, the French publisher/developer is best known for their gallery of games available for iOS (Assassin’s Creed, N.O.V.A.)
Therefore it may come as a surprise to some that Gameloft are creating an instalment of their Modern Combat series to compete with the likes of Bad Company and Call of Duty, exclusively for the PlayStation Network. Domination launches as part of next week’s PSN store update and Gameloft are inviting you to “rediscover what made online shooters such a blast.”
Here is what the game has to offer:
- Six different online game modes
- Matches hosting up to 16 players
- Thirteen available weapons
- Five individual Maps
- Full PlayStation Move Support
- “Genuine tactics and training”
- 72 attainable ranks
Though it may sound no different to what is already out there, Modern Combat: Domination is launching for a very moderate price of $8, with there also being prospects of a playable demo and PlayStation Plus discount. Could this pint-size pretender to the Call of Duty throne be a sleeper arcade hit or will it fail to live up to the high expectation Gameloft have granted it?
We’ll find out next week.
