Modern Combat 3 now available on Android Market for $6.99

modern-combat-3-android

Gameloft’s highly anticipated first-person shooter Modern Combat 3 has finally hit the Android Market for $6.99. North Korea, Pakistan and Russia have all teamed up to launch a terrorist attack on the United States, and it’s your job as Corporal James Walker to lead your special forces into enemy territory and stop them.

Android gaming fans familiar with the prequels will know they contained a lot of corridor action, but Modern Combat 3 will be all about large scale war. The game producer describes MC3: Fallen Nation as delivering “super large scale fights, something that hasn’t been done on smartphones. We wanted to make a point that smartphone gaming can be as huge and awesome as on any other home console.”

The solo campaigns will include 13 missions with locations from Los Angeles to Pakistan and the multiplayer mode will greatly enhance the replay value. Expanded multiplayer features include cross-platform battles, up to 12 players, 6 maps and 6 different modes. The developers are so confident with their multiplayer options that they said MC3 includes “everything that the hardcore first person shooter gamer is looking for.”

Gameloft has a strong track record as one of the best Android game developers, so I had no problem handing them $6.99 for Modern Combat 3. It requires at least 1.37 GB of free storage space, so I’m still waiting for it to install, but it looks like a wide range of dual-core devices are supported, including the newly released Galaxy Nexus.

Those wishing to save a few bucks should also be able to grab the game by visiting www.gameloft.com on their mobile device. Gameloft normally prices their new titles at $4.99, but their online store has always frustrated me, and I’m ok with giving Google that extra $2.

Check out the trailer below and then go download this game if your device is supported.

    I have to check this one out, looks great and would even better on a Prime

    • ZRod

      I know right?! Looking forward to what 2012 will bring in advancements with Android games.

    • BiGMERF

      Taylor have you encountered in game purchasing requests? other are saying there are to many for the 6.99 price tag.

      • Shadowlore

        Saw a couple friends really having a fit about this, this morning. WTH is the point of buying a game with money, if you’re going to have to pay for more in-app-purchases to do a whole lot.

        I’ve always been a supporter of IAP’s if the game is initially free.. but Gameloft is starting to grab onto this model a bit too often for my liking.

        • AndroidJunkie

          Gameloft can’t come up with a winning game concept of their own. EVERY original title they ever made is a total rip off of something else. This series being an obviously rip off of the modern warfare series. ..And now they’re planning on ripping off their customers?

          The worst games are the ‘most grossing’. ..Biggest wastes of time and money. Anyone who actually pays to play these games are fools and deserve to lose their money.

          • Jon Garrett

            blackdroid = gameloft rip off problem solve.

          • YMS123

            True they copy games- but that’s a good thing, who doesn’t want Modern Warfare, or something extremely similar, on their phone? and if no one else is making it, it might as well be Gameloft

          • Lux143

            um…you are so wrong…get over the copying crap…honestly…get over it. the games are NOT halo…mw3…uncharted…they just look like em. thats it.
            The games are well done, the best out there and worth buying more so then 95% of the other games out there…

      • Jon Garrett

        yep., you buy the game for $7 and in-game they want more money !! even worse than Lets Golf 3 which was also asking for up to $200 !!!

        WTF would pay $200 for a mobile phone game? Bill ‘Fking’ Gates wouldn’t pay $200 for a mobile phone game and why should we?

    • Samuel Hurd, professional black drugs dealer

      Thats a bargain! Drugs are much more expensive…

    • http://www.infotainmentempire.com pekosROB

      If only we knew when the Prime would ship. Now B&H Photo are saying approximate arrival January! What the crap?

    • AndroidJunkie

      what’s in the video is the extent of the graphics. the prime won’t magically enhance details that aren’t designed in the game. the only thing you can hope is that the prime runs the game flawlessly.

    • ruvort

      agreed

  • jamal adam

    This would go well with that Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.

  • stenzor

    This looks amazing, but incompatible with SGS2? :(

    • tatiG

      all these games are available for SG2 except you have to buy them through gameloft. sucks.

      • stenzor

        oh ok, thanks for the tip!

        • Anthony E

          you can also try checking Samsungs app store. I know some games, like asphalt are free on there. Now loading that Samsung app store website… bring a tent, a blanket, and some food; that site is slooooooooooooooow.

    • Jon Garrett

      dude,

      its 100% compatible with the Galaxy S II. I have the game installed and running with no problems at all.

  • http://youtube.com/user/jawckamoe Marcus

    Holy carp that’s kinda expensive. But I think a game like that will be worth it. I’ve always liked the games that Gameloft has developed, and this one seems awesome. :)

  • http://www.jaxidian.org/update/ jaxidian

    This looks like one hella cool game! I hope it plays nicely! We’re really starting to get some good games on our Android devices!

  • AsakuraZero

    the end of the article explained me why it was kinda expensive, anyway looks good enough to try it~

  • erikiksaz

    They juuuuuuusttt had to miss the $0.10 deal, didn’t they? Hah, jk.

    • Jon Garrett

      Backstab was part of the .10 deal.

  • staryoshi

    Once my phone gets ICS and I can use a PS3 controller natively I’ll be more interested in shooters on Android. It looks sharp for a mobile game, though.

    • Jon Garrett

      you don’t need ICS to use a PS3 controller on your Android (tablet)

  • fatspirit

    So Russia is still The Bad Country? (:

  • pritams

    Awesome game..but the link in video took me to apple site which I hate to visit…

  • fatspirit

    “This game requires at least 1.37 GB of free storage space in order to install.” – ouch.

    • ZRod

      Thus another reason for me to get my 64 GB TP I have on preorder. Games will get larger as you can obviously see.

      • YMS123

        For a second there I was like ” 64gb TouchPad, seriously!? “, enjoy your tablet, this game is probably freaking amazing on it

  • http://genesischess.com/ MJM128

    This game would work great on my tab 10.1 with a bluetooth controller!

  • Spikedogg1

    I need a better And Me Score, boost me baby

    • AndroidJunkie

      that didn’t seem to work

      • Anthony E

        I’ll give him a boost and take him to -8 instead of -9. You get one too, since his failure and your comment made me laugh.

  • WallaceD

    Holy crap that trailer looks fantastic. 1.37 gigs, indeed.

  • ciabo18

    works very good on my Nexus s

  • Hall Lo

    Looks promising :) Hopefully it will do well on dual core phones!

  • ZRod

    Another fps… yay… *sarcasm* Again, give us some more genre variety please, a lot of these newer games are all too similar.

  • Gazos

    Holly hell this looks awesome!!!

    I do agree with the above comment though the market is saturated with FPS.

    Bring us the original Command and Conquer or how about Dungeon Keeper!!!!

    • Gazos

      Kings Bounty, Final Fantasy VII, . . . the list goes on I know its rehashing old games but it would still be good to see a HD effect on them with true touch screen.

      • ZRod

        Command and Conquer would be great. Ya those old games are great, I have dozens of them. They don’t take advantage of modern hardware though, I don’t want just old games though, that is like using a PSP to play PS1 games or a DS to play GBC games.
        I am just sick that they only cater to one market.

        • Gazos

          So what sort of games would you go for on a tablet or mobile?

          A professor Layton style game would be good

  • twugd

    Another game hits the Android Market. Even though it’s expensive, it’s a good sign of things to come. More and more developers are paying serious attention to Android, leading to better apps, better games, better everything.
    Although, I fear pricing games a bit higher may set a standard where everyone prices games higher and higher.

  • Rob Vermeij

    If this is like the real PC COD MW3 and thus a big cash cow, I skip it XD When does Battlefield 3 can run on my mobile?

  • Benji Glazier

    gta 3, modern combat 3, shine runner, race of champions..wow android gaming has shaped up in the past year.

  • CJ LaFleur

    Any coincidencr the transformer prime came out today as well?

  • Max Steel

    FPS gaming on a touchscreen device just ain’t as fun and nowhere near the same feedback as say a console or PC or at least a handheld with physical buttons.

    • dVyper

      Yep, tis way to cumbersome to control. Though I have seen one game which handles it well. I don’t remember the name but it borrowed heavily from Gears of Wars and was enjoyable.

      • Kraig

        It was Shadowgun, another awesome game.

  • Zhi Hao

    Must resist urge to buy more Android games…

  • Diaeko

    dammmnnn thats a hell of a game

  • matt

    I wish it showed up in the market on my samsung vibrant.

  • azswift

    Am I the only one comparing the price to console games? It’s about 10% of the price of a new console game. How long will it take to beat this compared to an Xbox shooter?

  • kzlife

    Does look like cod.. but that’s really nice :D Will get it when I get home ^^

  • JarlSX

    would be great if i could play this game on my transformer using a mouse and the keyboard

  • zyphbear

    This looks great for a Mobile Device game, I may have to try it once I get a new device.

  • Louis A

    Siweeeeet, sure getting it!

  • Nolan

    almost as good as a red ryder bb gun

  • Thomas Biard

    I need something Dual Core before I can even consider buying this game. I like the slow evolution of games that are being released. Tegra 3 should run this pretty pretty!

  • Stella

    I’m not a heavy gamer and this looks cool!

  • ramenchef

    This looks pretty good. I’ll give it a spin later.

  • Ashish Raj

    See.. this is the reason I need a Tegra device… comon AndroidandMe, pick my name in one of ur giveaways!!!

    • Adryan maldonado

      Sigh if only it was as easy as just picking someone but then that wouldnt be fair to the thousands of commenters on the contest page. Just keep entering. you never know

  • Lux143

    I now officially HATE gameloft. I am done with them and personally think this kind of crap should be illegal.
    You PAY FOR THE F*****G GAME AND YOU STILL HAVE A STORE SHOVED IN YOUR FACE!
    Gameloft…I honestly hope you go bankrupt.

    • ndub21

      I understand the hatred, but does it interfere with the game at all? If it’s a really good game I would be ok dealing with that. Obviously I am going to buy the games through the Android Market though.

  • Adryan maldonado

    Wow i would like to buy this game. But @Lux143 i understand why you hate but at the same time as long as it doesnt prevent me from playing multiplayer or completing the game it doesnt bother me to bad

  • dafi81

    on a tablet maybe, on a phone absolute not

  • Marc’us H.

    I’m not a fan of FPS on phones, but then again this combines two of my favorite console FPS games … might check it out.

  • Martjn2

    Is it even possible to run that kind of high-graphics game on something smaller than a ps3 :O Soon mobile gaming will be the only gaming…

  • ndub21

    Looks pretty awesome. I may have to restrain myself from buying this one though due to the number of games I have bought recently. I have quite a few I have yet to even open.

  • HoLfElDeR

    awwwwwww my device isnt suported :(

  • honourbound68

    my htc flyer is in the mail.. anyone know if this’ll work on it??

  • Fabio R

    I can say just that this game is great

  • NotRelevent

    Yea this game is not supported on my Nexus. Which sucks.

    • KID ANDROID

      NOT SUPPORTED ON NEXUS WHAT, WHICH NEXUS ? IF YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE NEXUS S IT IS SUPPORTED FOR SURE. THIS GAME IS SICK. BEST I’VE PLAYED ON ANDROID. LOOKS AND WORKS FLAWLESSLY ON MY ACER ICONIA A500.. *DOES ANYBODY KNOW THE KEY MAP TO INPUT IN APP USB/BT JOYSTICK? I TRYING TO USE DUAL SHOCK 3 CONTROLLER. PLEASE IT WOULD MAKE THIS GAME ONE OF THE BEST I’VE EVER PLAYED PERIOD. -KID ANDROID

  • Crickerman

    Not available for my Samsung vibrant :-( . Sucks since the iOS version works on the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4 had inferior hardware to mine.. Android still gets the lower end of the stick as a gaming platform,i Hope that improves eventually.

  • lokidokie

    Sold

  • donger

    1.37gb of free space wow. what other games require that amount of space?

  • blaseb

    I want to try this on a tablet!

  • jefflarkin

    This is why I want a tegra-based set top box with the android market.

  • humidity

    Looks great!

  • Michael Ian

    Gameloft is a joke when it comes to compability. I understand Android has a huge number of device under its belt, but to to render devices that handle it incompatible is a joke. I can’t believe they would leave this out for the transformer. Shame on you!

  • Modern Combat 3 apk

    It takes a while to load on my HTC Thunderbolt, but it’s a great FPS for mobile devices (if not the best — so far).

  • KID ANDROID

    ** DOES ANYBODY KNOW THE KEY MAP TO THIS GAME TO INPUT IN APP USB /BT JOYSTICK, IM DYING TO PLAY THIS WITH MY DUAL SHOCK 3 CONTROLLER I JUST PURCHASED.
