Gameloft, the developers of Modern Combat 5, have decided to push their Modern Combat 5 game to a free-to-play pricing model. The price of the app dropped today, from $3.99 to free. For those of you who have already purchased the game, no need to worry, Gameloft has decided to implement an “energy system” (you know, those annoying systems where you can play 5 times, and then have to wait 20 minutes to play again). However, if you’d already purchased the game, you will get unlimited energy. Not only this, but you’ll also get a special “veteran kill-sign”, as well as 200 in-game credits. Still, many players will still probably be irked by the fact that the game is now completely free (with IAPs), but at least they’ll be slightly compensated.
Here’s what’s new in version 1.2.0:
Hit the deck! A barrage of new features is heading right for Modern Combat 5 in this exciting new update.
NEW CLASS REPORTING FOR DUTY!
