Gameloft launches Blitz Brigade sequel 'Rival Tactics' on Android

The current state of mobile gaming isn't to everyone's liking, and if you're one of those people you should move along now. The new Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics from Gameloft has all the makings of a modern mobile game from the in-app purchases to the screaming guy app icon. This is, of course, a followup to the original Blitz Brigade, but it's a very different kind of game.

Gangstar New Orleans OpenWorld is celebrating Mardi Gras a little late with its official release

You have to love Gameloft's persistence. This is a company that seems to exist solely to bring generic copies of popular games to mobile. With their new game, Gangstar New Orleans Open it blatantly appears to fill the shoes of the wildly more popular Grand Theft Auto franchise. Despite GTA already having numerous releases on Android, Gameloft is still going to try and compete in the market with their inevitably half-hearted attempt.

Gameloft And Disney Team Up For The Magical Park-Building Game 'Disney Magic Kingdoms', Out Now

For many young kids, Disneyland is a dream come true. And if they're old enough to dream of going on Disney rides, they're probably also old enough to know that Gameloft is a game developer to approach with caution. Some games are good. Others are ripe with in-app purchases. And the ones that are good tend to have IAPs too.

French Media Company Vivendi Attempts Hostile Takeover Of Prolific Mobile Publisher Gameloft

Gameloft has been one of the most consistent (if not one of the most respected) game developers since the beginning of the mobile gaming boom, though the company began on consoles. Vivendi, an enormous French media empire with interests in music, movies, video games, and pretty much every other entertainment industry, is attempting a hostile stock takeover of Gameloft, according to Bloomberg. The larger company has already purchased over 30% of Gameloft's stock, and is now offering 6 euros a share for the remaining amount.

Gameloft began humbly, founded in Paris by former executives of Ubisoft. Gameloft was one of the only companies that made high-end games for the old iOS and Windows Mobile platforms.

Gameloft's Order & Chaos 2 Is An Open World MMORPG Where You Can Go Anywhere, Do Anything, And Pay Any Amount Of Money With In-App Purchases

Gameloft has been developing mobile games for a long time, and it's kind of got the formula down. The latest release from the developer is Order & Chaos 2: Redemption, which is an open world MMORPG that bears a striking resemblance to World of Warcraft. This isn't WoW, though. It's on Android and contains plenty of in-app purchases. What? That's the formula. I never said you'd like it.

Gameloft To Make Modern Combat 5 Free-To-Play In Next Update

Modern Combat 5's release was hardly unexpected. After all, it's a sequel in one of the most popular franchises on Google Play. Nevertheless, it was a surprise to see the Gameloft title launch without a single in-app purchase in sight. In exchange, the publisher priced it at $7. Reasonable.

Ryan put the game through its paces, and while it wasn't without its caveats, it easily provided enough content to justify the price tag.

Now Gameloft is making the game free-to-play. The update is already available on iOS, and it's slated to hit Android soon.

This update makes Modern Combat 5 available for free to millions of new players, and adds controller support, more weapons, a new class and more.
