[Update]: Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is now available in the Google Play Store


[Update]: It looks like the game has been pulled from the Google Play Store, likely due to some technical difficulties. Be sure to keep an eye on the post at this link for the latest as we get word from Gameloft regarding this issue.

After launching last Thursday on iOS, Android users everywhere can finally get in on some fresh FPS action with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. As the name suggests, MC4 is the fourth installment in Gameloft’s Modern Combat franchise, a game closely resembling console favorites like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This is what Gameloft does and sometimes, they do it well.

The name of the game is simple: shoot to kill. Only difference is this time around, Gameloft is allowing players to step in the shoes of the opposing forces, giving them the chance to experience both sides of the “cops vs robbers” story-driven gameplay. Gameloft has also raised the ante in terms of visuals, introducing all new special effects courtesy of the new Havoc Engine. Enemies can blown across battlefields with dynamic rag-doll physics, with objects that react to bullet fire, and vehicles that respond more realistically across terrain.

The best part for many will, no doubt, be the inclusion of a fully redesigned multiplayer mode. With online profiles, custom weapon configurations, and online leader boards — there’s a lot here to keep you playing long after the campaign has been completed.

For all the vocal freemium-haters out there, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is available right now in the Google Play Store for $7 straight up.

  1. Looks like crap compared to Nova and Dead Space

    1. or Shadowgun Deadzone. But it’s not that bad, ill reserve my 2c until i play it.

  2. Gameloft’s pass attempt on android doesn’t exactly inspire confidence….still cannot forgive them for the poor optimsation on asphalt 7 and especially NOVA 3….doesn’t make sense that my galaxy nexus can run NOVA 3 better than my nexus 7…..

  3. it won’t even load on my N7! keeps a download error. Refund button doesn’t work. I’m beyond pissed.

    1. Google’s 15 minute refund window is bullshit. Cause some games take 45 minutes to download!

  4. Seriously Chavez, this is getting sad. I can tell which articles you write just by how riddled with typos and grammar errors they are. Please, proof read before you post. We can all afford to wait the extra 5 minutes.
    Oh, and…cool game.

    1. My heart breaks for what you and all the other grammar Nazis have to go through every time you read an article with virtually invisible grammar mistakes. LOL

      1. You do know Chavez can reply on his own.

        1. I sure do. I was not replying for him or standing up for him in any way. I was simply expressing my deepest sentiments to all the whiney grammar Nazis.

      2. I believe we should start a fund. “Phandroids for Phonics”.

        “For only dollars a day, you can help these poor neglected grammar Nazis on fan sites realize his/her dream of a grammar utopia.”

    2. Call it being a “grammar Nazi” if you will… but I feel the same way. For me it is really annoying to read an “article” and find grammar mistake after grammar mistake. I honestly didn’t notice them so much in this article, but SO MANY of Chavez’s articles are riddled with them that it’s worth mentioning. He does himself and his site/employer a huge disservice by not proofing or having someone else take the five minutes to proof his work.

      1. Thanks Randy, that’s my point. He writes for a living, why not put the effort in to make it as good as possible. Call me a Nazi if that makes you feel better, but if I was a professional writer I would hate to be known for mistakes by my readers.

        1. I agree with you mike. I’ve pointed it out several times but I just get downvoted to oblivion. The community here is beyond terrible, I’ve moved on to Android Police to get my news and I suggest you do too.


  5. I’ll wait for the 0.99 cent deals Gameloft usually does before the holidays..

    1. My sentiments exactly.

  6. Only marginally related to this article but… do any of you use an external bluetooth game controller to play FPS on your Android device? I love FPS games on the Xbox and the PC before that, but I have not been able to enjoy them using the limited on-screen controls on the phone. I just can’t get into it. I keep eyeing the various bluetooth controllers but I know there are compatibility questions (I think). I really just want to play FPS games and am looking for the best controller that will work with my phone and the most/best games. I have an HTC Droid DNA.

    1. Randy, the MC series, NOVA and a number of other “AAA” Android games have gamepad support built in. I use my Xbox 360 wired controller on GTA III (and soon Vice City) as well as Dead Trigger, Shadowgun etc. You simply can’t beat an Xbox 360 controller for gamepad FPS control.

      1. “You simply can’t beat an Xbox 360 controller for gamepad FPS control”
        Unless, of course, you are using Sony’s Sixaxis controller :p

        1. Yep, exactly what I use.

  7. They already removed it from the Play Store. :/

  8. til I looked at the check for $7482, I did not believe that…my… cousin woz actualy making money in their spare time from there computar.. there sisters roommate had bean doing this for under sixteen months and recently repaid the depts on there home and bourt a new Lotus Esprit. read more at, FAB33.COM

  9. Are they promising not to convert this to freemium in the future? They have already done that to other titles, which makes me wary of giving them anything. I want to see some sort of promise about me getting a refund if they do that before I buy.
