Gameloft has today launched Blitz Brigade, a new online multiplayer game, on Android and iOS. It’s a class-based first-person shooter that’s clearly heavily influenced by Valve’s Team Fortress titles, and it’s a whole lot of fun.
If you’re a fan of online FPS games — particularly Team Fortress — then go and download Blitz Brigade right now. I’ve had several rounds on it since I downloaded it this morning, and I’m already in love with it — it’s heaps of fun.
Blitz Brigade is another freemium title, so you can download and play it for free then buy in-app purchases for extra in-game cash — which you can then use to purchase additional weapons and equipment. But don’t let the freemium model put you off, because you can have plenty of fun without spending a penny.
There are five classes to choose from in the game, including solder, gunner, medic, sniper, and stealth — which you’ll use in 12-man multiplayer battles in Domination and Deathmatch game modes. There are more than 100 weapons to choose from, and three different vehicles.
There’s support for voice chat for those who wish to play in teams, and unique taunts and kill phrases that’ll help you rile your opponents.
There are some offline training missions you can play through as well — 120, in fact — which give you a great opportunity to get used to the classes, the weapons, and the vehicles.
