Gameloft and MediaTek are teaming up on Modern Combat 5, optimizing the game on the semi-conductor’s new MT6592 octa-core smartphone chip for Android.

What does this mean for gamers?

According to Gameloft, the new chip means high-definition graphics with more focus and attention to detail, especially when it comes to effects in water distortion, shadowing, and reflections. The MT6592 chip also allows for continuous scrolling with enhanced depth of field in order to create a more immersive battleground

“With the rapid development of mobile Internet applications and services, mobile gaming has become one of the leading value-added services for our customers and the best medium to experience the power of true octa-core with our MT6592 chip,” said Jeffrey Ju, General Manager of MediaTek smartphone business unit. “Our partnership with Gameloft on Modern Combat 5 is a major breakthrough for the industry and gaming community, as we empower the ultimate gaming experience that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.”

Added Ludovic Blondel, Vice President OEM at Gameloft: “This new octa-core system on a chip is focused on high performance and is one of the best mobile technologies on today’s market. We are delighted to showcase this innovative, high-end technology in Modern Combat 5, one of our most awaited games of 2014.”

Modern Combat 5 will be available for download from the Google Play Store in early 2014.
