Gameloft has started teasing a new team-based first-person shooter, called Blitz Brigade, that looks like it may just be a hybrid clone of Team Fortress 2 and Battlefield Heroes. The YouTube video embedded above leaves a lot to be desired, as it doesn’t show any gameplay, however, it does mention that it’s coming soon to Android smartphones & tablets, the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Judging by the preview, we should expect characters getting hit by shovels, snipers shooting opponents in the face, and plenty of rocket launcher action. The description for the trailer gives us slightly more insight: “Become one of five highly-skilled and totally badass classes and team up with other players to pound your enemies into the dirt and call them mean names. Lock ‘n load for team-based FPS mayhem!”
Blitz Brigade will be released for free and online multiplayer gameplay is a given. Gameloft typically starts hyping up its new games a few weeks prior to release, so we’re thinking it will be available by mid-February. We’ll be sure to let you know when the game hits Google Play and iTunes.
Note: It’s possible Gameloft renamed “War Boys” to Blitz Brigade after their 2013 lineup leaked last month.
