Gameloft’s Modern Combat: Sandstorm blasts into App Store

About a month ago, we had posted the teaser trailer for the eagerly awaited Modern Combat: Sandstorm by Gameloft. The video surprised a lot of folks with just how good games on the iDevice can look and makes us wonder if developers have already pushed the iPlatform to its limits in the visuals department (lets hope not). Well the wait is over for all you FPS and Call of Duty 4 fans;  Modern Combat is now finally out at the App Store.

Modern Combat: Sandstorm, Gameloft’s new action-thriller will plunge you into the heart of modern war. Assigned to Mission Sandstorm, your duty is to locate and annihilate a new terrorist cell setting up shop and recruiting foreign insurgents in a remote desert hot spot. This jarring first person shooter will equip you with the most sophisticated and powerful modern day weapons.

You never want to judge a book by its cover, but damn, Modern Combat is looking like a must have FPS for the iPhone/iPod Touch. If blasting terrorists to bits is your cup of tea (on the iDevice no less), you probably don’t want to miss out on Gameloft’s latest App Store offering. More info including a sweet gameplay trailer after the jump.
