War never changes

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD released on iPad

Prefer your shooters grossly over-sized? Gameloft’s epic globe-trotting war sim Modern Combat 2 is now available on iPad.

The game takes you on an all expenses paid trip of the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and South America as you gun down the region’s baddest baddies in the name of global conflict. You get to wrangle with 15 real-world weapons, which can be kitted out with accessories, on 12 battlefields.

Once you’ve completed the game’s hefty single-player campaign, you can head online for competitive five-on-five multiplayer combat.

There are four modes, including Defuse the Bomb and Capture the Flag, as well as an extensive 72 rank upgrade system, allowing you to unlock new weapons and reward tags as you beat down noobs.

The graphics have been given a slight makeover to fit the 10-inch display, but otherwise the game remains relatively unscathed in its transition from pint-size portable to tablet.

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is available to download right now on iPad for £5.99 / $9.99 / €7.99.
