Blitz Brigade: it’s like Team Fortress 2 for Android, coming soon

Gameloft Blitz Brigade

Gameloft has just released a trailer for Blitz Brigade, and if you ever played Team Fortress 2 or Battlefield Heroes 2, you’ll find yourself right at home.

So far, we know few details about the upcoming game, besides the fact that it will be a “team-based FPS” that will let you choose from one of the “five highly-skilled and totally badass classes”.

Here’s the trailer:

Let’s get the obvious out of the way – Gameloft has no issues whatsoever in liberally “borrowing” from popular game francizes, most times from the PC and console platforms. One helpful YouTube commenter going by the handle of pikohanjackhammer has summarized Gameloft’s track record like this:

  • Gangstar = Grand Theft Auto
  • Heroes of Sparta = God of War
  • 9mm = Max Payne
  • Six-Guns = Red Dead Redemption
  • Eternal Legacy = Final Fantasy
  • Backstab = Assassin’s Creed (They ran out of their ideas and had to start ripping off their own games)
  • Zombie Infection = Resident Evil

Come to think about it, we could add a few titles to that list. Copycats or not, Gameloft is one of the most prolific developers for Android, and we are all behind having good games waiting for us in the Play Store.

Blitz Brigade will be available “soon” for Android and iOS devices. We’ll keep you posted!

    N.o.v.a. = crysis and little bit halo
    Modern combat = COD and battlefield
    Gameloft is a total copycat but their games are awesome so I don’t care! :)

    • but most of their free requires lots of in-app purchase to play nicely.
      Downloaded real football , needed in-app purchase.. and in free mode you can only play 2 games in 24hr. I head their paid games also have similar issue.

        It’s not an issue in paid games, but yes it’s annoying that they do the same annoying thing as Glu Mobile always does which is too much IAPs needed for playing in “free” games

    Asphalt = Burnout. The list goes on, but since they do a good job of “porting” games to Android, I don’t mind. What I do mind is that they also copy EA in terms of business model, selling buggy games expensive, and then trying to force you to plunge out even more on a ton of IAPs :@ The only thing that’s better is their customer service, which actually managed to help me on the first try without me having to do whatever I can to get listened to, kudos to that :)
