Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, the latest installment in Gameloft’s successful game franchise, is getting closer and closer to release, and Gameloft wants to make sure that gamers stay excited. To ensure that they do, the game’s latest developer diary is showing off new improvements to multiplayer.

The multiplayer experience for Modern Combat 4 has been overhauled, including new game modes. “Barebones” hearkens back to the simpler times of Modern Combat 2, while “Warfare” offers a more objective oriented sort of gameplay. Players fight for control of different zones, each of which offer different bonuses like additional ammo or continuous radar.

In addition to the multiplayer game modes, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour will feature an improved armory which will now show the game’s nearly 100 different weapon attachments in 3D. The game’s developers say that players will be able to customize their weapons to their individual play styles more than ever.

For a closer look at some of the features on the way, check out the video below:

While we don’t have an exact release date, the game is still supposed to be released sometime this fall. We haven’t heard any pricing details, but it’s fairly safe to assume that Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour will be similarly priced to previous installments in the series.

Has this latest developer diary got you excited for Modern Combat 4? Are you planning to pick it up when it’s released?
