Blitz Brigade also launches on Windows 8, opening up the action on the big screen

Blitz Brigade was covered only yesterday for Windows Phone and today we're back with the Windows 8 version. If you own a Windows tablet (or have a gaming rig built) it's possible to download the Gameloft title from the Windows Store. Just like the Windows Phone version, Blitz Brigade is an online first-person shooter that shares similarities with the likes of Team Fortress and Unreal Tournament.

Blitz Brigade

Blitz Brigade also includes vehicles, sporting three different terror on wheels to select from. If you're mad about weaponry in such games, there are over 100 weapons to choose from to really dig deep and personalize how your character performs on the battlefield. Then you have the arena-style taunting and kill phrases to keep you amused when blowing heads off. An added bonus is the voice chat for enhanced teamplay. It's a neat title we're sure many gamers will enjoy.

Let us know how you find the game in the comments.

  • Man my head is spinning from all of these official new apps!! Lol
  • Please, don't switch to IOS or Android, your head won't stop
  • How can you have new apps when you have most of them ;)
  • He will be surprised of how many official apps are there in the store :\
  • Gameloft have a couple of games on both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. I wonder why they ain't making their games universal.
  • If the servers are the same, windows players will have the advantage...
  • Must be some kind of pipeline thing. They had these games in produciton and universal apps just popped up mid cycle?
  • Probably that.
  • Gameloft team fortfess
  • 99.2% ripoff
  • more like "Battlefield Heroes" One screenshot even looks very near as one BF Heroes have and the trailer.
  • Cool!!! Now that I cant play it on my phone, at least I can enjoy it on my PC :D
  • Wow,6 games in a week. Gameloft on a roll.
  • Let's hope other companies learn from gameloft
  • I dunno. I respect Gameloft for porting so much stuff to WP/Windows. But they almost always release games and then basically abandon them from day one. The real news is when Gameloft actually releases an update for one of their games to fix bugs/etc.
  • Things have changed this year. They've updated Asphalt 8 and Minion Rush several times already.
  • I hope like games like sunset overdrive can come to mobile platform specially for windows phone
  • Im loving it :D
  • Chinese players are experiencing connection error and are unable to register, Gameloft, please patch this!
  • How about xbox one?
  • Time to put my mouse skill to work. I hope it's cross platform with WP. The control is very bad on phone.
  • So many articles and no one mentions how is the dang thing played. keyboard, touch, Xbox Controller?
  • It just came out...what do you want, a full review? None of us have even had time to download it, let alone play it.
  • Playing it on my Win 8 not touch, it's really fun
    but with horrible connection (my internet isn't the problem)
  • No idea. All I have figured out is how to run around and get shot using the phone version. I am a magnet for other players bullets. Looking forward to trying this on the Surface Pro later.
  • LOL... you are not the magnet... it's because in this game had auto-aim setting... Its hard to aim using phone..
  • I hope that they update there promo videos to show that you can get it for Windows and Windows Phone instead of just The App store and Play Store.. That shit is really annoying,.
  • Very nice game ;)
  • Dont know what i'm doing wrong... but i can't play this game... it keeps asking me for a name and no matter what i enter, doesn't allow me to go further. When i try to rate the game it tells me that i need to rate it with the account i used to install it... but i am using that account!!!  looking into 'my apps', it is not there either! Anyone had that experience? Using Windows 8.1
  • Downloading ! Been waiting for Windows 8 version after yesterday's announcement for Windows Phone. Love playing in big screen :D
  • Controls: (Took Ages to work Out) LMB Shoot Mouse Wheel: Change Weapon/Fly In Helicopter F: Get In Vehicle V: Get Out Of Vehicle Ctrl: Turn Around Esc: Pause C: Change to Gunner In Jeep   Hope This Helps!
  • Thank you!  
  • How do you switch weapons(on a windows laptop)?
  • Anyone can give full key mapping for window 8 PC? I was trying to fly the helicoptor but I couldn't fly up, only fly forward. My pc isn't touchscreen
