Gameloft brings the big guns in Blitz Brigade for some Windows Phone carnage

Blitz Brigade is a first-person shooter (FPS) from Gameloft, which has just been released for Windows Phone. It's not entirely new since Android and iOS already have the game, but it's an official title nonetheless. Essentially, players are tasked with selecting from a range of five classes to team up with other players from around the world and break some bones. Fan of Unreal Tournament, Team Fortress and other classic shooters? You'll want to check out Blitz Brigade on your Windows Phone.

A total of up to 12 players can battle it out at any given time with soldier, gunner, medic, sniper and stealth classes available to mix gameplay up and provide something to suit everyone's play style. There are multiple gametypes available too, including domination mode where you'll need to control the battlefied, as well as the usual deathmatch everyone knows and loves.

Providing Blitz Brigade an edge over other mobile FPS attempts is the inclusion of 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.

Don't worry if you're not a seasoned veteran in the realm of shooters as there are 120 unique missions to complete, which will aid you in mastering specialized skills for each class, as well as getting a taste for what the tanks and helicopters can do.
