Modern Combat Versus Soft Launch FAQ

Wed Apr 12, 2017 9:48 pm
Hello everybody,

As of now, Modern Combat Versus has entered in its Soft Launch phase and it’s available to iOS, Android and PC players in the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia. Check out the following FAQ for answers to the most commonly asked questions.

1. What is a Soft Launch and why is the game not available to everyone?
Consider this soft launch as a “beta phase”, which will be rolled out to different countries over time.  Limiting the number of players allows our development team to easily monitor the performance of the game and apply quick improvements on a small scale. 

Ultimately, this Soft Launch period is the perfect opportunity for us to stress-test the game, correct known issues and make sure that Modern Combat Versus is at its best quality when it releases worldwide for everyone. 

2. How do I get access to the Soft Launch and download the game?
If you live in one of the countries listed above, simply head to the App Store, Google Play Store or Windows Store to download Modern Combat Versus and start playing. Check what devices will run the game on Question 13.

Please stay tuned for future announcements regarding the game’s availability in other countries and for other devices and platforms during Soft Launch.
    
3. Do I need a network connection to play the game?
Yes, an Internet connection is required at all times in order to play. For optimal performance please use WiFi.  

4. Is this game a sequel to Modern Combat 5: Blackout?
No, Modern Combat Versus is a brand new game. Our goal is to redefine the FPS genre on mobile while still retaining the franchise’s core values that players have come to love. Prepare to drop into a team-based multiplayer experience featuring fast-paced strategy combat and console quality graphics. 

5. What are the game’s main features during Soft Launch?
* 4 vs. 4 multiplayer battles featuring Zone Control, an objective-based game mode where teams fight for control of a central zone
* 12 specialized Agents to unlock and play as, each equipped with unique weapons and abilities
* 5 distinct maps featuring close-quarters and long-range warfare
* Competitive leagues and ranked seasons 

6. How many playable classes are in the game?
There are four defined Agent roles in Modern Combat Versus. The game’s 12 playable Agents are categorized as either an Attacker, a Defender, a Specialist or an Assassin. Each role has advantages and weaknesses against other roles, allowing for great synergies when playing as a team. 
    
7. How do I activate my Agent’s ability?
While playing, your Agent will automatically refill his/her ability bar with Core Charges over time. Each ability has a different cost of Core Charges. When you have accumulated enough of them you can simply tap your ability icon to activate it. 

If you die during battle your accumulated Core Charges are still retained when you respawn, even if you select a different Agent.

8. How can I obtain Agents?
Agents can be unlocked via the Agent Shop with either Korpens or Diamonds. 

9. How does the Agent upgrade system work?
After you unlock an Agent via the Agent Shop you will start acquiring Agent XP via PvP Crates and Free Crates. This Agent XP can be used to further upgrade your Agents. Each time you perform an upgrade the Agent’s health points and weapon damage increase. 

With upgraded Agents you’ll be able to reach higher leagues, which will match you against other players of similar skill.  

10. How do crates and the Black Market work?
Crates are rewarded at the end of a match or can be purchased with Diamonds from the Shop. Reward crates have timers before they can be opened. The contents include Agent XP and Versus Coins.

The Black Market provides special offers where you can buy Agent XP directly using Versus Coins, so be sure to check it daily for new selections!

11. Where are all the HUD buttons for aiming and shooting?
Modern Combat Versus prides itself on full-surface touch controls and a clutter-free HUD. 

Use the left side of the screen to move and the right side to aim.  Weapons shoot automatically when you are within range of an enemy, but accurate aiming is still required. 

In the Setting menu you can also enable a more traditional “shoot” button. You will find more customization options there, which we'll keep on expanding. Stay tuned!

12. How do I wall run or jump?
All maps contain at least two wall running areas which are signaled by a line of flashing arrows. To initiate the run, simply sprint at the wall and the action will be performed automatically. You can also automatically mantle over some short objects in the maps by sprinting towards them. 

To get more familiar with the controls enter the practice arena by selecting any Agent and tapping on the “Training” button.

13. Which devices will run Modern Combat Versus during Soft Launch?
iOS platform:
iPod Touch 6, iPhone 5 S, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 S, iPhone S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3 with Touch ID, iPad Mini 4, iPad Pro (12.9 inches) and iPad Pro (9.7 inches)

Our aim is to deliver the best mobile experience possible and therefore we are constantly bringing further optimization measures and also, new Android devices to the compatibility list

14. Can I connect my MCVS account to my Facebook profile?

15. How can I provide feedback to the development team?
