Mortal Combat 5: Blackout, released in 2014 for users of Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 and the older Windows Phone 8 smartphones, has now got an update that brings customisable controls which add more intuitiveness into the game as a whole.

Modern Combat 5 is a premium game, costs $4, and is currently available for download from the Windows Phone Store.

Highlights of the game

On paper, Modern Combat 5: Blackout should give users obsessed with first person shooting games, lots to cheer about by virtue of multiple missions that players would be required to complete.
