The appropriately titled Call of Duty: Mobile draws familiar faces, guns, and modes from past games including Modern Warfare and Black Ops. "Play your way across multiple game modes as you engage in head-to-head battle through fan-favorite maps like Nuketown and Crash, all optimized for mobile". Players can not pre-register for the iOS version yet, but the website says the game is coming soon to the App Store.
Tencent, the developers behind this mobile CoD game, are bringing the "definitive, first person action" you expect from a Call of Duty game.
So the inclusion of a similar mode in Call of Duty: Mobile - even if it is simplified to match relatively low-power mobile tech - would be welcome news for fans. What are your thoughts on the free-to-play game?
Screenshots of a mobile iteration for Call of Duty had previously leaked. Weapons, scorestreaks, and loadouts all return - it's a full COD game on your phone.
"Together with the awesome team at Tencent, we're bringing together a collection of the most beloved maps, competitive modes, familiar characters and signature weapons from across this storied franchise into one epic experience for the first time on mobile". The game is co-developed with Tencent, the world's largest gaming company, and a veteran when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise.
There is no clarity on how the in-app purchases are going to work in Call of Duty Mobile. We imagine there will be some kind of Battle Pass too, but Activision is staying tight-lipped about that for now. It's much larger than a standard Call of Duty multiplayer map.
Activision has confirmed that the game will be free to play and will receive free updates, although like other rival mobile shooters PUBG Mobile and Fortnite paid skins could be made available.
