Activision, in collaboration with Tencent, have announced that Call of Duty: Mobile will launch on October 1 in countries that support Google Play and the App Store. Unfortunately Mainland China and Vietnam aren’t included.
Call of Duty: Mobile will have fan favourite maps, modes weapons and characters from across the Call of Duty series including the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series. CoD: Mobile is being developed by Tencent’s Timi Studios and is free to play on Android and iOS.
“We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience on mobile with signature Call of Duty gameplay in the palms of your hands,” said Chris Plummer, VP, Mobile at Activision. “We are bringing together some of the best the franchise has to offer, including Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire, Black Ops maps like Nuketown and Hijacked, and many more, into one epic title. We’ve tested the game extensively in select territories and the feedback we’ve received has helped us refine the experience for October 1st.”
CoD: Mobile will launch with multiplayer and battle royal modes with more modes, content, time limited events and playlists to be added regularly.
Multiplayer will have classic modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy and Free-for-All and include some recognisable maps like Nuketown, Crash and Highjacked. As you rank up you can earn and unlock Call of Duty characters like John “Soap” McTavish and Simon “Ghost” Riley from the Modern Warfare series and Alex Mason from Black Ops. CoD: Mobile will also include weapons, score streaks and additional gear, for equipping and customizing loadouts.
The battle royale mode has been specifically built and tailored for CoD: Mobile and will have up to 100 players facing off against each other. You can do this solo, as part of a duo or as a team of 4. You will also be fighting across land, sea and air with vehicles including an ATV, helicopter, and tactical raft. You’ll also find weapons from throughout the CoD series scattered about the map.
