Call of Duty: Mobile has been in beta for the past few weeks, and today, word got out about its official release date. Activision, in collaboration with Tencent, today announced that Call of Duty: Mobile will launch on October 1 in all countries except Mainland China, Vietnam, and Belgium. The game will deliver fan-favorite maps, modes, weapons and characters from across all games of the franchise, including the Modern Warfare® and Black Ops series. Call of Duty: Mobile will be free-to-play on Android and iOS devices.
The game will include some of Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire, Black Ops maps like Nuketown and Hijacked, and many more. It will also launch with a host of Multiplayer modes and Battle Royale, with more modes and content, time-limited events and playlists to be added regularly. There is a ranking system which lets players unlock rewards that include classic Call of Duty characters such as John “Soap” MacTavish and Simon “Ghost” Riley from the Modern Warfare series, as well as Alex Mason from the Black Ops series. Weapons, scorestreaks and additional gear for equipping and customizing load-outs are also at players’ fingertips for the ultimate Call of Duty experience.
Battle Royale mode will include up to 100 combatants who will have to fight for survival in a map designed exclusively for the mobile title featuring locations from across the Call of Duty franchise in solos, duos or four-person teams. Players can battle across land, sea, and air with vehicles including an ATV, helicopter, and tactical raft while finding and equipping gear and weapons that span the series. Players can sign up and pre-register for Call of Duty: Mobile and find the latest intel at the official website.
Will Call of Duty: Mobile be the one that dethrones PUBG Mobile? Probably not. The game will certainly find takers in hardcore fans of the franchise and has the advantage of being around for many years.
