Activision announces Call of Duty

Wednesday, 20 Mar, 2019

Tencent have previously worked on the mobile version of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (the game that arguably started the Battle Royale phenomenon), so they have experience in delivering such modes to mobile players. Simply dubbed "Call of Duty Mobile", the new effort by Activision and Tencent Games appears to be the same as Call of Duty: Legends of War, a game that entered the alpha stage at the end of 2018. Fans can expect maps for Nuketown and Crash, modes, heavy artillery and characters from all the COD games - from Black Ops to Modern Warfare.

Team up with your friends in the online mode that redefined Call of Duty by introducing killstreaks, XP, Prestige and more in customisable, classic multiplayer modes. You can pre-register to download the game when it's out on Google Play and the App Store. You can pre-register here and opt-in to receive more information about it.

Stay tuned for the latest info on this new Call of Duty mobile game. What are your thoughts on the free-to-play game?

A beta version of the game will soon be made available in Europe, North and South America.

The official Call of Duty Mobile trailer promises intense gameplay, borrowing most of the CoD experience from its existing platforms. A promotional image (see above) was supposedly leaked before being quickly debunked, but one site in particular is claiming to know lots of details about the unconfirmed title.

The new mobile game was developed alongside Chinese company Tencent, according to Activision, particularly its Timi studio behind games like CrossFire and Honor of Kings. While we can't be sure, it looks like Zombies will also be available in Call of Duty: Mobile.

Blackout is Call of Duty's new battle royale mode that debuted with Black Ops 4 previous year.
