Call of Duty: Mobile launches October 1, will have battle royale mode

Thursday, 19 Sep, 2019

We now have an official launch date for Call of Duty: Mobile - October 1. "We'll be announcing more post-launch".

The game, which will be available on iOS and Android for free, has been brought to the world in collaboration with Tencent, the Chinese publisher that's the parent company of League of Legends developer Riot Games, and which helped bring Fortnite to China. The first is your standard multiplayer mode, with plenty of customization options for players to dive into.

Along the way, you will rank up to earn and unlock 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. There are multiple game modes such as Frontline, Search and Destroy, Team Deathmatch, Domination and Gun Game.

Call of Duty: Mobile has been officially available in some regions like Australia for quite some time now, but it will now be available for all users at the start of the next month.

For those who love PUBG Mobile-like battle royale games, Call of Duty: Mobile's battle royale mode will support up to 100 players in a big sized open map. It seems that Call of Duty: Mobile is taking a page out of the Apex Legends book, as there will be six classes to choose from before you drop onto the island. The game features fan-favourite maps, competitive game modes, familiar characters, and signature weapons inspired from Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and other Call of Duty franchise games. The exclusion of Belgium suggests to me that we can expect loot boxes to make an appearance as part of COD Mobile's free-to-play monetisation.
