Since the iPhone took off all those years ago, there have been numerous Call of Duty clones that haven't lived up to the hype. Fans of the franchise have been clamoring a proper mobile release, and today, Activision announced that Call of Duty: Mobile is coming to previously unannounced regions, including North America, South America, Europe, and more.
As is the trend nowadays, Activision is teaming up with Chinese conglomerate Tencent to deliver the game. According to the company, Call of Duty: Mobile is a new free-to-play game that brings together maps, modes, weapons, and characters from across the Call of Duty franchise, including the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series. Surprisingly, it's not developed by Activision, but by Tencent's Timi studio. It'll be exclusive to Android and iOS, and feature multiple game modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Free-For-All, in iconic maps like Nuketown, Crash, Hijacked, and more.
If you can't wait to play Call of Duty: Mobile, you can register at the game's website. If you sign up, you'll gain access to the public beta coming this summer.
Vice President of Mobile at Activision Chris Plummer said the following when asked about the game.
We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience in a new mobile title with incredible graphics and visceral Call of Duty gameplay. Together with the amazing 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.
Hopefully Call of Duty: Mobile will be a polished experience when it launches on mobile this year. What are your thoughts on the free-to-play game? Let us know.
