Call of Duty Windows Phone companion app now available, let the campaign begin

With the release of the latest installment of the Call of Duty series over on the Xbox console, we are also seeing a Call of Duty companion Windows Phone app lurking in the shadows.

The official Call of Duty app hopes to provide a new mobile experience designed to work hand in hand with Call of Duty Ghosts. The app does require Call of Duty registration (can be done through the app) and you have to play your first Call of Duty Ghosts multiplayer match before you can start using the app.

Once active, the Call of Duty Windows Phone app will keep you up to date with all the latest Call of Duty news and events, let you track your COD career stats, as well as create/join a Call of Duty Ghosts Clan. Once a part of a Clan you can coordinate game times, strategies and chat with other Clan members.

You can also compete against other Clans in Call of Duty Clan Wars to earn exclusive in-game bonuses. Second screen support is in development and is listed as "coming soon" and look for the Clan Wars features to being later this month.

Call of Duty is a free app for Windows Phone 8 devices and can be picked up here in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, everyone, for the tips!
