Activision's free-to-play Call of Duty mobile game gets October release date


Activision has announced that its free-to-play Call of Duty mobile game will, following its limited beta launch earlier this summer, be getting an official iOS and Android release on 1st October.

Call of Duty: Mobile, as the game is imaginatively titled, is a collaboration between Activision and gargantuan Chinese entertainment company Tencent, with development duties being handled by Tencent’s in-house studio Timi.

The package promises to deliver its own mobile spin on the classic Call of Duty FPS formula, and features maps, modes, weapons, and characters from all across series. Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire are included, for instance, as are Black Ops’ Nuketown and Hijacked.

Activision says that Call of Duty: Mobile will feature a range of modes at launch, including Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Free-For-All. Additionally, players can unlock familiar series characters (such as John “Soap” MacTavish and Simon “Ghost” Riley from the Modern Warfare series), as well as weapons, scorestreaks, and gear for use in customising load-outs.
