Call of Duty Mobile has been talked about as a possibility for years now but it looks like the success of PUBG and Fortnite has pushed Activision to finally make the jump. In partnership with Tencent, soon, Call of Duty: Mobile will see release in Asia, North America, South America and Europe.
Tencent has been one of Activision’s partners for years now. Call of Duty: Mobile will be entering a beta test phase soon across both Android and iOS, allowing the developers to test servers and optimise performance. Content-wise, you can expect familiar maps and game modes from past titles in the series.
Graphically, we are expecting the game to look similar to Black Ops or Modern Warfare running on an Xbox 360. You’ll still get 60fps gameplay, although mileage will likely vary depending on how new your phone or tablet is.
Multiplayer modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy and Free for All will be available. An exact release date hasn’t been announced yet, but beta signups are open, HERE.
KitGuru Says: Given how Activision is always looking to squeeze more money out of the franchise, I’m surprised that Call of Duty: Mobile didn’t happen sooner. It will be interesting to see if this ends up being successful, I imagine a lot of the younger COD players might make the jump, especially since the mobile version will be free to play.
