Activision and Tencent are bringing Call of Duty to mobile devices in the West with Call of Duty: Mobile, a free-to-play game that will draw inspiration from the Black Ops and Modern Warfare franchises.
Call of Duty: Mobile is being developed by Tencent’s Timi studio for Android and iOS devices. Activision promises competitive multiplayer modes from the Call of Duty franchise, including Search and Destroy and Free-For-All, on series staple maps like Nuketown, Crash, and Hijacked. Call of Duty: Mobile players will “earn and unlock classic Call of Duty characters, weapons, scorestreaks and other gear to equip and customize their loadouts,” Activision said in a press release.
A peek at those multiplayer modes, maps, and character customization can be seen in the trailer above. Teases for future modes and content, including zombies, are tucked in at the end.
Call of Duty: Mobile was revealed during today’s Unity keynote at GDC. The game will offer a “definitive” Call of Duty experience on mobile, Activision VP of mobile Chris Plummer said in a release. “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,” Plummer said.
Players can register for Call of Duty: Mobile at the game’s official website. A public beta is coming this summer in “select regions,” but an official release date was not announced.
