Call Of Duty: Mobile – planning to take over the world

Activision has announced an open beta for its mobile version of COD that will start this summer, including what looks like Blackout.

Consoles aren’t really a thing in China and many other Asian countries, and that means publishers have to take a slightly different tack with some of their biggest franchises.

Call Of Duty: Mobile was originally created in collaboration with Chinese giant Tencent, as a free-to-play download for iOS and Android using the Unity engine.

It was originally never intended for release in the West but now it’s making it the jump anyway, with an open beta due to start later in the year.

The app includes elements taken from multiple different consoles versions of the game, including entries in the Modern Warfare and Black Ops sub-franchises.

That means maps such as Nuketown, Crash, and Hijacked; modes such as team deathmatch, search and destroy, and free-for-all; and unlockable specialists similar to Black Ops.

There’s also traditional scorestreaks and unlockable gear to customise your loadout.

The trailer above also clearly hints at battle royale mode, with helicopters about to drop dozens of players into the map.

That aspects hasn’t been confirmed yet but no doubt we’ll learn more as the beta approaches.

If you’re already keen then you may want to pre-register your interest at the official website.
