Free to play Call of Duty Mobile launches in October

Take your headshots on the go with the diminutive Call of Duty Mobile when it launches next month.


Activision, in collaboration with Tencent, is bringing its mobile twist on the Call of Duty series to iOS and Android next month.

Call of Duty Mobile is the same first-person shooter experience you get on consoles and PC on your smartphone. It's set to launch on October 1 around the world, except for Mainland China, Vietnam, and Belgium. You'll be able to experience some of your favorite maps, modes, weapons, and characters culled from the series over the years in one place, which means you don't have to run home for a quick Call of Duty session with your friends. Just do it on the go!

“We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience on mobile with signature Call of Duty gameplay in the palms of your hands,” said Chris Plummer, VP, Mobile at Activision. “We are bringing together some of the best the franchise has to offer, including Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire, Black Ops maps like Nuketown and Hijacked, and many more, into one epic title. We’ve tested the game extensively in select territories and the feedback we’ve received has helped us refine the experience for October 1."

At launch, the game will come with a variety of different multiple modes and Battle Royale, as well as several different mobile-centric modes and limited-time events and playlists that will be swapped around regularly. Multiplayer will have players going head to head in modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Free-For-All on maps like Crash, Hijacked, and Nuketown. Players can earn the use of different characters from throughout Call of Duty history, like Alex Mason and John "Soap" MacTavish as well.

You can go ahead and sign-up to pre-register for Call of Duty Mobile right now, but you won't get to jump in until October 1. Are you excited to be taking the battlefield on the go with you?
