Activision is bringing a new Call of Duty game to mobile devices, and now what appears to be the first trailer for the title has come online. The game, which appears to be simply titled Call of Duty: Mobile, is a free-to-play game that promises «heart-pounding, adrenaline-fueled action of Call of Duty with you wherever you go.»
The game features «multiple game modes» across a number of different maps, including popular ones like Nuketown and Crash. According to Activision, the game is «optimised for mobile,» but it’s not exactly clear what that means in practice. At the end of the video, it appears Activision is teasing a battle royale mode, but it’s not confirmed at this stage.
Call of Duty: Mobile also includes weapons and characters from previous Call of Duty games, including Black Ops and Modern Warfare. However, it’s described as a standalone game that is not directly connected to any previous entry.
Activision is making Call of Duty: Mobile with «high-end» phones in mind, but the studio is also working to allow it to be «broadly accessible for as many other devices as well.»
Call of Duty: Mobile is coming to Android and iOS, and you can pre-register now. Signing up gets you access to the opportunity to earn in-game rewards and learn about upcoming beta tests, which are set to begin later this year.
Last year, Activision announced a new Call of Duty mobile game for China that it was developing alongside Tencent. This is that same game, developed by Tencent’s studio Timi, but now it’s being expanded to other regions like North America, South America, Europe, and other places.
Call of Duty: Mobile isn’t the only new Call of Duty title coming this year. This year’s mainline instalment is on the way, and it’s expected to feature a campaign mode which is notable since 2018’s Black Ops 4 left it out. The game is rumoured to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 from developer Infinity Ward, but this is not confirmed.
