Activision introduces a new Call of Duty game on mobile devices, and what appears to be the first trailer of the title is now online. The game, which seems to simply call Call of Duty: Mobile, is a free game that promises "thrilling action and adrenaline fueled with Call of Duty wherever you go."
The game features "multiple game modes" on a number of different cards, including popular cards such as Nuketown and Crash. According to Activision, the game is "mobile-optimized", but what it means in practice is not entirely clear. At the end of the video, it looks like Activision is teasing a royal battle mode, but it's not confirmed at this point.
Call of Duty: Mobile also includes weapons and characters from previous Call of Duty games, including Black Ops and Modern Warfare. However, it is described as a stand-alone game that is not directly connected to a previous entry.
Activision offers Call of Duty: Mobile to "high-end" phones, but the studio is also striving to make it "widely available to so many other devices."
Call of Duty: Mobile arrives on Android and iOS, and you can pre-register now. By signing up, you will have the opportunity to win in-game rewards and learn about upcoming beta tests, which should begin later this year.
Last year, Activision announced the launch of a new mobile game Call of Duty for China, developed alongside Tencent. It's the same game, developed by Tencent's Timi studio, but it's now extended to other regions like North America, South America, Europe and other places.
Call of Duty: Mobile is not the only new title Call of Duty to be released this year. The acquisition of this year's main line is expected and should feature a campaign mode that is remarkable since Black Ops 4 of 2018 left it out. Rumor has it that the game calls Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 from developer Infinity Ward, but this has not been confirmed.
