Call Of Duty Mobile: Pre-Registrations Open
Activision Blizzard and Chinese media giant Tencent are partnering to bring the evergreen Call of Duty to your mobile phone, officially named “Call of Duty M”. Activision is relying on the PUBG Mobile hitmaker on bringing a smartphone-friendly version of the game as a free-to-play first-person shooter on iOS and Android. The trailer has created quite the buzz around the implication of a new Battle Royale mode. Something that Tencent is dominating the markets with, with its Number 1 ranked PUBG Mobile Battle Royale game. Other details like new guns, game levels, maps and characters have created high expectations amidst fans.
Pre-registrations are now open on Google Play and App Store, to notify you when the game is ready to download. The trailers for the game suggest adrenaline-fuelled multiplayer action inline with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The trailer also teases at a battle royale mode which is expected to be added post game launch.
Given the dramatic shift in mobile gaming trends with the success FPS multiplayer giants – Fortnite and PUBG Mobile, it’s no surprise that Activision is jumping in for a slice of the action. Though an official announcement of the beta release dates is yet to be made, reports seem to indicate a late summer release.
Play Iconic Game Modes!
Multiplayer has been the foundation of the Call of Duty Games since the start. Players can now team up with friends to play their favorite modes like Frontline, Search-and-Destroy and Team Deathmatch on iconic battlegrounds, like Nuketown, Hijacked and Crash. Activision promises players either 10 player free combat or 5 on 5 team combat, though players are eager to see if they can pull off a 100 player Battle Arena as PUBG Mobile does. With all that Activision promises with the game, interest in the beta is high, with an increasing number of pre-registrations. Given the success and continuing popularity of the Call of Duty series even today, as well as a number of successful console and PC game titles making successful transitions to mobile, Activision seems to be on the right track.
Beta Test Events
It should be pointed out that the number of pre-registrations doesn’t necessarily translate to a guaranteed spot for the beta access list. But don’t give up hope on not making the first cut. Activision will be conducting multiple pre-release beta test events in the months to follow. How many beta test events and the duration of the beta before the official launch is unknown. However, this means that those eager players waiting to be the first beta testers of the game would get multiple chances to try out the game on early access.
Optimization For Mobile
Optimization on the game for high-end device accessibility is on, though specific device names have not been confirmed. Flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10, Google Pixel 3 and iPhone X are likely to be amongst the supported devices. Expecting support for more devices to be added to this list by launch would be a safe bet.
