Call Of Duty Is Coming To Smartphones

Call Of Duty Is Coming To Smartphones

In the years since Call of Duty was released in 2004, there have been 15 different games, all exploring different aspects of the battlefield.

Some hark back to recent history like World War One, while others look to the future to imagine what warfare will be like in the years to come.

Well, Activision is now bringing out a new game just for smartphones. The company released a trailer showing what gameplay will look like.

Now you don't need to cart your console or PC around the place to play your favourite shoot-em-up game.

Activision said on its website: "The new free-to-play Call of Duty: Mobile title is headed to worldwide audiences complete with fan-favourite weapons, maps, and characters from across the franchise. Pre-registration opens today!

"Are you ready to experience intense firefights across iconic Call of Duty maps like Nuketown, Crash, and Hijacked on your mobile device? Want to play Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, Free-for-All, and other fan-favourite gameplay modes while you're on the go?

"Call of Duty: Mobile is set to deliver the definitive first-person action experience to mobile gamers featuring an epic online multiplayer action pitting players in head-to-head competitive confrontations.

"The game features additional modes of play which will be announced at a future date."

The trailer says you'll be able to play with your mates on some kind of network link and it even hinted that CoD Zombies would be included in the future.

You can pre-register with Activision on their website before the game comes out, which allows you to earn in-game rewards or hear about beta releases.

Sadly, there's been no date set for the game's release, but the company says it will be available in 'North America, South America, Europe, and other territories'.

In other Call of Duty news, the remastered version of Modern Warfare 2 was practically confirmed this month almost by accident.

The Pan European Game Information board (PEGI) has confirmed an (18-certificate) age rating for a game titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which on paper sounds pretty much like a confirmation... But it isn't quite as it seems.

Firstly, the new rating only covers 'Campaign Remastered', which is obviously bad news for fans of the game's various multiplayer maps.

Plus, the listing is currently only for PlayStation 4 - so Sony players could potentially get access to the much-requested remaster before it arrives on other platforms.

It wouldn't be the first time that a CoD game has released with console-exclusive timed content - post-launch content for 2018's Black Ops IIII came first to PS4.

If the remaster does show up as a campaign-only experience, that'll tally with rumours that did the rounds in early 2018, when an Italian Amazon listing for said game - Modern Warfare 2, campaign only - was spied, before being swiftly removed. It was priced at a point, perhaps reflecting its streamlined form, at around 20 Euros.
