Activision Blizzard have announced that Call of Duty Mobile is releasing on 1 October 2019 through a release date trailer. It will feature a mashup of characters from the franchise and will be free to play with in-app purchases.
Call of Duty fans will rejoice on 1 October 2019 when their favourite franchise reaches the small screens of their mobile devices. According to the trailer below, the game seems to have incredibly good graphics but it remains to be seen whether they will be actually downgraded once the app gets released.
CoD: Mobile will be available on both iOS and Android but Activision didn't specify which devices will be able to run it just yet. Considering it's just under two weeks from release, it's high time players were informed their devices can run the game or not.
Anyway, this is not a new entry in the franchise but rather a mashup of the most popular characters, maps and modes from the existing Call of Duty games. For example, players will have access to some of the most popular maps like Nuketown and Crossfire. Fan favourite characters like John "Soap" McTavish and Simon "Ghost" Riley are coming to duke it out with popular people from other Call of Duty series.
Naturally, a battle royale mode in this day and age was unavoidable so Call of Duty: Mobile will have one as well. It will feature up to 100 players on a map crafted specifically for the mobile version. It remains to be seen how well it will perform when loading a pile of player models, especially in a game that looks so good on the release date video.
The graphics on the trailer above certainly look impressive for mobile devices which will either mean only the top-notch hardware will be able to run it or the graphics will not look as good once CoD: Mobile actually launches due to optimisation. Whatever the case happens to be, it's a free to play game so no loss will be incurred upfront.
