Call of Duty Mobile by Activision and Tencent's TiMi Studio has officially launched in China with a trailer directed by famous singer Jay Chou, which you want to see.

And Call of Duty Mobile's launch trailer is quite the spectacle, and we can safely say that Chou can stop being known as just "singer". The trailer is playing with the notion of a Call of Duty director, zipping around the battlefield as if a match was ongoing.

We must admit the production quality is quite something, as it mixes actual with CG footage seamlessly.

For many Chinese players, this will be their first contact with the franchise, since Call of Duty's popularity in the West didn't quite catch up in China yet. 

And it looks like Activision and Tencent could double their Call of Duty Mobile playerbase, even though with 300 million downloads to its name, some might think it's a tall order.

Call of Duty Mobile has made a great start in China, debuting at #1 on the iOS Games chart with more than 70 million confirmed pre-registrations.

It looks like Tencent and Activision will be covering the launch with esports and other events. The two have apparently started sending out invitations for the first Call of Duty Mobile invitational, and there's talk of several esports organisations joining. 

As for the Call of Duty Mobile in the West, the two have recently rolled out Season 13: Winter War, which says enough about its ongoing popularity. Season 13 brought with it Nuketown Russa and Holiday Raid, quirky takes on fan favourites, and a bunch of new weapons and gear.
