Developed Exclusively for Android and iOS, New Free-to-Play Mobile Game Delivers the Definitive Call of Duty Experience

Features Full, Head-to-Head Call of Duty Multiplayer Modes and Unique Battle Royale Gameplay, All Built From the Ground Up for Mobile

Activision, in collaboration with Tencent, today announced that Call of Duty®: Mobile will launch on October 1 in all countries where Google Play and App Store are supported with the exceptions of Mainland China, Vietnam and Belgium. Call of Duty: Mobile is the definitive, first-person action experience that for the first time ever delivers fan-favorite maps, modes, weapons and characters from across Call of Duty, including the Modern Warfare® and Black Ops series, in one complete mobile package. Call of Duty: Mobile, developed by Tencent’s award-winning Timi studio and published by Activision, is free-to-play on Android and iOS devices.

“We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience on mobile with signature Call of Duty gameplay in the palms of your hands,” said Chris Plummer, VP, Mobile at Activision. “We are bringing together some of the best the franchise has to offer, including Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire, Black Ops maps like Nuketown and Hijacked, and many more, into one epic title. We’ve tested the game extensively in select territories and the feedback we’ve received has helped us refine the experience for October 1.”

Call of Duty: Mobile will launch with a bevy of Call of Duty Multiplayer modes and Battle Royale, with more modes and content, time-limited events and playlists to be added on a regular basis.

In Multiplayer, players will experience the fluid, first-person combat of Call of Duty, fighting head-to-head in fan-favorite modes such as Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy and Free-For-All, on iconic maps such as Nuketown, Crash, Hijacked and more. Along the way, players will rank up to earn and unlock classic Call of Duty characters such as John “Soap” MacTavish and Simon “Ghost” Riley from the Modern Warfare series, as well as Alex Mason from the Black Ops series. Weapons, scorestreaks and additional gear for equipping and customizing loadouts are also at players’ fingertips for the ultimate Call of Duty experience.

Battle Royale mode is a unique take on the genre from within the Call of Duty universe, specifically built and tailored for Call of Duty: Mobile. Up to 100 combatants will fight for survival in a map designed exclusively for the mobile title featuring locations from across the Call of Duty franchise in solos, duos or four-person teams. Players can battle across land, sea and air with vehicles including an ATV, helicopter, and tactical raft, while finding and equipping gear and weapons that span the series.
