Tencent and Activision announced at GDC that the Call of Duty: Mobile beta will soon be coming to regions including Europe, North America, and South America (via Engadget). This comes after a very early version of the game was reportedly released to testers in Australia late last year.
Those wanting the chance to be among the first to try out the beta can pre-register at the Call of Duty: Mobile official site.
What do we know about Call of Duty: Mobile?
Activision and Tencent announced they were teaming up to bring a mobile version of Call of Duty to China last year, so we knew the game was coming.
According to the official website, the game will be free-to-play and will feature maps (Nuketown, Crash), weapons, and characters from previous Call of Duty games including Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
As with all recent games in the Call of Duty franchise, the mobile version will have a strong focus on multiplayer modes including team deathmatch and frontline. In terms of gameplay, the Call of Duty YouTube channel posted a trailer yesterday (embedded above) that suggests the game will be of a similar standard to last generation consoles.
While this could spell bad news for those without high-end smartphones, the Call of Duty website says the developers are working hard to make sure the game is playable on a broad range of devices.
When is the Call of Duty: Mobile release date?
Unfortunately, we don’t know when Activision and Tencent will release the game, or begin letting beta testers play. The trailer simply says it is coming soon. However, to have the best chance of playing as soon as possible, you should register using one of the links above.
