Call of Duty: Mobile launch: How to download, gameplay, and more about new PUBG Mobile rival
Call of Duty: Mobile takes on PUBG Mobile with its own battle royale mode. The latest mobile game launches tomorrow.
Activision's long-awaited Call of Duty: Mobile rolls out on October 1 for Android and iOS smartphones. There has been a lot of buzz around the game for months mainly because of the Call of Duty legacy and a new battle royale mode which will help the game take on the popular PUBG Mobile.
How to download
Call of Duty: Mobile is available via Google Play Store and Apple App Store for download. Call of Duty: Mobile will be compatible with smartphones running at least 2GB of RAM and Android 5.1 and above. For iPhones, Call of Duty: Mobile will need your phone to have at least iOS 9.0 and above. If you own older generation Apple device such as iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3 and iPod Touch, Call of Duty: Mobile won't work.
PUBG Mobile-inspired battle royale
COD Mobile will allow up to 100 players to fight in a map through its battle royale mode. Gamers will have the option to play in duo, solo or even set up quad-player teams. Throughout the game, you will get in-game items such as helicopter, ATVs or tactical raft across land, water and air combats. COD Mobile allows users to switch between third-person perspective and first person perspective.
Call of Duty: Mobile's biggest highlight is going to be the multiplayer combat. The game allows you to select loadouts with secondary or primary weapons. You can improve your gameplay by acquiring more equipment. You can also unlock some of the popular Call of Duty: Mobile characters such as John "Soap" MacTavish and Simon "Ghost" Riley. There will be some familiar and new maps in the game such as Hijacked and Nuketown.
"Call of Duty: Mobile is a new, standalone mobile title that features a collection of fan-favorite maps, competitive game modes, familiar characters and signature weapons from across our beloved franchises, including Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, into one epic experience," according to the company's official website.
Play it on PC?
