New Call of Duty app released

Following Call of Duty: Ghosts release, Activision launches free app for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices.

Following the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts last week, Activision has launched an all-new free Call of Duty app for iOS, Android, Windows Phone devices, and Windows 8. The app is free to download and was developed by Beachhead in collaboration with Infinity Ward.

The new Call of Duty app was designed to work "hand-in-hand" with Call of Duty: Ghosts, Activision said. Players can use the app to join, create, and manage a Call of Duty: Ghosts Clan and also to create and customize their in-game soldier and loadout.

In addition, come November 25, gamers will be able to compete in Clan Wars using the Call of Duty app.

The Call of Duty app can also be used to track career stats and includes a feature called Rally Up, which will notify friends about starting a match. The app also features a news hub, where players can read up about what's new with the shooter series.

Lastly, the Call of Duty app will feature various second-screen functionality, though this is not available today and will come later. Players will be able to make last-second changes to their loadouts before a match begins using the app or receive extended information about players after a match has ended. It was not announced when these second-screen features will be added.

Call of Duty: Ghosts was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U on November 5. The game will be available at launch for the PlayStation 4 (November 15) and Xbox One (November 22). For more, check out GameSpot's review.

lol sonygaf site went down when Polygons review of COD Ghosts came up. =)

"Call of Duty: Ghosts is a more playable, slightly superior (albeit disappointing) game on Xbox One."


PS4 - 6,5
Xbox One - 7,0

this is not only for phones and tablets. it is also in windows 8.1 store for pc laptops/desktops.

this app doesn't actually work for everyone. it was supposed to be available on november 5th for pc (windows 8 only) but was delayed most of the week.... now you can finally download it, but all you can do is try to log in. after that it tells you to play your first multiplayer match and logs you out. rinse/repeat. 

broken app. it's amazing an app like this releases late and broken, yet it gets no media coverage at all. the app has exclusive features like clan management and changing your loadout during a game. stuff that can't be done in-game!

imagine if battlelog just didn't work, and was only available if you used windows 8. yeah, if there weren't already enough reasons for pc gamers to avoid this franchise.

Wow I can't believe that people still like COD.  Ghosts and BO2 have ruined a game that I enjoyed up until that point.  Removing features that BO had for free and making COD online and apps to get the same info seems really odd.

That's pretty cool.  Hope more devs try to make apps to go along with their games

Rockstar could learn something from this.

Man, this app boomed.  100,000 downloads on android already.  I remember installing it 2 days after the game released and it only had 400 downloads.

Already in the top 10 Free charts. The clan customization is a brilliant idea, being able to edit the emblem and manage your clan on the fly will be handy. I loved bringing in my custom classes to work and comparing them with my colleagues with 'Elite', so I think the create a soldier function will improve the social aspect of Ghosts.

@Rayzakk I can't believe people who don't like a game bother reading articles about a game they don't like, let alone actually going to the bother of posting about it.

@Bangerman15 It's pretty poorly implemented. There should be a website to compliment the app as it is quite limited and really annoying to organise my clan. with Elite you could look at your KD for each gun but now you have to do it through the rather clunky UI in the actual game. I for one hope this doesn't become the norm
