Call Of Duty Mobile Details Revealed Before Beta Begins
Take a Call of Duty.
Activision has shared more details on free-to-play Call of Duty Mobile as the spinoff game approaches the regional beta testing phase. The first closed beta is beginning this week in India, with regional tests also starting soon in Australia and then following to other territories over the coming months.
A post on the Activision Blog details the upcoming game's multiplayer mode (although traditional multiplayer will not be the only way to play). A variety of control options let you customize the toggles like sensitivity, gyroscope aiming, field of vision, and sprinting. You can choose Simple Mode, which auto-fires your weapon, or Advanced Mode that uses manual firing along with some other options and HUD customizations. It even boasts 17 sliders for aiming sensitivity.
As a Call of Duty game, of course, you can select up to three Scorestreak equipment like the Recon Car, Air Supply Drop, Missile Strike, Drone, and Sentry Gun. From your Loadout menu you'll pick a Primary and a Secondary weapon, each with its own optics and attachments, grenades, and perks. Your five loadout slots can be one of several characters from Call of Duty history, including Alex Mason, Soap MacTavish, and Ghost Riley.
So far the studio has announced five modes--all Call of Duty stalwarts--and descriptions for five of the seven maps. The modes below each support 10 players, with the exception of Free-For-All, which is limited to eight.
Call of Duty Mobile Confirmed Multiplayer Modes
- Team Deathmatch
Call of Duty Mobile Confirmed Multiplayer Maps
- Crossfire: “Small desert town. Intense interior fighting and strong firefights.” Bring your sniper rifle in this compact street fight; the Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare map is revisited, with cramped and confined structures (where shotguns are a good choice) are flanked by two taller buildings at each end of this Z-shaped thoroughfare.
- Standoff: “Border town between China and Kyrgyzstan. Classic engagements and desintations to fight over.”Also known to Black Ops III fans as Outlaw, this map which originally debuted in Black Ops II offers a variety of tight hiding spots, upper structures that favor the long-range weapon wrangler, and a main compound with a walled perimeter to infiltrate in a variety of gameplay styles.
- Crash: “Downed Sea Knight in a desert town. Fantastic team games.” A classic Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare map, this well-loved map features blind corners, a crashed chopper, rusty barrels, narrow streets overlooked by shelled-out buildings as well as rooftop sniping positions. Expect quick and deadly action during Multiplayer matches here.
- Killhouse: “Speedball style warehouse interior. Great for small teams.” If you’re wanting an almost symmetrical map with a central lookout tower, and have a penchant for rapid takedowns where shotguns can take precedence, practice on Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare’s Killhouse. This warehouse offers multiple wooden and concrete hiding spots, and almost constant action.
- Firing Range: “Military practice facility. Hectic Domination games.” Journey to Cuba in this reworking of an original Black Ops map, seen most recently in Black Ops 4. Corrugated and wooden sheds, long, ruined structures, a muddy courtyard and rusting equipment, abandoned in the hot sun, make this a classic and chaotic map
You can pre-register through the official site which will also sign you up for a chance at the beta. Additional gameplay modes are still to be announced, but as noted above, Activision teased that there's more to the game than what fits under the "Multiplayer" umbrella.
Meanwhile, the new Call of Duy for 2019 is Modern Warfare. This brings back characters from that sub-series but operates as a reboot of sorts, as the number-less title suggests. Here's everything we know about the new game.
