Call Of Duty Mobile Season 9 Starts Today
Season 9: Conquest also features a brand-new game mode and marquee event on Android and iOS.
Publisher Activision has announced that Call of Duty Mobile's Season 9 starts today, August 15. Titled Conquest, the new season introduces a fresh battle pass, an added game mode, and more. You won't want to miss what's new here, including even more ways to play battle royale.
The headlining feature of Season 9: Conquest is the extra Battle Royale areas. The in-game Battle Royale map has been updated to include four new locations for players to loot weapons and battle enemies in. This includes Campground, Dormitory, Outpost, and Radar Base, all of which house the new Armor Plate item that repairs damaged armor so that you can stay in the fight a little bit longer. In addition to the updated Battle Royale map, Multiplayer has been refreshed with the brand-new close-quarters map Shipment 1944.
Activision shared a roadmap of Season 9's content, which outlines what's now live and what's to come.
Elsewhere in Season 9, players can further customize weapons with the addition of Gunsmith, a feature seen in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Just as expected, Gunsmith lets players personalize their favorites guns with over 50 new attachments, 20 new reticles, and 60 weapon levels. Battle Royale also supports Gunsmith.
And of course, Season 9 comes with a new battle pass with free and premium tiers that features new characters, weapon skins, weapon charms, a new scorestreak, a new weapon, and more. Victor Reznov from the Black Ops series and World at War can be unlocked via the premium tier while the new Kilo Bolt-Action Rifle can be obtained by reaching tier 21 on the free battle pass.
Coming later this month is a new game mode and marquee event. The 10v10 Featured Playlist increases the player count and includes Domination and Team Deathmatch on Crossfire, Meltdown, Shipment, and Takeoff. Meanwhile, the Finest Hour marquee event lets players assemble an army to conquer cities on a virtual map. Those who succeed in their takeovers will earn characters and weapons for each city seized.
Season 9: Conquest also packages various user interface updates, weapon balances, and gameplay optimizations. Activision has yet to outline these changes.
In other Call of Duty news, recent teasers for this year's entry seemingly confirm the Cold War setting. While an official announcement has yet to be unveiled, Call of Duty 2020 details continue to trickle out.
