Call Of Duty Mobile's First Seasonal Halloween Event Kicks Off
Call of Spooky.
There will be limited-time content releasing throughout the Halloween event period, including new treats to acquire, new skills to master in Battle Royale, a limited-time Hard Point game mode, Molotov cocktail scorestreak, and more. There's also a Halloween-themed version of Black Ops 2's Standoff map available in Team Deathmatch, Seek and Destroy, and Domination. More details on the event are scheduled to arrive today via Activision's Games Blog.
Elsewhere, developer Tencent Games says it's listening to player feedback in its latest community update. Players reporting cheating are "something that the team cares a great deal about. We'll keep doing our best to keep cheaters out of your matches and to make sure those who don't intend to play fair are caught." Tencent also wants players to continue leaving feedback on what limited-time modes should be made permanent, and future updates promise to reward those who have already reached the highest possible rank.
In terms of bug reports, Tencent says it is investigating a reported issue where reload animations are not syncing up with the actual time it takes to reload. If you're still having problems linking your Facebook account to COD: Mobile, the developer has outlined some troubleshooting options. "First, please try clearing your cache on your phone, then log back into the Facebook app, and lastly try logging in again on the COD Mobile login page. You can find a step by step breakdown of how to clear your cache on Activision Support's COD Mobile FAQ." For those encountering issues with transactions, Tencent says to make sure the transaction was successful, wait a few hours and restart the game in case there is a delay, and contact player support if you still don't see the purchase.
Aside from COD Mobile, the long-running series also sees the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare this Friday, October 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Early copies have already made it out into the wild, so beware of spoilers. For those waiting till Friday, we have all the details on when you can begin pre-loading the game, and there's a handy rundown on how its multiplayer progression works.
