Activision released new details for Call of Duty: Mobile this week, including a look at the titles in-game UI, as well as specifics on what game modes will be available, characters you'll see, and playable maps.
The Call of Duty: Mobile closed beta starts this week in India.
This information was revealed in a very lengthy blog post, which is also where Activision confirmed six characters that will feature in the game.
Call of Duty: Mobile has entered a beta phase in India, allowing gamers across the globe to play it via VPN. And the last company to announce that it will be taking on this genre was Activision when it announced in March this year tat it will be launching a mobile version of Call of Duty. Call of Duty Mobile comes with a total of five modes which include Free-For-All, Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, and Domination.
Already, those who have managed to get in are already posting extended gameplay previews of Call of Duty Mobile in action, and those who are still eagerly awaiting news of access can expect to see an email appear in their inbox over the coming weeks and months, provided they've already pre-registered. While Nuketown, Crash, and Hijacked had already been announced, Activision has now revealed that Call of Duty Mobile players will also get access to other classic maps like Crossfire, Standoff, Crash, and Killhouse among others. Free-For-All supports up to eight players, while the other game modes support up to 10 players.
Finally, Activision divulged plenty of information about Call of Duty: Mobile's settings and loadouts. The settings allow players to choose whether to always be sprinting, adjust sensitivity, pick and fine-tune the gyroscope function for aiming, and tweak the camera field-of-vision. The six characters Activision confirmed today are Alex Mason, David "Section" Mason, Thomas A. Merrick, Simon "Ghost" Riley, John "Soap" MacTavish, and John Price. Yeah, that's a lot to mess around with and that's not all.
Loadouts are what you can pick a primary and secondary weapon. You can pick and add skins for each weapon, with players also able to equip an explosive or tactical grenade. There are also weapon skills - these work similarly to specialist weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - and up to three perks for each loadout.
Then there's "scorestreaks" which is essentially just COD terminology for killstreaks.
