Killstreaks on the go, soon it will be possible
Call of Duty: Mobile has an official release date, namely October 1, 2019. Also nice: the title appears on both Android and iOS. The game is available almost anywhere in the world on the official release date; only China, Vietnam and Belgium (loot box ban) will have to wait longer.
The free-to-play, multiplayer-only game shrinks the title into a usable game on smartphones, with custom controls and functions that must retain the feel of a first-person shooter on this occasionally tricky platform.
Numerous classic cards such as Nuketown and Crash have been ported to Call of Duty: Mobile, as well as the multiplayer modes Team Deathmatch, Search & Destroy and Free-For-All. The result of all this input is that the weapons, speed of the action, and the entire flow can hardly be improved on the mobile platform.
Ustechreview has already been introduced to a CoD: Mobile preview version on E3 2019, and the game felt particularly recognizable at the time. As an avid CoD player, you probably don’t have to go to much trouble to appreciate this title. You will probably continue to keep an advantage over ‘newbies’.
The already acquired Call of Duty experience probably also offers a solution in the battle generous mode, taken from the Call of Duty Blackout mode of the console, but then on a gigantic folder with fused cards that you already know from previous CoD games. Bonus: a treasure chest of weapons and vehicles is also available in this mode to choose from.
What makes a mobile Call of Duty
Of course, there is a big difference between playing a shooter on the newest generation of consoles or PC and playing on a smartphone. Call of Duty: Mobile has some new control options to make the transition go as smoothly as possible. Think of an automatic shooting function that fires your weapon when your aim indicator is on an enemy. The HUD can also be adjusted, so you have as little adornment as possible on the small display.
These mobile-friendly options are not surprising additions. Tencent’s Timi Studio is developing Call of Duty: Mobile in collaboration with Activision. The game studio has previously prepared one of the PUBG versions for the Chinese market, as well as the MOBA, Arena of Valor / Honor or Kings games.
CoD: Mobile launches with a cartload of multiplayer modes and a Battle Royale mode. Although the CoD: Mobile press release did not mention, we did see hints of a zombie mode in the game we played on the E3 2019.
Given the popularity of zombie modes on the internet, it would be almost stupid for Activision not to include such a mode. At the moment, however, we can only wait and see.
