Activision proudly announced today that their Call of Duty Mobile game, having just launched, has already received over 35 million downloads worldwide (the figure combines both the iOS and Android versions of the game). It’s big news for ’em, but who really expected a new mobile game bearing the Call of Duty brand to fail?
Call of Duty Mobile is not a new Call of Duty game, but it is a lot of old ones. Think of it as the video game version of a sitcom clip show episode. Remember that time you played the Nuketown map? (audience noises) How about Crash of Hijacked? (more audience noises) They’re all here, playable in familiar modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy and Free-For-All. Also, there’s a Battle Royale mode.
As you play, you’ll gradually unlock classic characters, weapons, scorestreaks and gear from the Call of Duty series. Note that this IS a free-to-play title so we’re sure the app will be pestering you to spend money on them instead.
“The response from fans across both Android and iOS has been amazing. Already, Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 35 million downloads on its way to becoming the #1 ranked iOS app in downloads overall, not only among games, but also among all apps, in 100 countries,” says Rob Kostich, president of Activision. “This is an incredibly fun experience, and we’re only getting started. Congratulations to the teams at Activision and at our partner Tencent’s TiMi Studios for making such a great game for players. And special thanks to our fans for their continued support. There is a ton more to look forward to as we release more content and updates.”
Call of Duty Mobile is available now on iOS and Android. The app is free to play.
