After a long wait and a lengthy beta period, Activision and Tencent’s Call of Duty Mobile finally has a release date. Call of Duty Mobile will launch on the App Store and Google Play on October 1 as a free-to-play game.

This is a global launch, with all countries except Belgium, Vietnam, and mainland China getting the game at the same time.

We detailed the game’s main focus a while back, but as a refresher, Call of Duty Mobile is essentially a compilation game. It brings together maps, modes, and characters from throughout the series, including the Black Ops and Modern Warfare subseries.

Activision’s VP of Mobile, Chris Plummer, said:

We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience on mobile with signature Call of Duty gameplay in the palms of your hands

We are bringing together some of the best the franchise has to offer, including Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire, Black Ops maps like Nuketown and Hijacked, and many more, into one epic title.

That said, it does only include multiplayer and battle royale modes at launch.

However, Activision mentioned more modes and content will be added to the game as time goes on, and the multiplayer component is more diverse than it might seem, with bits and bobs pulled from other Call of Duty multiplayer modes. Some of these multiplayer modes include Search and Destroy, Team Deathmatch, and Free-For-All.

CoD Mobile’s battle royale is Call of Duty meets PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, with up to 100 players fighting for survival, using their wits and whatever they can find — including vehicles — to try and make it out alive.

Ahead of its October 1 release date, Call of Duty Mobile‘s pre-registration is also open now and can be found here.
