A ton of Call of Duty: Mobile details just dropped

This will be Activision's first fully featured major mobile title although they ave had attempts in the past, back in 2012 a leak revealed that Activision Leeds was working on a Call of Duty for mobile devices. At the end of it all, we're left feeling like Call of Duty: Mobile will be something of a greatest hits compilation of the games that came before it.

Activision hasn't confirmed which exact regions or countries will get access to Call of Duty Mobile following Australia and India, but a new trailer (seen above) has been released showing off more gameplay from the game, which rolls multiplayer (including Competitive Ranked mode and Clans), PvE Zombies, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout battle royale mode into one, portable package. Scorestreaks give you in-game access to tools like the Recon Car, UAV, Air Supply Drop, and VTOL, just to name a few.

As for as characters go, players will get to choose between characters from multiple games in the Call of Duty franchise such as Alex Mason, Thomas Merrick, and Simon "Ghost" Riley.

Players can pick from six confirmed characters from the Call of Duty series.

It should also be noted that bringing Call of Duty to mobile is no easy task, especially in terms of controls. Players will be able to customize their characters with clothing and other gear. Call of Duty Mobile comes with a total of five modes which include Free-For-All, Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, and Domination. Free-For-All supports up to eight players, while the other game modes support up to 10 players.

Activision also divulged information about the game's settings and loadouts in its blog post.

You can also pick between simple and advanced modes.

Call of Duty Mobile is set to launch on Android and iOS devices later this year. We know it'll be a free-to-play game so we're expecting microtransactions in some form (they're a given considering that full-retail Call of Duty games still have microtransactions), but for now, Activision is keeping its lips sealed on the matter. Also unknown is when the game will enter beta on iOS and Android. While simple mode enables auto-firing at enemies when the cross-hair is focused on them, advanced mode, meanwhile, allows for manual firing, choosing how you hold different weapon types, and customizing your HUD - similar to PUBG Mobile but far more granular.

Call of Duty: Mobile follows its predecessors and features scorestreaks instead of killstreaks.
