I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve not been the biggest fan of the mobile version of the popular Call of Duty franchise. I’ve been a fan of the game series since it was released back in 2003 but the mobile version just felt a little clunky at launch. Things have changed a little.
Although Call of Duty Mobile has only been out for a year now, it has already amassed a serious following of mobile gamers – many of whom are PC gamers and fans of the original franchise. Since its launch on 1 October 2019 the game has earned over 250 million downloads and generated over US$330m a year later.
The game offers a lot of value for a free-to-play title and there is an impressive number of game modes to choose from. In terms of traditional multiplayer titles there is Team Deathmatch, Domination, search and destroy, domination, Gunfight, Kill Confirmed, Hardpoint, and Freepoint.
Gamers will also find time-limited featured games that differ in-game styles and difficulty, including the much-loved zombie mode.
Of course, the latest edition to the game options is the much loved Battle Royale mode that sees gamers battle, 100 other players, in short, 15-minute games that can be pretty intense.
While many parallels can be drawn to games like PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile is a very different game altogether. There are a number of elements that add a very different feel to this gamer’s multiplayer and Battle Royale features.
From reviving teammates to getting your hands on a tank, it is clear to see that COD Mobile aims to stay true to its roots and deliver non-stop action with a lot of beautiful visuals and many in-game features.
Although the game offers loads of in-game purchasing options, as with most mobile games, and there are loads of items to spend your money on. I did love the fact that you can create custom room games for free though, its a nice addition to a free game.
As a seasoned PUBGM player it took a while to get used to some of the controls and game mechanics. Some game features, like running around and shooting from the hip, still feel very sluggish to me. But I’m deadset on putting more hours into this game so expect more feedback on these features. — © 2020 MBLGMR
