Following an early release on Monday and a slightly rough launch early this morning, Call of Duty: Mobile is out now on iOS and Android. After several players had trouble with Call of Duty: Mobile not starting early Tuesday morning, Activision addressed the connection issues on Twitter, stating it was investigating a fix. Many players reported being stuck on the loading screen, which GameSpot can verify is still ongoing.
Developed by Tencent Games and Timi Studios, Call of Duty: Mobile is a free-to-play CoD experience “brimming with content” from both the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series, according to a press release from earlier this month. It is said to feature a fully-customizable control scheme, multiple game types, well-known characters and weapons, and a Battle Royale mode. You can download the game for free from the App Store or Google Play Store through the links below.
Game modes like Gun Game, Search and Destroy, and Team Deathmatch will all make an appearance in Call of Duty: Mobile. Additionally, maps such as Hijacked and Nuketown will be playable in the game. Activision promises that new content will be rolled out regularly, including seasonal updates. A debut event dubbed “Lighting up the World” will see players collectively working to unlock rewards for all players.

Call of Duty: Mobile ships with a Battle Royale mode on a “huge and unique open map.” You can play in Single-, Duo-, or Quad-player squads in either first- or third-person. The Battle Royale mode will feature locales from across the Call of Duty universe and you will be able to select one of six available classes before jumping in.
The game launched in Australia earlier this summer. We were able to sit down with Activision’s Vice President of Mobile, Chris Plummer, to talk about the company’s intentions with CoD Mobile, its general position on mobile games, and the ever-contentious microtransactions present in gaming.
