Activision Details Call of Duty Mobile Multiplayer Mode Ahead of BETA

Get ready for all-out warfare with your friends on the go!  Activision has just revealed everything you can expect for Call of Duty Mobile‘s Multiplayer mode in a blog post.  Here’s the gist…

Last month, Activision announced plans to experience Call of Duty in a unique way, on your phone.  It’s called Call of Duty Mobile, and from the initial trailer, it looked pretty sweet.

With Beta Testing for Call of Duty Mobile just around the corner, Activision has released more information on the pint-sizes shooter through the Activision Blog site.

While they plan on releasing more game modes, the blog post focuses on the beloved Multiplayer aspect of Call of Duty and everything they plan on bringing to the Mobile version.  The blog post spends some time discussing the convenient Main Menu, followed by how you’ll have complete customization on the controls, giving you a better chance at victory.

Furthermore, Call of Duty Mobile will feature 5 loadout types, and they’re exactly the same as the loadouts you’ve come to know in the console version of the game.  You’ll still have a Primary, Secondary, and all the augmentation possibilities and skins you expect.  Plus, there will be the option of choosing a brutal Weapon Skill.

In addition to those features, Call of Duty Mobile will include 6 confirmed characters:

Alex Mason, the CIA operative, special agent, and Marine Force Recon Captain (retired), from the Call of Duty®: Black Ops franchise.

David “Section” Mason, son of Alex Mason, SEAL Team member and J-SOC Commander from Call of Duty®: Black Ops II.

Thomas A. Merrick, a Captain, former Navy SEAL, and Commander of the Ghosts, from Call of Duty®: Ghosts.

Simon “Ghost” Riley, the skull-textured, balaclava-wearing British special forces lieutenant from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare 2.

John “Soap” MacTavish, the British special forces demolitions and sniping expert from the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare franchise.

John Price, the special forces captain with the Bravo Six alias from the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare franchise.

What match types will you use these characters in, though?

            Free-For-All*: The classic every-player-for-themselves deathmatch.

            Frontline**: After spawning at a team base, defeat players on the opposing team.

            Team Deathmatch**: The classic defeat-players-on-the-opposing-team mode.

            Hardpoint**: Capture and hold the hardpoint to earn points.

            Domination**: Capture and hold the designated positions to gain points.

Every game except for Free-For-All will support 10 players.  Free-For-All will only support 8. Now, let’s find out about the confirmed maps.

Crossfire: “Small desert town. Intense interior fighting and strong firefights.” Bring your sniper rifle in this compact street fight; the Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare map is revisited, with cramped and confined structures (where shotguns are a good choice) are flanked by two taller buildings at each end of this Z-shaped thoroughfare.

Standoff: “Border town between China and Kyrgyzstan. Classic engagements and desintations to fight over.”Also known to Black Ops III fans as Outlaw, this map which originally debuted in Black Ops II offers a variety of tight hiding spots, upper structures that favor the long-range weapon wrangler, and a main compound with a walled perimeter to infiltrate in a variety of gameplay styles.

Crash: “Downed Sea Knight in a desert town. Fantastic team games.” A classic Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare map, this well-loved map features blind corners, a crashed chopper, rusty barrels, narrow streets overlooked by shelled-out buildings as well as rooftop sniping positions. Expect quick and deadly action during Multiplayer matches here.

Killhouse: “Speedball style warehouse interior. Great for small teams.” If you’re wanting an almost symmetrical map with a central lookout tower, and have a penchant for rapid takedowns where shotguns can take precedence, practice on Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare’s Killhouse. This warehouse offers multiple wooden and concrete hiding spots, and almost constant action.

Firing Range: “Military practice facility. Hectic Domination games.” Journey to Cuba in this reworking of an original Black Ops map, seen most recently in Black Ops 4. Corrugated and wooden sheds, long, ruined structures, a muddy courtyard and rusting equipment, abandoned in the hot sun, make this a classic and chaotic map.
