The wait is almost over. Call of Duty: Mobile will be launching on October 1st and will be featured on both Android and iOS at launch. Call of Duty: Mobile is the franchise's first serious attempt at bringing the game to mobile devices in a form that rivals the console experience. With the ever-growing power of phones and the mobile gaming industry generating massive amounts of money, it seemed natural that Call of Duty would want to make a full-fledged multiplayer experience available at the touch of a finger.

Positive buzz has been associated with the new Call of Duty endeavor, stating that it's a solid game that brings the Call of Duty experience straight to your phone. For being a mobile game, it's well designed and capable of running smoothly through your most intense battles. While the controls aren't as slick and intuitive as they are for the standard franchise games, they are fairly well done for mobile gaming and shouldn't prove too difficult to get used to.
Call of Duty: Mobile is free-to-play and will be a multiplayer experience, with no indication if a story-mode will be included (most likely not). The multi-player games will include the signature online Call of Duty play with a variety of match modes available. Iconic maps are set to come back, though a full map list hasn't been released.
Call of Duty: Black-Ops 4 succeeded in bringing the battle royale mode (Blackout) to the franchise and Call of Duty: Mobile will be looking to do the same. The mode will have up to 100 players involved - the standard for battle royale games - and will feature a unique and compelling map to compete on. It's a big draw for fans of battle royale games and fans of Blackout in Black-Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Mobile has the chance to be incredibly successful for the franchise and a staple of mobile gaming going forward. Call of Duty is a franchise that already has a broad appeal and a massive audience, but the potential to expand is there with the new free-to-play game. Luckily, fans of the franchise and those curious don't have much longer to wait as Call of Duty: Mobile will launch on October 1st.
