With the intense battle between fans of Fortnite and PUBG, there is yet come another brave challenger who wants to enter the heated competition; COD Mobile.
Call of Duty Mobile
Call of Duty Mobile is a free-to-play shooter game developed by Tencent studio Timi and published by Activision for Android and iOS. It was released globally in October 2019. This game already received 35 million downloads within 3 days of its release. And after one week, this game had exceeded 100 million downloads, officially making it the largest mobile game launch in history.
As if for now, all modes are multiplayer modes which include battle royale similar to PUBG and Fortnite with a slight twist. Activision promised to bring more content into COD Mobile in the future with additional modes to play and not limited to multiplayer only. This game is free-to-play with in-app purchases for weapons and skins. There is also a Premium Battle Pass in which the system works similarly to PUBG and Fortnite.
For the gameplay modes, there are several sets of gameplay modes that you could pick to play. The multiplayer modes so far are Search & Destroy, Frontline, Domination, and Team Deathmatch. All of these modes are team-based, with 5 players VS 5 players.
Other modes to these are of course a Battle Royale. The game matches up to 100 players on the same map with an option to play solo, two-player or in teams of four.
As mentioned before, all the gameplay works similar to PUBG and Fortnite but with a slight twist. Meaning in COD Mobile Battle Royale, there are different classes to choose before entering the battle; Defender, Mechanic, Scout, Clown, Medic or Ninja. Each one of the classes has its own ability to use to bring an advantage to the battlefield.
Does COD Mobile the best?
Will COD Mobile finally end the popularity of PUBG or Fortnite? Well, we highly doubt it will. PUBG and Fortnite have been on the scene for quite some time and COD Mobile is only newcomers and people really enjoying the hype of new things and shiny.
Yes, it is without a doubt COD Mobile has better graphics from the other two games but it still needs to bring other things into the table to make gamers stay into it. It means future updates need to entice people to stay and keep playing COD Mobile.
These three games have their own appeals and it draws a different kind of fans towards them. These healthy competition among game developers are good as they will fight to bring the best content towards us. And these good quality games will end up benefiting us the most; the gamers.
