Call of Duty: Mobile – the long-overdue free-to-play mobile game spin-off of the franchise – launched on Android and iOS last Monday, October 1. We already knew it was going to be popular beforehand – apart from the fact that it’s the enormously popular Call of Duty series going properly on mobile, analyst Daniel Ahmad noted that it had over 16 million pre-registrations in China. This is despite the fact that it had, at the time, not yet been approved for release there.

You might have heard that a Call of Duty mobile game is on the way, due to arrive on IOS and Android on October 1. However, it looks like mobile might not be the only way to play – GameLoop, an Android emulator, will reportedly let you play the game on your PC with mouse and keyboard support at the game’s launch.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is about to see the hefty Dark Divide update drop, bringing a new mode to the game’s battle royale, Blackout, that is all about tearing around in armoured vehicles – and that includes tanks. The new game mode, called Heavy Metal Heroes, will be a limited-time addition and see you take the wheels – and handlebars – of trucks, tanks, and more to take out your opposition.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 developer Treyarch has just introduced a patch for the multiplayer FPS which contains some interesting new features – one of which is already drawing ire from some its players. This update adds something called Blackjack’s Stashes to the game’s battle royale mode, Blackout – but they introduce an element that members of its playerbase allege is basically a pay-to-win feature.
Black Ops 4 got its Blackout mode – a Call of Duty-style take on battle royale – and it did not get a campaign. There’s been speculation about exactly why that is ever since Treyarch confirmed the absence of a single-player campaign, and a new report breaks down exactly what happened to the original story mode and why it was replaced with Blackout.
Next year’s annual Call of Duty will be a Black Ops title, with Treyarch taking the lead role in development, according to a new report based on sources familiar with the series’ development. Activision has taken developers Raven and Sledgehammer out of the lead development role and directed Treyarch to use existing work to develop a new title in the Black Ops series.
The latest Humble Monthly Bundle is available for purchase, and as usual the selection is headlined by a notable triple-A release. This month’s early unlock is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition, a slightly pared-back version of the game that includes all standard multiplayer modes and battle royale – just no zombies.
Based on early teasers, we knew Alcatraz was coming to Blackout in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. But news that it’ll be a fully featured new map for the battle royale – not just a small addition to the existing map – comes as much more of a surprise. On top of that, another free trial for Blackout is coming, and this one will last the whole month. Before you ask, there’s no indication that any of this is an April Fools gag.
Activision is bringing Call of Duty: Mobile to the west. In a trailer released last night, the publisher announced the arrival of the game in a trailer which you can check out further down this article, showing off plenty of game modes and hinting at even more.
Activision is reportedly working towards a Call of Duty esports league with a similar format to Blizzard’s Overwatch League. Sources speaking to ESPN said that the sales process for a franchised league with city-based teams has begun, and spots are apparently going for $25 million (£18.9 million).
