One of the biggest gaming franchises in the world over the past decade is ready to make a big splash in the mobile market. Call of Duty: Legend of War launched in beta form in a few countries (including Australia and China) last year, and soon it will be headed to North America, South America, Europe, and other regions as Call of Duty: Mobile.

Call of Duty: Mobile is a free-to-play title, and interested players can pre-register at the official website to "stay up-to-date on all the latest intel, learn about opportunities to join future Beta tests, and get the chance to earn in-game rewards." A public beta is scheduled to launch sometime this summer, but its availability may vary by region. In the meantime, you can check out the official trailer above, and you can read Activision's overview below.

Call of Duty: Mobile is a new free-to-play game that brings together maps, modes, weapons, and characters from across the Call of Duty franchise, including Black Ops and the Modern Warfare series. Developed by Tencent's award-winning Timi studio, exclusively for Android and iOS, the game features multiple game modes pitting players in head-to-head, competitive action as they test their skills against players all around the world.

In Call of Duty: Mobile, players will experience the fluid, first-person combat of Call of Duty, fighting head-to-head in fan-favorite modes such as Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy and Free-For-All, in iconic maps from the series such as Nuketown, Crash, Hijacked and more. Along the way, players will earn and unlock classic Call of Duty characters, weapons, scorestreaks, and other gear to equip and customize their loadouts as they battle to be among the best in the world.

Published by Activision, and developed by Tencent, Call of Duty: Mobile uses the Unity real-time 3D development platform. In addition to classic multiplayer, the game features more modes of play to be announced soon.
