Call of Duty: Mobile adds legendary ‘Zombies’ mode
Call of Duty: Mobile has swiftly become one of the most popular and successful apps on the market.
The title notched up a remarkable 100 million downloads within its first week of availability as it looked set to dethrone rivals PUBG and Fortnite, which had 28 million and 22.5 million downloads in their first week.
At the time, Randy Nelson – head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower – described it as “by far the largest mobile game launch in history in terms of the player base that’s been built in the first week”.
While it had its initial teething problems, the title has maintained interest and the latest addition is bound to ramp this up once again.
Call of Duty: World at War, released for console and PC back in 2008, was one of the franchise’s best for both its campaign and multiplayer modes.
One game type that shone above the rest was ‘Zombies’, where groups of players were tasked with surviving a lengthy undead invasion which reportedly went on for as long as the player/s lived.
The mode was brought back in several later entries and has even been on smartphones before, but its latest home is on the newly launched title.
It features a modified version of the ‘Shi No Numa’ map which first debuted as downloadable content (DLC) for the Treyarch-developed World at War.
Up to four players can compete against the Nazi zombies beginning with a knife and pistol.
Like the original iterations, they must board up windows to keep the enemy at bay and earn points based on attacking and defending which can then be spent on unlocking additional areas and upgrading their weapons.
New to the mobile title is the ‘Enhancement Device’ which offers buffs like increased damage and quicker reloading speeds.
Alongside this, there is also a ‘Raid’ mode which presents gamers with eight to 12 rounds before an alien-inspired boss appears.
Activision announced that it would only be available for a limited time but this is just the first of many Zombies experiences, according to Twinfinite.
