The game, which appears to be simply titled Call of Duty: Mobile, is a free-to-play game that promises "heart-pounding, adrenaline-fueled action of Call of Duty with you wherever you go". The game's beta is set to launch sometime this Summer. The popular first-person shooter video game from Activision is now open for registration. The franchise has sold a whopping 250 million units worldwide since making its debut in 2003, and continues to be a best-seller year after year. Hearthstone also has a large mobile audience, which has helped the game grow to new heights, so it makes sense for Call of Duty to follow. It'll be exclusive to Android and iOS, and feature multiple game modes like Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Free-For-All, in iconic maps like Nuketown, Crash, Hijacked, and more. The game will also support Ranked Mode play and clans. Controls are the first thing that come to mind. It showcases impressive graphics, familiar gameplay, some of the game's score streaks, and more. There has been a few over the years, including Call of Duty: Strike Team and Call of Duty: Heroes.

Based on the gameplay trailer, it looks like Call of Duty: Mobile will rival at least the Xbox 360, graphically.

Prior to this official announcement, Activision was testing Call of Duty Mobile with limited users in Australia. However, we can only hope that this "unique Call of Duty battle royale experience" will be available for all players without incurring any fees. Instead, it appears the game will include different parts of several games, which could be a welcome surprise to Call of Duty fans. That's a very strong indication that a battle royale mode will be included.

Call of Duty Mobile is described in the press release as "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".

Fearing slower growth, Fed says no rate hikes this year
The reaction is being fueled by media reports of USA concerns that China is pushing back against American demands in trade talks. The central bank also said it would stop reducing the size of its balance sheet by the end of September, sooner than expected.
