Call of Duty Mobile was released at the right time.
With the success of games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite, 2019 was the perfect time to launch Call of Duty Mobile. The game already had a huge gaming community due to its legacy ranging from computer console titles.
The game follows the traditional mobile game model, being free to play but offering a panoply of in-app purchase choices. Like other titles, COD Mobile is constantly being updated with news, from quests to items to use during the game.
Not everything is pink, however. Its initial release garnered a lot of complaints from players about bugs and lag in general. For now, these problems have been resolved but there are still some gaps in the game.
