Straight out of The Blast Furnace, Activision‘s new mobile development studio, comes a new addition to the established Call of Duty franchise: Strike Team. To be launched for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad, Call of Duty fans can take their combat on the the go. Optimised for mobile and tablet glass mechanics, players are offered a choice of how to play. Controlling a squad of up to four highly trained Strike Team members, each with customizable skills and loadouts, the in-game view can be switched from classic first-person action, to a top-down, third-person perspective. This provides a full range of both action combat and tactical decision making.
Call of Duty: Strike Team features both a new, story-driven single player campaign and a replayable Survival Mode. Just as in other Call of Duty titles, Survival Mode will feature many of the franchise’s weapons, perks, ranks, and prestige levels. Players may also compete with family, friends, and other players for leaderboard domination. Additionally, players with an existing Call of Duty account can sign in with their credentials to Call of Duty: Strike Team for exclusive, in-game bonuses.
Mark Washbrook (Studio Head, The Blast Furnace) said:
“Call of Duty: Strike Team is all about giving a single player experience that is unlike anything else in the Call of Duty world in a way that matches the interests of players on-the-go. By giving fans the option to play in either first-person or third-person views, and to switch between them on the fly, we’ve really opened the doors for gamers to have a fun and entertaining gameplay experience with Call of Duty: Strike Team, because they can play the game the way they want.”
Call of Duty: Strike Team is available now on the App Store and will receive an Android release later in the year. For more information, visit the official site and Facebook page. Check out the screenshots below and get ready to kill on the go.
