Call of Duty games are super exciting, especially when big companies like Activision, Tencent Games, Valve, and Infinity Ward develop them. Call of Duty, also known as COD, is a famous series with awesome first-person shooter games. In the past, these games were mostly for consoles and PCs until COD Mobile was released. But, one game that has got a lot of attention from mobile gamers is Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile. It was released on March 10, 2020, for consoles and PCs and it is announced for mobile gamers. So, let’s find out everything we know about COD Warzone Mobile including its gameplay, leaks, and more,
What is Call Of Duty: Warzone Mobile?
Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is a first-person shooting game. It is a multiplayer game which means that you will get to play with players from different parts of the world. The game emphasizes more on the Battle Royale aspect in which 120 players are deployed onto a battlefield. You can form teams of four players known as a squad or you can form teams of two players known as a duo. Just like any other Battle Royal, CODW Mobile has the same concept of being the last team alive on the battlefield to win the game.
Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is the mobile version of the popular game Call of Duty Warzone. It was initially released in limited areas, and some YouTubers confirmed that there were two game modes available at that time. Activision seemed more focused on the Battle Royale mode, which was the only option during the first limited release in September 2022.
They emphasised that the main priority for COD Warzone Mobile would be the Battle Royale, and Multiplayer mode would be added as additional content. Eventually, the Multiplayer mode was introduced in a later update in December 2022.
This game mode is a classic style that requires both teamwork and skill in the right amounts. It begins with players aboard a helicopter, and they must decide when and where to eject strategically. Skydiving and parachuting down to the ground is the next step. Once on land, the players need to scavenge for better equipment like ammo, armor plates, kill streaks, and field upgrades that are scattered all around the battlefield. To win the game, you’ll need to use your gun-fighting skills and be the last team standing. The battlefield can hold a maximum of 120 players, all of whom will be real-time players after the global launch; there won’t be any bots, as confirmed by Activision.
After the December 2022 update, two exciting multiplayer game modes were introduced: Team Deathmatch and Domination. In these modes, before you jump into a match, you get to customize your loadout. You can choose a primary and a secondary weapon that you excel with, and don’t forget to pick tactical and lethal equipment for your loadout too. Once you’ve set up your gear, you’re all set to dive into the action-packed multiplayer gameplay. Unlike Battle Royale, these games are shorter but packed with intense action.
The Warzone Mobile trailer made its debut in September 2022, and it prominently displayed various Battle Royale elements. The trailer featured skydiving from planes and intense battlefield landings, hinting that the game would focus heavily on the Battle Royale mode. Additionally, it provided a glimpse of the diverse array of vehicles available, including helicopters, ATVs, trucks, and SUVs. With a player count of 120 per match, the game promises to be expansive and action-packed, offering an immersive experience for mobile gamers.
Leaks So Far
COD Warzone Mobile is a well-known game and leaks are obviously expected. the gameplay graphics aren’t much attention-grabbing. The graphics aren’t yet tuned up because the game is still developing and the gameplay mechanics are being focused on first of all. Here we’ve listed must-know facts for the players that are waiting for the global launch of this game.
- Several leaks suggest that there are going to be 15-20 customizable operators.

Release Date, Early Access, and Requirements
The App Store currently shows a release date of November 1, 2023, for an app. However, the Co-Studio Head, Chris Plummer, has stated that no official announcement has been made regarding the release date. The November 1 date is actually required for pages that offer pre-orders, and it’s not the exact release date. And it’s hard to predict any release date as of now.
At the Call of Duty Next event in September 2022, a group of content creators had the opportunity to test out Warzone Mobile. However, early access to the game was only available in a few regions. Chris Plummer shared his perspective on why this limited-release strategy was valuable. The developers chose smaller regions for the early access because they wanted a substantial number of players while also ensuring a manageable crowd. This approach allowed them to thoroughly test live services, fix bugs, and assess the game’s performance before the wider release.
Warzone Mobile is being optimized to run on several devices. However, these are the basic requirements for seamless gaming:
- Apple: iPhone 8+ or better with 4GB+ RAM.
- Android: Adreno 618 or better with 6GB+ RAM.
The game is available to pre-register on both Play Store and App Store.
The mobile gaming industry is huge, and gamers have high hopes for Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile. The previous game, Call of Duty: Mobile, was incredibly popular, so people expect the same from the new release. The developers are aware of this and are working hard to create a well-crafted game. Official updates regarding the development of the game are provided by Chris Plummer(Co-Studio Head) on the game’s official YouTube channel.
