Call of Duty Warzone was released for previous generation consoles and PCs in the early days of March 2020. Fast forward to 2022, and the game has become one of the most popular battle royale games today. Since there’s a much bigger market for battle royale games in the smartphone gaming scene, it wouldn’t be too long before Call of Duty Warzone Mobile made its way here. If you were waiting for the mobile version of Warzone all this while, you’re in luck. We finally have an idea about the Call Of Duty Warzone Mobile game, thanks to gameplay leaks. this article will go through everything we know so far about the game, including the recent gameplay leak.
What is Call Of Duty Warzone Mobile?
Call of Duty Warzone is a free-to-play battle royale game for PCs and consoles. Since Apex Legends, one of its biggest competitors, was ported to Android and iOS recently, there was a good chance that Warzone would follow suit. Thankfully, it seems like Call of Duty Warzone will come to smartphones sometime soon. For the uninitiated, Call Of Duty Warzone will feature the same gameplay that made Call of Duty Mobile such a huge hit. Of course, it will have more additions, with refined gameplay, polished graphics, and newer maps. You can expect the same solid foundation in Call of Duty Warzone Mobile that made you love the first game.
Warzone Mobile Screenshots Leaked
Recently, the online gaming community was shown an unintentional glimpse of Warzone Mobile. The game had already been announced by Activision on March 10, 2022. However, it wasn’t expected to be shown or released anytime before 2023. Fortunately for us gamers, CoD_Perseus, a reputed Call of Duty leaker on Twitter, had posted leaked screenshots and gameplay of the game. However, Activision was quick to remove any content related to the leaks, and the tweets from the leaker are now “withheld” due to copyright issues.
What was in the screenshots and the video leak?
Let’s talk about the first tweet, since it contained a video of the gameplay. The gameplay showed a character jumping from the plane, looting, and being involved in an intense gunfight. Throughout the video, the words “Currently in development – not representative of final quality” were present. The graphics shown were definitely an improvement over Call of Duty Mobile. Of course, this is bound to change as the game is refined and optimised for all ranges of smartphone hardware.
Moreover, it seems like the leaked gameplay was staged in Verdansk. This is a popular map that was discontinued after Caldera came to the console version of Warzone at the end of 2021. It seems like all the fan favourite spots in Verdansk will return, with a new and upgraded look.
The second tweet was a series of screenshots that showed the return of the Gulag system. It looks like Activision are putting all the popular remnants of the original game into the mobile port. Overall, Warzone Mobile looks very similar to its parent game.
Warzone Mobile release date
Call of Duty Warzone Mobile’s release date hasn’t been announced yet by Activision. Warzone 2 will release sometime in 2023, however. So, there’s a good chance that the mobile version of Warzone will release side-by-side. Regardless, this is pure conjecture at this point. We’ll have to wait until some official announcements are made.
Can you play Warzone Mobile?
Unfortunately, you can’t play Warzone Mobile yet. The Closed Alpha test is currently underway, however. These tests are meant to fine-tune the game and identify as many bugs in the game as possible. The tests were made available to people through private invitations. For more information on the Closed Alpha tests, you can check the tweet below:
Will the game have crossplay?
Despite having the same name, there’s not much information on whether the game will have crossplay. While it makes sense for the game to have crossplay with PC, PlayStation, and Xbox players, it can be difficult to achieve. Bear in mind that crossplay requires a lot of hardware compatibility, even with more powerful hardware on PCs and consoles. So, to make this happen with a mobile game of this nature can be quite a challenge.
Warzone Mobile platforms
Considering the fact that Activision has to compete with EA over the success of Apex Legends Mobile, they’ll have to target a large audience. Basically, this entails that the game will be available on both Android and iOS platforms. However, since it’s a mobile game of the newer generation hardware, it might not be compatible with older phones. We’ll have to wait until Activision releases the official system requirements of the game.
For now, it doesn’t seem like we’ve got too much information on the game. We know that it’s headed to mobile platforms, it’ll feature great graphics and the classic Verdansk map. Moreover, the Closed Alpha testing for the game is underway. So, we might have to wait for the next few months until some official announcement is made. Since Warzone 2 will be released in 2023, you can expect Warzone Mobile to launch by then. Overall, it looks like a game all battle royale and shooting game enthusiasts can look forward to, with solid gunplay and endless content!
