- The new Android game Call of Duty: Global Operations is live now in select countries.
- It appears the new MMO tactical warfare game is in the middle of a soft launch.
- Call of Duty: Siege soft-launched in October 2016 but was canceled before release, so there’s no guarantee this game will get a global launch.
If you’ve been hankering for a new Call of Duty game to play on your Android device, you might be in luck. It appears Call of Duty: Global Operations is available now to download from the Google Play Store in select countries, via VentureBeat.
So far, it seems the game is only live in Australia and the Philippines. This suggests Call of Duty: Global Operations is in the middle of a soft launch.
The official description of the game from its Play Store listing describes it as a “tactical MMO PvP game” in which you “control armies and wage global conflict.” The gameplay video below gives you a better idea of what to expect:
The plot of the game is described as such:
The discovery of a highly toxic and weaponizable element Nuclium NM (72) threatens to upset global order. As governments and private operators fight to control the limited Nuclium supply, the world begins to descend into anarchy. At the center of the conflict is GLOBUS, a malicious corporation hell bent on using weaponized Nuclium to bring the world under its dominion.
The only thing standing in the way is YOU.
This isn’t the first time a Call of Duty game has soft-launched on Google Play — the sci-fi game Call of Duty: Siege soft-launched in October 2016. However, that game never left the soft-launch phase and thus never received a global release. It’s possible Call of Duty: Global Operations could suffer the same fate.
If you live in Australia or the Philippines, give the game a try by clicking the button below. For those of us in the rest of the world, we’ll have to wait for a wide rollout!
