First Gameplay Trailer Uploaded for Call of Duty Online
A gameplay trailer has popped up for Call of Duty Online, the free-to-play title which was announced last July by Activision and Tencent.
The game is in development specifically for the Chinese audience, with seemingly no plans to bring it over to other regions. Call of Duty Online is going to be based on the Modern Warfare titles, where the game will include maps and settings from the original Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 games.
A microtransaction model featured inside will allow players to purchase or rent in-game items. The game itself is said to feature the Hero Ops single-player campaign, Co-Op Survival Mode, competitive multiplayer, and the newly created, China exclusive Cyborgs mode.
This is going to be the first time that China experiences an official taste of Call of Duty. The player-base there have mostly been into clones of the franchise, due to a ban on video game consoles which has been around for China for more than a decade.
Earlier this year, Call of Duty Online entered open beta. Call of Duty Online will test the waters of one of the largest market for games and see if the audience there will bite the same way the west has for each installment in the franchise.
