Is it possible to play Call of Duty Mobile on PC or Mac?
Call of Duty Mobile is a free-to-play online shooter inspired by the entire COD series for IOS and Android devices. The game gives an opportunity to feel the beauty of modern FPS gaming similar to Call of Duty: Warzone right on a smartphone. Players are able to choose between two major modes – Battle Royal with 100-player survival experience or Traditional Multiplayer with 5v5 team-based clashes. The first will bring you into a lonesome journey to scavenge through various locations, combat your enemies to gain experience, and climb to the top of the winners. You can also team up with friends or former enemies to make your way fighting into the victory spot easier. It is important though to stay vigilant and keep your eye sharp to not get betrayed by any of your teammates. The second, though, will require you to show your corporate skills with 4 players set on a team to conquer new chunks of the map and outsmart your opponents during the match.
