Call of Duty Mobile has been a smashing success for Activision. The game has topped 300 million downloads in its first year.
“With more than 300 million downloads in the first year, Call of Duty Mobile has gone from 11 maps at launch to 23, from one Multiplayer mode to 27, and the main Battle Royale map has increased by roughly 50% in size,” Activision says in an email to Game Freaks 365.
“The game also launched a year ago with about 200 primary and secondary weapons and has since expanded that number to 1,400, and lastly, the game also features 182 playable characters in-game,” the publisher adds.
Now Call of Duty: Mobile is celebrating its first anniversary with the launch of a brand-new season and a new social space for players to hang out. Call of Duty Mobile Anniversary is available now on both Android and iOS, and includes “the biggest injection of content ever.”
The latest season kicks off with a new battle royale map: Alcatraz from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Blackout mode. The Club is a new social space for players. Players can hang out, socialize, and play various mini-games.
“In addition to the monthly Battle Pass, there are of course new maps, items, and characters, as well as a full month of seasonal events to keep players engaged and entertained,” Activision says.
Looking back at year one
As for the impressive first year, the success is at least partially due to Activision regularly adding new content including fan-favorite maps like Rust. The game is even making a splash in the esports scene. This past spring, the Call of Duty Mobile World Championship had a $1 million prize pool.
