Well, Call of Duty: Mobile has been around for some time. But these modern multiplayer games are constantly introducing new features that have to be tested. No wonder that some time before Season 6 starts, Activision launched testing it through beta versions. Gamers are curious to taste new features before others can do it now.
According to the official post on Reddit, the new season will introduce two new maps, named Slums and Stacks. Little is known about them except names, though. The gameplay will be enriched with new operator skills, perks, and scorestreaks. New weapons will be here, too: at least grenades are already confirmed.
As for Zombies mode, it’s been rumored for some time. But this time, it’s not coming, at least, not right now. Instead, the beta players will be the first to enjoy the optimized Battle Royale mode. There might be nothing new, as Battle Royale is no more a new thing. Rather it is a must for almost any multiplayer shooter. Still, it’s interesting how the experience has been improved.
The beta version is available on both iOS and Android (logically, as cross-platform matching needs to be tested too). Android users need to simply download and launch an APK file, while those on iOS need to participate in the Test Flight program by downloading the eponymous app from the App Store. The number of testers required for each platform, though, is limited to 30K, so you might be just too late… until the new testing round starts. Along with playing the game, the chosen few will be interviewed and surveyed about various aspects of the beta experience.
The size of the beta app is about 2 GB, similar to the stable version. Along with new maps, modes, and weapons, it also brings in some minor UI improvements and – certainly – some bugs the developers want to catch during this beta testing.
