Earlier this year, Activision announced that the would be change their vision of what they will do for mobile games by delivering a new tailored Call of Duty experience specially for iOS. Today, The Blast Furnace released this new Call of Duty experience for mobile.

The Blast Furnace’s Studio Head, Mark Washbrook, said:

“Call of Duty: Strike Team is all about giving a single player experience that is unlike anything else in the Call of Duty world in a way that matches the interests of players on-the-go,” said Mark Washbrook, Studio Head of The Blast Furnace. “By giving fans the option to play in either first-person or third-person views, and to switch between them on the fly, we’ve really opened the doors for gamers to have a fun and entertaining gameplay experience with Call of Duty: Strike Team, because they can play the game the way they want.”

Developed by Activision’s mobile team studio formed last year called The Blast Furnace, the game is called ‘Call of Duty: Strike Team’. This game features a first and third person Call of Duty experience for mobile gamers.

Fully customize your squad’s loadouts and abilities before leading them into combat in diverse gameplay environments. Call of Duty®: Strike Team features the revolutionary ability to dynamically switch from run-and-gun first-person view to reconnaissance and coordinated squad attacks in third-person view.

The year is 2020. Tensions run high amongst the world’s superpowers. In a surprise attack, the U.S. finds themselves in a war with an unknown enemy. Your mission is to lead a Joint Special Operations Team in a global effort to hunt down those responsible.

The game features to sets of solo play modes:

CAMPAIGN MODE: Experience an immersive single-player campaign full of epic, cinematic moments in diverse locations around the world.

SURVIVAL MODE: Put your skills to the test as you fight off waves of increasingly difficult enemies. Compete against family, friends and the Call of Duty®: Strike Team community for leaderboard domination.

You can purchase the app now for $6.99 on iOS. The app works for iPhone 4S or later, iPad 3rd generation or later, and iPod Touch 5th generation or later. The app will be available on Android devices later this fall. More announcements regarding that are coming soon.

    iOS? $6.99? what???

    • Keshav Bhat

      That’s a reasonable price.

      • Bigi345

        For a small game sure but for an iOS which is even smaller it’s quite expensive at least for me. i would say it shoud be $4.99 Max

        • xx420xx

          it literally makes no difference you poor piece of shit lmao

          • Bigi345

            $2 out of $60 is small but $2 out of $7 that’s a lot. Really you’re calling me poor? Just because i live in a developing country

          • xx420xx

            its not any different its the same amount of money LMAO

          • Bigi345

            You’re not getting what i’m trying to say. So Never mind then

        • It’s a 2 dollar difference. Take a look back at 1987 where LJN were selling their games for $60.

  • Mr C

    Wow! This looks amazing! Downloading as we speak!

  • The Flash

    this explains why, BO1 Zombs on iOS hasnt been updated for over a year, we had COTD in july 2012, and we havent had any updates since because they’ve been doing this, i want my shangri-la, moon and five, they’re the best maps and none of them are on iOS

  • No iPhone 4? WHAT!

    • Keshav Bhat

      Not enough processing power with A4 chip apparently. :-/

    “The game features two innovative modes: Campaign Mode and Survival Mode”

    Pffft, that’s not innovating.

    $ 6.99 is steep price on the app store. I hope the game have good A.I and a large re-play value.

    • The screenshots look beautiful

    • Keshav Bhat

      This is a complete ground up development for a Call of Duty game for iOS experience. $6.99 isn’t a steep price at all. If we want better games on mobile, we have to pay a little more to gain that good experience.

      Look at XCOM on iOS. $19.99 to buy. It’s been successful. You can’t judge this game without playing it.

        You can’t judge this game without playing it.

        Personal experience, I can’t. Impressions on the information I have received, I can. Gamers do this countless times on gameplay trailers or leaks. They form an opinion based on the information they received which impact their current view of the game. This can be the subject of changing as more information is released, issues are clarified or better yet, the final version of the game is out on the market.

        The first thing I caught my eye is the bare-bone description of an innovative Campaign Mode and Survival Mode. The article didn’t go in-depth of the innovating modes and since these modes are very common, I cast a shadow of doubt on that sentence. Since I expect to see those two modes in action on Youtube and other websites, my opinion will most likely change.

        For the $ 6.99 price tag, as long as the two modes are decent and have good replay value, then the price is reasonable. If the campaign is woefully short(as in Black Ops: Declassified short) and Survival feels generic then I don’t agree with the price. With that questionable price on a mobile game, I expect good value and above-average standards.

  • Super_Deluxe

    I want this on Android!

  • StupidDOGY

    I NEED THIS ON ANDROID

  • David Sync

    I would have preferred the zombies for Black Ops 2

  • ​​

    assume this wont run on my nokia. i got tetris tho

    • Sam Brown

      I’m hoping it does come to WP8 soon though… surely Microsoft can pull some strings.

    • Guest

      What a stupid assumption

  • they really did not press this game very much.. .. you want it for android then make some kind of poll and pass it around.

  • MeisseN

    Looks like a BO2 Strike Force mode ripoff with graphics worse than gameloft’s Modern Combat 3 and no support for iPhone 4 which makes no sense (MC4’s got much better graphics and running generally well on iPhone 4) and selling at a price of $6.99 with IAP…………

  • osaid

    i think modern combat 4 is better. COD is for consoles not tablets

  • Looks kind of lame to be honest.
