Tencent and Activision China today announced that Raven Software has now taken over development and become the lead for the free to play China-exclusive Call of Duty Online title.
Raven worked on Black Ops series DLC, MW3 DLC, and Ghosts development.
Also, the closed beta for Call of Duty Online will be updated in June with new features and content.
But this summer’s beta will feature “surprising” new content and a better-optimized version of the game. That includes a “new” story mission (pictured above), but Tencent’s description of it makes it clear that this is pretty much exactly the same as the ship infiltration mission that kicks off Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The updated game also features a revamped zombie mode, now apparently with robot zombies, and a “backpack” system that allows players to bring their favorite weapons into every game mode.
