Console gamers may be stoked about the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Apocalypse DLC and Call of Duty Ghosts, but iOS gamers have reason to be excited now as well. Activision today announced that Call of Duty Strike Team for iPhone and iPad is available now for $6.99. There’s also an iPod Touch version, if that’s more your speed.
Call of Duty Strike Team for iPhone and iPad features a new, story-driven single-player campaign and a single-player Survival Mode. Both the Campaign and Survival Mode in Call of Duty Strike Team include many of the franchise’s weapons, perks, ranks and prestige levels. The reason? To dominate family, friends and other players for leaderboard supremacy.
Players with an existing Call of Duty account can sign-in Call of Duty Strike Team for iPhone using their existing COD credentials. Among the content you’ll get when existing players login are in-game bonuses exclusive to existing COD members. Players can register for a Call of Duty account for free on the web.
Call of Duty Strike Team for iPhone and iPad is optimized for the mobile and tablet platforms. As players control a squad of up to four Strike Team members — each with customizable skills and loadouts — the in-game view can be seamlessly switched from classic first-person action to a top-down, third-person perspective. The change will be a nice change of pace and may entice some non-COD players to the game, as it provides a range of both action combat and tactical decision making.
Call of Duty Strike Team is the first Call of Duty mobile title from The Blast Furnace. The studio is Activision’s new mobile development studio and is led by veteran developers Mark Washbrook, from Rockstar London, and Rockstar Leeds legend Gordon Hall.
The game is available for $6.99 right now on the App Store. But fret not: Call of Duty Strike Team for iPhone and iPad isn’t the only version coming. Activision promises that an Android version of Call of Duty Strike Team “will also be available later this fall.”
