Call of Duty Mobile has just been announced by Activision and Tencent. It's described as a full COD experience on your mobile device, and will be released on both the Android and iOS platforms.
There are going to be a number of phases to actually getting the game running on your platform. First of all there's going to be a beta, followed by a full release. It's not yet known whether the Android or iOS releases will be staggered, or if they'll launch simultaneously.
Activision has also not confirmed whether the beta will be available on both of the main mobile platforms, although general registration for the beta is now open.
In this guide we're going to walk you through each stage of getting the game installed, but note that this will be a work in progress as each phase of release gets under way.
At the time of writing the first version of this article, we're at the registration phase of release. That means you can provide your details to Activision, and be the first to get notifications of when the beta is available to download.
WARNING: It's very common for high-profile mobile releases like this to attract scammers. Only provide your details directly to Activision when signing up, and resist the temptation to install any software on your phone that hasn't been released on the iOS and Android stores.
