Call of Duty: Legends of War’s soft launch brings multiplayer and zombies to Android

The FPS Call of Duty mobile game’s alpha is live in Australia, and it has multiplayer and zombies.

Call of Duty: Legends of War is the series’ latest mobile title, developed by Chinese developer Tencent, and the game’s soft launch is now live in Australia on Android.

Activision announced its partnership with Tencent back in August – via Variety – to develop a mobile title for the Chinese market. Charlie INTEL reports that Legends of War’s alpha is now live in select regions outside of China, so whether this is the same title being expanded into other markets, or a different game altogether is unknown right now.

“In Call of Duty: Legends of War, Activision combines the best maps, characters, weapons and gear from the Call of Duty universe and brings them together for the first time,” reads the description on the game’s official Facebook page.

Players can choose from iconic characters from across the franchise, including Price, and Ghost. As Charlie INTEL points out, the trailer from the Facebook page can be found as an unlisted video on the official Call of Duty YouTube account, and you can check it out below.

As is always the way with region-specific content on Android, you can download the APK file, but we’re obliged to warn you that you do so at your own risk.
