The publisher outlined the features included in Call of Duty Mobile Zombies. This limited-time experience takes you to Shi No Numa, a bite-sized version of a classic Zombies map found in 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War. You must reach player level five to unlock Zombies.
There are two ways to play Zombies in Call of Duty Mobile: Raid and Survival. Survival is an endless horde mode reminiscent of a traditional Zombies experience. Raid is a new game type for Call of Duty Zombies, where you face a boss at the end of a set number of waves. Both modes can be played in Hardcore, with the increased difficulty yielding new rewards and challenges. Further, Raid comes with two difficulty settings, Normal and Heroic, that change the number of rounds and buff the final boss.
Zombies in Call of Duty Mobile is a familiar experience for those who’ve played Zombies in past Call of Duty titles. You start with a knife and pistol, earn points by killing zombies and boarding up windows, purchase weapons, ammo, Perk-a-Colas and coins, and repeat until you either survive or fall to the zombie horde. New to the formula are buffs, “upgradeable benefits” that do anything from increasing your damage to speeding up your reload time.
Completing rounds in Raid and Survival nets you rewards as well. You are rewarded at the end of every game for surviving three full rounds, with up to five earned per session. Call of Duty Mobile Zombies is playable with up to three of your friends in online cooperative.
Call of Duty Mobile has had the biggest mobile game launch in history, with over 100 million people downloading the game within its first week. The game doesn’t look to be slowing down either, as its continued downloads now place it behind Pokemon Go. We awarded the title an 8/10 in our Call of Duty Mobile review, saying, “Its flexible and easy-to-use control scheme mitigates the lack of controller support, and its celebration of the best modes and maps the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series have produced makes it a pleasure to line up game after game.”
