For a long time, PUBG MOBILE has been sitting as the dominant game in the mobile world, increasingly gathering more popularity as the days pass by. Many other games have tried to steal PUBG of its limelight but the popular battle royale online fighter has maintained itself at the top of the charts. However, that hasn’t stopped other studios from trying and Activision is the latest one with its renowned Call of Duty series for Android and iOS.
Call of Duty Mobile is the latest title under Tencent’s umbrella and has been introduced as a new game that offers the thrills of the PC versions of the game while also dipping its foot in the viral battle royale mode. I even played it for a while and it seems like a breath of fresh air after being into PUBG for so long. The graphics are great and the gameplay does offer a variety of options. While it’s too early to say, it seems that Call of Duty Mobile could be the next big thing in the world of mobile games.
If you have been tempted to try it out, the game is available to the world in a closed beta form. However, Activision has been taking the registration for the game for almost a month now and those who were the early ones now have a chance to download it and try out the beta. If you didn’t register for the beta, here’s how you can do that from your Android and iOS device.
How to register for Call of Duty Mobile closed beta
–If you are using an Android phone, Call of Duty Mobile will be available on the PlayStore for registering for the closed beta program.
–Search for the game in the Google PlayStore and hit the “Pre-register” button. Once you do that, PlayStore will automatically notify you of the game’s availability when the closed beta accepts your request.
–For iPhone or iPad users, they will need to head over to the official website, which is www.callofduty.com/mobile. The website offers an option to register yourself and will let you download the game via the App Store when it’s available.
Do note that if you pre-register for the game, you might have to wait for a while before the game becomes available for download. The closed beta will only accept limited applications and wouldn’t give you immediate access to the game. Therefore, there’s a lot of waiting needed to be done.
However, if you are impatient and cannot wait longer, then there’s an unofficial way to get the game on your phone immediately. There are two drawbacks to this – firstly, the security of your phone could be compromised and, secondly, it’s only available for Android users.
–Get on Google and search for Call of Duty Mobile APK. You will find links form popular APK depositories that are hosting the file. Make sure that you get the APK file scanned by an anti-malware app on your phone.
–To download the game data, which is called the OBB file, you will need to search it on Google. Many app depositories are hosting the OBB file and once you download that, you will have to paste the file in Android>obb. Once you are done, start the game and it will set itself up.
Once again, we remind you that this may not be very safe and you would require a Wi-Fi connection in order to download it.
