Activision Blizzard and Tencent Holdings Limited announced a strategic relationship to bring Call of Duty Online… to Chinese game players. The game will be free-to-play and monetized through the sales of in-game items.
Call of Duty Online has been in development by Activision Publishing for approximately two years. Under the multi-year agreement with Activision Publishing, Tencent has the exclusive license to operate Call of Duty Online in mainland China.
The new game Call of Duty Online will allow players the ability to personalize their weapons, characters and equipment like never before in a Call of Duty game. Using an in-game store, players can enhance their weapons, gear, and perks. The new game will also bring a variety of game modes and maps and features an original story told through a series of Special Operations missions based on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare universe.
No word yet if Call of Duty Online is going to be released in US or Europe.
