Call Of Duty Online Free To Play Is Coming! (Sort Of)

MMOBomb Staff
By MMOBomb Staff, July 3, 2012

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.

ok cod has become boring to me but now its coming f2p i wonder are the gonna make it pay to win hmmmmm +D

High possibility of the game being pay2win due to it being developed by a Chinese game company (Did I say developed? I meant copy pasted.)

WHY WHY WHY!!! because EA made a free version of Battle Field so Activision has to do the same as well. Stop whining, everyone has seen how big EA failed with the f2p version of BF so this most likely will not be a big hit either.
Basic timeline of this game(like any other f2p fps)
Hype>CB>CB2>OB>game stays in OB for 2 years>initial hype is gone after 6 months>Final Release>almost 80% of gaming population in game moves on to the next big fps.
So basically all in all, this game will be flushed in about 3 years, I for one wont be sapped into thinking this game is cool, sorry I hate COD games always have always will.

Damn! This game actually looks pretty good. Shame it's not coming to the US anytime soon. Those Chinese BASTARDS!!!!! My favorite free to play is BFP4F with AVA coming in second. I have just about every free FPS but these 2 are my fav. I am Creeper69,Tomco69,HAWH69 and DRAGOON69 on BFP4F. Look me up. See you on the battlefield solders!!!!!!!!!!!

You will probably be able to buy nukes for real money so you can just spam them all round if you pay enough.

God damn...F*** this shit, I am a huge fan of free2play but this is only going to make me shit rainbow flavoured shit in the middle of their Duty franchise.

Well all its hate aside, I think it might work if they play their cards right. COD4 was great, so we already know they can make a decent multiplayer, and I liked some Black Ops, but if its made by some random asian company, it's probably going to be just as terrible as Combat Arms, Counter Strike, Sudden attack, arctic combat, point blank, and all in between. Give it to great devs like Zombie Studios, or just make it yourself, but no Chinese devs please, no offense to China. And why is this and WarFace in Asia and not NA. Warface is developed by CryTek for Christ Sake!

Looks like Call of Duty 4.... which was awesome. And I didn't really like Arctic Combat, so if this comes out in U.S, that would be great!
