PUBG Mobile faces stiff competition as Activision's Call of Duty: Mobile launches in full

Call of Duty: Mobile brings something new to the mobile battle royale scene.
Call of Duty: Mobile brings something new to the mobile battle royale scene.
After months of beta testing, Activision and Tencent Games' latest offering, Call of Duty: Mobile is now live and available worldwide. While not quite as feature-packed as its biggest competitor, PUBG Mobile, it does seem to be a more refined game.

PUBG Mobile took the mobile world by storm last year, as it launched to an overwhelmingly positive reception and quickly became one of the most popular mobile games in the world. Activision, in collaboration with Tencent, has finally launched the first true competitor to PUBG Mobile—Call of Duty: Mobile.

Call of Duty: Mobile was in closed beta for months but has finally been launched, with users around the world now being able to download the game.  Compared to PUBG Mobile, it is, perhaps, a more polished game. Ping appears to be lower than on the former, and the graphics are definitely cleaner. That said, PUBG Mobile is a more developed game and that fact shines through when comparing the main menus of both games.

There's been a feeling among hardcore PUBG Mobile players that the game has stagnated, and there is some truth to it, as certain bugs and gameplay quirks have existed for months without being tackled by the game's developers.

After a couple of matches on Call of Duty: Mobile, it's safe to say that the game has my attention. PUBG Mobile has its work cut out for it if its to hold its place as a premium option in the mobile battle royale space. 

Call of Duty: Mobile weighs in at a decent 1.11 GB download. All images are gameplay screenshots taken on an LG V40.
