CALL OF DUTY®: STRIKE TEAM DEPLOYS TODAY
ON iPhone®, iPad®, AND iPod touch®
First Mobile Call of Duty Title from The Blast Furnace™ Delivers a
First-Person AND Third-Person Multi-Touch Experience for Fans On-the-Go
SANTA MONICA, CA – September 5, 2013 – Call of Duty® fans can take the action on-the-go with Call of Duty®: Strike Team, available at launch exclusively for iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®. Call of Duty: Strike Team is optimized for mobile and tablet glass mechanics*, offering a choice of how to play: as players control a squad of up to four highly trained Strike Team members, each with customizable skills and loadouts, the in-game view can be seamlessly switched from classic first-person action, to a top-down, third-person perspective providing a full range of both action combat and tactical decision making.
Call of Duty: Strike Team represents the first Call of Duty mobile title from Activision’s new mobile development studio, The Blast Furnace™, led by veteran developers Mark Washbrook, from Rockstar London, and Rockstar Leeds legend Gordon Hall.
“Call of Duty: Strike Team is all about giving a single player experience that is unlike anything else in the Call of Duty world in a way that matches the interests of players on-the-go,” said Mark Washbrook, Studio Head of The Blast Furnace. “By giving fans the option to play in either first-person or third-person views, and to switch between them on the fly, we’ve really opened the doors for gamers to have a fun and entertaining gameplay experience with Call of Duty: Strike Team, because they can play the game the way they want.”
Call of Duty: Strike Team features both a new, story-driven single player campaign that’s full of epic, cinematic Call of Duty moments, as well as a highly-replayable single player Survival Mode, packed with many of the franchise’s weapons, perks, ranks, and prestige levels. The game lets players compete with family, friends, and other players for leaderboard domination. Plus, players with an existing Call of Duty account can sign in with their credentials to Call of Duty: Strike Team for exclusive, in-game bonuses. Players can register for a Call of Duty account for free on the web.
Published by Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), and developed by Leeds, U.K.-based The Blast Furnace, Call of Duty: Strike Team is now available for $6.99 from the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com/CallofDutyStrikeTeam.
