Activision released a new Call of Duty game Thursday sub-titled Strike Force. This new title isn't for the consoles or PC though as the series just went mobile with an iOS release for the iPhone and iPad.
Call of Duty: Strike Force is the first game from mobile developer Blast Furnace which was formed by Activision in late 2011. The game features both a traditional first-person shooter view but also allows the user to switch to a tactical third-person view to "coordinate squad attacks."
"The year is 2020. Tensions run high amongst the world’s superpowers," the game's description reads. "In a surprise attack, the U.S. finds themselves in a war with an unknown enemy. Your mission is to lead a Joint Special Operations Team in a global effort to hunt down those responsible."
Strike Force costs $6.99 and comes with two game modes. Campaign mode is a single-player experience that follows the traditional Call of Duty formula of shooting through levels set around the world with cinematic cut-scenes in between. Meanwhile, Survival mode sees the player face off against waves of enemies in order to compete with others online in leaderboard rankings.
The game does require iOS 6 or later and will run on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad.
