With the amount of success that the Call of Duty franchise has been receiving lately, it is odd to hear that fans are still disappointed, particularly with the mobile version of the shoot 'em up classic.
That’s all about to change tonight. Starting today, Activision/Blizzard will be updating the game with a brand new patch, one filled to the brim with the spooky fan favorite: zombies.
An official preview video was released just two days ago on the COD Mobile Twitter account. In it, there is a map of the world, which turns blood red across the globe. The visual for it is great. See it for yourself below.
