Activision has launched a surprise attack on the iOS App Store, releasing Call of Duty: Strike Team on iPhone and iPad. The game combines top-down and first-person-shooter gameplay in an experience that has been “built from the ground up for mobile and tablet devices.”
Call of Duty: Strike Team is set in 2020, as the US finds itself thrown into war against any unknown enemy. Players lead the Joint Special Operations Team in a quest to hunt down the enemy by any means necessary. Players can switch between the traditional first-person-shooter mode and a top-down third person view to manage their squads.
The game’s campaign mode follows the single-player storyline, while a Survival mode tests players as they go up against waves of increasingly difficult enemies. Users can compare their survival scores against those of their friends (and strangers) on the in-game leaderboards.
Call of Duty: Strike Team is unfortunately only compatible with newer iOS devices. The game isn’t compatible with iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4th Generation, and instead requires iPhone 4S / iPad 2 or newer. The app is now available to download on iOS for $6.99. You can follow the app’s growth on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
