Call of Duty: Heroes Released

Free-to-play strategy game available now for iOS devices; coming to Android later.


Though the third-person Call of Duty game may have been canceled, publisher Activision is not giving up on extending the blockbuster shooter series to new categories. The company today released Call of Duty: Heroes, a free-to-play 3D strategy game for iOS, Android, and Windows.

Heroes--which was originally announced in August--features characters from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Black Ops franchises, including Captain Price, Soap MacTavish, and Mike Harper, among others. The game lets players customize their bases and face off against friends though online battles.

You'll start with a small outpost and must construct and upgrade it with new weapons and equipment, including sentry guns, SAM turrets, mines, and more than 30 upgradeable structures. Since it's a Call of Duty game, you can also level up your characters and utilize killstreaks such as UAVs and drone strikes to help you along the way.

Heroes was developed by Chinese studio Faceroll. It's available now as a free download for iOS and Windows 8 tablets, while the Android version is "coming soon." For an optimal experience, Activision recommends playing Heroes on an iPhone 5 or newer and iPad Air 2 or Mini 2 or newer devices.

Since it's a free-to-play game, Activision makes its money by offering microtransactions. We tested the game today and found a maximum single purchase option of $100. Microtransactions, of course, are standard practice for mobile games, and Heroes also offers add-ons for less.

Watch out WhatsApp: Google may be launching a free messaging app very soon

Software giant Google Inc plans to launch a mobile messaging app it is likely to test in India and other emerging markets, the Economic Times reported on Friday, citing sources.

If launched, the mobile app will compete in the mobile chat space with the likes of WhatsApp, Line and Hike.

The daily said Google was in the early stages of development of the app, which will not make it mandatory to use a Google login. Moreover, unlike WhatsApp, where users have to pay Rs 53 annually after one year of usage, Google's messaging app will be free.

The Mountain View, California-based company is also looking at localisation, by adding Indian language support and voice-to-text messaging, the newspaper said.

A Google spokeswoman said the company did not comment on speculation.

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Time Anomaly Trailer Sheds New Light on Contemporary Subplot

Earlier this week, Ubisoft quietly dropped another new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity. The Time Anomaly trailer gave players their first hint at the contemporary storyline that will carry over into the game. In the previous games, Desmond Miles was plugged into the Animus, which detected the “genetic memories” of his ancestors. Desmond Miles is out of the picture, so the main franchise story will likely move in the direction of another character’s bloodline. The previous games featured the ancestors of Desmond Miles, and Arno Dorian is not Desmond’s ancestor. The brand new trailer offers the first look at the present-day timeline. It appears that the stakes of using the Animus have changed. The Time Anomaly trailer offers some exciting new wrinkles for the Assassin’s Creed unity storyline.
The voice of an unknown female character warns an unnamed Assassin that the French Revolution simulation is collapsing. The Assassin is likely the main player or character and the descendant of A…
