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.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Zombies Sold Separately As Part of $50 DLC Pass

Fans were excited when last week a leaked trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare seemed to show that a Zombies mode would be making it into the game. As Advanced Warfare is from Sledgehammer, Activision’s newest developer recruit, it was unknown if Zombies, a Treyarch tradition, would appear as a mode in the new game.

Now, we have confirmation that Zombies are indeed coming to Advanced Warfare, but how they’re coming might upset fans.

Announced by a GameStop press release, access to an upcoming Zombies mode is granted through the purchase of the game’s mammoth $50 DLC Season Pass, which includes five maps from the get-go, all maps after that, and now apparently, Zombies.

Though Call of Duty is known for its traditional deathmatch-style multiplayer and summer blockbuster-esque story campaigns, there is a huge contingent of fans who adore Zombies, and some who play it almost exclusively, as it’s a very different type of game than any of the other modes with its own kind of strategy and…
