Forums - Gaming Discussion - Call of Duty Mobile announcement trailer

It's amazing how close this basically looks like the 360/PS3 games, with some obvious drawbacks of course but still 

mobile hardware has really come a long way

If they'll ever bring CoD to the Switch and they can't be bothered to release the "mainline" games or some remastered game I think this one has a decent chance of making the jump.
Doesn't look half bad for what it is

Surprisingly doesn't look to bad visually, basically what I expect from 7th gen games but with improved post-processing.

Nah, especially not in terms of polygons. I pulled a little GameXplain on the video and analyzed the pictures more closely.

This game hits the polygon ceiling pretty hard, which is very visible if you watch the trailer in full screen on your PC/TV/whatever. The textures are brighter, but not anywhere near high res. Even early PS360 titles did better in that remark - they just had very bland colors compared to the much more vibrant ones in the trailer. The textures are also very uneven, the characters are okayish (pretty much as we say in Luxembourg: beautiful from afar but far from beautiful, at closeups they look really crappy bot otherwise okay), but the vehicles are extremely bad looking, even PS2 did better back then. just compare the shooter in front of the car with said car at the 22 second mark, or the hilariously crappy graphics of the car at 00:19.

In other words, that's closer to a Call of Duty Wii HD upscale than PS360 visuals. But the small screen couple with fast-paced action will cover those flaws pretty well.

Knowing Activision, I expect you'll need a state-of-the-art new phone for those visuals, and crank them down quite a lot on more mid-range phones.

PUBG and Fortnite are on mobile and are making a ton of money from it.

Visuals look nice, mobile tech has come along way.

They won't bother with porting and downscaling their current titles, and the last time they made a platform exclusive CoD (CoD BO Declassified), it was a technical disaster.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

This makes me wonder why they haven't done a CoD: All Stars type game where they have all the best maps from the games, the guns, perks, killstreaks and no specialist stuff.



Hmm, pie.
