After weeks of anticipation, fueled by the numerous cryptic teasers from Call of Duty devs, the latest update to the game is now live. Players can now head to the Google Play Store or App Store and download the latest update in preparation for the new Season of Call of Duty Mobile.
In a bid to make the game a lot more accessible, the devs have successfully reduced the app’s download size by up to 61%, which is absolutely massive. The devs have been able to do so by optimizations and by giving players more options that allows them to choose what is downloaded, such as HD resources, maps, weapons, and operators.
Low storage space is often an issue most players have to work around, but this certainly makes it much easier for Call of Duty Mobile fans.
