Call of Duty Online To come to China, Activision Blizzard-Tencent Sign Agreement

Call of Duty Online will come to China, courtesy an agreement signed by Activision Blizzard and Tencent.

Activision Blizzard, Inc., the largest third-party interactive entertainment software publisher, and Tencent Holdings Limited, a leading Internet services provider in China, today announced a strategic relationship to bring Call of Duty Online to Chinese game players.

Call of Duty Online has been in development by Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, for approximately two years. Under the multi-year agreement with Activision Publishing, Tencent has the exclusive license to operate Call of Duty Online in mainland China. The game is free-to-play and monetized through the sales of in-game items.

The new game Call of Duty Online for China will capitalize on the rich multiplayer experience that the Call of Duty franchise is known for and introduce a new gaming model designed specifically for the Chinese market. This new model will allow players the ability to personalize their weapons, characters and equipment like never before in a Call of Duty game. Using an in-game store, players can enhance their weapons, gear, and perks built specifically for the Chinese market. The new game will also bring a variety of game modes and maps and features an original story told through a series of Special Operations missions based on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® universe. --------
