Yeah, that Call of Duty.

Activision today announced the exclusive to iOS launch of Call of Duty: Strike Team.

This is the first time Activision has released a mobile title in the incredibly popular and well-selling military first-person shooter franchise that breaks all kinds of records on consoles, Mac, and PC.

You’ll be able to play with a squad of four in the new iOS game, customizing the loadouts and skills of each team member, then switch between first-person action to a top-down, third-person viewpoint, giving you a more strategic take on the battles. Here’s a great video that explains more.

The game was developed by Activision’s new mobile dev studio, The Blast Furnace, run by two big devs from Rockstar games in the UK, Mark Washbrook and Gordon Hall.

Call of Duty: Strike Team is all about giving a single player experience that is unlike anything else in the Call of Duty world in a way that matches the interests of players on-the-go,” said Washbrook in a statement. “By giving fans the option to play in either first-person or third-person views, and to switch between them on the fly, we’ve really opened the doors for gamers to have a fun and entertaining gameplay experience with Call of Duty: Strike Team, because they can play the game the way they want.”

You’ll get a new, story-driven single player campaign to help learn you up on the controls, a single-player Survival Mode, and then–what Call of Duty is most well-known for– you’ll get to play against friends, families, and arch enemies in crazy multiplayer battle action. Better yet, sign in with a Call of Duty account, and you’ll get exclusive, in-game bonuses to brag about to your console playing buddies.

Call of Duty: Strike Team is available now for $6.99 on the App Store, and should be coming this fall to Android devices, says Activision.

    Please tell me they are going to take advantage of iOS 7’s universal control option and allow 3rd party controllers for this game!?!

    “and should be coming this fall to Android devices, says Activision.” Why? So it can be pirated?

    How can it be pirated if there isn’t an Android version released yet?

    I hope so. A shooter on a touch screen is the worst.
