Call of Duty: Mobile update adding controller support, zombie mode, and more

An official Call of Duty: Mobile account on Reddit has revealed that a significant update is coming to the game later today. It's slated to arrive at 21:00 PST, and this update will include controller support, a new zombie mode, and new maps. A new Battle Pass is also coming, but it won't arrive until November 25th. Back when I covered the release of Call of Duty: Mobile in October, I was delighted with the shooter, though the missing controller support was a sticking point. Thankfully Activision has been listening to its fans, so the announcement for today's update is indeed very welcome news.

PAYDAY: Crime War will shut down next month, may return in the future

Back in 2018, I went hands-on with the 180906.1826 build of PAYDAY: Crime War, a first-person shooter that at the time suffered from lackluster controls and uneven matchmaking. This past August, the game was released in the US as a limited beta, and I guess things have not been working out in the last three months since the developer has announced that PAYDAY: Crime War will be shut down on December 16, 2019. The only silver lining to take away from this announcement is that the game may return under a new publisher in the future, though this deal is currently pending, so it may not work out.

Call of Duty: Mobile officially arrives on Android, and it's actually not a bad game

Back in March Activision and Tencent officially announced Call of Duty: Mobile at the 2019 Game Developers Conference, and in the middle of last month we learned that the mobile shooter would be officially released on the Google Play Store on October 1st, which means the game is now available on Android. As expected, this is a free-to-play release. In-app purchases, loot boxes, and a premium pass are included, not to mention a plethora of cosmetic items and an expensive in-game currency. Still, the amount of nostalgia offered in the title is hard to ignore, and the gameplay luckily holds up, which is why the game is definitely worth a look.

PAYDAY: Crime War limited beta access live in the US, soft-launched in further regions

It's been a while since PAYDAY: Crime War popped up on my radar. Back in September of 2018, I went hands-on with the title. I came away unimpressed thanks to iffy controls, many signs of egregious monetization, and poor matchmaking. In the last eleven months, the game has apparently received a few updates, and so it is once again being tested in the US as a limited beta release. On top of this, the game was recently soft-launched in Sweden, Finland, Spain, the United Kingdom, Brazil, India, and Canada. So if you'd like to jump in to see how things are shaping up, now's your chance.

PAYDAY: Crime War hands-on: A solid online shooter hobbled by poor controls and uneven matchmaking

PAYDAY: Crime War is a new first-person shooter for Android that recently entered into a closed beta on September 10th, and it runs until October 14th. Unlike Payday 2, you can now play as cops and robbers, which is an interesting twist. The idea is that teams of fours cops face get to off against teams of four robbers, and it works out well. Of course, this is still a Payday title, so you can also expect plenty of loot to collect, equip, and upgrade, along with a ranked mode for those that take their mobile shooters seriously. It's Payday in your pocket, and it's coming soon to Android.

In an article from earlier this month, I talked about how Madfinger Games was planning the upcoming release for their long-awaited title Shadowgun Legends. This was supposed to go down on March 22nd, and well, it's the 22nd somewhere in the world, which means it's right on time. So if you dig mobile first-person shooters with a penchant for high-quality graphics, then you are in luck because Shadowgun Legends is finally here.

[Hands-on] Morphite, an atmospheric explorative sci-fi shooter that is a heck of a lot of fun

Crescent Moon Games' exploration-based sci-fi first-person shooter Morphite is finally available on the Play Store. And sure it may not have officially released yet, but a final beta is plenty good enough for me to give this a quick test run to let everyone know how it is shaping up.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, First Announced For The SHIELD Android TV At Launch, Is Finally Available On The Play Store

Way back at the Game Developer's Conference just over a year ago, NVIDIA announced the SHIELD Android TV. While the presentation included streaming PC games and NVIDIA's GeForce NOW (formerly GRID) streaming game service, the announcement also focused on full-version PC games that would be getting full Android ports built especially for the SHIELD's high-powered Tegra X1 hardware. We've seen precious little of that - few of the big-name games first announced with the SHIELD have come to fruition aside from Doom 3 and Metal Gear Rising. But today we get perhaps the most impressive game from the original announcement: the latest entry in the Borderlands series.

Dead Effect 2 Lets You Chop Up Space Zombies With A Space Katana (In Space)

You can't swing a severed limb around on the Play Store without hitting half a dozen zombie games, and first person shooters (even high-end variants like Unkilled) aren't exactly thin on the ground. But you might want to give Dead Effect 2, the sequel to a 2013 science fiction-horror shooter, a second look anyway. While the premise isn't exactly original, falling somewhere between Alien and Dead Space, the sheer variety and polish makes it worth consideration from Android gamers.

First of all, the game seems to have a much tighter focus on storytelling than other zombie shooters. You pick up right where the last game left off, on a derelict spaceship crawling with undead crewmembers and other, more elaborate monsters - think Doom 3 with iron sights.
