“Call of Duty: Black Out 4” fans can now download the new ‘Call of Duty Companion App’ and keep track of their stats, stay on top of new announcements, and vote for rewards and challenges for their favorite online shooter. The app still has content to unlock over the next week, but you can sign in with a multitude of online IDs to see what’s new in the Call of Duty universe and check your gear when away from your game.
As for the app itself, the new companion app allows users to take their squad on the go, check on your favorite loadouts, and read recaps, briefs and gameplay tips based on their play. Additionally, players can compete for squad rewards, receive personalized intel, and be the first to learn about Call of Duty news while using their mobile device.
Using the friends feed, you can check on each others’ progress while checking accomplishments and battle stats. The app lets you see what they’re playing and compare their achievements to the ones you have earned. A squad can consist of up to 20 other players and you all earn in-game and exclusive rewards by completing weekly objectives as a Squad. From week-to-week, your Squad will be tasked with in-game challenges that earn you rewards to use in game.
“The Call of Duty Companion App is something that we are very excited for players to use to enhance their gameplay experience,” said Gina Hope, Senior Director of Marketing Technology at Activision. “From connecting you with friends and fellow players, to providing personalized match analysis to checking out your loadouts and competing in challenges with your own squad, it’s a new way for players to engage with the game and the community.”
Each week you will also get an Action Report, showing how you played the week before. It will also come with suggestions, tips and tricks.
“The release of the Call of Duty Companion App is part of our continued commitment to creating personalized services for players that enhances their gameplay and deepens their connection to the game, as well as other players,” said Monte Lutz, SVP of Consumer Engagement, Activision. “We’re launching with compelling features that are tailor-made for the Call of Duty community, and we’ll continue to add new capabilities, including localization, a loadout editor and chat, that will give players the tools they need to get the most out of Call of Duty. We look forward to partnering with the community on developing the roadmap for future features.”
