Call Of Duty Mobile has come out swinging with an incredible - and record-breaking - launch week that saw the game downloaded over 100 million times. Unsurprisingly, Activision is hoping to capitalise on the mobile shooter's nascent success by keeping the content coming.
An in-game message confirms that a brand new, limited-time Free-for-All mode hits Call Of Duty Mobile today (October 11). Just make sure you get in and enjoy while it lasts though, as the mode will only be available to play until Thursday, October 17.
Free-for-All is to be the first new mode to come to Call of Duty Mobile since its release, and will be a good-old-fashioned everyone-for-themselves deathmatch, supporting up to eight players.
It should come as a welcome relief to those of you who aren't massively into the game's current crop of team-based modes. After all, a victory only really feels like a victory when you haven't had to carry your teammates to the win, right guys? I wouldn't actually know to be fair as, full disclosure, I am horrible at team shooters and almost certainly the weak link in any squad. Ah well.

You'll be able to play through Free-for-All on any of the currently available maps in Call of Duty Mobile. You can get to it from the game's featured playlists, but I should point out that you can only access it if you've reached level 8. If not, I'd do a quick grind before the mode leaves next week.
According to Mobile app analytics experts Sensor Tower, Call Of Duty Mobile was downloaded an eye-watering 56.9 million times on iOS alone. For comparison, rival shooters PUBG Mobile and Fortnite managed 28 million and 22.5 million their own launch weeks respectively.
Sensor Tower's data goes on to reveal that Call Of Duty Mobile had the most installs in the USA, accounting for around 16.9 percent of the total downloads (that's around 17.3 million users). India was close behind with 13.4 percent, and Brazil with 7 percent.
The game has yet to launch in China, which makes up around 25% of the world's mobile gaming market, but it's been reported that Activision is currently working to earn approval to launch the game over there because... well, because then it would probably make an awful lot more money, right?
Don't feel too bad if you miss Free-for-All because you've got a wedding or an impromptu camping trip to attend. Activision has promised that we can expect regularly added modes, content, and limited-time events.
