Call of Duty Online brings modern warfare to China with Tencent

Today, Activision Blizzard announced a landmark partnership with Chinese publisher Tencent that will bring Call of Duty Online to Chinese shores. The deal opens the door for Acti-Blizz to bring the upcoming microtransaction-based shooter to an enromous new audience of tens of millions of Chinese gamers.

CoD fans will notice that much of this content is based on multiplayer levels and weapons that were already featured in the last five games from Modern Warfare 1 onward. So try not to be too sad that this isn't coming to America, you're not missing much.

Call of Duty Online is currently only planned for release in China, but you can expect that to change if the service does well over there. Frankly, we'd be pretty shocked if Acti-Blizz doesn't announce a microtransaction-supported CoD within the next two years.

    I know it's a bit too early but I hope one day they can revamp the Call of duty 4 modern warfare, just like they did to halo. But now now, let's say in like 8 years(:

    Wow. It looked like they've updated some of the maps in the game because some of them like Storm seemed somewhat different.

    I'm betting they are looking forward to the 15% of the game that won't be censored.
