The name for Call of Duty: Mobile season eight has been leaked and it also appears as if a classic Modern Warfare villain will also be making an appearance. 

Even since releasing in October of 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile has taken some of the best weapons, maps, and features from CoD history and bundled them all together under one roof. 

It’s been a hit with fans as players keep flocking to download the game and getting to grips with the new content. The mobile title is currently in its seventh season of content, and with expectations high for season eight, fans have bee trying to get their hands on early information.

The devs have already teased the addition of Highrise as a new multiplayer map, but the name of the new season and it’s all-new character have surfaced ahead of time.

There are plenty of changes coming to CoD: Mobile.

On July 6, fans and leakers managed to get a glimpse of a teaser image from Garena – who publish the game in Southeast Asia – showing the name for the next season, Apocalypse Day, in the top left-hand corner.

In the middle of the image, though, is a shadowy figure. While it might not seem like there any many clues to deduce from the photo, some fans have already noted that it is Makarov.

The Russian villain played an integral part in the stories of Modern Warfare 2 and 3, meaning he links perfectly to the new additions for CoD Mobile.

Makarov appears to be lurking in the shadows of the CoD Mobile Season 8 teaser.

Garena had previously let the Radioactive Agent content slip out early prior to the start of season seven, and it appears as if the same thing has happened again. 

We don’t have long to wait and see, though, as Call of Duty: Mobile season seven is currently in its final week and season eight gets underway on Saturday, July 11

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
