The CoD: Mobile test servers might’ve revealed a huge new addition coming to Activision’s iOS and Android title. Eagle-eyed players downloading the Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 test build noticed that there’s a 35.1MB download file titled “Gulag” amongst the new content. Could that mean there’s a Call of Duty: Mobile Gulag update incoming?
Is the Gulag coming to Call of Duty: Mobile?
The Gulag appears to be coming to CoD: Mobile, though it might not take the form you’d first expect. The setting was introduced in Call of Duty: Warzone and immediately embraced by that game’s community; whereas most battle royale modes don’t give second chances, the Gulag allows players to earn one by winning an intense 1v1 shootout. While CoD: Mobile players are no doubt excited by its potential addition, it most likely isn’t coming to BR in this case.
Seemingly, the Gulag will be a standalone map for the upcoming Call of Duty: Mobile 1v1 mode. It makes a lot of sense, as it’s probably the most notable close-quarters map in gaming right now, though it’ll still come as a disappointment to some. If the demand is present and it’s technically possible, however, there’s at least a chance that the Gulag could be integrated into the Isolated battle royale map.
With Season 7 of CoD: Mobile likely to launch in early June, there shouldn’t be too long to wait until we know for sure how the Gulag will be integrated on iOS and Android. Whatever happens, it’s undeniably an exciting addition to the free-to-play smartphone shooter.
