What you need to know

  • The latest Call of Duty Mobile update will be rolling out across the globe this weekend.
  • The update will bring back support for Bluetooth controllers and introduce the much anticipated Zombie Mode.
  • Also included in the update are new maps and assets for the new Battle Pass which launches on November 25.

Call of Duty Mobile wouldn't be a true Call of Duty game without a proper Zombie Mode. After teasing the mode with a greyed-out icon on the main menu, the time has come and the horde approaches.

The long-awaited new game mode will be rolling out as part of a major update to the game that will also include some new maps, the return of Bluetooth controller support, and also get things primed and ready for the new Battle Pass which starts on November 25.

As clarified in an Reddit post from the official COD Mobile account, the update should start rolling out November 22 starting at 9 p.m. PST, and as you can maybe make out in the tweeted video above, this is indeed a global update that is intended to land on phones around the world at about the same moment but different times of day based on each region's timezone. Here are the locations and times when to expect the update notification.

  • Los Angeles: Nov 22 - 21:00 PST
  • New York: Nov 23 - 00:00 EST
  • Sao Paulo: Nov 23 - 2:00 BRT
  • London: Nov 23- 5:00 GMT
  • Stockholm: Nov 23 - 6:00 CET
  • Berlin: Nov 23 - 6:00 CET
  • Moscow: Nov 23 - 8:00 MSK
  • New Delhi: Nov 23 - 10:30 IST
  • Sydney: Nov 23 - 16:00 AEDT
  • Tokyo: Nov 23 - 14:00 JST

While most players are excited to jump into the new Zombie Mode, I'm equally excited to see how the game plays with a Bluetooth controller.
