For that, players have access to "Hero Ops single-player campaign missions, Survival Mode cooperative experiences, Call of Duty multiplayer and the newly created Cyborgs (PVE modes exclusive to the Chinese market in Call of Duty Online).
'Call of Duty Online' is backed by a partnership between Activision and one of China's leading internet service provider, Tencent.
To go along with the new game, Turtle Beach has unveiled a special Call of Duty Online headset.
