toy-game (Skylanders) MMO I’m talking about something bigger still and ironically something most of you reading this can’t play at all It’s Call of Duty Online a bona fide free-to-play PC-only multiplayer version of Activision’s popular Call of Duty shooter franchise that’s shifting from open beta to what Activision calls a “public open beta” today The catch: it’s for China and China only Activision Surprised Don’t be China is a gaming behemoth The country is home to an estimated 368 million video game players That’s more than the entire population of the United States The surprise

zombies are generally depicted as brainless shambling husks In China the undead or “jiangshi” are rigor mortis-stiffened corpses that ambulate by hopping The solution for Call of Duty Online Zombies are out cyborgs are in What about China’s so-called “anti-fatigue” system This is China’s state-mandated watchdog approach to limiting how much time players can spend playing games rolled out in 2007

transitional event What’s the difference between an “open beta” and an “open public beta” anyway “This is the first time it’s really out in the wild” said Hirshberg “Everything we’ve done up to now has been for more controlled finite audiences” So why tease Western gamers with a game they can’t play Hirshberg says it’s simply because there’s been a lot of curiosity in the West about the new
