Call Of War: Cross-Platform War Will Break Out March 20th

Bytro releases native mobile apps for the popular multi-platform strategy game

Hamburg, March 15th 2018 | The Hamburg-based developer Bytro is proving that there is still room for innovation in the competitive mobile gaming market with their new mobile apps for the successful PC game Call Of War, which will be available worldwide in eleven languages on March 20th. Set in World War II, Call of War is the first genuine MMO grand strategy game that is available on smartphones and tablets.

Players take control of one of the major nations in the war and dive into some of the most thrilling battles of the largest conflict in history along with up to 100 real opponents. In order to win, they will have to conquer entire regions, forge alliances, grow their economy and research the secret weapon projects of World War II. It’s up to players to decide how they want to achieve their goals. Do you try to make allies or do you ruthlessly push your own interests? Do you develop advanced weapons or do you grind down your enemies in a slow but effective war of attrition. The game is played in real time and matches can last several weeks.

What makes Call Of War special, besides its challenging gameplay and authentic setting, is its consistent approach to cross-platform play.

“Our players, a total of three million across all versions of the game, are free to choose whichever platform they like best. They can play from their browser, on Steam or through the iOS and Android apps, all with a single account. We are especially proud of that”, says Tobias Kringe, managing director of Bytro.

Thanks to its HTML5 framework, no plugins are needed to play the game from your browser.

Alongside this sophisticated technical implementation, Call Of War aims for maximal user comfort and exciting battles in a historically accurate scenario. Players move their units simultaneously in multiple passes, allowing them to try out different tactics and strategies. Fans of strategy board games in particular will have a blast with Call Of War, the developer Bytro believes.

Call of War conquers mobile browsers


The Hamburg-based developer Bytro is opening up their most successful browser game, Call of War, to mobile browsers. With this update, the prolific German studio is getting in on the ground floor of a powerful trend, the move towards web apps and mobile browser games. The mobile version of Call of War is currently in open beta.

Call of War is a hardcore strategy game set in World War II, which was able to win over more than two million players worldwide. With this new port for mobile browsers, generals are now able to take the battlefield with them wherever they go. Checking your resources at the bus stop and sending troops to new areas? Bytro made it possible with Call of War, all without downloading an app. The studio has pooled its strengths in the last months in order to turn Call of War into an unforgettable experience, even on mobile devices. A complete redesign of the user interface made it possible to preserve every feature of the desktop version, while offering a completely new play experience.

The trend towards mobile devices continues. At the same time, more and more users are turning their backs on apps and switching over to browser games, which can be launched from inside messenger services. “The advantages are obvious: there are no downloads required, you can immediately start playing, whether on your desktop or your phone,” says Felix Faber, CEO of Bytro. “HTML5-based messenger services offer completely new possibilities for players, especially when it comes to multiplayer games.

Call of War, which is currently in open beta, supports iOS devices from the iPhone 5 onwards and Android smartphones with Android 5 or higher.

Social media platforms like WeChat (China) or VKontakte (Russia) have long offered their users a wide variety of games that can be launched in mobile browsers directly from messenger services. In May, Facebook followed suit. The market for these games is enormous: Facebook’s messenger alone has 1.2 billion users, all potential players for Instant Games. The technology behind these games is HTML5, the web standard for creating high-quality browser games with great performance. A perfect match for Bytro, who have been focusing on HTML5 games since 2009.
