Activision has released a new beta public test build for Call of Duty: Mobile today. The build is being used to test upcoming features to the game in seasons eight and nine.

The public test build has been released for both Android and iOS devices. The download size is about 2GB. It is only open to 30,000 players, so fans have to be quick if they want to check out the upcoming features in the game. The end date for the test is Sept. 13.

This public test build will test the new Hovec Sawmill map. It also includes a new operator skill, scorestreak, weapon, perk, mode, BR vehicle, BR class, and more.
