Activision has launched its 80s Action Heroes event within the Call of Duty universe, including new content for Call of Duty Mobile. The update is now available for iOS and Android devices.

The 80s Action Heroes event coincides with the recent revamping of Call of Duty Warzone’s Verdansk map to give it an 80s flair. The update introduces two familiar faces to the Call of Duty universe.

The first is John McClane, the hero of the Die Hard films. He’s a New York cop who turns up at a Christmas Eve work party that turns into a hostage situation. The second is Rambo, a man who was double-crossed while on a clandestine mission and left to fight alone.

These two characters are available to grab in Call of Duty Mobile as separate bundles, and will be available for the standard price of a character bundle.

They were originally revealed in a series of cryptic tweets made last week on the official Call of Duty account, with references made to Nakatomi Air Ducts and John Rambo’s kill count as if it was a Call of Duty kill/death ratio.

In addition to the new characters, there is also a new game mode made available within Call of Duty Mobile. It’s called Guns Blazing, where players within the match have a chance to become McClane or Rambo with increased health and dual-wielded Death Machines. This may also give you the chance to sample either of the two characters before choosing to purchase the bundles.

Call of Duty Mobile is available now from the iOS App Store and the Google Play for Android store, where it is a free to play game containing adverts and in-app purchases.
