Most gamers of the newest installment, Call of Duty: Ghosts have been enjoying the single-player campaign as well as the multiplayer maps that are currently available.

However, there is another game that may be novel to most Western gamers, but has actually been well-played by those in the Chinese market. According to Hardware Pal, there's another branch of the game, a once exclusive offer to the Shanghai market that may now be coming to the West.

Call of Duty: Online is a game developed by Activision Shanghai and Raven Software, and designed to be a free-to-play transaction game. Whether it is due to the reception of the game or the fact that Call of Duty: Ghosts is one of the most played and well-received games for the next-gen PS4 and Xbox One, even Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg has hinted that this may come to North America.

According to the report, Call of Duty: Online is operating on multiplayer modes, but you can use almost all the characters and weapon customisation that are available for the Call of Duty franchise.

The game also comes with a Robot Zombie mode, where you can kill robot zombies via maps. For now, Call of Duty: Online is available as a PC-only game, but if Activision is bringing it to the West, there's a big chance that it will adapt the console port design.
