PEGI 18+

Call of Duty


Call of Duty is a series of shooter games in a war setting. There are games available on numerous platforms such as Wii, PC and Xbox. The games, which are provided by Activision, have graphic violence and strong language resulting in an 18+ age rating.

The different games are set in historic or modern warfare settings and a player can play alone or in a team. A player can buy COD Points to pay for in-game items or a Battle Pass. A Battle Pass rewards a player with items such as weapons as they progress in the game.

People can chat with other players in their team or those who are nearby in the game. A player can report another player, for example for using offensive language.

As this game has been created for adults there are no parental controls. Safety settings include the ability to turn off some violent and gory content. Players can also automatically block messages containing swear words or turn off text and voice chat altogether. The gaming platform being used to play a Call of Duty game e.g. PlayStation may provide more safety settings.
