Call of Duty: Legends of War comes to Android; but there's a little catch

Here's how you can download the game before even the stable version is out.

After the great success of PUBG Mobile, the makers of the game, Tencent, have now brought Call of Duty: Legends of War to Android smartphones. But this announcement comes with a little caveat.
