Call of Duty Online (also known as CODOL) is a Call of Duty game released exclusively in China as a "free-to-play micro transaction game" published, marketed, and distributed by Tencent Holdings and fully developed by Activison Shanghai and Raven Software. The game entered open beta on January 14, 2013. The game features a new gaming model which gives the player the ability to personalize weapons, characters and equipment "with localized, unique content tailored to the needs and interest of gamers in China.".

The first map, Outpost, is a remake of Nacht der Untoten. The second map, Cyborg Institute (also translated as Cyborg Laboratory), is a remake of Verrückt.

- This game is exclusive to China at the moment but there are talks on bringing the game to the rest of the world.
- There is a way to play the game outside of China by getting into a Chinese server, but the connection would be very inadequate. The servers are up and running.
