Microtransactions for cosmetic items are coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops II tomorrow, Activision community manager Dan Amrich has announced.
Referring to the available purchases as “Micro Items”, Amrich stressed that none would affect gameplay.
“This content contains either personal customizations or nice little luxuries that I’ve seen players request; none of them affect gameplay, but they are small, specific ways to enhance your online experience,” he wrote on his personal blog.
The Micro Items available include packs of weapon skins, alternate targeting reticules, and custom player Calling Cards, which would each cost 160 Microsoft Points.
For 160 Microsoft Points, players can get 10 extra Create-a-Class slots, 20 more emblem slots, 32 more film slots, and 40 more screenshot slots.
In addition, the Nuketown Zombies map – previously only available in the game’s Hardened or Care Package limited editions – will be available for 400 Microsoft Points.
“At the end of the day, all of these items are completely optional, and were created for players who’ve asked for more customization options,” wrote Amrich.
“If that’s not you, that’s fine; everybody gets Nuketown 2025 for free, so definitely take advantage of that.
“For complete info, check out the official site starting tomorrow. And yes, these will be coming to other platforms as well; when I know a date, I’ll post about it.”
A full reveal would be made by Activision on the game’s official site tomorrow, added Amrich.
