In a report by MCV, it looks like Activision will be implementing microtransactions into Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
The good news is that these bonus charges won’t give anyone an advantage in multiplayer. Most of these “micro packs”, and the publisher calls them, will be purely cosmetic and allow players to further customize their avatars. The packs offered are as follows:
- Extra Slots Pack: 10 bonus Create-A-Class slots, and more online storage for videos and screenshots. $2.00/160 MS Points
- Personalization Pack: Custom calling card, three targeting reticles, and unique weapon camo. $2.00/160 MS Points
- Flags of the World Pack: National flag calling cards. $1.00/80 MS Points
While I’m no fan of microtransactions, these payments seem fair for folks looking to customize their avatar’s outfit to the n’th degree. What do you guys think? Will you be buying into this madness, or do you even care? Let me know in the comments.
