Activision has just announced that they will be introducing a microtransaction system into “Black Ops 2.” As announced through a blog post on OneOfSwords, “Black Ops 2” will be receiving a selection of new optional in-game items that can be purchased with real-world money.
Players will be able to purchase a variety of items that will change visual items or enhance the player’s experience, but these items will not in any way affect actual gameplay. Below, you can view a few of the microtransaction purchases that can be made.
Like dress-up for your favorite weapons. Each themed pack contains a unique weapon camo, three targeting reticles (one each for the Reflex, EO Tech, and ACOG sights), and a custom player Calling Card. All that stuff comes as a set for 160 MS Points.
Folks have been asking me about the pre-order bonus map’s wide availability for some time now, so here it is – and it’s free, so all players can enjoy it together.
If you didn’t get Nuketown Zombies as part of the Hardened or Care Package limited editions of the game, now you can get it as a standalone level for 400 MS Points.
Extra Slots Pack
This one’s for the players who requested even more loadouts and/or are fans of Theater Mode. You can now get 10 Create-a-Class sets and significantly expand your media storage, allowing you to archive 20 more emblems, 32 more films and 40 more screenshots for 160 MS Points.
Flags of the World Calling Card Packs
These packs include national flag-themed Calling Cards from countries around the world. Packs are divided by geographical region and costs 80 MS Points per region pack.
