Wait to See What Activision Does with Microtransactions
We know that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will include Call of Duty Points. These are in game currency that allows gamers to buy loot crates called supply drops that contain in game gear.
At this stage it isn't clear how these will factor into the gameplay of multiplayer, Zombies or the Blackout Battle Royale mode. If Activision doesn't keep these to cosmetic only items or if they take things too far with rarity, it could dramatically change the game from day one to month two.
We should start to get a better idea of what Activision will do soon, but Call of Duty Points aren't live yet in Black Ops 4. If you aren't a fan of supply drops, this is something you should wait for more information on before you pre-order.
