Skip If You Don't Like What Activision is Doing with Microtransactions
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Call of Duty Points are now live. These are in game currency that allows gamers to buy extra in-game items with real world money.
In Zombies you can get Nebulium Plasma with COD points. You can also use them to get Special Orders. These are basically tasks to complete to unlock special cosmetic items. It's all tied into the Black Market, which you're probably used to from Black Ops 3 and other Call of Duty games.
You can also use these to skip a tier in the rewards system. In the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Black Market you get different types of rewards based on your tiers. While you can earn you way to new tiers, you can also simply buy your way to a new level. 100 COD points skips you one level higher.
It's still early, but so far it looks like you can expect to see a big push to get gamers to spend money for new items in Black Ops 4 over the coming months.
