Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Adds Micro-Transactions With Call of Duty Points
With the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 update yesterday, Treyarch introduced three new weapons to the Black Market through Supply Drops, as well as new taunts, new variants, new Calling Cards, and more.
While you can earn all the new items by playing the game and trading Cryptoleys you earn for Supply Drops in the Black Market, Treyarch and Activision have also introduced micro-transactions to Black Ops 3 with Call of Duty Points.
Completely optional, here’s what Activision says about Call of Duty Points:
For fans that want to secure additional Supply Drops in multiplayer or Vials of Liquid Divinium in zombies, we’re introducing Call of Duty Points – a new optional virtual currency for players on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Starting [today], fans can purchase Call of Duty Points and use them to acquire Rare Supply Drops in Black Ops 3.
For zombies fans, Call of Duty Points can also be used to purchase Vials of Liquid Divinium otherwise earned by playing Shadows of Evil or The Giant Bonus Map, which can be used to create Gobblegums in Dr. Monty’s Factory and aid in the fight against the undead hordes. Items contained in Supply Drops and Gobblegums remain the same, regardless of whether they’re unlocked with Cryptokeys, Vials of Liquid Divinium, or Call of Duty Points. Additionally, Call of Duty Points can be used for other in-game content, such as the Extra Slots pack.
With the PlayStation Store update in Europe today, we know the prices of Call of Duty Points, which range from €1.99 – €39.99 (expect € prices to equal USD prices):
- 200 VC Pack – £1.60/€1.99
- 1100 VC Pack – £7.99/€9.99
- 2400 VC Pack – £15.99/€19.99
- 5000 VC Pack – £31.99/€39.99
If you log in and play Black Ops 3 online on PS4, XB1, or PC for a limited time, you’ll receive 200 Call of Duty Points.
