Coming in from past installments, Call of Duty: WWII will unsurprisingly feature Call of Duty Points (CP) once again as a form of premium currency.
The element was confirmed by Activision earlier today when it announced yet another incentive for players to be part of the action later this year.
Anyone who pre-orders or purchases any Call of Duty: WWII digital edition will receive 1,100 points that will be credited once the game launches.

CP cannot be acquired by grinding day in and day out, and can only be purchased by spending real-world currency. These points can then be redeemed for supply drops that unlock rare in-game goodies in return. The attractive offer to earn some points early may hold a greater meaning if you are interested in jumping into the multiplayer mode on day-one with some fancy upgrades.
Take note that all weapon and gear variants unlocked in Call of Duty: WWII will be purely cosmetics. Players do not have to worry about any item from the supply drops that toys around with statistics.
The “Multiplayer Upgrade” bonus pack was announced last week for those interested in getting a head start. It includes a free weapon unlock, which means that players will have the option of gaining permanent access to a single weapon of choice from the first day. In addition, the pack offers a four-hour Double XP booster that players can utilize in the multiplayer mode to make some quick progress through levels and unlock additional weaponry.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to officially release on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
