While everyone is busy with EA’s microtransaction issues with Star Wars Battlefront 2, Activision is “swimming against the current” and is announcing that the Call of Duty Points that allow you to get Rare Supply Drops in the game are now live.
There are currently 4 types of Supply Drops announced, which can be bought by Call of Duty points through the game’s store: Standard Supply Drop, Rare Supply Drop, Standard Zombie Supply Drop and Rare Zombie Supply Drop.
However, data-mines have revealed that there will be more crates coming in the future. The Epic and Legendary Supply Drops will feature items of improved rarity on the battlefield and they will probably also contain bigger amounts of exp too. There is still no official information about this from Activision so we have to be patient to find out more about this.
Activision’s announcement about the release of Call of Duty points reads:
CP is the in-game currency that can be used in WWII to obtain Rare Supply Drops for use in Multiplayer game mode and Zombies Crates for use in Zombies game mode plus other in-game content. Not all game items available through Rare Supply Drops.
CP purchased may also be used to obtain in-game content in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Each game sold separately. Call of Duty: WWII must be launched and CP registered in-game before these CP will appear in Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered, and Black Ops III.
Sledgehammer Games has previously announced that Call of Duty: WW2 microtransactions will go live on November 21 “so the team can focus on our top priority items”. The fact that Call of Duty: WW2 microtransactions have been delayed so that Sledgehammer Games can focus on fixing the online connectivity is extremely positive since the fans don’t get that feeling that they just bought a “greedy” game.
