The upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops 4 content system might have just been implemented in the current Call of Duty Black Ops 3 content system. The new system is a fairly big change so late in the game’s lifetime, especially since Black Ops 4 will be coming out later this year.
The new possible Black Ops 4 content system that was implemented adds in nine new outfits, one for each specialist. All of these can be obtained by completing a specific contract, winning 15 matches for each outfit, which is obtainable with 300 CP each.
Ordinarily, various content like outfits and other items that you could pick up for your various specialists in Black Ops were locked behind supply drops, making this unlockable contract system fairly novel, at least in Call of Duty terms. On the upside, it’s also a good way to get rid of the possibility of things like loot boxes and pay-to-win microtransactions.
Doing the contracts allows every player to get them in a fairly short amount of time if they can manage to get on a winning team. The Black Ops 4 content system is apparently similar to the Fortnite content system, where players could buy skins, emotes, items, and more through in-game currency or real money.
Considering the huge furor that resulted over loot boxes following EA Games’s release of Star Wars Battlefront 2, which had loot boxes that would cause players to have to either grind for special hero characters or pay exorbitant amounts of money for them, which resulted in a huge amount of controversy for the company and a backlash against the practice of loot boxes.
Whether this turns out to be the new Black Ops 4 content system when that game comes out remains to be seen, but considering how soon Black Ops 4 will be coming out, there’s no telling what it will end up being.
