Activision is set to introduce micro-payments in Call of DutyBlack Ops 2.

According to Activision’s Dan Amrich, a title update releasing for Xbox 360 includes various tweaks, adjustments, improvements and ‘new, optional in-game purchases called Micro Items.

“It contains either personal customizations or nice little luxuries, none of them affect gameplay, all of these items are completely optional, and were created for players who’ve asked for more customization options, but they are small, specific ways to enhance your online experience.” he added.


Multiple packs are set to be introduced, which offers unique weapon camos, three targeting reticules and a custom player Calling Card, including ‘Flags of the World Calling Cards Packs’, which adds “national flag-themed Calling Cards from countries around the world”.

Personalisation Packs will cost 160 Microsoft Points (£1.37) each, with Flags of the World Calling Cards Packs set to cost 80 MSP (69p) each.

The Nuketown Multiplayer zombie map will be available as a standalone purchase for 400 MSP (£3.43), while the Nuketown 2025 multiplayer map, previously a pre-order exclusive, will be released to all for free.

The update also offers a single-purchase ‘Extra Slots Pack’ for 160 MSP (£1.37), offering players ten additional Create-a-Class slots and extra media storage space, letting Theater Mode users archive 20 more emblems, 32 more films and 40 more screenshots.

“At the end of the day, all of these items are completely optional, and were created for players who’ve asked for more customization options,” says Amrich.

“If that’s not you, that’s fine; everybody gets Nuketown 2025 for free, so definitely take advantage of that.”

The content will be released on Wednesday, March 13 for Xbox 360. PC and PS3 at a later date.
