The CoD Points microtransaction system has worked out rather well for Activision in previous Call of Duty releases, so it’s probably not too surprising to hear that the system will be returning yet again in Call of Duty: WWII.
For those who don’t know, CoD Points are a form of virtual currency that can be bought using real money. A player who buys a pack of CoD Points can then use them to purchase in-game items, most commonly random “Supply Drops” that can contain new cosmetic items like calling cards, scope reticles, weapon camos, and more. Sledgehammer Games has said in the past that Supply Drop items in Call of Duty: WWII will be purely cosmetic at launch, but if previous Call of Duty games are anything to go by, that will likely change sometime after the WWII shooter’s launch.
Those who pre-order Call of Duty: WWII will be given a free cache of 1,100 CoD Points, ensuring they can go on a little bit of an in-game spending spree when the game launches on November 3.
