Call of Duty


 

Like it or not, Activision’s subseries-transcending Call of Duty microtransaction currency, COD Points, will be present in the upcoming Black Ops 4.

Following the game’s reveal and the official announcement that it would run exclusively on Blizzard’s Battle.net, the game’s pre-order listing appeared on the online service, which can be seen below. One of the information bullets found below the listing’s pre-order option states that “Call of Duty Points will be accessible in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 once CP are made available in the game,” essentially confirming that they are coming but may not be available at launch.

COD Points have been available in every Call of Duty released since Black Ops III. Commendably, the currency isn’t known to allow gamers to buy gear that would increase their competitive edge, and is instead spent on cosmetic bonuses through various versions of loot boxes.

It is no surprise that COD Points are making their return in Black Ops 4, given the game’s singular focus on multiplayer and co-op modes. Following numerous reports alleging as much, Treyarch finally confirmed Black Ops 4‘s lack of a single-player campaign during the game’s official gameplay reveal event. The closest thing the game will have to a single-player option will be short missions in which players can learn each of the multiplayer Specialist characters, but these will be closer to tutorials than full missions.

Replacing the single-player campaign is a robust battle royale mode, sporting map features, weapons, and other influences from all past Black Ops games. We don’t know how many players the mode will support just yet, but we do know it will be the largest competitive Call of Duty experience ever.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated to launch October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. EGM had the opportunity to try the game’s multiplayer shortly after the reveal event, and some notable changes to the series’ core design had us coming away pleasantly surprised.
