Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is going to be bringing microtransactions to the PS3 and the PC versions on April 12. The Xbox 360 version of the game got these microtransactions earlier this month.
The microtransactions that will be introduced to the Windows and Playstation 3 versions will apparently be identical to the ones that came to the Xbox.
This means that Black Ops 2 gamers will be able to get special weapons and uniform packs when the additions are released on April 12.
The developers and publishers of this game have long claimed that the microtransactions will not directly affect the gameplay. That appears to be a pretty big concern as these sorts of things come to the console.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is just the latest game that has introduced something that used to be recognized as almost exclusive to mobile gaming.
Gears of War: Judgement and Dead Space 3 have both introduced microtransactions this year and EA has said that quite a few of their coming games will have this function as well.
Along with the release of these microtransactions will come the Nuketown 2025 map that was released earlier for the Xbox 360. The companies have said that eventually this map pack will be in the regular rotation for the game.
Activision’s social manager, Dan Amrich also talked about whether or not these microtransactions and expansion DLCs would be coming to the Wii U anytime soon.
The answer won’t make Wii U gamers feel any more comfortable about their choice than they have over the last few weeks.
Armrich said that he is still not able to get a definitive answer on when or if the DLCs that have landed for every other format earlier this year will ever hit the Wii U.
Amrich added that “means it’s not a lost cause but it’s not a done deal.”
