With “Call of Duty Points” having already been gifted to players who bought the Digital Standard or Digital Deluxe Edition, we knew it was only a matter of time before Call of Duty: WWII microtransactions were introduced into the game.
That day of reckoning will be November 14, as confirmed by Activision Support and the following in-game Message of the Day:
Digital Standard and Digital Deluxe Editions:
Your 1,100 COD Points bonus will be delivered to your in game when COD POints become available on November 14 at 9AM PT. No code or redemption required.
This in-game message also confirmed that COD Points will be used to buy both multiplayer and zombies Rare Supply Drops, with players deciding which type they’d prefer.
What with opening Supply Drops in CoD: WWII being a public event that everyone can see happen, I expect even more people will be buying COD Points. Smart thinking on Sledgehammer Games’ part, I suppose.
