Black Ops 4 Microtransactions are here and it isn’t good news.
Unsurprisingly, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 microtransactions are here… Oh the joy… The latest update on PlayStation 4 brings COD Points, (the real money currency) online.
As of now, real money can be used to bypass the grind for tiers in the Black Market. You can spend COD points on additional Nebulium Plasma for Zombies, or on Special Orders.
Now, Black Market tiers can be purchased directly, at 100 COD Points each. That means it’s roughly $200 dollars to progress from the first level to level 200. If, you decide not to pay, the progression would take hundreds of hours to complete… And that is just for the first season.
Interestingly, once you hit tier 200, a further set of tiers opens up with access to basic reserves items. As YouTuber RaidAway discovered, you can keep buying those with ‘no limit’.
The Black Market tiers do only offer cosmetic items which is one thing. This means, players who don’t want to grind or spend real money aren’t missing anything substantial.
That said, that does not make this OK. When games use real money (DLC/microtransactions) to add things that should have already been included. Or, to unlock things that would take an unreasonable amount of time to get is NOT acceptable.
Pay to win content is worse than the two listed above and should be banned.. Of course this is just my opinion and I won’t get into that now..
