Black Ops 2 Customisation DLC Packs Heading To LIVE


For the first time in Call of Duty history – and there’s a lot of history!, Activision will offer micro-transaction items that can be purchased from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace to offer you more options in styling your weapons and load-out.

Activision’s Dan Amrich has described the priced content as…

either personal customization’s or nice little luxuries, none of which affect gameplay and are simply small, specific ways to enhance your online experience. At the end of the day, all of these items are completely optional, and were created for players who’ve asked for more customization options. If that’s not you, that’s fine; everybody gets Nuketown 2025 for free, so definitely take advantage of that.

There will be a range of Personalisation Packs that contain weapon camo’s, calling cards and reticles for 160 MS Points, Extra Slots Pack to bump an extra ten Creat-a-Class slots and media storage space, Flags of the World Calling Cards for 80 MS Points each and the option to purchase the Nuketown 2025 Zombie Map for 400 MS Points.

The good news is if you don’t want to purchase anything at all the Nuketown 2025 Multiplayer Map will be free for everyone – if you’re yet to meet a player without it, spread the news…

Thanks MCV
