Call of Duty Championship 2015 takes place in just a few months time and to help build a lil’ bit of hype, Sledgehammer Games have just dropped a brand new pack of skins revolving around the tournament and it’s now available on Xbox Live.
For just $3.99, you can get your hands on the premium Championship 2015 bundle which contains a themed exoskeleton, weapon camouflages, calling card, helmet and reticules. Best of all? It’s covered in gold from top to bottom, as you can see above.
I think this is one of the first times in Call of Duty history where the gold gun camo is well, actually gold, unlike past attempts which have been mustard/off yellow colour.
If that isn’t enough, you can also purchase additional create-a-class and armory slots which add tonnes of new room for just $1.99 a piece.
Disappointingly, Activision have yet to detail whether any of the money from these pack will go towards the Championship 2015 prize pool, similar to what plenty of other eSport tournaments have done in the past.
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…
