Now Call of Duty: Black Ops III adds upgrade microtransactions

Online shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops III has become the latest premium title to offer in-game upgrades for cash.

This follows yesterday's news that fellow Activision title Destiny has done a similar thing.

Starting some time this week, Black Ops III will start allowing players to obtain the game's in-game currency, Cyrptokeys, for real cash. Cryptokey can be used to buy supply drops, which offer a range of random items, including in-game gear.

Call of Duty points, which can be used to buy the currency, can be purchased in bundles ranging from $1.99 all the way up to $39.99.

The entire range of new items can be obtained by simply playing the game and trading the Cryptokeys you earn for Supply Drops in the Black Market,” the publisher said.

However, for fans that want to secure additional Supply Drops in multiplayer or Vials of Liquid Divinium in zombies, we're introducing Call of Duty Points – a new optional virtual currency for players on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans can now purchase Call of Duty Points and use them to acquire Rare Supply Drops in Black Ops 3.”
