Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 microtransactions coming to PS3 and PC on April 12

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Micro Items are coming to PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on April 12, an official Call of Duty blog revealed.

The microtransactions were introduced to the Xbox 360 version of the game last month. At the time, Activision maintained that the Micro Items were personal customizations and won't affect the gameplay.

The blog, manned by Activision's social media manager Dan Amrich, clarified that microtransactions are not covered by the game's Season Pass.

Current Micro Items include themed weapon packs, extra Create-a-Class slots, additional media storage and geographical flag-themed calling card packs.

As part of the microtransaction roll-out, the Nuketown 2025 map will release as a free dowload for the PlayStation 3 and Windows PC, as it was for the Xbox 360 version. The map will eventually be included into normal rotation on all three platforms.

Amrich also addressed players questions in the blog post about Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC for the Wii U. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Revolution DLC was released on the Xbox 360 on Jan. 29 and PlayStation Network and Windows PC on Feb. 28.

"I ask for updates every couple of weeks, but so far, I am not hearing a definitive yes or no, which means it's not a lost cause but it's not a done deal," he wrote. "I will continue to follow up and I will post whatever I learn."
