Activision has released a new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. The new patch introduces micro transactions to the game which allows players to buy cosmetic items from loot drops. Recently, it was confirmed by Sony that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was the most downloaded PS4 game last month, which some believed that the bundled inclusion of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered somehow made a difference.
According to the report from Game Rant, though the sales of the franchise as a whole may be down, it is clear to say that some gamers are still dedicated to jump on the nostalgia train and experience the Remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. As a result, it is expected that Activision will introduce micro transactions to the game in its latest update.
As recalled, these new micro transactions were not included in the original game and now it arrives in the form of random loot drops called Supply Drops. It was revealed that the way Activision introduced the new system is a bit reasonable as it will not score too deeply with each player's wallet. In fact the cosmetic items can still be purchased with in-game currency and unlocking it without grinding too much.
Based on the report, the idea of having Supply Drops is derived from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare while they can be purchased either through Call of Duty points or Deposit Credits in Modern Warfare Remastered. These credits can be earned with either in-game or with real money through micro transactions. That means these cosmetics are not locked behind a paygate. In addition, these drops will not grant a pay-to-win advantage either, as these are purely cosmetics which include weapon camos, reticles and new character skins.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is now available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 which is currently bundled with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
