On November 6, Activision revealed what bonuses players with PlayStation will receive in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – among them there were two additional slots for assemblies, monthly events with double experience, a 25% bonus to weapon experience when playing in a group with another user PS4 and PS5, plus 5 additional skip levels when purchasing a bundle that gives 20 levels at once. Thus, on PS4 and PS5 players will receive 25 levels.
The community took these bonuses negatively – the players accused Activision of anti-consumer attitude towards Xbox and PC users, given that they receive less for their money than they used the PlayStation.
Prior to this, Activision also announced that the Zombies Onslaught mode will be exclusive to the PlayStation for a year – previously similar bonuses were already offered for previous Call of Duty games on PS4.
Players have begun to agree that Activision is turning PlayStation into the preferred platform for Call of Duty, with a better chance of being successful in the game and getting more content.
PlayStation has long been a Call of Duty partner with Activision, and as a result, beta testing of games in the series, including Black Ops Cold War, was primarily conducted on the Sony platform.
Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13th.
