From the article, "The inevitable has happened. Call of Duty: Black Ops II microtransactions are coming. Activision is dropping them into the game starting March 13, 2013. Hold back your outrage and frustration, however, as these microtransactions are mostly harmless and won’t break your game. In the case of these add-ons, you probably won’t even notice if people are using them, or if they’re there."
