CoD: Black Ops 2 DLC sales to offer support to US veterans

Personalization Packs discounted from Tuesday, profits go to veteran support

Activision and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 developer Treyarch will begin a new drive of support for US veterans from Tuesday, October 8.

From October 8-14, Black Ops 2 players on Xbox 360 will be able to purchase previously-released DLC Personalization Packs at a discounted 25 per cent off their normal pride, with all proceeds going to the Call of Duty Endowment.


The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit, public benefit corporation created by Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, which supports US soldiers in their transition back to civilian life, including job placement and training.

"This is a great opportunity for the Call of Duty community to get involved, and we're delighted to work with Treyarch and our friends at Xbox to donate all profits from this activity toward helping vets find good jobs," said the Call of Duty Endowment executive director, Dan Goldenberg.

"For most veterans, there's nothing more important to easing their transition back into the civilian world than finding meaningful work."

Treyarch head Mark Lamia commented, "With this drive, we continue to pledge our support to the Call of Duty Endowment in support of veterans, and really appreciate everyone in our community who contributes to this great cause and gives back."

Black Ops 2's fourth and final DLC add-on expansion, 'Apocalypse', was released on PS3 and PC on September 26, a month after its arrival on Xbox 360.

Weighing in at around 1.98 GB, Apocalypse features two new multiplayer maps, two "completely re-imagined" ones, plus a fresh Zombies level called 'Origins'.
