100% of the proceeds will go towards “placing US and UK Veterans into meaningful jobs through the Call of Duty Endowment.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s newest DLC pack – The Call of Duty Endowment Salute Pack – has 100% of the proceeds going towards “placing US and UK Veterans into meaningful jobs through the Call of Duty Endowment.”
Activision Blizzard announced the details of this new in-game pack that is available now and includes an in-game tag, sticker, gesture, calling card, and emblem.
The Call of Duty Endowment Salute Pack is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and retails for $4.99 and, as previously mentioned, 100% of the proceeds will go to help these veterans “secure quality careers when they leave military service.”
“Through in-game purchases like the Salute Pack, gamers have contributed millions towards our mission of helping veterans transition from military to civilian life and aiding veterans in finding meaningful employment,” said Dan Goldenberg, Executive Director of the Call of Duty Endowment.
“We are proud and thankful to be partnering with Treyarch on this new pack alongside the highly anticipated release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.”
The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit foundation that was started in 2009 by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick and has helped over 50,000 veterans. A new goal has recently been set for the foundation to secure career placements of 100,000 veterans by 2024.
A similar pack was released for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and, thankfully, these charitable gestures look to be a mainstay of the series now.
As for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as a whole, we have tried something new and reviewed each of the main modes, Blackout, Zombies, and Multiplayer. In the coming days, will releasing our full review of the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise.
