While the Call of Duty series has delivered enterainment to a vast sector of players for over a decade, publisher Activision has also looked to help military veterans through their homegrown charity. Call of Duty Endowment has seen tremendous growth over the past couple of years and now Activision is looking to further help veterans through some new Black Ops 4 content.
On Tuesday, Activision released the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 C.O.D.E. Jump Pack. This package offers up various items for Black Ops 4's Blackout battle royale mode. Players can equip a special wingsuit, a themed parachut, and distinct trail and use them in any of their Blackout game sessions. All proceeds will go directly to Call of Duty Endowment and help the effort to find high-quality jobs for veterans returning from service.
Apart from the C.O.D.E. Jump Pack, Activision will offer also up a special PlayStation 4 theme, seen in the header image above. The "Night Raid" theme is designed by Marine Corps veteran and Terminal Lance writer/artist Max Uriarte. This will sell for $2.99 with all proceeds going towards Call of Duty Endowment.
"As a theme for PlayStation 4, I wanted to do something that invoked a mood much like some of the best moments in the Call of Duty games," Uriarte told the Activision blog. "I wanted to capture that feeling of anticipation at the moment the flares light up and the Marines get ready to assault."
Call of Duty Endowment is coming off a record-setting 2018. It has helped over 50,000 military veterans find gainful employment across the United States and United Kingdom since it was founded.
