Default COD: BO4 Blackout on the PC - pricing...

I am kinda enjoying Blackout on the free trial this week for call of duty...

Looks like right now, it's $55 (cdn?) on Blizzard/Battle dot net.

Do you think it will go any lower?

I am just getting started in PC gaming, and already own the standard edition of BO4 on the xbox one...

Been on the xbox platform for 15 yrs, and have 100's of friends on my friends list, probably about 20-30 of them that I play with monthly, and maybe 10-15 that I play with at least a few times a week....

They're 'grey market' resellers. You can see some info here;

With G2A, your code will almost certainly work (as long as it's not region locked), but it can, in theory, be revoked at any time as chances are it's being sold outside of the terms of agreement.

There's also an argument that since you're skimping on cost to buy a grey market key you're hurting developers, but that's a long discussion in itself.

Thx for the insight....

I'll think about it.

I already have a full cost regular version of the game for the Xbox one... So I did support the developers fully there.....

Fair enough, it should drop on a legit key site reasonably soon, almost all the 'flavor of the year' series that have 1-2 releases annually like COD, sports games, etc all drop reasonably quickly. It won't be down to $30 right away, but their full price lifespan is pretty short.

If you're not familiar with it you can sign up to 'isthereanydeal' and set price alerts and notifications for when it goes on sale to legit stores. It's pretty handy, but will cause your steam collection to grotesquely swell ;)

Depends on how long you are willing to wait.
My 2 cents.
BO4 is pretty popular right now it might go on sale but i doubt it will anytime soon.
Its a pretty good game tbh it offers a lot of different game types / modes etc.

The only bad thing about waiting is you will miss out on the heyday of the game . i know that sounds silly but the games been out since Oct 12 2018.
And one thing about games now a days is their shelf life can be somewhat shorter. The game offers really no single player so playing it when it has the most people participating is likely your best experience.
