Call of Duty: WWII’s real money microtransactions will go live a week today when COD Points, the relevant currency, are switched on.

Saving Private Ryan, sure, but where else have you seen those exciting action scenes? Here’s your guide to COD: WW2’s cinematic inspiration.

That’s according to the Activision support site, which says “COD Points become available on November 14 at 09:00 Pacific Time” (or 17:00 GMT). If you pre-ordered the game, you’ll be credited with your 1,100 bonus COD Points at the same time.

COD Points are purchased with real money, and can be exchanged for WW2’s loot boxes. Those loot boxes – called supply drops – can also be awarded randomly through gameplay, or earned by completing specific gameplay challenges called Orders and Contracts. Moreover, they currently contain only cosmetic items, unlike previous Calls of Duty (Black Ops III, for instance, was notorious for including weapon variants with desirable stat changes in its loot boxes).

The prices of COD Points and supply drops have not yet been revealed.
