Dubbed "Micro-Items", the optional "luxury" items will be rolled out to Xbox 360 customers, alongside free access to the Nuketown 2025 map.

Each pack will contain different items aimed at "enhancing the online experience", according to Activision's Dan Amrich.

Personalisation Packs, for example, contain a weapon camo, three targeting reticles and a custom player Calling Card.

Costing 160 Microsoft Points each (£1.36 / $2), one of the Personalisation Packs wraps your weapon in bacon.
