On November 3, Activision makes its bid for holding the gaming top spot over the holiday period by releasing Call of Duty: WWII. As with all CoD games, it's expected to sell millions and have multiplayer servers humming for many months there after.
To celebrate the launch of the game, Activision has done a deal with Loot Crate to offer a limited edition crate containing at least $90 worth of Call of Duty: WWII goodies. Although the specifics of what's in the box haven't and won't be revealed until you open it, we can expect a range of Call of Duty: WWII-themed and exclusive apparel, collectibles, and "unique licensed products you cannot find anywhere else" according to the Loot Crate page.
This Loot Crate will cost $49.99 plus shipping and handling, which varies depending on where you are in the world. You can expect to pay at least $59.99, though. And as for delivery, you won't receive this crate before the game launches in November. In fact, the only guarantee Loot Crate will give is that it arrives before Christmas Day.

It's easy to guess at the kind of items that will be included in the Loot Crate. A comic, themed storage box, mini figure, and dog tags are all possibilities. The fact this crate asks for a shirt size confirms you're going to get a t-shirt.
If you're a huge Call of Duty fan, then paying $50 for over $90 worth of themed stuff you can't get anywhere else is likely worth it. And if it arrives just in time for Christmas then it's another present to open (and one you probably forgot about by then, so also a nice surprise).
