Game developer DICE has officially announced that StarWars: Battlefront will have no microtransactions.
The highly anticipated game does feature in-game credits, but they will be strictly awarded for gameplay performance only.
“The credits that you use to buy things in the game are earned. You play the game, complete challenges, and that’s how you get credits,” says Battlefront Design Director Niklas Fegraeus. “This is a progression system based on your gameplay performance.”
This is great news and it seems like the right move because most developers now-a-days are trading a good-ol-fashion grinding game, for a microtransaction model. Some cases it works amazing, while some cases it doesn’t – as people can basically buy their way through the game.
