Assassin’s Creed Unity will include microtransactions, the game’s developer has confirmed.
The game’s senior producer Vincent Pontibrand told Total Xbox that paying real money will unlock new gear faster, but it won’t compromise the core values of the game.
Pontibrand said: “Companion apps, monetisation, other business models, digital only… We have to be reactive to these things, but not necessarily fundamentally change what we’re trying to do.”
Focusing on microtransactions, he continued: “If we think it fits the gameplay, or the brand itself, the core values, we’re willing to take those risks. If not, then not. We’re not going to make any compromises.”
Assassin’s Creed: Unity launches on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 28th.
