PES 2015 is to introduce microtransactions with the game’s new MyClub mode, a twist on Master League Online that will allow users to build their own team and purchase new players via in-game currency or real world cash.
MyClub is described by Konami as an “extensive Master League Online overhaul” that “allows players and managers to be added using accumulated GP or via micro-transactions within club dealings”.
“If you don’t have a lot of time then you can – with microtransactions – go and buy the great players that you want,” James Cox, PES UK studio head told VideoGamer.com this afternoon. “But you also can earn the Game Points in [MyClub] and other parts of PES as well. We’re trying to link things together. You can earn a few Game Points in training, exercises and other things, so you can progress through and build your team by just earning [GP] in the game.
“The idea is we’re trying to give players a choice of what they want to do. Some people will have more time, some people will have more money. You’ll have the choice.”
