Some Clarity On Microtransactions In The Next Resident Evil

This morning, the web exploded with rumors that the next Resident Evil game will charge you to continue the game after death, thanks to reports from media outlets at a press event in Spain today.

The story is too old to be commented.

1) These microtransactions are only part of the optional Raid Mode—not the main story. "There are no micro-transactions within the main campaign," a Capcom PR representative tells Kotaku.

2) There are other options. Says Capcom PR:

Regarding your question, players can use "life crystals" when playing through Raid mode in Revelations 2. The crystals essentially act as continues (re spawns) in Raid mode when players die. Blue life crystals can be earned through playing daily missions and red life crystals can be bought. The two crystals act the same, but there's an option to buy if players run out of blue (earned) crystals or don't want to spend the time earning them. If players have both blue and red crystals, the game will prioritize the blue crystals over the red ones. Again, these are only used in Raid mode and not in the main campaign.

Thank god

There shouldn't be micro transactions in the first place DLC I can see or a stupid season pass. But micro transactions are ment for the stupid free games you find on the Iphone. Not a console game like Resident Evil which has hardcore fans since the Playstation 1 days. What's next Call of Duty getting micro transactions to get a special gun which would cost $4.99 to purchase or $3.99 for extra gernades. Why the hell would I buy the game then spend the cash on the yearly membership for say XBL or PSN then have to pay to probably play online then get dinged a stupid micro transaction fee on top of that that's just f*****d up.

I think as gamers we need to speak out about Microtransactions. If this thing takes off, there's no turning back. EA is charging people to fill up their gas tank in need for speed. I can see Capcom going the same route if theres money to be made. Imagine playing Resident evil and you need to save but guess what you have to pay. We need to speak up and vote with our wallets.
When DLC first appeared, I thought it might be a bad idea and now every developers are releasing games with DLC which already exist in the disk we bought. Microstransaction will follow in the foot steps if we dont speak up about it.

Game shouldn't have them anyway

You support this then it will get worse.

It's like seeing a weed in the garden and going "Meh it's not bad I'll do something later" only by then the entire garden is invested with them.

The difference between digital and Disc is big. What you think those 15$ difference will be? My guess aside from more Raid characters is more crystals or something.

Enough with the microtransaction crap that effects gameplay. Skins and other cosmetic items are fine but stuff like this that effects respawns is too much. No one should buy it so they get the message. They make money with this then who knows what they will try to get away with in future titles.

So let me get this straight.

This game is episodic with 4 episodes each costing $25 per! All to be released by March 17, which means that they should all be roughly completed by the developers by now. So in essence they're already bending you over and raping you $100 if you want to finish their game.

On top of that they want micro trans for raid mode as well? Seriously, get the fuck out.

DarkOcelet1415d ago

Lol, no. All 4 episodes together cost 25$. Disc version costs 40$ which includes Hunk and Wesker playable in Raid mode, classic RE and Revelations maps for Raid. Two Untold stories of Moira and Natalia.

Maxor1415d ago

Oh thank god. I saw the price for $25 and I almost shit myself.

Darkwatchman1415d ago

nice incorrect information you've got there about the price of the episodes, buddy
