Regardless, EA and DICE have both said that only cosmetic items will be offered for sale
Title is misleading, it's already known that there is option to buy only cosmetics with real money currency
Exactly but the mad trolls want to push their agenda narrative of "EA is 100% evil" They run a business first and foremost. You aren't obligated to buy the game and they aren't entitled to your money. Try finding other games to play if you don't like BF5....literally thousands of worthwhile games to play. Go enjoy life instead of complaining you trolls. So many angry idiots because they don't 100% get their way.
the fact you ignore how much of a cancer EA's practices are to gaming compared to most shows your pathetic ignorance
Wow, we have EA fanboys now?
@letsa_go We still have Konami shills in here who defended their attempt to block Kojima's employees from getting insurance so I mean....
@345, 'mad trolls' lol, you really got it bad. Its nothing to do with entitlement fgs, so people should just accept this bullcrap from greedy devs and pubs and just keep their mouths shut, fat chance. You are correct though, people should speak with their wallets as its the only language they understand. Tbh you sound like a corporate shill with that little rant.
Fun... times... ahead... I... can... imagine..
But weren't people raving about microtransactions when they are "only cosmetics".
It's still pure cosmetics you can just buy them with real money or leveling up...
Believe me, companies like EA are gonna rape people and their wallet when they support these “cosmetics only” MTs. Instead of lootbox, this game is gonna be built around MTs. Fu*k EA.
@Kun_ADR It's not raping if you support and purchase said items.
@gaming, the point is those said items have no place in full price games optional or not. Greed pure n simple.
They did rant, yes. This is what always happens: thr greedy conglomerates go too far and then all-of-a-sudden the old greedy ways don't look so bad. They are bad
Yes they are bad I agree. But it's a million times better than having to pay £40 for a premium pass so I can play the new DLC maps. Also at least I can pay for a skin I do want. Instead of gambling my money on a lootbox and hope I get the skin I want. I think it's a fair trade off. Free DLC but they give people the option to to use real money to buy a skin. Since I can't care any less about weapon skins this is great for me.
Cosmetics that don’t fit the game. They’ve turned WWII into a cosplayers closet.
Typical MT tactic. Spender does't feel like he is spending real money which makes him spend more.
What the hell does that mean?
EA: Dont worry, MTS will only be cosmetic - goes and build whole game around cosemetics
That's the feel I'm getting also
People do realise like all EA big titles the bad news is going to be on a slow drip until launch
and yet the idiot gamers will still complain one way or another
Please explain to me why these “cosmetics only” MTs is a good thing? When all of those MTs could have already been unlockable/free in the game that you had paid full price at $60?
This comment makes no sense. Cosmetic only mt are a good thing. You think adding new cosmetics after launch are all going to be free. You think you'll get no cosmetics just playing the game? All gameplay related content is free. Having the new skin will require money, or maybe even earn able too. But a quick unlock. This is Battlefield, battlefield is the one EA series where they're not pulling scams and usually pretty generous with
Teflon, they are going to sell ~15 million copies of the game. If they can't turn a profit off that amount of sales without gouging consumers then DICE needs to go under.
@Kun_ADR Simple logic which you obviously are failing to realize. You do not have to purchase them. I'm sure there will tons of skins already to unlock. Along with events to obtain them etc.
Honestly it's the $60 price tag that's the problem. MTs and DLC came to be because the price of games hasn't increased in the last 20+ years to match inflation. Gamers now really shouldn't be blaming companies for wanting to make money, they should be blaming the obnoxious gamers for bitching about the price of games, even though $60 for a AAA title is the relative cheapest it has ever been in history. Unfortunately, we are now a point of no return, where even if gaming prices increased to match inflation, MTs and DLC wouldn't go away. Angry vocal gamers figuratively f*cked us all for all time.
@clanpsi Then they should just increase the price of the game. Make it a standard. Buy once get everything. Instead of nickle and dime the customer to the bone with MT like it is a F2P game. I’m sorry, but I don’t support these corporates and their bullshits, especially when companies like Sony and Nintendo have shown us that MTs or lootboxes are not the only way to earn money.
Please be nothing like BF1. BF4 owns it.
BF4 wasn't good, either. It's been downhill every version since BC2.
I mean basically every game nowadays have this type of stuff... Why is this news worthy?
As long as it's only cosmetic and not locked in loot boxes. I'm good
They wil just do what Activision does with cod and have something similar to cod points. I dont mind if it's cosmetic only and you can earn in game anyways that's just there for people who haven't got the time to put the hours in. I prefer this than the Crappy season pass that just seperartes the player Base.
I'm not surprised. Making a WWII game that looks nothing like the time period, and then charging you to make it so. That's pretty low. It should have been fantasy cosmetic microtransactions for people that don't care that millions of soldiers died for their freedoms and against an oppressive cult for them.
Well if its only for cosmetics it shouldn't be an issue, but be aware that the moment they put a single gun behind a purchase that immediately makes the game pay 2 win status.
WWII is now a cosplayers closet. So glad post scriptum is incredible.
I expect the Tides of War campaigns, kind of like the Fortnight Battle Pass system, will cost money. Not saying that I approve the idea... just an expectation from EA. Anyone else thinking this?
Cosmetics are harmless and don't change the core gameplay. As long as they can still be earned by leveling up without needing to spend a penny, that's fine with me, personally.
Don't worry people there will be loot boxes as well, to go along with Veteran Edition, Gold Edition, Deluxe Edition, Ultra Deluxe Edition, Collectors Edition etc.
And Star Cards won't significantly impact gameplay, right DICE?
Damn it I knew there was a catch.
If you people think EA is only doing MT on cosmetics you are dumb,just watch after BF V gets release and MT showing up in new type of guns and attachements,nice new helmets...just wait.
I'm just waiting for them to start charging £££ for ammo!.
