Bethesda has revealed a few more details about Fallout 76's microtransactions currency, Atoms.
Make a unappealing game less appealing Good one Bethesda
If they pulled an Overwatch and used that money to give all the players the content for free, keeping the community unified, then I'd support that. I doubt it though. I'm not sure if I'm even getting the game at this point. It's horribly optimized with a month to go -_-
Overwatch aren't any better. It was a barebones game at launch, and still is. The cosmetics in it should have been unlock able through challenges and progression, not loot boxes
This is the only form of MT's that im perfectly fine with.
Or better yet, how about no microtransactions on a $60 game period.
Yeah but it looks like MT's are here to stay no matter how much you and I would rather not have it at all. All im stating is if we must have this despite how others feel about it, i wish for it only be cosmetically. The reality is, if a developer can find a way to nickel and dime us... and people out there are actually spending money on this they will do it. Which i dont blame them from a business standpoint. I would just hope they invest some of that damn money into making better stability in games, newer engines, and even newer i.p.'s. If mt's made all the difference if a developer a lot of people favor from closing their doors forever i say frick it go on ahead. Id rather not see people lose their jobs that are just doing what they are told.
Exactly. Look at Spider-Man. $60 game with a ton of unlockable non-MT suits to run around in.
Except that’s a dumb model when talking about an online multiplayer focused game. It’s 2018 gramps, time to exit the 2009 train.
Agreed. They just don't belong in full price games, they should just be for free to play games.
Saw this coming.
I hope so, they announced cosmetic only microtransactions back in June. Also that game content would be free so no one is separated.
Microtransactions suck but if its only for cosmetic upgrades it a huge whatever.
Aaah watch how this flops and will eventually add crossplay to justify their actions and still flop
How would crossplay justify "their actions?" What does that mean?
Got time for micro transactions? ✅ Complain that Sony doesn’t allow crossplay? ✅ Lie and say crossplay was never gonna happen? ✅ Slowly become a shit company like the rest? ✅
They really should delay this game till Spring.
Oh man, microtransactions, who didn't see this coming.
ha ha ha, wonder how long before they start charging people for mods, you know its coming now they are pushing their platform, these delvelopers are crap, the modding community keeps this company relevant
I wished there no MTs in any AAA console game
If MT's are going to be apart of a full priced game. Then DLC needs to be free in my opinion. Also don't lock cosmetics behind MT's. Sure if someone want's to spend £3 on a certain outfit or what ever then fine. But allow the players who don't want to spend even more money on their full priced game to unlock it via doing in game challenges.
I would read this article, but turning off Adblock is not going to happen.
I wonder did EA have a microtransaction seminar in some expensive resort and invited every video game company on the block? I was going to get Fallout 76 but microtransactions think I'll skip the game
No complaints from me. If someone wants to pay to alter the appearance of a character they rarely see, its fine with me.
