Ghost Recon Breakpoint has multiple currencies, but everything is for sale.
Can this game just unrelease itself and go f*** off?
It can...but that's hidden behind another micro-transaction.
Don't forget it'll F-off three days early with the ultra super duper extra special important deluxe edition.
Heyooooooo good one ak , don’t buy this shit
Pmsl, best comment ever
It's a surprise mechanic: "Surprise! You have to purchase everything in the game to play it".
Can't wait for «It's just options! It's for the players» excuses. I don't get why this «pay to not play the game» is even a thing. You pay $60 to buy the game and then you pay even more just to not play it, why buy the game then? You know, i think, that Sony, Microsoft, Steam, Epic, GOG and other platform holders must outright ban any microtransactions for games that cost money. So no one would be able to sell then in Playstation Store, Xbox Store, Steam and others. Even if the game costs just $0.01. Unless something of that magnitude happens, publishers and developers will keep pushing the boundaries. I bet soon they'll add some sort of counter, like you can't access X part of the game unless you buy Y of microtransactions or use Z «time savers» or whatever dumb name they'll come up with. Or you can play the mode, but you will be limited, for instance, you're playing Capture the flag, you can kill enemies, but you can't capture the flag itself, unless you're paying for «flag holsters» or something. Sadly, voting with our wallets doesn't work.
You think the platforms that make money off microtransactions must ban microtransactions? You should stop and think for a minute. Every company you named except for GOG has priced games with microtransactions
Yes, i completely understand that not only platform holders have paid games with microtransactions, but they're also getting a certain percentage from every microtransaction sold. So in a way, they're in a symbiotic relationship with publishers, the more microtransactions are sold on their platforms, the more money both of them are getting. I don't expect them to just do that, because they're so caring and kind (they are not, their prime directive is to earn the most money). And i don't think that we, as a customers/consumers, can do anything about it either (anymore). Even if most of us agree not to buy they game and any of the microtransactions (and actually follow through), there will still be some people who'll buy the game and be like «hey, this gun just costs $5, buying it will save me so much time *credit card swipe*». Publishers will still get their money in the end. My original post wasn't about «Please, companies, do that!», it was more about some «game changer» need to happen or this will get worse and worse, sorry if my wording was off and/or confusing!
It's only going to get worse with these services people are praising now days. This will be the only way developers really make their money. It's cheap now but the price will go up because developers will ask for more money. It will be a never ending cycle and then more subscriptions will be made from more companies. It getting off of subject but they go hand and hand in my eyes. No one has time to do anything anymore. Now, they make games like RPGs with the leveling but then you can buy everything lol. What a great option right? I realize that not all people have the time to invest in these games but there has to be a line drawn somewhere. Oh well, we are getting exactly what we deserve. Sad reality but true. And I'm really starting to get burnt out on all these open world games. I liked Wildlands but I also got the game pretty late for only $20. I can clearly just go and beat the game but I want to get all the weapons and attachments. Why I don't know because it really makes no difference lol but these new side missions keep popping up and it keeps me off track. I'm in the tier levels and I should just go and beat the game but I always feel like I'm not completing the game if I don't do the side content as well. Hard to explain but I hope my point is coming across. And this is why, open world games are really starting to get to me. I need to stop. I have this love/hate relationship with gaming now days and the fanboys just make it worse lol. My love of gaming is also my curse because I like to now the latest news but I also read comments and listen to a few on YouTube. Maybe I need to cut the last 2 points off my list and things will get better. I don't know....help lol. Happy gaming people...
GRAW was such a great game, can we just get a remaster of that please?
No, we wont. For the same reason Activision is rebooting COD:MW and now giving us a MW2 remaster. The same reason EA gave us Battlefield: V and not a BC2 remaster. The remasters would cannibalize their MTX cash cows.
Give me a Black Ops 1 remaster.
Modern Warfare Remastered has MTs in them. So it doesn't matter if Activision remastered MW2.
I would just settle for GRAW and the rest of the games added to the Xbox1X enhanced list.
Loot shooter mechanics do not belong in Ghost Recon and Assassins Creed, they're copy and pasting this formula for every game.
The only way we can stop this happening is by not buying the game, and being vocal to Ubi about why. Enough people were vocal to EA for them to U turn, the same can happen if enough people kick up a fuss. We're always going to get those idiots with more money than sense that will buy stupid things because they are impatient and the stuff is there to buy, but if enough of us disgusted gamers are vocal enough, in enough numbers then maybe devs will listen. Just maybe. But the chance is there. I'm hoping these sort of things get outlawed soon.
They know by now... imo this was just a throw away game to test how far they can go.
Except, WE, don't have any control over what other gamers buy. I personally don't have issues with microtransactions. They are in business to make money. Not saying it is right. It just is and not going anywhere.
But this isn't evil EA releasing pay to win this is just Ubisoft being nice and giving you an opportunity to buy a time saver...
Didn't they shoehorn in loot mechanics too? If the best items can be purchased for real money, doesn't that make this p2w?
Ubisoft has always been pretty blunt with their in game purchasables. They're actually worse than EA & Activision when it comes to microtransactions, so I'm not surprised at all. Haven't bought a game from Ubi since AC3 and don't intend on any time soon
Absolute joke, hope this shit flops
Hope this finds ins way onto g2a cheap by Xmas. Il finish wildlands before trying breakpoint
"we just want to save you time" well I don't have your game so I'm saving money & time congrats
It's horrible, it's like alot off games now a days are just shops for people to ruin themselves money wise... So sad
Wow, I'm disappointed but honestly not surprised and looks as if we'll be seeing these companies repeat themselves into next gen.
Back in the PS2 days, we had cheat codes for this.
Eff you Ubisoft
That's disgusting and screw people who are ok with or support this
This is probably one of the worst cases of microtransactions where literally everything is for sale with real money in a game. Sad thing is, no matter how much we complain about this people are still gonna buy it. Our voices don't mean much to Ubisoft because all they care about is profit and putting little originality into their games.
The theme song for this game should be Vince McMahon's walk-out theme music on WWE..... money money money money money money money money money, dolla dolla, dolla dolla…. bling bling, ching ching, dolla dolla!
LOL! But that's actually Shane McMahon's entrance theme music.
Not everything can be bought. I couldn't find a single way to purchase "Fun"
If you are going to add loot boxes to hell and back, the game should be FTP.
"Every item in Ghost Recon Breakpoint can be purchased with real money" Of course it is. It is beyond me that there are still people who support this. Mark my words, Watch Dogs 3 is going to be an even bigger loot box mess.
Every single item in the game. Wow. What happened to just selling a game? Next you'll be able to pay for sun and furniture in games.
Thats awesome. I can play the game like a normal game or I can be a sucker and buy shit I can just earn by playing the game. I'm glad they are draining the banks of suckers tbh.
Can every item be obtained through playing the game also? As in no exclusive store item?
No loot boxes though! Got em!
Now ... take this same irritation and direct it at Activision as well. But most of the people commenting not to buy this microtransaction filled game will buy the new COD.
They surpassed Anthem in terms of being horrible. This is like a compilation of all the most disgusting AAA sludge of gaming.
Great. Now i can just BUY everything and NOT play the game. I really hope they bring TIMESAVERS back since the community made EA, I mean Ubisoft backpeddle on them [sarcasm].
Not feeling the vibes with this one. Clear skip for me.
I bought this game without looking at any reviews on hearing the media tell you guys to be oh so upset about the micro transactions. Guess what the game is fantastic and fans of wild lands will love it. I’ll never buy a micro transaction so they have zero effect on my enjoyment of the game. The gaming media needs to be put in its place. People work hard on these games and companies invest millions in them only to have them bashed by websites with a click driven agenda. True journalism looks at a subject with an open mind not with its mind made up from the beginning. Also you younger people need to find the value of thinking for yourself and not letting the media tell you how to think. If you haven’t played the game you really can’t trash it.
I had a lot of fun with Wildlands & I haven't played Breakpoint & never will because it requires internet connection to play the campagin. I don't buy GAAS games. $60 for a rental just isn't appealing to me. Additionally It looks like they have Divisioned up GR with Breakpoint & I don't like the Division. This is me thinking for myself, not going by any website. They lost me at mandating log in for single player.
He is roght it is a great game. But I only found out about the always online campaign agter I bought the game and was super bummed. Other than that i am happy with it. I hope they change it in an update bc now I'm super worried about my internet going down and not being able to play it gor that time.
