PP: Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world adventure game Immortals Fenyx Rising will indeed have in-game purchases.
A Ubisoft game will have Microtransactions? Impossible /s At least we know games like Spider-Man and Demon's Souls won't have Microtransactions
This makes the game a wait instead of a day 1 because of how bad oddesey was for me. It barely was bearable to play. So now I have to wait and ask people if it's as bad to progress as oddesey or worse. Oddesey pretty much required every side quest in order to advance so they could sell xp boosters
I platinumed Odyssey, but I agree 100% with you. A wait and see approach might actually be a good idea. I barely trust them. Probably going to be a grindfest of a game. But we'll see
***Oddesey pretty much required every side quest in order to advance so they could sell xp boosters*** Well, that's how most games like that work. I mean, you can finish the game without hitting max level, so why would you think you wouldn't here? I mean, that's pretty much how The Witcher and similar games work as well. I got to 50 75% into the game doing the main quests and story-specific side quests. That's not asking too much for a game that doesn't even require you to max out to finish. I will agree that post-game, when they upped the level to 99, you definitely had to work overly hard to get to 99. I never did it, but ended at only level 70 or so with everything done. But, to get to 99, you absolutely had to do those lame filler quests from the statues. Edit: I also agree, though, wait for sales to pick up the "complete" editions for Ubisoft games. Though Fenix seems to be more about backtracking a ton as you pick up new abilities to complete puzzles and what not and not about levels. Even the items in the game don't have levels, just features.
Incorrect. I skipped dozens of sidequests and beat the game just fine. There were a few areas that I couldn't get to right away that required level 50, but by that point I was at level 50 when the story progress took me there anyway. I turned on level scaling. That might've helped. I would recommend anyone do the same thing for Valhalla if it's available. The only thing that was wrong with Odyssey (besides pretty much all the islands looking exactly the same, save for a few), was that the world was too big. Like, way too big. When I played GTAIII and this whole "open world" concept really started to grab me, I never thought I would someday complain about game worlds being too big. Yet here we are.
So basically this game is going to be a sluggish playthrough.
You basically had to buy the 2x Xperia booster. It doubled xp you got from stuff permanently and cost like 5 pounds. I actually gave in and bought it because I was enjoying the gsme enough but I was furious that I felt forced to buy it just to make the game .
It's similar to a Starlink kids game anyway. Not worth it really.
Which ubi game didn't have them lately?
This is my issue with this shithole garbage company, Imagine making games for players to play at their OWN pace only for these greedy retarded fucks to offer xp boosts or resource purchases, like for real? It was proven with the last Dead Space if you weave resources into MTX you corrupt the core structure of your game, wait till Easter when this is 75% off.
Ubisoft are on the list titled - Don't from these scumbags - and it seems that increases yearly instead of degreasing.
oh man cant wait for time savers pack
Is there a micro transaction to change the title of the game and the looks of the protagonist? Lmao that is one generic title character design !
Ubisoft loves that shit. I wonder if these games actually make enough money in MTX to trade off the goodwill not having them would get them. I figure they must. In which case I gotta ask. Who the hell is buying skill upgrades in AC with real cash.
Yeah. Figured this. Microtransactions never really make sense to me in single player games, but I have been able to easily ignore them and forget they are there in ubi games
I was so hyped until this but now no way in huffle.
Did you honestly expect anything else?
I was expected integrity but hey it's ubi for ya always disappointing.
Is anyone surprised that a Ubisoft game has MT?
I mean is anyone surprised?
This journalist and this website is a bad joke and all you people that didnt even read the article. Here allow me to quote the part about MICROTRANSACTIONS "The rating for the game states as part of its consumer advice section that the game has the following: Fantasy themes, violence, online interactivity and in-game purchases. There’s no word on what the online interactivity is, or what the in-game purchases are, but it’s not hard to imagine what Ubisoft will offer to players. Expect the usual time-saver packs and maybe some cosmetic items to be paid-for additions." these 2 paragraphs show you how unprofessional and biased this websire is and therefore causing harm a game or company. in-game-puchases IS not necessary pay to win. In fact! I can bet you that these in-game-transactions are exactly like the ones in Assassin's Creed Odyseey, meaning cosmetic, boost XP and a shiny horse for you to ride etc. But here we are starting to bash on the game when these "journalist" can't even confirm the info he obtained.
Depends on what it is, it’s Ubisoft so who knows. If it’s cosmetics then I don’t care. If it’s a 4 week VIP pass for 20 dollars (whatever the f*** that is) like watchdogs then that’s pretty ass.
Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and more at lowest prices ever in Ubisoft August 2023 Switch eShop sale.

Good month. I recommend PS users to download R6 Extraction. It is seriously a really fun and polished co-op game.
