This is always the line before reviews come out, lets see if they maintain their views afterward.

Alexious70d ago

Do you mean about microtransactions or the amount of post-launch support? Because I don't think they'd u-turn on the former. The latter will likely depend on how many players they have.

Vengeance113870d ago

MTX, its happened before where a companies PR will mention they won't ever have mtx in their game, so reviews will be very positive, then afterwards add them in because nobody goes back to edit reviews once its out.

Before Halo infinite released, they had a documentary and a few blogs on their very own site stating how you can earn the armor without spending money.

What other Arkane game said this and then reversed it?

Did Dishonored 2 or Prey have any MTX in them? I always thought they were known to not be bogged down my microtransactions.

Vengeance113870d ago

Did I say it happened before with Arkane? Read what I said again.
Its happened before for example Activision did it with Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled, where before launch they say mtx would never be added, then after reviews were done, they were added, its a known tactic.
I highly doubt Arkane would do it, but there is always the chance, so as i said, we'll see what they do after reviews are done or if the game doesnt meet sales goals and they feel they need more revenue.

Its 2023, way more games have mtx now than in 2016/17 when Dishonored 2 or Prey were released.

And Arcane belongs to Bethesda. Bethesda belongs to Microsoft. And in Microsoft have a ton of mtx since years. And if I remember it right they did exactly that crap Vengeance mentioned with some of their Forza games.

@Terry and Hofstaderman

Oooh, so MS is going to force Arkane to put MTX in their games. This site always seems to have future sight beyond sight when it comes to MS.

neutralgamer199270d ago


in general that's how it has happened lately. Launch the game and get good review then add stuff like that later. And as far as post launch support goes we will see too. How many other publishers and developers have promised long support yet in a year or so are done with their games

marvel Avengers
mass effect Andromnda
back for blood

let's hope arkane do the right thing but we all know it's all about the money

DOMination-69d ago

Just out of interest, please could you name the tons of MS games that have MTX?

I'm struggling to think of tons of MS games, let alone ones with MTX, outside of the treasure maps in the Horizon games, so I'm intrigued by the statement.

"Did I say it happened before with Arkane?"

My bad, you're in an article about an Arkane game saying this is ALWAYS the line before reviews...I didn't know you were actually referring to Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled, a completely different game.

"I highly doubt Arkane would do it..."

Oh, so you now highly doubt Arkane would do it, which sorta contradicts your first post, but yeah, I agree also. I don't think they would turn around and implement MTX after this statement.

Vengeance113870d ago (Edited 70d ago )

Reading comprehension is hard isn't it? I see it is for you.
Contradict? Nope, not even a little, try again please. What part of "this is always the line thats used before reviews come out" is contradictory? Thats fact, companies always use not adding in mtx as a selling feature. Doesn't matter if they stay the course or not, they do always say this, its a marketing tool.
But im sure you won't understand that. Thinking outside the box is tough for people like you.

gangsta_red70d ago

"Reading comprehension is hard isn't it?"

Yes, so tough that even Alexious had to question exactly what you were referring too.

"What part of "this is always the line thats used before reviews come out" is contradictory?"

Because your reply right after you said, "I highly doubt Arkane would do it,", lol.

"Doesn't matter if they stay the course or not, they do always say this, its a marketing tool."

So, it doesn't matter if they stay the course and stick to what they said, as Arkane always has, it's still a marketing tool that's always said by other games like Crash Nitro...makes perfect sense.

Terry_B70d ago

Your comments are bad. Often really bad.

gangsta_red70d ago

You're not winning any Pulitzer Prize for your comments either wolf

"This is always the line before reviews come out, lets see if they maintain their views afterward"

Awesome news!!!

Great work, Arkane!

Well does the bite back upgrade not count?

I looks like a season pass with new characters and other items. Does that mean you can't but the contents individually and have to buy it all together?

rippermcrip70d ago

No in+game.purchases. But there will be out of game purchases.

oIMyersIo70d ago

Seems like marketing talk.
Happy to be proven wrong but unless this game really gets a solid playerbase, I have a feeling it won’t last long.

SenorFartCushion70d ago

They always say that. We should have this article screencapped for when they go back on this promise.

Lightning7770d ago

"We try to be very clear that there are no microtransactions and there is no store in the game. We're very proud of that. If you find a costume in the game, then you can have it, as simple as that. Other than that, Redfall will be our most supported game post-launch. We went with a server model, so we can update the game constantly. If we see a lot of people falling from ladders and dying, we can update the ladder code. If we see that nobody is playing this character, we can tweak this character and make them more appealing. We have plans for additional guns, costumes, monsters, characters, and more that we can't talk about right now. But we have a strong year of updates, and it's all either in the current game or it will be DLC. We try to do it as fairly as possible for people."

I'm not so much worried about Microtransactions as I am the post launch launch. From the preview there's allot there at launch it does seem to have that Farcry checklist open world style if you're into that.

This statement is weird because didn't they say they were removing the always online requirement?

darthv7270d ago

Maybe they are saving that for another announcement...
