DOOM Won’t Feature Microtransactions, New Gameplay Footage Surfaces Online
In recent times, many high profile AAA releases have started featuring microtransactions for their online modes, allowing players to obtain a variety of advantages by purchasing them with real money. Yesterday, mention of consumable items that give players advantage in multiplayer matches has been made in the DOOM’s release date announcement, a mention that has made some fear that DOOM will eventually include microtransactions. Thankfully, it seems like this won’t be the case.
A few hours ago Bethesda’s Pete Hines has confirmed that DOOM will not feature any microtransaction, so there won’t be any quick way to obtain additional hack modules.
