Dead Space 3 Has Micro Transactions
Do you want to buy a specific weapon, but don’t have the necessary resources, and don’t feel like searching for them? No problem! Open your wallet and it’s yours!
Apparently ‘Dead Space 3′ will feature micro transactions for it’s weapon crafting system.
If you can’t create a weapon because you don’t have the necessary resources, a message will pop up which will offer you the ability to get some additional parts through “downloadable content”.
The resources needed for crafting weapons can be located in 3 ways: you can pick them up yourself, send out scavenger bots to forage for them or, apparently, conveniently buy them from the in-game store. The game’s associate producer Yara Khoury stated the following:
“You can buy resources with real money, but scavenger bots can also give you the currency that you can use on the marketplace. So you don’t have to spend [real world] dollars.“
Even so, you cannot buy the best weapon the game has to offer, and cut through the necromorphs like through cheese. Khoury added:
“No you can’t!” she explained. “There are a lot of weapon parts that are only available to buy later in the game. Unless you’re playing through it again [on New Game Plus].“
Pricing for the extra resources hasn’t been revealed, but Khoury explained that different sized packs will be available for varying costs.
‘Dead Space 3′ will be the second game from EA to include micro transactions, the first one being ‘Mass Effect 3′, which allowed you buy reinforcement packs when playing the game’s multiplayer modes.
