The latest from id Software, Doom Eternal is totting an irregular modern feature. No micro-transactions at all.
The game will not have the industry standard of selling little slices of the game post-launch. When the product launches, it will only contain items purchasable with experience points instead of real-world currency.
Creative Director Hugo Martin took to a post on Facebook to make some statements. He expressed a few points:
- No Online Store
- XP unlocks only Cosmetics
- No player abilities affected by unlocks
“Eternal is a $60 game, not a free-to-play game or a mobile game – we are giving you a complete experience”.
Multiplayer micro-transactions did come in the last Doom game. After a whole year, these purchases were eventually made free to all players.
Following a short delay, Doom Eternal is out March 20th, 2020. It will be out on Windows, PlayStation 4, Stadia and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch version planned for a release down the line.
