Would you Adam and Eve it? Ubisoft has announced that their upcoming game Assassins Creed: Syndicate, the latest entry in their annual franchise, will feature microtransactions to “save time and accelerate progress.” Though, there may be no need to get your Alan Whickers in a twist just yet, as senior producer Francois Pelland told IGN that the microtransactions will not cut off any content from the player and were added for people who don’t have time to unlock all the content the traditional way.
“The model for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is quite similar to Black Flag, allowing players who do not have time to fully explore our huge game world to still be able to eventually acquire the game’s most powerful gear as well as other items. Rest assured, all of AC Syndicate’s content is available without paying anything additional and the game has been balanced such that microtransactions are 100 per cent optional.” – Francois Pelland
Fans who spent their hard-earned bees and honey on Ubisoft’s previous Assassin’s Creed game (Unity) were not too happy about the game’s $100 worth of microtransactions. As always, this brand of microtransaction can probably be forgiven providing the game is not artificially altered in some way to increase the appeal of these boosters. Will you have the lager and lime to complete Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate without spending the extra sausage and mash?
AC: Syndicate comes to PS4 and Xbox One on October 23rd with the PC release coming November 19th.
