Fans of the Dead Space series may get a different kind of scare this time around after producers announce micro-transactions into the game.
But folks shouldn’t stress about it too much because there are other ways of beefing up the Plasma Cutter. Here is what the game’s associate producer Yara Khoury had to say about the newest addition.
"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."
Does that mean a player can fully improve all the weapons right off the bat? “No you can’t," said Khoury. "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]."
This will be the first game of the Dead Space trilogy to approach the micro-transaction option, but it’s not the first time for an EA-published title to have the feature.
Previous games like Madden 12 added Madden Cards to vastly improve football teams and players and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 put in the ability for players to buy coins to upgrade golfer attributes and unlock golf courses.
