  • Driveclub's Microtransactions Detailed

    The microtransactions in the upcoming PlayStation 4 racer, Driveclub, have been detailed. The game will feature microtransactions that let you unlock cars early.

    Game Director, Paul Rustchynsky, told IGN that he knows microtransactions are controversial with gamers, so he and his team made sure to ensure the ones in Driveclub do not unbalance the game.

    "Itís been a hot topic of late inside gaming, and weíve been very keen to take on board the feedback from gamers and make sure we donít upset anyone," he revealed. "So, in Driveclub, what weíve done is make sure that the progression system is really straightforward, really simple and gives you access to a lot of content really quickly.

    "In Driveclub you earn Fame, and as you earn Fame, you level up. Every time you level up, we give you another car. Thereís no double gating or anything along those lines, youíre given the car straight away without having to do anything else. The only thing we do have is a couple of shortcuts.

    "If you want to unlock a car immediately, you can pay to unlock that car straight away but itís not a consumable microtransaction. We donít let people buy Fame, for example and spend lots and lots. The idea is if you want to shortcut things you can do Ė itís identical to what we did in Motorstorm RC. So if you played that, you know what weíre doing here."

    Well that doesn't sound too bad, right? Though to be honest, no game should ever have microtransactions but there really isn't too much we can do about that.
