Ever since it was revealed that Dead Space 3 would be featuring micro-transactions during the main single player campaign, players have been fearing that this was going to become standard practice for a lot of games, especially most of the ones getting published by Electronic Arts. Luckily it doesn’t look like that is the case: Army Of Two: The Devil’s Carter has been confirmed to not have any type of microtransactions.
The news has been confirmed by EA themselves at a recent preview event: during a roundtable discussion with Producer Greg Rizzer it’s been confirmed that the game won’t feature any kind of micro-transactions, even for multiplayer components. Everything the game has to offer will be available in game and won’t cost any real money. This is really good news: the way it’s been worded, it looks like we also won’t be getting any DLC which actually unlocks something that’s already included in the game.
With this whole issue sorted out, it’s unknown if the Dead Space 3 model has been successful or not: EA has stated numerous times that the micro-transactions model will be more central in the future but the lack of inclusion on other recent games makes us think that gamers may have not liked it as much as EA does.
