It was reported earlier this week that the game Deus Ex Mankind Divided will have microtransaction. Most people believe that it will not affect the gameplay of the game in general although those willing to spend a little bit more might have an easier time. Because of that, people does not seem to be too affected by the news however, there are some who are slowing started to question if microtransactions in AAA games will be the norm of the future?
We think that most poeple would rather not have microtransactions in the game but would tolerate it if it actually does not affect the gameplay. The developers of Deus Ex also made sure that their fans are not constantly reminded of the option so their fans do not feel that it is intrusive and annoying. If the microtransaction ends up changing the way certain people can play the game, the gamers will probably have a totally different reaction to it.
Does that mean that developers should offer more microtransactions in-game in the future? Well, we hope not but let’s not kid ourself here. It is likely that that would be the future of AAA games
