Fans of the upcoming video game Fallout: New Vegas may not expect something new. Once the game is officially released, the Fallout: New Vegas won’t feature a microtransaction. Obsidian, the game’s developer, announced this development this week through a public forum.
Obsidian, in a statement, has confirmed that the Fallout: New Vegas will not have a microtransactions or loot boxes of any kind. “The answer is simply: no. No microtransactions, of any kind, in our game,” the game developer said.
Fallout: New Vegas is Obsidian’s latest role-playing game. The Fallout: New Vegas was actually confirmed when it was announced on the sideline of GTA and Red Dead company. The Red Dead company Take-Two has a new indie publishing label—the Private Division.
Meanwhile, what we know so far is that Fallout: New Vegas will be published by Private Division. The company also expressed that it wants to implement some form of “recurrent consumer spending” in all of its games. Private Division’s plan, however, remains to be seen as to how it would affect Obsidian’s game in the future.
Why Obsidian picks Take-Two?
Further, Obsidian described its partnership with Take-Two as a fantastic partner. Both companies have inked partnership on several projects. Obsidian has selected Take Two because its workmanship is always aligned with the company’s vision.
“Far from ‘pushing’ us to put anything–microtransactions or otherwise–into our game, Private Division has been incredibly supportive of our vision, our creative freedom, and the process by which we work to make RPGs,” Obsidian said as quoted saying in a Gamespot report.
“They have been fantastic partners, and we are extremely excited to work with them through release, to put what we know is going to be an amazing game into as many hands as possible,” Obsidian added.
Apart from Fallout: New Vegas, Private Division is planning to publish a new RPG which is the Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey created Patrice Desilet, the person who created Assassin’s Creed. Another game is in the studio’s pipeline, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. The game is slated to be released in 2018.
