Ubisoft: How Far Cry 5’s Microtransactions Work?

Avid fans of Far Cry 5 has expressed concerned about the use of the game’s microtransactions. Until now, microtransactions are still a debated subject among players.

 

The implementation of microtransactions varies, and they work differently at any game. The varied implementation of microtransactions has become a serious concern for several players.

With the release of Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5, we will know how the game developer implemented the microtransactions in the game. It can be recalled that the game developer announced that Far Cry 5 would include microtransactions.

 

In a Gamespot report, Executive producer Dan Hay explained that Far Cry 5’s microtransactions would not attempt to inhibit the gamer’s progress.

 

“We’ve set the game up to be generous. We’ve set the game up so…nothing is locked [away]. You can go out and explore, and the game will reward you for your exploration,” Hay said.

Here’s how microtransaction works?

 

In case you don’t know, the game’s microtransaction allows players to use real-world money to buy a premium currency called Silver Bars. The game’s premium currency could be used by players to buy cosmetic skins for their weapons, and vehicles. Not also that, players could use the Silver Bars to buy cosmetic skins for themselves.

 

Buying the cosmetic skins for players themselves is possible only when players are playing the game in Arcade mode. This situation is not clear as to how this thing would work considering that Far Cry 5 is a first-person game.

 

Meanwhile, Ubisoft has also confirmed that a full campaign of the game would be available offline. For players, this detail is interesting as they want to play the game in co-op and check the game’s online objects as well.

Ubisoft said that the game is now available for download in various gaming consoles.
