Assassin’s Creed Unity Will Not Be Affected By Microtransactions, Says Senior Producer

By   /   Aug 14, 2014

Assassin’s Creed Unity is yet another title of the franchise which allows players to boost up their character in order to speed up progression by spending real life money.

Exactly how this system works in Unity is still unclear (in Black Flag you could purchase shortcut packs to beef up your ship or get materials like metal and wood for upgrades).
Talking about how this specific feature affects the franchise, allowing players to ‘hack’ the progression system, senior producer Vince Pontbriand said:

“It depends. If we think it fits the gameplay, or the brand itself, the core values, we’re willing to take those risks. If not, then not. We’re not going to make any compromises.”

During GamesCom 2014, Vince assured fans that as far as the micro transactions go, this speeding up unlock system would be the only one being implemented in the game. According to him, the company always has to stay reactive to such things however, their main focus is to not change the core gameplay.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is set during the French Revolution and puts players in the shoes of a nobleman, Arno Dorian. The game is scheduled to be released on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
