Ubisoft confirmed that micro transactions will stay in the modern Assassin’s Creed. We saw them in Black Flag, Unity, and now they’re coming to 18th century London in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.
“Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will include paid options to save time and accelerate progress,” Ubisoft dev Francois Pelland said in a community Q&A on IGN. “The pay model allows players who do not have time to fully explore our huge game world to still be able to eventually acquire the game’s most powerful gear as well as other items. Rest assured, all of AC Syndicate’s content is available without paying anything additional and the game has been balanced such that micro transactions are 100% optional.”
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is coming on October 23, 2015 across PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC version launching November 19.
