In a new interview released to GameSpot, Ubisoft detailed the way microtransactions are set to be working in the upcoming first-person action adventure title Far Cry 5 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It’ll be quite similar to the way they did in Assassin’s Creed Origins, as they’ll be time saver packs that will allow to speed up the game experience for those who don’t have much time to accelerate their progress in the adventure.
This content is optional and can be achieved by regularly playing the game. On top of that, there’ll also be the usual rush of skins and cosmetics, so that you can show how unique your character can be in a co-op or versus match.
Executive producer Dan Hay has detailed anyway that the game will be very generous, so you’ll never feel like there’ll be a need to spend money on several packs to get the most out of your experience.
“We’ve set the game up to be generous,” Hay said. “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.”
Ubisoft also confirmed that the main solo campaign will be playable without the requirement of a constant Internet connection. Although it may look some kind of a given, it actually isn’t: titles like Destiny 2, for example, need you to have a constantly active Internet connection even if you play on your own.
Far Cry 5 is releasing this March.
If you decide to buy Far Cry 5 with Season Pass then you will get free access to Far Cry 3, although it is not a remastered, still, a worth deal considering the fact that you get access to the full Far Cry 3 game for free of cost. Furthermore, the gameplay length of Far Cry 5 is said to be as long as the previous games i.e. 35 hours on an average. Lastly, the map of Far Cry 5 has been designed in such a way that it will offer a unique experience to every player.
