It seems we just can’t get away from microtransactions in our games. Now, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is following in the footsteps of Origins and Odyssey by hopping on the microtransaction bandwagon. But how will these transactions work?
The In-Game Store
So far, we know the game will have an in-game store that sells an assortment of weapons, utilities, and cosmetic upgrades. Additionally, you’ll be able to buy special tattoo packs to give Eivor a fresh set of ink whenever you want.
The Bad News
While these microtransactions are in line with previous games, the base price for a few of the cosmetic packs seems to have increased. If you plan to really trick out your character, you may need to grab a few more bucks from your piggy bank than you did before.
One thing we don’t yet know is how “in your face” this store will be. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey did a good job of hiding this store so you didn’t really see it unless you wanted to buy something. While that is preferable, there is always a chance that the new store will be much more prominent.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be available November 10 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation4, Stadia, and PC. It will also be available on PlayStation5 when the console launches on November 12.
