In case you were ever worried DOOM Eternal might employ such hellish practices as microtransactions, fear not. The upcoming FPS will have some unlockable items, but you won't be able to pay for them; you have to earn them.
This information comes straight from the title's creative director, Hugo Martin. Responding to a fan question on Facebook, Martin assures them that DOOM Eternal won't have an in-game digital store or microtransactions of any kind. Furthermore, the unlockable items are cosmetic, and have no gameplay impact at all.
"Eternal is a $60 game, not a free-to-play game or a mobile game—we are giving you a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect," Martin says. "Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff, or you can completely ignore it."
To be honest, there was never really any danger of this happening, but it's nice to get confirmation either way. Are you relieved DOOM Eternal will be free of microtransactions? Rip and tear in the comments below.
