Microtransactions are popular these days much to the bane of many gamers. It is a way for developers and publishers to make money beyond the sale of the game. Some games do it properly where gamers don’t feel the need to make any purchases, but can still progress through the game, but there are others where the more you spend, the easier it is to win at the game.
We have some good news for Fallout 76. It looks like for some of the in-game features, Bethesda won’t let you buy things with cash. That’s great news for those who hate microtransactions. One of the new features of the game is the return of the “Perk” system. These Perks will be acquired through “Perk Cards” and some have wondered if they can be bought using real-life money, but Bethesda has cleared things up.
According to Bethesda’s Pete Hines who replied to a fan, Perk Cards are what players get when they level up, where they will get these cards every other level from levels 1 through 10, and every 5 levels after that. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the game is doing away with microtransactions completely.
There may be microtransactions when it comes to cosmetic items which won’t affect your gameplay, but we don’t have pricing and other details just yet.
