Earlier, CD Projekt RED confirmed that any Cyberpunk 2077 microtransactions will only feature in the title’s multiplayer modes.
Known for their single-player, narrative driven titles, CD Projekt RED is pushing the boat out with Cyberpunk 2077. Not only will it have an expansive single-player experience that seems like it will rival The Witcher III’s dominance over the genre, but it’s also going to have multiplayer!
There isn’t a whole lot of information on how the multiplayer mechanics will work in-game, but it is an exciting prospect nonetheless!
Cyberpunk 2077 Microtransactions Shouldn’t Target Players Aggressively
CD Projekt RED’s President, Adam Kicinski, has confirmed the microtransactions alongside a few comments about what fans can expect. He says that the game is a “great setting for selling things”, however, players should be feeling happy when spending money on in-game items.
As in-game microtransactions go, a lot of the time they are cosmetic. When they aren’t, they are often met with controversy and outrage from the relevant player bases. FIFA Ultimate Team has, somehow, largely avoided this for now. However, CD Projekt RED must be wary about how they handle their in-game microtransactions.
Many players are expecting the online mechanics to work in a similar way to the ever-lasting GTA Online. If this was the case, the in-game transactions would be largely currency based which… Let’s be honest, isn’t necessarily the worst thing.
What do you think? How would you want Cyberpunk 2077 micro-transactions to play out?
