Assassin’s Creed 3: Ubisoft issues microtransaction statement

Tuesday, 30th October 2012 10:05 GMT By Dave Cook

Assassin’s Creed 3 will support microtransactions, a move that had polarised gamers on either side of the nickel and dime fence. Ubisoft has released a statement, assuring gamers that the currency model will not block out content to those who don’t pay. Check it out below.

Eurogamer has the statement, which reads, “The Erudito Credits are a new way of unlocking content in Assassin’s Creed 3′s Multiplayer. People who have little time can use Erudito Credits as a shortcut to unlock game items from level 1 to 50 (excluding Prestige levels and relics rewards).”

“This is not mandatory, all items sold in Erudito Credits are also available in Abstergo Credits and can be unlocked through normal progression like previous years.”

So Erudito Credits are boosters essentially. Yesterday VG247 posted a full menu of the currency exchange rate. Check it out here:

    Don’t see the problem, it’s just another option for players…

    Heh, I noticed something very weird. Many people criticise F2P games for EXACTLY THE SAME model of microtransactions.

    Same people don’t see anything wrong with the fact that fully priced AAA game multiplayer mode is like F2P game.

    I’m glad I’m not into multi in AC series. I’d be pissed that some guy on level 1 could have some weapons and items I’d get through leveling for hours.

    I think the people who get angry over this, are just people with an axe to grind.

    It serves the people who have more money than time, just like those who have more time than money can get everything the regular way.

    Get over it.

    and the downfall of YET another AAA title have begun… instead of ending Assassin’s Creed on a high note and as one of the best games this gen. this is what we get a unfinished broken game release with day one patch, and now they are gonna nickel and dime you the microtransaction way to squeeze out the last of it. its a sad day for gaming folks… the gaming world is truly changing to the worst.

    @5 Then stop playing them?

    These are entirely optional. You can progress through the multiplayer just fine without them. Heck, you can’t even get the rare, prestige stuff with these. It’s an option for people with more money than time.

    your day will come when you have found this game you love, and you have used months to carefully build your character and get right stuff. then you meet this guys that have bought the game and everything 5min ago, he whack your arse good. your character and all the stuff you have used months on, are totally useless. we will see then if you have the same opinion about microtransaction.

    @7 You can prestige the multiplayer with a solid week of playing.

    Your point is redundant.

    we know where this is going, its not gonna be a optional buy, if you want the full game experience. ubisoft are just testing waters, and see how long they can stretch it… it is been done before don’t be gullible.

    @9 Companies have been ripping out content from their full games to pawn off as “DLC” for years.

    This is optional.
