Ryse: Son of Rome to Feature Microtransactions


Microsoft has announced that the upcoming Xbox One exclusive, Ryse: Son of Rome, will feature microtransactions. 

The progression system in the game is built around armour, which you can unlock by using real world cash for Gold, Silver or Bronze packs.

The way that you get armour is very similar to how you get it in like Mass Effect or FIFA.

You only earn gold while playing multiplayer [and] you use that gold to buy booster packs. Those booster packs contain random sets of loot. Based on the different tiers of loot that you get – whether you buy Bronze, Silver or Gold Packs – guarantees whether you get rare or common items.

One of the things that we did a little different is that you can buy them with in-game currency and real world currency. The difference is that if you’re close we also have small microtransactions.
