Dead Space Remake Won't Have Microtransactions

Reversing course from the controversial inclusion of microtransactions in Dead Space 3, the developers of the upcoming Dead Space remake have no intention of ever adding microtransactions to the game.Speaking to IGN ahead of the Dead Space trailer reveal, senior producer Phil Ducharme said the EA Motive team developing the remake was learning from some of the franchise’s past missteps and is ensuring the remake won’t look for ways to goose extra money out of players.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/07/22/dead-space-remake-reveal-trailer”]Speaking to how the remake is learning from what came after the original Dead Space and finding natural ways to integrate some ideas into the original, Ducharme made it clear they would not be adding microtransactions.“We're looking at what can be taken and reinjected into the first game from a future standpoint.We're also learning from mistakes such as microtransactions, which we will not have, for instance, in our game,” Ducharme told IGN, confirming that they are developing it to “never” have microtransactions added to the experience.This move follows Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which made clear before its launch that the single-player experience would not have any microtransactions.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/01/15/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-performance-review-ps5-vs-xbox-series-xs”]The developers are, of course, looking for ways the future of the Dead Space franchise after the first game’s release can inspire this remake.
