EA reveals Dead Space 3's microtransactions prices.
EA has previously announced that their upcoming Dead Space 3 will indeed include microtransactions, in which players will have the option to “enhance” their game experience with the purchase of new suits, weapons, and a variety of other packs. For those interested in the cost of these additions, the PlayStation Store recently listed all available DLC along with their price tag.
The extra content ranges from weapon to skin packs, but the most noticeable of the bunch is the $9.99 online pass which players will need if they want to access Dead Space 3’s highly anticipated online co-op mode. Here’s the rest of the content…
- Bot Capacity Upgrade $4.99
- Bot Personality Pack $4.99
- First Contact Pack Free
- Marauder Pack $4.99
- Sharpshooter Pack $4.99
- Tundra Recon Pack $4.99
- Witness the Truth Pack $4.99
- Bot Accelerator $4.99
- Epic Weapon & Resource Pack $2.99
- Online Pass $9.99
- Ultra Weapon & Resource Pack $1.99
- Resource Pack $0.99
Now I know it’s easy to hate on EA for this, but keep in mind that it’s ultimately the player’s decision, as EA has included the micotransaction option in many of their previous games. In fact, g1 logicallydashing offers up an interesting read on the topic and it’s place in retail games that you can read right here.
So g1s, what do you think? Will Dead Space 3's extra content be getting your cash? Or will you spend more time fighting off EA’s money grabbing hands then Necromorphs? Let me know in the comment section below!
