YOU DONE GOOD, BETHESDA.

DOOM Eternal Will Have No Microtransactions (Nice Job, Bethesda!)

Bethesda has seemingly made the right decision for players with DOOM Eternal, as it’s been confirmed the upcoming title will contain no microtransactions. Hooray!

The news comes from Facebook [via DualShockers], where a comment from DOOM Eternal’s creative director, Hugo Martin, has caught peoples’ attention. Responding to a fan query about microtransactions and stores in the game, Martin shared some very pleasing news.

“[There’s] No store. Nothing u [sic] can unlock in eternal with XP has anything to do with player abilities or content that would impact your game in anyway. The only thing u can unlock with XP is COSMETICS,” writes Martin.

“These cosmetics have no impact on how u play, they just look cool. Eternal is a $60 game, not a free to play game or a mobile game – we are giving u a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect.”

Breathe a sigh of relief, DOOM fans – it seems Bethesda is doing what’s right for us players.

He added: “Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff or u can completely ignore it and it will have no impact on your experience AT ALL and it’s all free.”

It’s great to hear that the AAA game is including everything you need without you having to fork out more money. It seems the publisher may really have learnt a lesson or two from the disaster that was 2018’s Fallout 76.

The news will hopefully give fans of The Elder Scrolls some relief too, as concerns over how Bethesda handled Fallout 76 was leading some gamers to worry about the fate of TES.
