Need for Speed Will Not Have Any Paid DLC or Microtransactions

Now if only it was not always online, it’d be perfect…

I’ve made my objections to the new, upcoming Need for Speed game, multiple times in the past. While the game itself looks great, and looks like a perfect marriage and culmination of the multiple disparate identities the series has often had, my issue with it is its always online requirement- I just can’t abide by it.

But it doesn’t seem like it was a requirement made out of any malice- in fact, judging by some of the other policies that were just announced for the game, it almost sounds like this will be one of the most consumer friendly games EA has released in a while. For instance, developer Ghost Games has confirmed that there will be no paid DLC for the game at all- instead, they are opting for the free updates route that gave DriveClub such staying power in spite of its disastrous launch. “We plan to release a series of free content updates for Need for Speed. We currently have no plans for any paid DLC,” they said, also adding, “There will be no micro transactions.”

Really, that sounds just about perfect to me. It makes me very happy. if only this game did not have that always online requirement, it would be the perfect Need for Speed game, at least judging by all the information we have so far.

Oh well. Need for Speed launches November 3 on Xbox One and PS4; a PC version is slated for a Spring 2016 launch.

      I don’t see anyone complaining about mad max being always online lol

    • Hermione Granger

      i havent read anywhere that there is a requirment to be always online to play the mad max game..

  • Hermione Granger

    another game not to buy then, thanks for the warning.

    • efnet

      Lol like you were going to buy it anyway …save the dramatics for someone else bro and besides it’s not like your lil chump change will make or break any game on the market lol

    • Hermione Granger

      yes i was actually gonna buy it at some point in time, when i get a ps4. but i havent done a research for this game before you mentioned this. now i have found out this game is unfinished garbage that needed a 400mb day one bug fix patch too.. also it used something called wbplay you must sign into to get online bonus stuff etc… warner bros basically try to do a ubisoft here(uplay)… i boycott ubisoft already, now i will boycott warner bros games too. not a big loss there is still plenty of other games to play out there.. and i have no plan to sign up to anything than psn. sign up to extra bs outside of psn to get a full game experience is a no no… i have my limits.

    We need to support always online for our protection.
    Lets stand together and support this, we wanted the Xbox One always online from day one.

      We is you i dont think most x1 fans would like to have always online. It’s not handy you might not have connection everywhere or anytime. It’s better how it is right now good choice Ms!

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      We have the xbox360 as a choice for those without the interweb

    • Zubairu

      That would not be wise to lock out alot of fans because of Internet. No I am happy Ms did not do this and made the x1 accessible for all fans online and offline. Always online is great in theorie yes but xbox live has his share of errors to and I am not comparing like a fanboy. It’s just better to be able to always play with or without Internet no matter for how long.
