Assassin's Creed Unity

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity features micro-transactions and yes, you’ll be able to buy items and weapons with real money if you don’t want to play through the game. Though micro-transactions is a real dirty word in today’s business – just look at EA’s handling of the same in Dungeon Keeper – but senior producer Vincent Pontbriand promised to OXM that there wouldn’t be much more to the system than that.

“Companion apps, monetisation, other business models, digital only…We have to be reactive to these things, but not necessarily fundamentally change what we’re trying to do. It depends. If we think it fits the gameplay, or the brand itself, the core values, we’re willing to take those risks. If not, then not. We’re not going to make any compromises.”

So no, you probably won’t have to buy Assassin Gems in order to speed up the time between missions. Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be out in October – are you looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments.
