Dambuster Studios will support micro-transactions in Homefront: The Revolution but offsets the same by offering a year’s worth of free post-launch content for players.

Speaking to GameSpot, game designer Fasahat Salim said that there will be loot crates for players, which can also be obtained through regular play.

“It’s absolutely not a pay-to-win system because everything we’re providing in these resistance crates is available for free in the game through normal play. All we’re offering is, for those players that don’t necessarily have the time to invest in the game, to unlock those cool things. It’s basically just a time saver for them; a shortcut to unlocking these things. They pay a little bit of money but they’re not getting anything that’s exclusive to them.”

There won’t be any paid DLC as a result. “We’re not doing any sort of packs. We’re not making map packs or anything like that. As we’re done with a mission, we’re going to release it, the community can go ahead and play it, and we’re going to keep doing that for at least a year after release.”

Homefront: The Revolution is out on May 17th in North America and May 20th in Europe for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The beta will be out later this month exclusively for Xbox One.
