Dragon’s Dogma 2 to feature potential PS5 microtransactions at launch, sparking backlash. Publisher faces criticism for charging extra for in-game resources.

There is a wide range of microtransactions available in the game, priced between £0.79/$0.99 and £2.49/$2.99. These optional purchases include Rift Crystals, which are used to hire Pawns and buy items, and Portcrystals, which help create fast travel points. While these resources can be obtained in-game, they are sometimes rare and limited, raising concerns about the game’s design. It seems easier to buy these resources with a credit card rather than exploring the game world.

Capcom has implemented similar microtransactions in the past, and it seems like they will continue to do so in the future. While gaming costs are rising, players do not need to purchase these items to enjoy the game. However, it can be frustrating to have limited in-game resources sold as microtransactions.

It appears that the publisher may have overstepped with these microtransactions, as backlash is already building. The negative reviews are expected to have a significant impact on the game’s reception.
