Last week Monolith released an official statement announcing that as of 17th July, Shadow of War will no longer contain microtransactions. Buying Gold with real money will be gone for good on 8th May, and a couple of months later the market which erstwhile sold item chests, XP boosts and orcs for the Nemesis system will be dismantled completely. Apparently buying those orcs, rather than earning them in-game, "risked undermining the heart of our game," said Monolith, six months down the road from implementing that marketplace. Six months ago the press was saturated with headlines about a new wave of intrusive microtransactions. Communities expressed their outrage, share prices dropped, oceans turned blood red. Now it's increasingly populated by news of their subsequent removal. If it wasn't for fear of having one's naivety etched indelibly onto internet record, the great microtransaction withdrawal movement of 2017/18 might be enough for one to proclaim that the practice was dead.

With the highly positive reception that Capcom’s latest game has had from both gamers and reviewers alike, it should come as no surprise that Monster Hunter World’s sales have been good. However, new figures released for the month of January show that the game’s success has been even greater than anticipated. January 2018 was an excellent month in general for the video game industry, not just for Monster Hunter World. Figures released by the NPD Group, an industry-tracking firm, show that the video game industry saw a 59% rise in year-over-year sales for January this year, generating slightly over $1 billion. While sales were up across the industry, it was Monster Hunter World that took the coveted spot as best-selling video game of the month. Monster Hunter World didn’t even release until the January 26, giving the title just six days with which to compete with the other games that sold well during the month. The … [Read more...] about Monster Hunter World Tops Game Sales for January 2018
For many Rockstar Games fans, a delay for Red Dead Redemption 2 — from fall 2017 to spring 2018 — was expected. The publisher’s known to have a thing for announcing release dates, only to change them again and again. It’s something Rockstar’s been doing for most of its life, marking nearly 20 years of delays. The Grand Theft Auto series is full of ‘em The first fully 3D entry in the series, Grand Theft Auto 3 was one of 2001’s biggest hits. But following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, Rockstar pushed its release back by three weeks. “Our decision is based on 2 factors,” said co-founder Terry Donovan in an interview with IGN. “Firstly it has been a little difficult to get work done in downtown Manhattan in the last week since basic communications infrastructure has been intermittent at best, and secondly we felt that a full content review of all our titles and the marketing materials we use to represent them was absolutely … [Read more...] about Rockstar Games’ 15-plus years of delays, revisited
Last week, a report claimed that the next Dragon Age game was rebooted in 2017 in an effort to add more "live elements." Given EA's belief in and commitment to microtransactions, some took this to mean that the new Dragon Age title would feature microtransactions. This might end up being the case, but now producer Casey Hudson has weighed in to quell concerns.Posting on Twitter, Hudson said players will be "relieved" when EA shows off the next Dragon Age, adding that the game is "story and character focused." While he said it is "too early" to talk specifics, he did apparently confirm that there will be "live" elements. Hudson said this "just means designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story."Reading lots of feedback regarding Dragon Age, and I think you’ll be relieved to see what the team is working on.
