DOOM Eternal director says the game will not include microtransactions, cosmetics are unlocked through XP

Your wallet is not DOOMed

DOOM Eternal is one of the few AAA games coming out this year that isn't going to include microtransactions. Director Hugo Martin confirmed this in a Facebook post, stating that players won't even have an in-game store to deal with. You pay your $60 and get the full game. Check out Martin's full statement on the matter below.

No store. Nothing you can unlock in Eternal with XP has anything to do with player abilities or content that would impact your game in any way. The only thing you can unlock with XP is cosmetics. These cosmetics have no impact on how you play, they just look cool.

Eternal is a $60 game, not a free-to-play game or a mobile game. We are giving you a complete experience with no store just like you'd expect. Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff, or you can completely ignore it and it will have no impact on your experience at all and it's all free.

Hmmm. I wonder whom they are calling out.
(One developer who does not have a name, only initials).

Sad that we have to have news articles stating what should be commonplace, but nonetheless thank you DOOM devs for making this a complete experience for the initial $60 investment. Wish other developers would recognize follow this approach.

Coming from bethesda who said the exact same thing about fallout 76. Theyre full of shit.

Xp used to be used for helpful things, now it's just regulated to simple cosmetic crap.

Too bad Betashed will be too cheap to release this physically, properly...
