Tom Clancy’s The Division will still have microtransactions in it. However, the slightly good news is that they are totally optional.
As reported by IGN Netherlands, the Netherlands version of the PlayStation Store mentioned the game will have “optional in-game purchases”. This basically means the game still has microstransactions, but they shouldn’t interfere with the gameplay.
Ubisoft has added microtransactions before to many of its games. However more recently, they have all been optional. Several game developers add microtransactions if people are too lazy to unlock all of the content themselves. Other times they have been added for cosmetic things like emotes or new clothing.
It’s unknown at this stage what you are really paying for in Tom Clancy’s The Division. It probably won’t be a “pay-to-win” model as those are the worst type of microtransaction. “Pay-to-Win” is usually reserved for mobile video games or free to play ones online.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is an online third person shooter MMO. It is slated for release on March 8th, 2016 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms. The game had to be delayed several times in the past. Now it looks like Ubisoft is close to finally releasing The Division.
