Obsidian’s new RPG won’t have microtransactions


Breathe a sigh of relief.

Following an initial tease of its new RPG on Take-Two’s new indie label, Private Division, developer Obsidian has declared the title will not have microtransactions.

“What we did want to talk about was a question a lot of you have been raising: ‘Will this upcoming game feature any lootboxes or other microtransactions?’

“The answer is simply: ‘no.’ No microtransactions, of any kind, in our game,” Obsidian wrote on its forums.

“We also wanted to say a word about our partnership with Private Division, our publisher on this title. Far from “pushing” us to put anything — microtransactions or otherwise — into our game, Private Division has been incredibly supportive of our vision, our creative freedom, and the process by which we work to make RPGs. They have been fantastic partners, and we are extremely excited to work with them through release, to put what we know is going to be an amazing game into as many hands as possible.”
