Battleborn website announces
plans to update Battleborn
with a patch that introduces a premium currency system and adds
microtransactions to the multiplayer shooter. Gearbox Software stresses that
these will be for cosmetic items only, though the also talk about expanding this
down the road, saying, "weâ€™re also exploring convenient ways players can add
bank spaces, loadouts, or boost their XP and credit earnings that do not affect
actual gameplay." Here's more on the plan:
We know what youâ€™re thinking.
Donâ€™t worry! When we expand the Battleborn Marketplace on June 16th, weâ€™ll be
offering premium taunts and skins that will not affect gameplay at all (warning:
may make your teammates and opponents incredibly jealous). This optional,
cosmetic content weâ€™ve created comes in addition to all the skins and taunts
weâ€™ve already put in the game. On top of that, the first five Battleborn DLC
Packs will have EVEN MORE skins and taunts that are only unlockable by playing
the Story Operations and will not be sold individually in the Marketplace.
