On Far Cry 5 Microtransactions

GameSpot has new details on Far Cry 5, saying the upcoming shooter sequel will include microtransactions, saying these will include ways to speed progress for those who enjoy playing less of their new games. They also note that the game's single-player campaign will be playable offline, a sign of our modern times that this was a concern. Here's a bit:
As with many other games, including previous Ubisoft games, Far Cry 5 will offer microtransactions. Executive producer Dan Hay stressed that the game will be generous in what it offers, though if you want to speed up your progress by spending money, you'll have that option. "We've set the game up to be generous," Hay said. "We've set the game up so...nothing is locked [away]. You can go out and explore, and the game will reward you for your exploration."

Ubisoft PR followed up to offer a full statement on Far Cry 5's microtransactions, saying they will allow players to speed up their progress. It remains to be seen exactly how this will work, but looking at another recent Ubisoft game, Assassin's Creed Origins, may give us some clues. That game offers "Time Saver Packs" that include items or packs of in-game currency that you can then spend to speed up your progress. They are totally optional, and can be unlocked through normal gameplay. It is possible that Far Cry 5 will offer something similar.

The only Far Cry I played apart from the first game was Blood Dragon. Think Ill keep it that way.

If Blood Dragon didn't have the humour and the atmosphere, it would have been a mediocre game.

Blood dragon was very mediocre. I loved fc3 and fc4, but found the stripped down blood dragon tedious. If you're judging the series based on that, it's like judging new york city based on Staten Island.
