Arkane 'Very Proud' Of Lack Of Microtransactions In Redfall

We're now finally just a few short weeks away from the launch of Redfall as part of Xbox Game Pass on May 2nd, 2023, and you'll be glad to know that everything you see in the base version of the game will be accessible on XGP.

In other words, there are no microtransactions integrated into the experience, and that means no in-game store either. Speaking to Wccftech recently, Redfall creative director Harvey Smith revealed the team was "very proud" of this fact:

"We try to be very clear that there are no microtransactions and there is no store in the game. We're very proud of that. If you find a costume in the game, then you can have it, as simple as that."

That's not to say that Redfall won't have DLC though. In fact, the Redfall Bite Back Edition on the Xbox Store is already advertising various benefits if you're willing to pay a little more at launch, including a Hero Pass with two future Heroes, along with various skins for characters and weapons.

And in the same interview, Smith confirmed there are lots of plans that can't be talked about right now:

"We have plans for additional guns, costumes, monsters, characters, and more that we can't talk about right now. But we have a strong year of updates, and it's all either in the current game or it will be DLC. We try to do it as fairly as possible for people."

You might want to spend some of those Microsoft Rewards points on Redfall if you end up really enjoying the game, but otherwise you can rest assured that you'll experience everything the base version has to offer on Xbox Game Pass.
