LEGO 2K Drive got officially revealed earlier this week and it seems some new details have now surfaced about the game's transactions.
While there'll be in-game currency known as "Brickbux" - which players can use to purchase optional items including new vehicles, minifigures and more at a store called "Unkie's Emporium", there'll also be an option to spend "real money" to obtain select items.
Here's what a 2K rep had to say to Wccftech, including a comment about "safety and responsibility" in regard to parents making the right decisions for their kids:
“Lego 2K Drive features an in-game store, Unkie’s Emporium, where players can acquire optional items including new vehicles, minifigures and more. There are two types of items in the store, ones that can be purchased using Brickbux earned through playing, or ones that can be purchased using coins obtained through a real currency purchase.
Safety and responsibility was a top priority for us when creating Lego 2K Drive. To ensure parents can make the right decisions for their kids, to make purchases a player must create a 2K Account. If the player is underage, their account must be verified by an adult, who then has the ability to block in-game money purchases.”
A press release has also confirmed LEGO 2K Drive will operate as a "live service" - including a "Drive Pass" and seasonal updates. Details about this other content have not been revealed just yet.
