In-game purchases have certainly been a hot topic for debate within the last year; whether it was in the form of loot boxes or microtransactions, the issue has been subject to more than its fair share of controversy. Thankfully, the director of Sony’s highly-anticipated first-party title God of War has confirmed that microtransactions will not be included in the title.
This news comes from Cory Barlog’s official Twitter account; initially, Barlog tweeted a photo of him by a fireside here he explained that he was in Berlin for some God of War related event. The confirmation came when a fan asked him whether or not gamers would have to use real money to purchase in-game items, to which, he responded with “No freakin way!!!!”
No freakin way!!!
