Bungie Announces Microtransactions for Destiny

Posted October 6, 2015 by Kat in News

Bungie has officially announced a new edition to Destiny as the game heads into its second year: microtransactions. Specifically, the first of the lot of what will be available will come in the form of new emotes for the title.

Access to the purchases will come through the character of Tess Everis, an Awaken Merchant who operates a storefront in The Tower for the Eververse Trading Company. The first of these will launch Oct 13 and will reportedly include 18 new emotes.

Purchase of these emotes comes through the game’s newest currency – Silver. Acquisition of Silver is, of course, made from purchase with real-world dollars and cents via the Xbox One and PlayStation online stores.

No specific pricing details have been given, but likely we’ll learn more as we get closer to the official launch of this aspect of the game.

For those concerned that the introduction of microtransactions will affect the action of the game, Bungie has released assurances that those available will be purely aesthetic.

“If you’re not interested in what Tess has to offer, you won’t ever be forced to pluck an item off of her shelf,” Bungie writes. “You’ll still receive updates to the game, and you won’t lose a Crucible encounter or fail to clear a Raid because you didn’t have the right Eververse Trading Company emote equipped.”
