Doom Eternal Creative Director Hugo Martin has shared a comment seemingly confirming that there will be no microtransactions in the game.
The news comes from a post Martin made on Facebook, apparently in response to a fan asking if Doom Eternal has an in-game store. According to the post, Doom Eternal will not have an in-game store, and will be a “complete experience”, although it will contain cosmetics that can be earned via XP.
No store. Nothing you can unlock in Eternal with XP has anything to do with player abilities or content that would impact your game in any way. The only thing you can unlock with XP is cosmetics. These cosmetics have no impact on how you play, they just look cool.
Eternal is a $60 game, not a free-to-play game or a mobile game. We are giving you a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect. Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff, or you can completely ignore it and it will have no impact on your experience at all and it’s all free.
Although the comment does not explicitly say “no microtransactions”, it certainly sounds like the developers are firmly against any sort of “pay-to-win” model at the very least. We will be sure to share further updates on the situation should they arise.
