Straying away from all of the 'money hungry' memes and the direction of Bungie's new funding goals, a DICE senior developer on the Star Wars Battlefront project has pledged that there will be no microtransactions in his game.




In an interview with GameSpot, Niklas Fegraus stated that paying real money for Star Wars goodies is "not part of the core design," adding that the only way to earn credits is through gameplay alone.


Adding that this ingame currency is earned through performance, Fegraus expanded on some usefulness when you're rolling around in virtual coins; "The coolest things you can get is star cards to best suit your play style. If you really like to snipe, for example, you should totally go for the blaster cannon. Or if you're looking for something cool in terms of expressing yourself, then I would say if you gather a lot of credits, you can buy some expensive in-game items, such as being able to play as an alien race. You can be a Rodian while everyone else is human."
