Dead Space 3 Features Microtransactions For Weapons Crafting

Dead Space 3 Preview: Frozen Space-Terror Is Better With Friends

As review playthroughs begin for Visceral Games' Dead Space 3, word has emerged that the game continues publisher Electronic Arts' trend of building microtransaction opportunities into its releases. Dead Space 3 does so within the game's new weapon crafting system, with players able to enhance their designs either by seeking out scrap materials or by spending actual dollars, according to Eurogamer.

As associate producer Yara Khoury told the site, "You can buy resources with real money, but scavenger bots can also give you the currency that you can use on the marketplace. So you don't have to spend [real world] dollars." There's no word on how much this content will cost, though the news has left some -- such as Destructoid's Jim Sterling -- with a sour taste. Will you pony up real money on top of your $60 purchase for an easier time in the game?
