PS4 racer Driveclub has microtransactions and here's how they work
You can use real money to unlock cars early, but not to purchase in-game "Fame" credits.
Upcoming PlayStation 4 racing game Driveclub will let you pay real money to unlock cars early, it has been revealed. It's par for the course for Sony racing games (and Microsoft's for that matter), as Gran Turismo 6 for PlayStation 3 also features microtransactions.
"In Driveclub you earn Fame, and as you earn Fame, you level up. Every time you level up, we give you another car. There's no double gating or anything along those lines, you're given the car straight away without having to do anything else," he added. "The only thing we do have is a couple of shortcuts."
"If you want to unlock a car immediately, you can pay to unlock that car straight away but it's not a consumable microtransaction.”
Of course, these microtransactions are entirely optional. For Gran Turismo 6, microtransactions are an alternate path for busy people, according to Sony. It sounds like their purpose is similar for Driveclub.
