Assassin’s Creed 3 Includes Microtransactions
Ubisoft has jumped on the microtransaction train, as evidenced by updates in the XBLA and PSN stores that revealed “Erudito Credit” packs for sale for Assassin’s Creed 3.
What is an Erudito Credit? According to the description, the credits allow players to “acquire some game items, disregarding your current level.”
The following Erudito packs are available:
- 20 Erudito Pack = 80 MSP ($1 USD)
- 50 Erudito Pack = 160 MSP ($2 USD)
- 155 Erudito Pack = 400 MSP ($5 USD)
- 380 Erudito Pack = 800 MSP ($10 USD)
- 925 Erudito Pack = 1600 MSP ($20 USD)
At the beginning of the month, we reported that Ubisoft was boarding the F2P train, with Ubisoft’s chief financial officer Alain Martinez saying:
“There will be free-to-play on consoles. But in the future, with games like Watch Dogs, we could see more opportunity for $60 games to learn from the free-to-play model. The next generation will offer more and more item-based content. This will benefit our games’ profitability.”
The future is now.
