'Alien: Isolation' Developer Talks Crafting and Microtransactions
Jonathan Court, Senior Producer at 'Creative Assembly' has confirmed that crafting weapons and other things which they will talk about later in the year. He goes on to explain that this will be important in player choice. Maybe this means that the whole game won't be just running away from the nightmare inducer that we saw in this trailer earlier in the year.
When he was asked about micro-transactions, he gave the terse and beautiful response of 'No'. Micro-transactions are not alien (It had to be done...)to the new gen consoles nor do I think they are an inherently bad. I do, however, think that there is no way in hell they would ever work in a horror game. 'hey guys, listen... I know this boss is super scary and stuff, but we can just make him easy for 2 bucks...'.
