After revealing the game’s date and price a few days ago, State of Decay developer Undead Labs has made another announcement fans should be excited to hear: The game will not have microtransactions.
The team mentioned the detail during a livestream discussing the first gameplay details shown off by IGN a few days ago. When asked about whether the game would have microtransactions, the developer said they have no plans to include them in the game. However, because the game is currently priced at $30, they did say they may have plans for paid expansions packs down the road.
While this isn’t the first time the company has made the statement (Undead Labs has previously stated they wouldn’t be doing microtransactions while responding to players on Reddit), the affirmation of it is good to see in light of the reduced price tag.
Hopefully Undead Labs can support the game and its community with the reduced price tag and DLC-over-microtransactions model. It’s definitely something I’d like more games to do.
