"Ghost Recon Breakpoint" Update - Ubisoft Removed Some Microtransactions From

Ahead of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’s launch on October 4, Ubisoft has addressed its philosophy towards microtransactions and why it chose to remove some Time-Savers items that weren’t supposed to be available quite yet.

As reported by USGamer.net, Ubisoft took to its forums to discuss in-game purchasable content and how it “aimed at offering a fair and rewarding experience to our players however they want to experience our game, in solo, co-op, PvE or PvP.”

Ubisoft began by stating “two key factors stood out as extraordinarily vital for the team,” which are that Breakpoint would not “include any pay-to-win elements,” and that “players not choosing to engage with in-game purchases don’t see their expertise affected.”
