It happened with Star Wars: Battlefront, so would anyone expect otherwise from DICE and EA when Electronic Arts' fourth-quarter earnings report brought up the prospects of bringing micro and macro transactions to Battlefield 1?"

If you thought Overwatch, Blizzard's insanely popular class-based first person shooter, would escape the microtransaction bug that's infected so many multiplayer games, you'd sadly be wrong.Fortunately, the microtransactions will be limited to cosmetic items only, and will use a system somewhat similar to Team Fortress 2's supply crates.
Developers and publishers are seemingly fixed in the act of fleecing us video gamers through unfinished games, shifty pre-ordering schemes, excessive microtransactions, and expensive DLCs." That was an advertising line for "The Horse Armor Pack" released in 2006 for The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion.
If you play a lot of Overwatch, as more than seven million people do, chances are you've opened your share of loot boxes.Due to random chance, a loot box can have awesome rare skins and animations, or just some voice lines and sprays.
E3 is right around the corner, and Battlefield 1 is set to reveal new, highly anticipated information.The game will be going back to World War 1 and the early 1900’s, which is a breath of fresh air since there has been an abundance of current and futuristic era shooters.
