Destiny Taken King Features: Microtransaction Items Will Be Made Available In Game, Add On Raises Eyebrows!

By on

The news of the game getting microtransactions is raising the fans? eyebrows.

According to Kotaku, Bungie will be adding a microtransaction feature to the game, but before you go raging out about the news, the microtransaction will only feature cosmetic items. This means only emotes and sparrow skins will be sold with real money and the planned microtransaction will kick off this month.

According to Bungie?s official post on their community site, they will be bringing the Tess Everis NPC back to the game on their update, here is their statement:

?This coming Tuesday, October 13th, Tess Everis will return to The Tower with a new look, a new storefront, and some new items to sell, courtesy of Eververse Trading Company. Initially, Tess will offer eighteen brand new emotes. Like the trio of emotes offered via The Taken King Collector?s Edition, these emotes are completely optional, and won?t impact the action game in any way.

To acquire these items, you?ll first need to pick up some ?Silver,? a new in-game currency that will be available for purchase through the store associated with your console. Images and descriptions for each available emote, along with pricing information for Silver will be made available Tuesday, October 13th, alongside the launch of the in-game storefront right here on as soon as the content is live.

If you?re not interested in what Tess has to offer, you won?t ever be forced to pluck an item off of her shelf. You?ll still receive updates to the game, and you won?t lose a Crucible encounter or fail to clear a Raid because you didn?t have the right Eververse Trading Company emote equipped.?

Also aside from the news on the microtransaction, Destiny will be getting free DLCs for new quests and events, this will continue until fall of 2016 where another major expansion will be announced. But it is still unsure if it will be another expansion or a sequel to Destiny, we will find out soon.

Destiny has launched its latest expansion called The Taken King and it is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
