Micro Transaction Coming To Destiny This Week

Micro Transaction Coming To Destiny This Week

Bungie will introduce micro transactions to Destiny on October 13th, but the studio promises that it won't offer any pay-to-win options.

The first items to go on sale will be 18 new emotes available at vendor Tess Everis. Those items – and upcoming paid items – will be purchasable only using the silver in-game currency which will be introduced alongside the micro transactions update.

"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," said community manager David 'Deej' Dague.

"Our plan is to use these new items to bolster the service provided by our live team for another full year, as they grow and create more robust and engaging events that we'll announce later this year. It has been, and continues to be, our goal to deliver updates to the game. Going forward, our live team is also looking to grow beyond vital updates and improvements to focus on world events, experiences, and feature requests."

Bungie will also hand out free silver to mark the launch.
