If you're not aware of the current issues taken with this title I will outline them as follows:
1) A single player full priced game with micro transactions. To gain a competitive edge on the computer AI (read: grind skipping), you can buy War chests.
2) The DLC coming has been already outlined with trailers and screens well before the games release, indicating the material has been skimmed to sell back to us.
3) The latest announcement is that a tribute package DLC to the late exec producer Michael Forgey, who died last year of cancer, will be sold. An in game character resembling the man with 1/3rd of the proceeds going to his family. However, fine print reads- those donations will only occur for select states in the US, no other country outside of the US or in non-participating states will be donating to the family.
I'm an advocate against many modern practices used in the gaming industry. Buying a game has become akin to buying a sports car, many options are available to those willing to pay more, and constant monetary payments are often required to enjoy the game late into its shelf life.
While my person feelings around these practices are strong I hope you agree that WB are taking things too far with their greed.
Please vote with your wallets. If we just accept this, the next game, and the next, will ask is to pay more and more often for content we have grown acustom to in titles of the past.
Please read up on these issues yourself, many outlets including NZGamer have publicised this. I apologise for the wall of text. This is something I think as a life long gamer, is going to turn a discouraging modern trend in games into industry standard. Thanks.
