Dragon’s Dogma 2 Found Itself Trapped Under Review-Bombing Due To The Microtransactions Suite Revelation



On 22 March 2024, Capcom launched the Dragon’s Dogma 2 on PC via Steam, a highly anticipated sequel to the 2012-released Dragon’s Dogma. Fans were looking forward to getting their hands on the game, but the microtransactions suite might have killed their excitement. Prior to the launch, Capcom did not mention the microtransactions suite, which includes purchasing in-game items like Rift Crystals and more. While talking about the microtransactions in Dragon’s Dogma 2, one player wrote:


$70 game, I could support to ensure fair pay for a good game, however, when you also attach bloatware "buy more crystals" and Pay to win gifts to a singleplayer game... I cannot, in good faith, support that.

The game is also linked to their cloud servers. $1.99 to change what you look like. Let that set in. two dollars. to change your appearance. something that should be free and has zero impact on Capcom. Two dollars. Sure you may be able to get a lot of this in game, but it treats you like a child. Candy crush monetization. I won't spend my money to be treated like that, even if it's available in game, too.

Look how they massacred my boy turned him into a cash grab and murdered his soul should have let him rest but instead you dug him up and waved his corpse around with makeup on like the rats you are


Fans can be disappointed over the microtransactions and over the fact that they have to pay $1.99 every time they want to change their character.
