Hugo Martin, Creative Director on Doom Eternal has confirmed the game will not have any micro-transactions.
Speaking to others via Facebook (in a screencap reportedly shared online according to Dual Shockers), Martin stated the XP earned in the game would be purely for cosmetic items such as skins, as well as emphasizing there would be no in-game store, and that the game would not be treated like a free to play or mobile game.
“No store. Nothing u can unlock in eternal with XP has anything to do with player abilities or content that would impact your game in anyway. The only thing u can unlock with XP is COSMETICS. These cosmetics have no impact on how u play, they just look cool. Eternal is a $60 game, not a free to play game or a mobile game – we are giving u a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect. Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff or u can completely ignore it and it will have no impact on your experience AT ALL and that it’s all free.”
