Bethesda needs a win. Following Fallout 76’s release, the company’s reputation has plummeted. The games that followed weren’t any better. Rage 2 launched to mediocre reviews, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is one of the lowest-rated games in the series, and Fallout 1st added pay-to-win purchases. Many wondered if DOOM Eternal would become another negative in Bethesda’s long list of problems. But in a recent confirmation from the game’s creative director, DOOM Eternal will not include microtransactions.


From the Facebook post above you can see creative director Hugo Martin directly commenting on this. Saying there’s “no store” and everything must be earned through gameplay.

This is both alleviating and strange. Bethesda has shown with their current releases that they love microtransactions. Adding digital currencies to all their recent games and Fallout 76 being basically a premium free-to-play game at this point. But thankfully DOOM Eternal will remain loyal to what made the 2016 soft reboot such a hit.

DOOM Eternal launches on March 20 for PS4, PC, Stadia, and Xbox One. It’ll come to Nintendo Switch at a later date.
