Champions Online getting microtransactions?

Lesley Smith

Eurogamer are reporting that upcoming MMO Champions Online may be testing out in-game microtransactions. Last week during their press beta coverage, they noted a Champion Store. While not currently active, using it summons an error which mentions microtransactions.

They contacted Cryptic for a chat and got the following response from an unnamed spokesperson: "As you may have noticed in the recent play test for Champions Online, we are currently testing functionality for in-game transactions. Virtual asset sales are a necessary component of the greater Cryptic platform since we plan on working on a number of different titles using our technology platform. At present we do not have any finalised plans for how and if these will be implemented in future releases."
