Through the Market, players can purchase Loot Chests, War Chests, XP Boosts and Bundles (accessed only with an internet connection).

Loot Chests contain Gear (weapons and armor) of varying rarity. Equipping and upgrading these weapons and armor enhance Talion’s character abilities. Loot Chests can also contain XP Boosts that help level up Talion faster.

• War Chests provide Orc followers of varying rarity to help forge a strong army. They can also contain Training Orders to level up and customize Orc followers.
• XP Boosts are consumables that help level up Talion faster.
• Bundles package up Loot Chests, War Chests and Boosts together at a great value.



To purchase these items, players can spend Mirian or Gold throughout the game as one progresses. Mirian is a type of in-game currency that can be acquired by:



• Defeating Treasure Orcs
• Destroying Gear for Mirian
• Destroying Orc followers for Gear (which can be destroyed for Mirian)
• Finding Mirian stashes throughout the game



Gold is another form of in-game currency that can be used to get higher level Loot Chests, War Chests, Boosts and Bundles of the aforementioned content. Gold can be acquired by:



• Purchasing through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store or by adding to your Steam Wallet using real money.

• Awarded in small amounts at specific milestones.
• Awarded for participating in community challenges.



Please note: No content in the game is gated by Gold. All content can be acquired naturally through normal gameplay.

Pfft. More milking of players.
The microtransaction bubble is going to pop in a really ugly way, when lawmakers catch up to this kind of borderline gambling targeted at children.

It'll never happen. A perfect example of this was when the New York State Attorney General tried to end child porn on the internet by making it illegal to host certain (and the incorrect ones) internet newsgrounps in their state.

Another example of this was when Poland tried to regulate internet gambling back in 2009. You may have heard of that. They're the ones who said poker wasn't play on the internet.

China's trying to do in now with their recent law about having to state what percentages exist for those loot crates. Good luck on that with the public data matching the real data.

I dunno. Steam is on some really thin ice already and kids being involved is going to set off concerned parents eventually. It's only a matter of when.

It's been quite a while since the gaming industry, maybe even gaming culture at large, passed me by, going in a direction I entirely fail to understand. Clients, social features, achievements, youtuber celebrities, streaming/let's plays/twitch, microtransactions, day-one DLC etc. This doesn't even surprise or anger me anymore. I have no idea why would anyone ever spend money on that sort of thing. I understand as little about it as I would of some ancient text in aramaic, but I know people will buy this crap. People get the kind of gaming they helped create, no reason why they would sober up now and realise just how stupid all of this is.

We went through this with STO when one country (France?) suggested that they were going to ban anything remotely like gambling online. It's a quick easy fix to ban a country from playing a game.

Legislation has deeply affected music and gambling throughout the years, though? It's not about them disappearing as gambling in games won't disappear either, but the way it is done will change and this will be harmful to a number of companies relying on the current model.
I can at least understand (to some degree) microtransactions in a multiplayer only game (F2P or otherwise), but seeing stuff like this in a single player game kind of kills my interest in it (not that I was interested in this game to begin with, but still).
Whatever, it's probably going to be like Dead Space 3 that had microtransactions and no reason to ever use them.

Canada does a damn fine job of regulating its gambling. It can, and will be done, especially up here. If there is a will, there is a way.

Of course, Canada is also ran by a bunch of people who know a thing or two about technology and have played a game or two in their lives.

NO.... HELL NO! We are run by the ultra rich and get fucked in the ass at every opportunity imaginable. What we DON't have is massive anti-technology corporations that have taken control of politics.. yet. Im just surprised some of the provinces (OLG) haven't gone after these games yet.

You're Americans?
This problem can be solved very easily. Don't buy and the developpers will stop using this.
