World of Warcraft microtransactions confirmed

Blizzard confirms in-game WoW item purchases

World of Warcraft news

Blizzard has confirmed that World of Warcraft will be getting microtransactions, as previously experimented with by the company through the Enduring Elixir of Wisdom on the game’s Public Test Realm (PTR).

The new version 5.4 update adds a new siege, flexible raid difficulty, a redesigned arena system and some other new additions, but also includes an in-game store which allows players to grab some items on the fly.

The new update is still in testing phase, therefore the items on selection may be limited for the meantime.

“For players who are already interested in the in-game items we offer, such as Pet Store pets and mounts, the benefits of an in-game store are pretty clear,” said Blizzard.

“We think everyone would appreciate the convenience of being able to make such purchases without having to leave the game, and ultimately that’s our long-term goal for the system, though there’s quite a bit of work involved in retrofitting those existing items into the new system.”
