Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered News and Updates: Future Microstansactions and DLC Leaked
With a game as popular as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, gamers will do everything in their ability to uncover its secrets. Data mining is nothing new for modern gamers as people love to nitpick through game files to find something undiscovered that might hint to something for the future of the game. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered isn't free from that even if the game is a remake of a nine-year-old game. According to a report, players have discovered that there are several guns within the game files, a lot of which comes from Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Reddit users Semyel and Tails dug through the game's files and uncovers weapons that aren't part of the game as of now. These include fully completed models of a shovel melee weapon, Black Ops' Galil, and Modern Warfare 2's Striker. Although this may look like game assets that were lazily left behind, other discoveries made by the Reddit users point out to the game having microtransactions. In their data mining search, Semyel and Tails also found data that suggests a weapons dealer will be added to the game. It is possible that this weapons dealer will be selling the uncovered weapons previously mentioned. Gamer woudn't be surprised if these findings are indeed true and the game will feature microtransanctions as the franchise is no stranger to these. What's surprising is that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster is just a remake of an old game. Instead of the gamers buying a simple remaster, the publisher thought of making more money out of an already finished product nine years ago and on top of its selling price.
Microtransactions have always been a hot topic for gamers debating whether it was good or bad for games. They have said that because of these microtransactions and/or downloadable content which will be available after the release of the game, game publishers are more inclined to sell an unfinished game for a full price. They will then charge players for extra content that they feel should be in the game when it was first released. So instead of paying $60 for what is expected to be a complete game, players now have to pay more than the original selling to get the full experience. However, not all publishers release their games in this manner. By making microtransactions and downloadable content add to what is already a complete game, publishers are respecting the players' role as buyers and the games integrity. An example of which is CD Projekt Red which recently released an already complete game in The Witcher 3 to universal acclaim in its initial release. It then provided a steady stream of additional content free of charge and released a substantial downloadable content, which is as big as some games, at a fraction of a cost. Nonetheless, only the gamers can stop this abuse by not giving in to these publishers' demands.
