Destiny to get 'emote' Microtransactions

Destiny is to get microtransactions, developer Bungie has announced.

Luckily the payments will only be for 18 new emotes, Bungie said. So it's not like it's anything you will desperately need.

"Like the trio of emotes offered via The Taken King Collector's Edition, these emotes are completely optional, and won't impact the action game in any way," the developer said.

A new in-game currency called "silver" will soon be introduced which you'll be able to buy for real-world cash through the PlayStation Store or the Xbox Games Store.

"If you're not interested in what Tess has to offer, you won't ever be forced to pluck an item off of her shelf.

"You'll still receive updates to the game, and you won't lose a Crucible encounter or fail to clear a Raid because you didn't have the right Eververse Trading Company emote equipped."

Any money made from the microtransactions will be used to help fund new missions and in-game events. "It has been, and continues to be, our goal to deliver updates to the game.

"If you're still skeptical, you can log in next week and take a look for yourself. We'll be dropping some free Silver into your account so you can purchase an emote or two and become legend through the power of dance."

What do you think of this news?
