Microtransactions Coming To Destiny

Bungie has announced that as part of their Year Two expansion, Destiny will soon feature real-money purchases.

Those familiar with the game may have previously met a character named Tess Everis, an Awoken merchant who run a storefront in The Tower. As part of the initial roll-out of the microtransaction system, she will be selling new emotes for you to add to your guardian. Everis will be selling 18 new emotes from October 13, but this will eventually expand to include other items.

The new system will introduce a new currency into Destiny’s ever expanding universe, Silver, which you can buy with real money from the Xbox and PlayStation stores.

Bungie hasn’t yet announced pricing details for pieces of Silver, or what is likely to come beyond emotes. For now, the developer is stressing that real money spent goes toward aesthetic pleasures, like emotes, and nothing that changes the game’s action.

“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,” Bungie writes. “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.”
