Assassin's Creed: Unity will include microtransactions

Ubisoft is apparently bringing microtransactions back for Assassin's Creed: Unity, as players will be able to "fast track" certain items and gear with cash.

Ubisoft confirmed the business model at Gamescom this week, but senior producer Vincent Pontbriand assured OXM US that the items won't be necessary to get the full experience out of Unity.

"Companion apps, monetisation, other business models, digital only... We have to be reactive to these things, but not necessarily fundamentally change what we're trying to do," said Pontbriand. "It depends. If we think it fits the gameplay, or the brand itself, the core values, we're willing to take those risks. If not, then not. We're not going to make any compromises."

Assassin's Creed: Unity arrives October 28th for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
