Dragon's Dogma 2 has microtransactions for fast travel, resurrection and character editor

Dragon's Dogma 2 just launched today and is receiving a lot of criticism and backlash from fans due to microtransactions. Microtransactions are generally frowned upon by the gaming community unless reasonably implemented. As for Capcom, they deliberately listed a bunch of supposed “pay-to-win” items on the store page at the exact time of release, catching many players off guard.

Capcom's microtransactions for the sequel are basically a deconstructed “booster” for players. You can buy Camping Gear, Rift Incense, gifts, character editor, resurrection, fast travel points and Rift crystals to give you an edge over other non-paying players. Capcom did to repeat that all of these items can be obtained in-game, meaning players can farm for them once they progress through Dragon's Dogma 2.

Buying all of these microtransactions will cost $41.79 USD, or more than half the cost of the base game. This was met with an outcry from players who expressed their anger by leaving a ton of Not Recommended Reviews on Dragon's Dogma 2 Steam Page. A Steam user specifically talked about having to pay $1.99 USD to edit your character after already spending around $70 USD for the base game, which blew their minds. Some players have even pointed out Capcom's practices and labeled them as Anti-Consumer.

Dragon's Dogma 2's microtransactions are only half the problem

Players are also complaining about poor performance, crashes, and no option to delete a save file in Dragon's Dogma 2. Some dedicated fans have even stated how they butchered Dragon's Dogma because it was a far cry from their experience with the prequel.

Despite all the backlash that Dragon's Dogma 2 is receiving, Capcom is looking into possible fixes for the game's poor performance and crashes and will be updating the game in the near future. In the meantime, you can mitigate the game's poor performance by tweaking some in-game settings, but don't expect it to be a miraculous jump from your base FPS.
