As you all know, Resident Evil 2 is getting a remake and is going to release on January 25, 2019. Fans are going to experience nostalgia in an excellent remake with amazing graphics and improved gameplay. However, ESRB has recently included “In-game purchases” in their rating which arose a question whether the game will have microtransactions or not. For now, it has not been confirmed if the game will have microtransactions. But, a lot of sources state that there won’t be microtransactions, and it is pointed at something else.
ESRB also included a rating summary stating:
This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the roles of a policeman and/or a college student battling a zombie outbreak in the fictional Raccoon City. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments and use pistols, shotguns, tasers, explosives, and flamethrowers to kill mutant creatures and zombies. Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes also depict instances of intense violence and gore: a character’s throat ripped out by a mutant’s teeth; a man’s body cut in half, leaving entrails dangling from his torso; a man’s head crushed by a zombie’s hands. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses/zombies with exposed organs and viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.
The summary gives off a good impression that the game will be a lot of fun and it will consist of a lot of gore and vile language. Also, the game is rated “M” for mature, so it is not suitable for people under the age of 17. Some fans want microtransactions so they can customize their characters while others wish to play the game without any in-game purchases. However, if they include in-game purchases, they could make a lot of profit.
Nonetheless, fans are still excited for the game whether they include microtransactions or not because that won’t add or take anything from a good experience.
