Buy booster packs, get random sets of loot

Ryse: Son of Rome supports microtransactions in multiplayer, allowing players to pay a little extra for randomised Bronze, Silver and Gold armour sets in order to shortcut progression. These packs can also, however, be earned simply by grinding for in-game gold, and you'll pay a smaller fee to unlock one if you've churned out a bunch of gold already.... read more

Not too worrying really. Quite liked how it worked in ME3. Purchasing a big pack in ME3 saved you about an hour or so of gameplay, so not a huge advantage but a nice option.
Hopefully its a similar scale.

So it's works pretty much Mass Effect 3's multiplayer unlocks then? I've more of a problem with the random unlocks, than I have with the microtransactions.

The part where he said "The way that you get armour is very similar to how you get it in like Mass Effect or FIFA," makes me think he's not a fan of Fifa.
Being good at stuff is overrated. Probably.

I'd be much more interested in FIFA if it involved armour.

Not that sort of armour, the sort normally accompanied by swords and bloodshed.

I'm not a fan of micro-transactions; they just seems like a way for the publisher to get more money and for lazy people to cheat their way through the game.

However, I do love how it's Philip vs Microsoft. I don't fancy Philip's chances to be honest.

The game looks a little thin in the multiplayer, looks awfully similar to mass effect 3 (similar micro transactions as well) which got old very quickly. Hopefully the single player will be long and varied otherwise I won't be picking it up.

Obviously because spreading the holy word will make the game become a blessed piece of artwork too beautiful to compare
