EDIT: Hah, that's actually pretty funny. Though Ubisoft isn't exactly a saint as far as recurrent monetization goes, even if they're among the lesser of evils. Show your support on Patreon.com/YongYea or PayPal.me/YongYea! It's completely optional, but even $1 a month contribution will go a long way.

@Kys Scorch: Last I checked, there were lootbox exclusive cosmetics for Operators. And even if there isn't anymore, I still view lootboxs of any form as glorified gambling for a chance at an item. Just because it's optional doesn't excuse it's existence. That being said, my biggest problem is with Wildlands' far worse Lootbox system.
Kys Scorch (6 days ago)
For everyone saying you can't buy alpha packs with real money. You buy r6 credits to purchase renown. And you use that renown on alpha packs. I'm all for the siege packs there nothing wrong with them IMO especially since you only need to spend renown on packs for the rare camos eg black ice/ legendary camos.
Kys Scorch (6 days ago)
+Jack Neeson R6S is cosmetic only and its optional. You can also pay for pretty much any skin you want separately with renown. The only ones you get in alpha packs are the rare ones eg black ice and some more. But if you get a duplicate you get renown for it so I don't see anything wrong with it.
MajorBoothroyd007 (8 days ago)
The right way to implement that feature would be to have all the items in the loot boxes available to be unlocked through rank/level progression in the game. Like it used to be. What changed was gamers and journalists helped to normalize this practice and because it's turned a nice profit for big names in the industry, we've had a hard time going back. I for one refuse to succumb to the idea that this is where gaming will always be, and a lot of European nations seem to agree, as they are doing investigations into companies like EA for gambling charges.

I know i'm super late to the party but I do need to clear one thing up as I'm a pretty active member of the Rainbow Six community. The "loot boxes" that are in the game are not actually purchasable with real money, only in game currency. So it's i guess a microtransaction but you can't really pay for it with money.

Ubisoft shut the fuck up! As if they had room to speak. Maybe it's the next company we should destroy. Not to mention their ancient female warrior because they respect wahmen.
Bateluer (1 day ago)
That is hilarious. Have to point out though, the exp progression in Odyssey is fine. If you treat the game as the open world RPG its intended to be. Take your time, explore, do the Gold ! quests. You'll never be under leveled for the story quests, in fact, you'll likely become over leveled too quickly. If you buy the exp boost, it'd be like playing on easy mode.

You could have just showed us the clip and the stuff leading up to it and left it at that. I don't think Ubisoft is a saint either, but at least I haven't thought them bad enough to boycott. At least everything is still optional and not essential. I was expecting a fun and chill video from you for once, but nope. 100% Anti-Microtransaction agenda.

You all realize this wasn’t “Ubisoft” this was probably one writer or developer. Which look, it is hypocritical for this to come up in an Ubisoft game that is a testament to Microtransactions imo. But still, this one line was probably from a developer or writer who is against this stuff maybe similar to what we saw with the Kojima tribute in Metal Gear Survive.

I wholeheartedly disagree with everyone complaining about xp boosts being paid...thats never how RPG's worked, you don't get to take the easy way in RPG's you have to grind and level up if you want to venture further in the game. There are plenty of RPG's that have areas gated off due to level requirements...that simply means take in more of the world gain the "EXPERIENCE" and return when you are stronger. You guys are crying wolf at this point.

Ok im gonna tell you why you shouldnt buy the XP Boosters, and its not because its a waste of money, the fucking game scales to your level, so if you do a level 2 quest at level 5, everything is at level 5, when you get the XP Booster, you fucking fly through the level through normal "get all these cool side quests done" gameplay, but you get a reward at level 10, but your already level 11, so on and so forth, your gear actually becomes worse because you only get 1-2 item per level before leveling up again, so you have to fucking play smart and work WAY HARDER to survive everything and get though some stuff, lemme tell you though, i did like the fact i was able to be just high enough level to beat the minotaur, so it has some, SOME, perks, but seriously i fucking regret buying it to help since im working 24/7, cuz now i have to actually think during combat against insane enemies during conquest battles

Why not do at a toggle-able difficulty mode? Because they can't double dip on already-paying customers that way. Why not put the treasure maps in the game like all the previous games? Because they can't double dip on already-paying customers that way. Why not balance the game economy around a typical-length playthrough of the game? Because they can't double dip on already-paying customers that way.

Assassins Creed Odyssey is the most grindy game in the franchise. The levelling nip system is ridiculously slow, add to that irrelevant as everything and everyone levels up with you. Add to that weapons and armour need copious amounts of resources to level up, unreasonable amounts really considering you need so much to upgrade them even one level. (Specifically the legendary gear). The ship combat is slow with little reward, the game is no longer historically accurate (given that most of the mercenaries in my game, by that I mean all but two, were women. While there was women in positions like that they weren’t numerous), not to mention the fact that there is fire bombs in Ancient Greece among other things. While I love to see EA mocked, Ubisoft is no better when you realise so many of these issues are resolved by their “resource packs”, “Xp packs”, Money packs etc.

Microtransaction's bullshit but to be fair if you dont have 50 60 hours of time to play a game then an open world rpg isnt for you.
David Quezada (6 days ago)
Cometics are ok not loot boxes New armour and themes are cool But you need to be able to get points to buy stuff too And people who don't like rpg games don't play em That booster is stupid since it's pay walled

Ac odyssey is grindy? I am by default 10 levels higher than the story quests im doing because the sidequests are just as enjoyable
Simon Adamsen (6 days ago)
I Have to call it bs when it is called a pay wall feature.. you can get xp boosts with the ubisoft points that you earn by playing the game (so for free), and it cost only 10 of them... the game it self gives you 4 hours of exp boost within the first 3 hours of play..... and you earn more points while playing within the 4 hours you have already been provided by... and yes the boost givin is 25% and it counts your ingame hours so you can continue later dont have to be a 2 hours sitting per boost... my point is if you focus on the main campaign and do a little side questng or none at all as the ones who complain do, you get the points to have the exp boost on all the way through the entirety of the game for a total of 52 hours of exp boost.....

Battlefront 2's lootbox system was for sure Pay to Win. It's not arguable. However Ubisoft hasn't been the best as far as microtransactions go. Especially in this game. It's alright because it's not a multiplayer game, but some of the level gaps in the main story missions are so big that you have to grind. The grind can be long unless you buy an xp boost. The same goes with the materials. Once you reach leve 50, even upgrading a weapon or piece of armor from level 46 costs well over 10,000 gold, and that's not the end of it. The costs of wood, leather, and other materials exceeds 1,000. All of this is obtainable, but anyone who is max level and trying to upgrade their gear knows the struggle. Anyway, TL;DR: Even though Ubisoft's AC: Odyssey isn't multiplayer, the pay to win is still kinda strong.
Vitamin Ex (6 days ago)
That easter egg makes Ubisoft a hypocrite. Ubisoft is making fun of EA for getting busted for their shit while doing the same shit.
Algard (6 days ago)
if you can fully gain that exp by playing the game you just bought... then dont buy the boost... if you buy them you just paying extra for shortening your game which is retarded.

Tbh MXTs are needed as 60 dollars per full game is not enough. That said, there is a good way to do MXTs and a bad way. Sometimes it is totally dependent on the game type. Ex: Warframe being totally PvE doesn't matter that is is pay to win, if it had a heavy pvp focus then it would.

Ubisoft is even worse than EA. EA is obvious. Obisoft convinced you, the gamers, that it was your idea to give them more money.
Matti500 (6 days ago)
Why now in offline game there is resources that cost real money to skip some grind? Answer is greed!! before games had cheat codes like in GTA to skip grind, now those cheat codes are costing real money to use even when the game cost already a lot. Don't buy any microtransactions because that will support game publishers greed!

madcow BRO (6 days ago)
If your game has microtransactions OR lootboxes in it, then it's been optimized in someway to accommodate them. Two recent examples I can recall off the top of my head are Shadow of War and MGS:V Phantom Pain, which were filled with grind in the middle to late game. Same seems to go with Assassin's Creed Odyssey based on what I've heard from reviewers so far. So Ubisoft shouldn't be saying anything about "PrIdE AnD AcCoMpLIshmeNT when they can't even practice what they preach.

joszef babovec (6 days ago)
I can see that none of you play Ubisoft games. You can’t even pay for R6 loot boxes, Ubisoft doesn’t give you that option. Ghost Recon boxes aren’t pay to win and there are no duplicates in them. Farcry 5 micro transactions aren’t even pay to win because the weapons you can buy you can get in game by ACTUALLY PLAYING IT. It’s also very easy to get the weapons in farcry 5. Ubisoft is not as devious as you think, you just don’t play the games. NO weapons that you buy in GR boxes or in farcry you can use in pvp. Ubisoft has the full right to talking shit. It agitates me that this comment section is so ignorant. EDIT: AC Origins was pretty bad with boxes, but it wasn’t the worst. Btw all of the GR and R6 updates give FREE CONTENT. There are 2 FULL DLC CONTENT ADD ONS FOR GR. You don’t have to pay ANYTHING for R6 dlc. LITERALLY ALL OF THE SHIT YOU PAY FOR IS COSMETIC.

Andree Tungcab I didn’t really know that, thanks for saying something

Enigmatic Destroyer (6 days ago)
If you want to give the player choices. Then let the game be moddable or have a console. Withholding options that should be in the game and then selling if off so that people with more disposable income can buy it is not giving a choice.
Clementine Heart (6 days ago)
YongYea i love the content but in rainbow 6 siege you can only buy event lootboxes with real money where as default lootboxes can be earned through gameplay and in game currency that you don't buy (you are not allowed to spend money on the normal base alphapacks), siege i don't think personally its the lootboxes either that are predatory but more so the fact that you have to purchase the characters you play and while yes you can earn them through gameplay it takes hours even with a renown (the in game earned currency) booster. Which lets say you're a fan of a certain character that you don't have unlocked yet its a method of either pay $6.99 CAD per operator or put in hundreds of hours to get every op, personally i bought half and grinded out half but my friend has 200 hours in game almost and is still missing the ops. Just trying to raise your knowledge of how r6's pay to play feature is
PlanetRift (6 days ago)
Good find :) And isn't it ironic then that Odyssey is sold on EAs Origin store?
am i the only one that ask himself why there are microtransactions in a Singleplayer game at all? Back in the day you could just bring up the console and use cheat codes if you werent happy with the progression. But i guess that is not profitable for the companies...
