The business about the microtransactions in Dead Space 3 caused a tiny uproar among expectant fans, but it’s not really surprising considering that EA is the publishing power behind the title.
Basic upgrades are relatively inexpensive, costing a dollar, while more expansive and comprehensive DLC, including stronger weapons and upgrades to your resource gathering bots, will cost you a fiver.
In addition, the list confirms the obvious—the inclusion of an online pass for the cooperative mode for used purchasers.
- Bot Capacity Upgrade $4.99
- Bot Personality Pack $4.99
- First Contact Pack Free
- Marauder Pack $4.99
- Sharpshooter Pack $4.99
- Tundra Recon Pack $4.99
- Witness the Truth Pack $4.99
- Bot Accelerator $4.99
- Epic Weapon & Resource Pack $2.99
- Online Pass $9.99
- Ultra Weapon & Resource Pack $1.99
- Resource Pack $0.99
Dead Space 3, microtransactions included, will be available next week on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $59.99 on your platform of choice.
