Ubisoft shooter extended to new micro-transactions

Ubisoft has special plans for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon breakpoint. From 9 December players should have the opportunity to receive special cosmetic items as NFTs to purchase. The new form of microtransactions is the first step to integrate some internet hype about cryptocurrencies in video games of a large publisher.

But what are NFTs anyway? NFT stands for Non-Fungible tokens that serve as a kind of ownership certificates for digital content and can be purchased with cryptocurrency and sold again.

opinion: NFTs are the worse Loot boxen

Large publishers such as Ubisoft and EA flirt with NFTs in video games. Surprisingly, this is not actually. Spend Loot boxen prove, after all, that there is a demand for it, even true for cosmetic items Money. However, NFTs go beyond a simple skin for a weapon. Actually completely worthless digital code is not now adorn only your virtual characters, but also serve as a store of value and resold. What else to do all this with a game?

The utter absurdity of the whole system is thus significantly later than that NFTs for Ghost Recon breakpoint to remain the same even if Ubisoft quartz or the game will be even disabled. So you were still the proud owner of a weapon skins for a game that it no longer exists.

Ubisoft expands Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon breakpoint to NFTs. Soon the shooter that cosmetic items that have a unique serial number has and can be resold. Ubisoft this step on the grounds that the players more control should be given.
