Guardians of the Galaxy will not have DLC or microtransactions, according to developer Eidos Montreal.
Executive Narrative Director, Mary DeMarle, said:
There isn’t going to be any DLC for this game. There isn’t going to be any microtransactions.
That’s because, for us, it’s very important that on day one, when players get this game, they can have access to everything there is about this game and to experience it. Right off the bat, they can get all of the costumes or outfits that are available, they can find all the abilities as they progress through the game. It’s all there.
Eidos Montreal has confirmed that costumes offered as part of the game's Cosmic Deluxe Edition or through a pre-order bonus are still obtainable to everyone with the game.
An Eidos Montreal spokesperson said:
The pre-order bonuses are simply early unlocks. All players will also be able to obtain them in-game!
Guardians of the Galaxy heads to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Windows PC on 26 October 2021.
