For Honor Will Cost You over $700 in Microtransactions

Not that For Honor players are being forced by gunpoint to spend their money, but I guess this is worth bashing Ubisoft for since it would take a ridiculously long amount of time to unlock this content through regular gameplay. There’s also the old argument that this content should have been in the base game anyway. For Honor players who intend to get the full experience should expect to either cough up $700, or spend 2.5 years playing to unlock all of the game’s content.

آ…it costs around 91,500 steel (the in-game currency) to unlock each character and all of their customisations in the base game. For all 12, we’re looking at 1,098,000 steel, which equates to approximately 7.32 of the $100 steel packs. "So Ubisoft has valued their in-game unlocks within the base game at a $732 over-charge of the original $60-100 spent on the game." If you’re thinking about not dropping any money on the steel packs because you’re happy to earn them through playing the game: "Casual players who play 1-2 hours 5-7 days a week will never reach this goal. Completing Orders/half-Contracts will get you roughly 1000 Steel, another roughly 200 for the matches you played. So 1200 a day is a good estimated gain for casual players. That’s 915 days. Roughly 2.51 years."
