Wolfenstein: Youngblood Microtransactions Confusion Settled
A recent discussion at E3 2019 resulted in some folks believing that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will have microtransactions that are not restricted to cosmetic items. However, this prompted Bethesda to clarify that this simply isn’t true and players will not be able to purchase weapon upgrades, and the whole process is confusing some people.
After going hands-on with the upcoming co-op shooter, Game Informer was under the impression that players would be able to buy cosmetics, weapons upgrades, and attachments with real world money. According to them, MachineGames noted how all of these could be purchased with in-game currency that is earned through playing, but using real money would just speed up the process.

To break it down, Wolfenstein: Youngblood will have two currencies: Gold Bars and Silver. Gold Bars can be purchased with real money and are used to buy cosmetics. Silver cannot be purchased with real money or Gold Bars and is only earned through playing the game. Silver is what is used to upgrade weapons and attachments.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is set to arrive on July 26th for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
