Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 Will Have No Microtransactions

For the Emperor!


Saber Interactive, the team behind the highly anticipated Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, has recently confirmed that "there aren't any microtransactions" in the game. Everything that players pay for is purely cosmetic.

The news comes from a community update in which the team reiterated what many of the trailers revealed, such as players will be able to play solo or with two friends in co-op, a quick rundown of the new PvE mode Operations that'll take place alongside the main campaign, and the newly announced PvP mode.

As the community update continued, the team went on to explain how paid DLC will be handled:

"Hence, we're happy to confirm that there aren't any microtransactions in Space Marine 2. No in-game cash shop. All gameplay content and features will be free to all players. Any paid DLCs will be cosmetic only."

Sylvain Le Roux, a senior brand manager at Focus Entertainment, also echoed this statement in an interview with PCGamesN. Le Roux went on to say that the team plans to implement season passes similar to other games, such as Fortnite, where everything players earn is cosmetics only. They then continued by saying, "All of the gameplay additions, whether it's new missions or new enemies, all of that will come for free to all players."

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 will launch on September 9 and be playable on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. For more Warhammer news, check out our story highlighting all the recently announced games at Warhammer Skull: 2024.
