Two more paid cosmetic packs have been added to Doom Eternal’s shop.
Despite assurances that it would be microtransaction-free, two more paid cosmetic packs were added to the shop for DOOM Eternal across platforms. The packs contain skins that were previously offered to players for free. The first paid cosmetic pack, the Rip And Tear Pack, was released almost two months after the game was originally released and contains exclusive content for pre-orderers.
The Series One Cosmetic Pack contains items that were available to players during the first season of DOOM Eternal. Players can acquire various nameplates, icons, weapon skins, and character skins by purchasing the pack.
The second pack, the Doomicorn Master Collection Cosmetic Pack, dresses the huntress in a pink unicorn. It also includes other skins, new pedestals, animations, and other cosmetic items. The pack was originally available for free in March 2020 to anyone with a Twitch Prime account.
Prior to the DOOM Eternal release, fans of the series were assured that the game would be free of microtransactions, especially when it comes to skins and other cosmetics. That guarantee came straight from Hugo Martin, the game’s creative director.
“Eternal is a $ 60 game, not a free-to-play game or a mobile game – we’re giving you a complete no-shop experience, just like you’d expect,” Martin said on Facebook.
“Unlocking skins with XP is part of the experience if you get into this stuff, or you can ignore it completely and it won’t affect your experience at all and it’s all free.”
