Yves Guillemot: “We have no pay-to-win elements in our games”

first_imgYves Guillemot: “We have no pay-to-win elements in our games”Ubisoft CEO addresses investor concerns that players will reject games that are too microtransaction-heavyRebekah ValentineSenior Staff WriterThursday 24th October 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleUbisoftWith three AAA game delays, Ubisoft spent some time today reassuring its investors that continued spend in live games would keep the company sturdy until its predicted improvements in fiscal year 2020-2021. And according to CEO Yves Guillemot, none of that revenue includes “pay-to-win” microtransactions.On today’s call with investors, Guillemot was asked if he was “concerned that gamers are beginning to rebel against more aggressive monetization in games.” He replied that Ubisoft’s gains in live service revenue over the last few years are not linked not to aggressive increases in microtransactions. Rather, improved revenues from existing games can be attributed to overall rise in player engagement and in Ubisoft’s dedication to updating its live service games regularly with events.”When we are able to create events that bring people to stay longer in our games, they are spending money in our games from time-to-time,” he said. “What we consider is that in bringing a high-quality experience, we can increase the revenue per game, knowing that this is because we created more content on a regular basis.”In the case of Ghost Recon, our philosophy is for the player to play the full game, 100%, without having to spend money. We have no pay-to-win elements in our games, and what we can say there is that [this is] the philosophy we have for all our games, but it has to be linked to more events, more content for players to play longer.”Guillemot appears to be referencing a recent issue in Ghost Recon Breakpoint when early access players found several “time-savers” in the in-game shop that allowed players to boost experience points, get skill points, and materials for advanced weapon upgrades for real money. Ubisoft removed these items, saying their addition was a mistake and that “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint doesn’t include any pay-to-win elements.””These items were designed as an optional way for players arriving later to the game (post-launch) to catch up with those who have been playing for longer and enjoy our co-op and challenging end-game experiences,” Ubisoft saif at the time. “These time-savers have since been removed from our store for now.””Players were spending time in the store and buying things in Wildlands, and our teams thought they could give them more choice” Yves GuillemotThat said, the game still sells weapon blueprints, attachments, and vehicles, all of which can be used in both PvE and PvP play. In fact, every item you can get in the game can also be bought with real money.When asked later on today’s call if the critical backlash against Breakpoint was related to the existence of the microtransactions at launch (as opposed to adding them later once the game had a stronger player community), Guillemot said the decision had been made because of the success of Ghost Recon Wildlands’ store (which included similarly gameplay-affecting microtransactions, but sold in bundles rather than individually).Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans! North West Amiqus GamesJunior Video Editor – GLOBAL publisher United Kingdom Amiqus GamesDiscover more jobs in games “On live games like Ghost Recon Wildlands, we already had a store and people were buying items on the store,” Guillemot said. “What we did was give more options at the beginning of Breakpoint. We understand it has been seen as too big a store and that it was really not appreciated at all, but it came from the fact that players were spending time in the store and buying things in Wildlands, and our teams thought they could give them the opportunity to have more choice. Which has not been well-interpreted, but that was the goal.”Breakpoint isn’t the first time players have pushed back against Ubisoft’s “time-saver” items. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was criticized at launch last year for its permanent XP boost items available for real money purchase, as well as other purchases that gave players extra in-game money or better weapons. Incidentally, the company banned XP farming missions from being created by players in the mission-maker tool this past July.It’s a stark contrast to The Division 2, which only has cosmetics available through microtransactions and loot box rewards. Trials Rising and Far Cry New Dawn have similarly sold only cosmetic microtransactions. Starlink: Battle for Atlas arguably included microtransactions, though they were in the form of toys-to-life figures players had to buy separately to obtain different ships, parts, and characters…and they were discontinued earlier this year due to the game’s underperformance.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

Titans bench Marcus Mariota for Ryan Tannehill against Broncos; Week 7 starter undecided

first_imgNews flash: The Tennessee Titans now have a quarterback controversy.The Titans benched starter Marcus Mariota late in the third quarter against the Broncos Sunday and brought in veteran backup Ryan Tannehill. Mariota completed only 7-of-18 passes for 63 yards with two interceptions before getting the hook. The Broncos were leading 13-0 at the time.He was also sacked three times, highlighting one of the big criticisms against him as he often holds onto the ball too long.Fun fact: Marcus Mariota hasn’t thrown an interception this year.He’s also the most sacked QB in the league. pic.twitter.com/gTh8JYGaBb— Joe Rowles (@JoRo_NFL) October 13, 2019Titans coach Mike Vrabel told reporters after the game he hasn’t decided who will start the team’s Week 7 game against the Chargers.”I’ll let you know as soon as I figure it out and do what’s best for the team,” Vrabel said.Vrabel explained his reason for benching Mariota. “At that point in time what we’re really just trying to find a way to move the football and score some points,” he said.Mariota has never lived up to the huge expectations that came when he was drafted with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Titans acquired Tannehill from the Dolphins via trade in the offseason to back up Mariota, but it now appears he will challenge for the starting role moving forward.last_img read more

PSG upset Klopp in Paris, both behaviour and score wise

Powered by Firework Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is unhappy with the way some Paris Saint-Germain players behaved and acted on Thursday in their Champions League clash in Paris, which saw the Merseyside visitors go 2-1 down to the hosts in a foul and free kick flooded match.Advertisement The German coach claimed PSG made his side look like “butchers” in a match where 20 fouls to Liverpool’s name and 12 for the hosts were booked by Polish referee Szymon Marciniak, who showed eight yellow cards during the game, six for Liverpool players, and Klopp went on to say the opposition side’s players conducted themselves in a very unsportsmanlike way.“If you act like you die and the next moment you get up again, you give a yellow card. It is not sportsmanlike behaviour,” he said. “In the end, it is hectic all the time, everyone is going down and it is not football anymore. I never expect help from a ref, but calm all these things down.”Advertisement Klopp believes his side played with a lot of passion but was certainly frustrated with the number of interruptions in the game which eventually took a toll on his rather calm players and pushed them over to their aggressive side.Liverpool have now lost all three of their outings in the Champions League and now rely on the fans and the atmosphere at home to get the three points when they host Napoli in a little less than 2 weeks, failing to do which, will force the Reds out the CL exit in the group stage itself.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more
