Microtransactions on tap for Diablo III, but not in the US or EU


Blizzard is likely adding microtransactions to Diablo III. The proposed funny money and its associated features won’t be coming to European or American versions of the game, at least for now.

Blizzard announced its intentions on the Battle.net forums by calling attention to “new features that may start to show up in data-mined information for patch 2.2 that will not apply to all regions.” Things like timed experience boosts, platinum currency, and new cosmetic items were mentioned, along with associated UI tweaks that will purportedly benefit players worldwide.

“While we may explore [microtransactions] in some regions, we have no immediate plans to implement such purchases or the aforementioned features anytime soon for the Americas region,” Blizzard says.
