Destiny is adding microtransactions, starting with emotes


Bungie is opening another revenue pipeline for its popular Destiny, as the game will introduce microtransactions next week.

“This coming Tuesday, October 13th, Tess Everis will return to The Tower with a new look, a new storefront, and some new items to sell,” Bungie posted. “Initially, Tess will offer eighteen brand new emotes. Like the trio of emotes offered via The Taken King Collector’s Edition, these emotes are completely optional, and won’t impact the action game in any way.”

The studio will be giving some free silver — Destiny’s MTX currency — to all players to buy an emote or two and said that it will be using the proceeds from sales to “bolster the service provided by [its] live team.”
