However, non-gameplay effecting stuff like weapon skins and the like will be available through micro-transactions. This is the same model for Ubisoft's "Rainbow Six Seige" and Blizzard's "Overwatch". Good on Ubisoft, I hope this becomes a trend. Though, I feel like full on expansion packs like the ones for Fallout 4 or Destiny shouldn't/won't be included as those probably cost the devs a lot more money to make than a few weapons and maps and weapon skin micro-transactions won't be able to fund full on expansion packs. I am still OK with those shortcut kits. If players don't have the time or will to grind for stuff and as long as that stuff isn't more powerful than what most of the other players have, I don't have a problem with them.
