A new statement has revealed that EA and Koei Tecmo’s upcoming video game Wild Hearts will have free post-launch content and a piece of very great news for all players.
Wild Hearts’ Executive Producer Lewis Harvey recently took part in a Reddit AMA session revealing a lot of details about the game. He was asked what players could expect in terms of in-game monetization.
Wild Hearts Has Free Post-Launch Content and No Microtransactions
“All post-launch contents will be free, including new Kemono and more,” he answered. “We don’t have any plans to feature microtransactions.”
For reference, the Kemono are the large monsters in the game that players have to hunt in groups.
Play Solo and Offline with Post-Campaign
Aside from that, Harvey revealed more details about the game like playing solo. It can be done completely offline, he said, and there will be a post-campaign endgame with more powerful Kemono to fight. More Kemono will be added in the form of post-launch updates that will be free to download.
Performance and Quality Modes
Harvey has confirmed that the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of Wild Hearts will offer a default Performance mode. This mode will have 1080p and 60fps while the other optional Quality Mode will have up to 4K and 30fps.
Other than those details, Harvey revealed that there are no female-specific armor in the game at launch, which could mean there will be some in future updates. It was also confirmed that the game is not supported on Steam Deck for now. It could be supported in the future, but they do not have an ETA on that.
Wild Hearts launches on February 17, 2023 on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
