Dead Space 3 will be the first entry in the franchise to include microtransactionsEurogamer reports today that the action game will allow players to use real-world money to purchase various resources like materials and scrap parts. This is entirely optional, Dead Space 3 associate producer Yara Khoury explained.

“You can buy resources with real money, but scavenger bots can also give you the currency that you can use on the marketplace, so you don’t have to spend [real-world] dollars,” Khoury said.

It was not revealed how much the microtransactions would cost, though Khoury said players will have several currency bundle options to choose from.

Though players will be able to buy items in Dead Space 3, Khoury explained that gamers will not be able to obtain high-level weapons right away. “There are a lot of weapon parts that are only available to buy later in the game. Unless you’re playing through it again [on New Game Plus],” Khoury said.

Dead Space 3 comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on February 5 in the United States and February 8 in Europe.
