Blizzard Considering Adding In-game Microtransactions to World of Warcraft

Posted on July 4, 2013 AT 06:53am

Blizzard is looking into the possibility of adding microtransactions to World of Warcraft, according to senior community representative Jonathan Brown.

This confirmation comes after a spell was discovered on the Public Test Server which doubles your XP gained from killing mobs and handing in quests. The interesting part of this spell is that it mentions an in-game store. In response to this discovery Brown posted on the official forums:

“We are currently exploring the possibility of adding a way for players in certain regions to make purchases directly within the game. As part of this process, elements related to this will be appearing on the PTR. We’ll provide additional updates on our plans as development progresses.”
