New Need For Speed will get free updates but no paid DLC or microtransactions

Need For Speed fans got some good news from Electronic Arts this week. The publisher said the upcoming reboot of the popular racing game franchise for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles will get some post-release content updates but it won't have any paid DLC packs or microtransactions.

In a new FAQ page about the game, EA says:

"We plan to release a series of free content updates for Need for Speed. We currently have no plans for any paid DLC.""There will be no micro transactions."

In an era where major games get post-release DLC packs, either paid on their own or via "Season Passes", it's good to hear that the new Need For Speed game won't be following that formula. The console versions will be out on November 3, with the PC version delayed until sometime in the spring of 2016.
