It's a known fake, as basically every single "leak" about TESVI is at this point.
This is part of why it was so UNbelievable. Fake leakers generally say things that people already find to be probable.I, on the other hand, find it somewhat believable. I'd say about 50% of what the leaker wrote to be probable.
some of the in-game merchants will sell you items for real-world cash. The idea is to make it feel natural in the world rather than buying these products externally to the gameplay experience. The Creation Club made lots of money despite the criticisms, so there's no way they're backing down.
I'm not sure how they could make something like that without it breaking immersion. I hope they at least offer the option to remove references to microtransactions from the game.
"Connect PayPal to your Bethesda account, ingame transaction will be automatically removed from your PayPal funds".
Just to be clear, you know I completely made the whole thing up as an example, right? There is no indication that they will actually do this. (Unless Todd Howard is reading this thread and a lightbulb just went off in his head...)It would still need to be made very clear when you would be spending real money, which would break immersion any time you see it.
I don't want to be reminded of my financial situation during my escapism.
