"Star Wars Battlefront" is set to come out in North America on November 17 for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. It will feature both single-player and multi-player modes and let gamers play on the side of the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire.

Within the past few weeks, gamers have been wondering if the game will feature microtransactions since it will feature a currency system based on points and credits. As noted by Gamespot, developers usually use this kind of system to introduce in-game transactions that involve real money.

However, according to Niklas Fegraeus, the design director of "Star Wars Battlefront," the game will not have microtransactions that will force gamers to use real-world cash. The director explained that gamers will be able to purchase various items in the game using their credits, which can be obtained based on their performance.

"The currency system is based on your game performance," he told Gamespot during an interview. "The credits that you use to buy things in the game are earned. You play the game, complete challenges, and that's how you get credits."

Fegraeus also assured gamers that despite the game's currency system, microtransactions are not part of its core design.
