Homefront: The Revolution will feature the bane of many gamers: in-game microtransactions, but will have free post-launch DLC, according to developer Dambuster Studios.

Unlike most recent titles, Homefront: The Revolution will not have an accompanying season pass upon release, with the free post-launch DLC offering “at least a year” of additional content. The only paid for content will be the aforementioned microtransactions.

In an interview with Gamespot, game designer Fasahat Salim reassured consumers that the microtransactions will come in the form of loot crate drops, and will not contain anything regular players can’t obtain.

It’s absolutely not a pay-to-win system because everything we’re providing in these resistance crates is available for free in the game through normal play.

All we’re offering is, for those players that don’t necessarily have the time to invest in the game, to unlock those cool things. It’s basically just a time saver for them; a shortcut to unlocking these things. They pay a little bit of money but they’re not getting anything that’s exclusive to them.

As for the post-launch DLC:

We’re not doing any sort of packs. We’re not making map packs or anything like that. As we’re done with a mission, we’re going to release it, the community can go ahead and play it, and we’re going to keep doing that for at least a year after release.

Homefront: The Revolution has a beta kicking off February 11, with the full release hitting Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 17.
