With the release of Far Cry 5 next week it has been revealed the game will offer offer microtransactions. However, executive producer Dan Hay told GameSpot that what the game offers is "generous."

Ubisoft in a statement added that microtransactions will be for cosmetic items only and will not affect gameplay. They will be available for the campaign and multiplayer. 

The publisher also revealed that the campaign would be playable offline and would not require an internet connection.

"Campaign Playable Offline" it's so sad they need to clarify that, that is how it has to be.

Not on PC with Denuvo and other layers of DRM Ubisoft will have piled on top.

Look at them saying it like it's a generous that they are cosmetic only and that it's playable offline. Aren't you nice Ubi? In your own horrible way. No, thanks. Go eat dirt.

Yep, that's what microtransactions are; generous...

Makes no difference to me. I want this game NOW! But I can wait for a discount - Sea of Thieves is presently my life!

Everybody shoots at microtransactions (I would have lost faith in humanity otherwise...) but everybody's praising dlc... I don't get this nonsense since both are totally shameless scams to make players pay for things we don't have to pay.

Of course it will, because Ubisoft...
