A lot of fans of the Borderlands series were a bit shaken with the idea of the upcoming game to have in-game purchases or also known as microtransactions. The publishers did announce that players who would want to purchase cosmetic items are welcomed to do that, but it did want to clarify what they wanted to say.

In a recent statement given to a certain publication, a representative from the publisher revealed this:

Players will have the option to purchase certain cosmetic items like character, vehicle, and weapon skins, but none of these purchases would be considered pay-to-win or impacting on the gameplay, like weapons or actual gear.

The game sequel will launch this coming Sept. 13. It will be available on PlayStation 4.
