On a Facebook post, Creative Director Hugo Martin has replied to a question saying that “we are giving you a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect.” It is really interesting to see more and more developers leaning towards a no-MTX model which is what everyone in the video game community wants.

“No store. Nothing you can unlock in Eternal with XP has anything to do with player abilities or content that would impact your game in any way. The only thing you can unlock with XP is COSMETICS. These cosmetics have no impact on how you play, they just look cool. Eternal is a $60 game, not a free to play game or mobile game – we are giving you a complete experience with no store just like you’d expect. Unlocking skins with XP is a part of the experience if you care about that stuff or you can completely ignore it and it will have no impact on your experience AT ALL and it’s all free.”
