Sherman Oaks, CA (USA) – October 15, 2014 – Billing solutions provider Xsolla today announced a partnership with game developer and publisher, Crytek. The collaboration means players can look forward to seamless in-game shopping and maximum flexibility when purchasing items in Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter, Warface.
By integrating Xsolla’s cross-platform payment technology into Warface, Crytek and Xsolla are empowering gamers to buy virtual currency directly in the game environment – with a choice of over 500 different payment solutions ranging from credit cards and pre-paid cards to e-wallets. Warface players will also benefit from Xsolla’s stringent anti-fraud system, excellent customer support, special offers and more.
Much like the gaming industry today, in order to stay relevant, game developers must adapt to the changing demands of their consumers.
When games were first introduced, the widely accepted norm was to sell it as a physical copy, complete with a full package of instructions, cd-rom, and possibly some extra goodies. This shifted towards digital distribution as more and more people realized convenience was one of the main influencers of purchases. This made way for mobile smartphones providing microtransactions and 1-click spontaneous purchases while providing their game or app for free. Finally, the future of this era has arrived as Xsolla announces the Item Bar.
Xsolla partnership with PayPal would allow PayPal gaming clients to take advantage of Xsolla advanced technical solutions and fraud protection services.
