And Battle.net will be “monetized”

 

It looks like corrective surgery has found its way online, as WoW’s Lead Designer Jeffrey Kaplan confirmed that we will see paid character customization in this game. So, if you want to change your looks or even sex in World of Warcraft world, then be ready to pay for it, although we’re not sure they’ll include more delicate procedures such as face-lifting or nose-jobs.

In other news, Diablo 3 director Jay Wilson said how they are “looking to monetize Battle.net” in order to keep bringing goodies and new features to the online gaming experience. The new battle.net is launching with Starcraft II, but Blizzard allegedly doesn’t want to include subscription fees and only some features will cost money.

We are still impressed by the fact that you have to pay a monthly subscription to play the game at all with your buddies around the world. If you still dont know what we are talking about, than be sure you watch this before you install the game.
