The in-app-payments feature that’s become popular with other games like Terraria, a puzzle-platformer, will become a standard feature in Terraria and other titles from developer Insomniac Games, which is owned by Take-Two Interactive.
The feature will allow players to buy achievements for online play and in-games achievements, with the goal of making it easier to track progress across multiple titles.
Players can also set up their own personal achievements.
The new feature will be rolled out to the public for the first time in a few weeks.
“We wanted to be able to take advantage of this new in-world payment system for our fans,” Insomnikas co-founder Mike Sager said in a statement.
“Terraria is one of the most popular game franchises in the world, and we wanted to provide the same level of fun and accessibility that fans have come to expect from us.”
While the in-house feature is a big departure from the way other titles have handled in-store purchases, Sager added that it will be an easier and faster way to track your progress through the game.
“For our fans, this is a great opportunity to get the in game achievements they’ve come to love so much, and to also make a real impact on the gameplay of the game,” Sager continued.
“It is going to be easier to get to the next achievement level, and more fun.”
The in store feature, as well as the new payment system, will roll out to Insomnium games starting with the game’s release on May 20.
