Wayfinder Is Removing Microtransactions And Always-Online Requirement: Here’s Why

Recently, Airship Syndicate announced it would be delisting its online action-RPG Wayfinder–which it had just received the full rights to from publisher Digital Extremes–in order to make “major changes” to the game. Today, the team announced those changes are coming as the Echoes update, which will relaunch Wayfinder on June 11 as a “co-op, pay-once premium title,” meaning no microtransactions and no online requirement.
