Report: Rage 2 Will Not Have Loot Boxes

After the primary teaser and gameplay trailers for Rage 2 earlier this week confirmed what we will anticipate from the post-apocalyptic sequel, we now have affirmation of a minimum of one different cool bit of information: It reportedly doesn’t have loot bins.

Talking with German publication GameStar, id Software program confirmed loot bins are out, however that the long-tail, games-as-a-service method continues to be in. In response to translation by USGamer, id Software program studio director Tim Willits mentioned id needs “folks to play Rage 2 longer,” although he didn’t elaborate on what, particularly, that may entail.

We’ll possible discover out extra about Rage 2 at E3 in a number of weeks, the schedule of which you’ll be able to take a look at here.


Our Take
Bethesda has largely stored its hand out of the lootbox cookie jar, so should buy the notion Rage 2 wasn’t affected by the recent controversies surrounding loot bins and their subsequent bans in Belgium and The Netherlands. Both approach, good to know!
