No more money spending! Loot Boxes are not sold for real currency
Recently, developers of the even high-budget blockbusters like Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Destiny 2 do not think about their reputation and add to the game paid loot boxes with random useful items. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in that such chests will meet you and in Assassin’s Creed: Origins.
Of course, for every self-respecting gamer who has already laid out fifty bucks for the game itself, it’s an occasion to think about whether the chests will spoil his game, especially if those players do not want to pay for them with real money. The project manager of the Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Ashraf Ismail confidently responds: your game will not be spoiled by loot boxes.
In an interview with Eurogamer, the developer confirmed that in Assassin’s Creed: Origins, “mysterious” chests with random weapons or equipment (called Heka Chest) that can be purchased from a local Reda dealer for 3000 in-game drachmas are not sold for real currency. Exclusively for virtual coins, obtained during the game.
Loot obtaining ways in Assassin’s Creed: Origins
According to Ismail, Ubisoft noted that users have different approaches in a looting. Some people like to break into a military location and steal equipment in the hope of finding something unique or legendary. While others prefer to engage, so to speak, the economy – to save, buy and sell everything that can be useful. And exactly for the second category of peoples, we decided to open an in-game shop with loot boxes.
By the way, if according to the game director of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, everything that you see in the game store (like alternative costumes for Bayek or sets that save your time, as in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag), can also be obtained by honest work, that is, through the game.
