More and more loot boxes started appearing in games and players weren’t happy about that. EA is the first company to start pushing loot boxes in all its games because it’s an easy way of generating revenue. However, the fact that players need to purchase loot boxes in order to get rewards for the game that they already bought is not fair. To make things even worse, players have no idea of knowing what’s in those loot boxes and they don’t usually get what they want.
The Loot Boxes Controversy
It should come as no surprise that loot boxes are associated with gambling and that no one wants them in their favorite games. The entire gaming community got together and turned on EA to show that loot boxes need to be removed.
EA saw that everyone stopped pre-ordering its games and stopped trying to force loot boxes on people. Now, Turn 10 Studios is doing the same.
Forza Removes Loot Boxes
Turn 10 Studios is the company that is in charge of the famous Forza franchise and Studio Head Alan Hartman recently announced that all loot boxes are going to be removed. To make things even better, all upcoming Forza games will also stop featuring tokens anymore which are an in-game currency that can be bought with real-life money.
Studio Head Speaks Out
“While we’ve never charged money for prize crates in Forza Motorsport 7, their presence in the game has continued to be a source of controversy. The overwhelming feedback has been that this system feels out of place in the game. After careful consideration, we have decided to completely remove prize crates from Forza Motorsport 7,” said Alan Hartman in a recent interview.
All that’s left now is for Alan Hartman and his team to figure out how to introduce all the exotic cars that were exclusive through loot boxes in the game. Although, this is not going to be a difficult task since the developers can simply create challenges for those rewards.
