A sad, sad time for gaming this is.
Assassin’s Creed Origins, a game that was shaping up to be the best in the series, has loot boxes. While this is in no way new to the “AAA” gaming industry, it is sad news nonetheless. Whether these will be purchasable ONLY with in-game currency, or through the means of real-life currency, remains to be seen.
Thanks to a neogaf thread, we were able to get a glimpse of Heka Chests.
Seems like Ubisoft has taken the “Nothing is true, everything is permitted” quote to a whole new level. However, what these loot boxes may contain has not been confirmed yet.
We are still very much excited for Assassin’s Creed Origins, but the introduction of loot boxes to another single player game is not a good sign of what is to come.
