Epic Will Allow Players To Preview Loot Box Items In All Future Titles
In January, Epic Games altered how its loot boxes, a.k.a. llamas, operated in Fortnite: Save the World. Players could preview the contents of their next loot box and, if they didn't like it, could wait until the next day for it to reset. It was better, we thought, than what Valve did with Dota 2 loot boxes in the Netherlands, which allowed for a similar preview but didn't ever give you new contents, unless you bought what was presented to you.
Now, Epic will be taking its approach to all of its games with loot boxes. In a statement to GamesIndustry.biz, the developer stated that "Going forward, we're committed to the same transparency for player purchases in all Epic Games titles." The remarks come shortly after Rocket League, which is developed by Epic-owned Psyonix, adopted a similar preview function with its loot boxes.
