Free to Play Cast: Defiance 2050, Lootboxes, and Who Owns Daybreak? Ep. 259
UPDATE: At 23:53 we state that Renova Group owns Columbus Nova, while many outlets have reported that, what we can find only indicates that Remova made US investments through Columbus Nova, not owned them. Stay Tuned.
On this week's show we break down our impressions on the new Defiance 2050 beta, laugh at companies like EA who just had lootboxes outlawed and specific games were mentioned, then we try to wrap our head around all the news and rumors surrounding Daybreak Games.
