Here's the deal with Assassin's Creed Origins in-game loot chests

Tom Phillips: "Loot boxes are the hot topic of games right now, and their inclusion in big-budget titles such as Destiny 2, Forza 7 and Middle-earth: Shadow of War has set tongues wagging. So, what's the deal with loot chests in Assassin's Creed Origins? Happily, it sounds like good news."

"Happily, it sounds like good news"

Heard that one before. Reminds me of Shadow of War saying it would impact the single player only you need to grind the shit out of the game (MTs for be faster) to get the true ending. You can buy them in game sure but I bet they will cost a shit load...enough to try and stress players out enough so they'll give in and buy them with real money.

Journalists will defend anything from these kind of games, look at the press kits they receive.

That's interesting but I hope it means it affects the score in general. If it's just something separate then the game could still get a 9.5/10 but the Loot Box "Good Business" score could be a bad 2/10

In the end I doubt developers would loose sleep over a separate score when they could still use the general score for promotional stuff.

From what I read on Reddit they can be only purchased with in-game currency and not for real money.

Then I suggest holding off until the evidence is clear that they have no impact. If people still pass on principles then that's their problem.

It better stay that way.

Loot boxes in SP games are just out of place. It ruins the immersion and it's just tacky.

Not as bad as it initially sounded
