Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Jump On The Lootbox Bandwagon?

RDR2 thinks that Take-Two and Rockstar can learn from EA's mistakes with Battlefront 2.

The story is too old to be commented.

I agree Take-Two will implement loot boxes. Will they be cosmetic only?Will they be pay2win randomized progression based rewards? Who knows. But if RDR2 is a gamer / consumer unfriendly cash grab, then they should receive the same treatment as EA did for SW BF2. I hope this is not the case.

Maybe the final outcome of SW BF2 debacle will sway Take-Two, one way or the other. Cosmetic only, if things turn sour for EA, or whole MT thing if SW BF2 survives the backlash.We'll see.

Microtransactions, at least...

I can bet my ass that it will have. Not in single player mind you (at least I hope), but it gonna be full of them in online mode.

I don't care. Like most single player driven games with an added online mode, I won't be touching that added on part even once.

I can't even give an informed guess to compare it to whatever the online mode was like in GTA V because, again, I never touched it ever and haven't a clue what it entails.

GTA wasn't bad it's just if you wanted to get the stuff quicker you could buy the shark cards, all they are doing is feeding the I need it now I don't want grind hold my hand generation.

Some people don't have the time to grind. One case of microtransactions that I did appreciate was for Magic the Gathering on PS3/360. You could play through the campaign to unlock all the decks, or you could spend $1 per deck. As a parent and husband, my gaming time is extremely limited, so I spent the $10 (or whatever it was) to quickly unlock all the decks, as I was really only interested in playing others online and not the AI.
