No Lootboxes for RAGE 2

Tim Willits tells GameStar that RAGE 2 "Wir werden keine Lootboxen haben, das kann ich ganz sicher sagen." Actually he probably offered this assurance that the shooter sequel will not sell lootboxes in English, but the site is German. The short interview with the id Software designer discusses the nature of id's collaboration with Avalanche Software on the game, but they conclude asking about games as a service and lootboxes, and here's the English translation of that:

GameStar: Do you follow the Games as a Service approach with Rage 2?

Tim Willits: Yeah, we want people to play Rage 2 longer, and we think we can bring some fun stuff that makes it possible, but we'll talk about it in more detail as we move closer to the release of Rage 2 move.

GameStar: That brings us to the next point: how do you feel about Lootboxing in Rage 2?

Tim Willits: We will not have any Lootboxes, I can say for sure. We have this novel approach: You buy the game and then you play it. (laughs)

I can hardly imagine a sequel I want less than this game. Even a Daikatana sequel would be welcome just for the humor factor. Rage was so fucking mediocre, even the gunplay got boring.

You have to watch a two minute ad every time you launch the game.


Haaaaa
It's funny because someone at Activision is prolly already trying to make that happen.

Also, if you want a great single player game, The New Colossus is fanfuckingtastic, aside from a bit of a letdown of a final battle (mostly, because you don't realize it's the final shootout).

There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.
