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)
