Rocket League’s loot boxes have always been a source of contention, most recently back in April when they were effectively banned in the Netherlands and Belgium due to new laws in those countries.
It seems now that Psyonix are dropping them altogether, with a statement from the company stating all randomized crates will be gone later in the year, with a new system that lets you see the items you’re buying in advance.
Here at Psyonix, and Epic Games as a whole, we are dedicated to creating the best possible experience for our players all over the world. In pursuit of that goal, later this year we will remove all paid, randomized Crates from Rocket League, replacing them with a system that shows the exact items you’re buying in advance.
Apparently the company have stated that the new system will allow players to see what they’re going to get before they purchase, with Rocket Pass Premium and the DLC cars staying the same as they are currently.
Stay tuned to GameFront for more on this as we learn it.
