In a new interview with German publication GameStar
, id Software's Tim Willits confirms the rather obvious - the upcoming Rage 2 will not feature micro-transactions in the form of loot boxes. And we say obvious because we haven't seen loot boxes in any Bethesda or id Software game so far. Which is why his rather cheeky response is quite funny.
Although in German the translation is as follows:
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 loot boxes in Rage 2?
Tim Willits: We will not have any loot boxes, I can say for sure. We have this novel approach - you buy the game and then you play it.
Announced this week, Rage 2 is currently in development by Just Cause and Mad Max's Avalanche Studios, with support from id Software. The Rage 2 gameplay trailer
which dropped the other day showcases a fast, action-packed, neon-soaked post-apocalyptic open world that is, well, impressive to say the least. Expect to see more on Rage 2 as E3 kicks off next month.
