Assassin's Creed Origin's Has Loot Boxes

Assassin's Creed Origin's Has Loot Boxes

The mystery box allows players with a ton of money to gain unique weapons and items to gamble their money, and either way players can grab more weapons if they want.

"The reason we did that was because we saw, even two years ago, people playing the game in different ways", Ismail told Eurogamer.

Like every other video game movie, Assassin's Creed was a box office flop, and star Michael Fassbender thinks that he has an idea on why the film didn't fare so well in theaters. In the case of Assassin's Creed Origins though, it doesn't look like we have much to worry about on that front. And we felt like, okay, that's a valid way to play the game - it's a part of the RPG [aspect], so we'll let them play the economy.

Q1 earnings of Ubisoft's PRI, which includes digital game add-ons, in-game purchases/microtransactions, and DLC packs, has grown signficantly year-over-year.

It's kind of a shame that Ubisoft actually has to make a statement these days that Assassin's Creed Origins lootboxes for real money are nonexistent, especially considering that another singleplayer-focused game, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, has microtransactions and lootboxes.

We're not sure if the in-game e-store will have a premium currency or not, but it's possible. Eurogamer has said that the game DOES contain lootboxes, however they can only be bought in-game from an actual merchant with in-game money. "I would make it more entertaining", he said, were he to tackle the project now.

Assassin's Creed Origins is an action-adventure stealth game played from a third-person perspective. Though, Ismail says that "everything that's in the e-store you can get from playing the game". Players complete quests-linear scenarios with set objectives-to progress through the story, earn experience points and acquire new skills.
