RAGE 2 Dev Confirms Game Won’t Feature Lootboxes

id Software won’t implement lootboxes in upcoming RAGE 2.

id Software recently announced RAGE 2, the sequel to the wasteland apocalyptic action shooter RAGE.

id Software’s co-owner Tim Willits was recently featured in an interview with German website Gamestar, where he confirmed the studio’s intention to keep people playing Rage 2 for a long period of time with the continuous addition of content and “”fun stuff.” He also revealed there won’t be lootboxes, jokingly saying they are trying a new approach where they sell game and people play it fully.

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.  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)

Here are the main features in Rage 2.

id Software’s shooter pedigree and Avalanche Studios’ open world prowess is dream-team-made-real for RAGE 2. It’s more than a shooter, more than an open world game – it’s a shooterverse.

Seamlessly traverse a vast and varied landscape, from lush jungles and treacherous swamps to sun-scorched deserts in your pursuit of The Authority. The wasteland is massive, and you’ve got the arsenal to fight for every inch.

From monster trucks to gyrocopters, use an assortment of rugged and wasteland-ready vehicles to speed across the badlands. If you see it, you can drive it.

Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons, devastating Nanotrite powers, and Overdrive, the ability to push your guns beyond their mechanical limits.

Fight against ferocious factions for control of the wasteland, each featuring a rogue’s gallery of madmen, mutants, and monsters hungry for blood.

RAGE 2 releases in Spring 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
