Ahhh, loot boxes, the love of every gamer’s life. What’s that you say? You hate the damn things? Oh, well that is where Shadow of Loot Box comes in as it lets you wage war on the Loot Box!
Shadow of Loot Box is available right now on Xbox One and PS4 (with a Nintendo Switch edition releasing in just a few days time on the 6th Nov), with a price of £7.99 completely going against what you thought loot boxes and micro-transactions were all about.
Coming from a small independent Russian developer, and helped along by the team at Ratalaika Games, Shadow of Loot Box allows us to look at what the gaming industry may well be like in the near future.
A first person shooter, you are left to try and navigate your way through the rather thorny issue of loot boxes, micro-transactions, bugs and glitches as you resist the temptation to pay your way through the game.
It deals with the loot box element in a way others do not and with the addition of procedurally generated quests, 16 levels to take in, 4 bosses and plenty of those damn loot boxes to destroy, it may well appeal to many.
The Xbox Store and PlayStation Store should now be able to give you the chance to get your own back on loot boxes. Go and ‘pay’ them a visit and get yourself acquainted with the cash cow world once more.
