Lootbox Lyfe+ Xbox

Anyone that has ever bought a lootbox will know that disappointing feeling you get when a pull isn’t quite as good as you were hoping for. Some would argue it is a feeling similar to losing a bet in a bookies. Thankfully then, the whole world isn’t obsessed with them. If they were, forgetting to eat and live would be a very real prospect. In Lootbox Lyfe+, out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, we get a glimpse of that world.

The Xoobotls were a peaceful race until their world was invaded by Shadowleaf Irvine, who also introduced the concept of lootboxes to them. It wasn’t long before the Xoobotls forgot to buy essential things and instead just bought lootbox after lootbox.

I don’t think it helps that Xoobotl is an anagram of lootbox but let’s but that down to coincidence.

Now though, as the last Xoobotl in existence you are taking the fight back to Shadowleaf by traversing this platforming Metroidvania world. However, in order to get to new areas to explore, you are going to need, yes, you’ve guessed it, a lootbox. Some of those areas you will be exploring in Lootbox Lyfe+ are:

  • A shadowy cave housing a lootbox addiction experimentation site.
  • A pink fungal wasteland
  • Interdimensional structures housing powerful lootbox rewards
  • A snowy mining outpost based around extracting materials to make lootboxes

Lootbox Lyfe+ is on the Xbox Store now priced at £9.99. Unlike a lootbox, a safer bet is grabbing Lootbox Lyfe+ quickly and earning yourself a discount, dropping the price down to £7.99 for a brief period. An even safer bet would be holding on for our review which is coming very soon.
