Electronic Arts stands behind their use of Loot Boxes
It never fails; when we mention gaming controversy, we mention EA. Loot Boxes have been a long-running hot button issue in gaming. They’ve made appearances in a variety of titles like Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, and other games that seemingly would not need them. In the latest update, EA has taken their stance in continuing support of their use of loot boxes. Despite the backlash and changes in games like Star Wars Battlefront II, EA makes it known that the mechanic will not be removed entirely from their games.
