All good things come to an end sometime. That’s Overwatch, which at one time set the fashion for loot boxes, is going to abandon this form of earnings. Players will be able to purchase boxes of random rewards until the end of the online shooter’s sixth anniversary celebration event. About it Blizzard
said in the description of “Holiday Remix: Part 3”.
Interestingly, the English version of the text says that the sale of loot boxes will stop after August 30th. And in Russian, that the measure will only affect anniversary containers. Perhaps the restriction will be regional. However, both versions agree that it will be possible to get ordinary boxes using the in-game currency after the end of the event.
During the celebration of the anniversary, seasonal brawls will return to the game: story co-op adventures, lucioball, capture the flag and other modes. Their launch will take place on certain days. Also, users will once again have a chance to get hold of the legendary skins from the archives.
Probably the withdrawal from the sale of loot boxes in the first
is preparation for the release of the sequel, in which they will not be in principle. Instead, they are going to monetize the project with the help of a battle pass and an in-game store.
even got into a controversy over a survey asking users if they were willing to pay $45 for a skin. The developers had to separately explain that prices have not yet been set.
