If you thought pesky microtransactions and DLC were a problem before, get ready to laugh as well as cry as Stately Snail and Ratalaika Games have announced that Shadow of Loot Box will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch before Christmas. A parodic take on the loot box trend, players will have to contend with the pesky hand of micropayments while traversing a land filled with deadly enemies and DRM connection issues; though to be fair, that could be the same thing.
If you always thought that there were too few loot boxes in other games, this game is for you!
Shadow of Loot Box is an attempt to present what video games can become in the near future.
Each level of this shooter is a reference to a popular trend in the modern game development industry.
Will you be able to overcome the thorny path full of microtransactions, loot boxes and bugs, resisting the temptation to use the in-game store?
Check out the trailer above (though you might have to experience a pay wall), and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
