Playerunknown försvarar lootlådor i Battlegrounds

Kommer gynna alla i framtiden

Spel / PC

Nyligen blev det känt att Bluehole kommer lägga till lootlådor i Playerunkown's Battlegrounds som du kommer kunna låsa upp för en slant. Lootlådorna kommer endast vara tillgängliga i samband med spelmässan Gamescom som drar igång i slutet av augusti och pengarna som utvecklarna får in går till en prispott som kan vinnas under Gamescom-turneringen samt välgörenhet.

Spelare har blivit lite upprörda på grund av lootlådorna då Brendan Greene, mer känd som Playerunknown, lovat att spelet inte kommer få någon form av mikrotransaktioner förrän spelet lämnar early access. Utöver det verkar de inte vara så sugna på att betala upp mot 10 dollar för att kunna lägga vantarna på en hel utstyrsel. Greene har i samband med den kommande augusti-uppdateringen av Battlegrounds skrivit ett litet försvarstal om lootlådorna. Greene menar att de behöver köra en testrunda för att få rätt drop rates och kunna strukturera ekonomin:

While our intention was and still is to add the full feature to the game when we move into actual release, we do need to test it prior to launch and at Early Access so that it is stable and ready to be fully introduced to our community. The idea of testing, prior to full implementation, is at the heart of adding every new game feature in our game, and this includes the crate and key system which we believe will serve as the foundation of a healthy economy after launch.
This is an economy that would and should benefit all players - both who are willing to pay and who are not willing to pay for vanity items. It is important that all our players are able to enjoy the various items that will be provided for customisation, and it is even more crucial that we have a stable self-sustaining economy that maintains the value of the items you have purchased or gained.

Utöver detta har gänget släppt patch notes för den kommande augusti-uppdateringen och ändringarna hittar ni i faktarutan här nere.
