Loot Boxes Will Not Be for Sale in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 

Posted by at 3:07 pm on October 18, 2017

Swedish studio Fatshark officially unveiled Warhammer: Vermintide 2 yesterday (watch below) with a gameplay trailer highlighting some of the new features—character careers, Heroic Deeds—and also a few fine members of the Chaos army that’s joining the fight. But they did not share how they would handle loot boxes.

Today, we get the answer!

“We will NOT be selling loot boxes, or selling keys to unlock loot boxes,” community manager Fatshark_Hedge wrote during a Vermintide 2 reveal stream Q&A on Reddit. “Loot comes from gameplay, not your wallet.” 

This is a particularly important issue right now because of the uproar over loot boxes, especially in big-budget, premium-priced games like Shadow of War and Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2  is available for pre-purchase now on Steam, and expected to be out in the first quarter of 2018.
