During EA’s Play press conference, It was revealed that Anthem will not have loot boxes or be pay to win. Players can still use real money to purchase in-game items, but they are only cosmetic and don't impact the gameplay. In a statement from Game director Jon Warner to Game Informer “We have a couple pillars that we stick to, and generosity to our players is number one on that list. Making sure you feel you got a great value for what you bought, and that you get everything you think you should get for that money. And then, as we continue to service this game and create more stuff for it, allow you the opportunity to buy cosmetic items and vanity items that you’re interested in. But no loot crates. No pay-to-win. Strictly cosmetic.”
Check out the new trailer below. Anthem will release on February 29, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
