In the past Electronic Arts was at the center of the storm for the problems of the microtransactions e loot box, the subject of discussions about their proximity to gambling. The game that suffered the most from this discussion was Star Wars: Battlefront II, but apparently the software house does not want to repeat the same mistakes.
Mark Darrah, executive producer of the game signed by BioWare, has indeed wanted to emphasize that in Anthem we will not have any loot boxes, is the history DLC will be published for free to ensure that everyone can enjoy the full experience, without finding the obstacle of payment to deepen the plot.
In any case, Microtransactions will be present in the game, but these will concern only cosmetic objects, not essential therefore. Electronic Arts he does not want to repeat the mistakes of the past and is working hard to make Anthem a big success. Will he succeed?
