Have you played the latest Need for Speed? Just like Battlefront II, the game has its own take on loot crates and while the war on loot boxes has only just begun, it’s taken the reputation of the latest Star Wars title to see some changes, even if it’s still the lesser evil. Following the temporary halt on selling loot crates for Battlefront II, Ghost Games has revised how crates work in their game.
Following an update to Need for Speed Payback, expect to earn more XP as you play, in turn, giving away access to more frequent drops in the game. One major thing I don’t like about the newest Need for Speed is the inclusion of Speed Cards, an idea that’s in Battlefront II and absolutely feels out of place, but EA is persistent with its shady tactics, and the sole reason I canceled my purchase of Battlefront.
I hope EA learns that this is overkill on their part – but WB following with Shadow of War, loot crates are an idea that needs to become extinct.
