After the first teaser and gameplay trailers for Rage 2 earlier this week showed what we can expect from the post-apocalyptic sequel, we now have confirmation of at least one other cool bit of info: It reportedly does not have loot boxes.

Speaking with German publication GameStar, id Software confirmed loot boxes are out, but that the long-tail, games-as-a-service approach is still in. According to translation by USGamer, id Software studio director Tim Willits said id wants “people to play Rage 2 longer,” though he did not elaborate on what, specifically, that would entail.

We will likely find out more about Rage 2 at E3 in a few weeks, the schedule of which you can check out here.


Our Take
Bethesda has mostly kept its hand out of the lootbox cookie jar, so can buy the notion Rage 2 wasn’t affected by the recent controversies surrounding loot boxes and their subsequent bans in Belgium and The Netherlands. Either way, nice to know!
