Lootboxes are one thing of a contentious subject in the mean time – from Overwatch to Call of Duty: WWII, they’re just about all over the place you might care to look. So information that they’d be cropping up in Assassin’s Creed Origins was surprising, if not totally welcome. Fortunately, evidently the sport’s packing containers are solely available for purchase with in-game forex.
AC Origins’ lootboxes might be bought from an NPC named Reda, a wandering service provider who affords ‘Heka’ Chests (these are Magic Chests to these of you who don’t converse historic Egyptian) for three,000 Drachma, the in-game forex. In an interview with Eurogamer, sport director Ashraf Ismail stated that “you can find Reda’s stuff in the world, but the idea is if you have the money you can just buy stuff from him.”
Reda’s Heka chests do exactly appear to be a solution to play with more money if you attain the late sport. Ismail says the system is “a way for people who hoard loads of money, if you min-max the economy system, to gamble the money and get really unique stuff.” The system isn’t new to the collection, as time-saving loot packing containers that enable fast entry to high-tier content material has been round since Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.
