Contrary to the promise at the time, the first-person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 got loot boxes donated. While some of the community is on the barricades, the developers of Treyarch are striving for damage control.
With the last update, the so-called Reserve Crates moved into the first-person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
In the Reserve Crates we are in the end with nothing other than loot boxes to do. In these you will find not only the obligatory cosmetic content. In addition, waiting in the Lootboxen additional characters for the blackout mode. An event that upsets many players.
Treyarch tries to calm down the croud
To make matters worse, Treyarch promised in September 2018, and thus shortly before the release, that in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is completely waived Lootboxen. So characters and other content should be unlockable only about the gameplay or the missions. A broken promise that understandably upsets the players.
In the meantime, design director David Vonderhaar was also in favor of an opinion and tried to smooth the waves. As he said, the plans of developers or publishers may change over time.
“At the time of this interview, which took place before the game was launched, it worked just as well. If I went back in time and conducted this interview again, I would give the same answer as then. I can say what we did and what we intend to do. Things are changing that I can not foresee or know anything about. This certainly applies to the business side, where I have little insight and even less control. “
So it looks like the decision regarding the Lootboxes has been made on the management floor of Activision and Treyarch itself.
