Super news from EA. They are finally learning their lesson.

Meh. Game still looks boring.



For now. It's not uncommon to add lootboxes after launch.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Yeah I'm still not getting it. In fact I think the Battlefield/battlefront series are the only I play from EA. Also mirrors edge but I got the first free and the second for $5.

I'm a big fan of shared world games this gen like Destiny 1/2, SoT, Warframe, and Division 1 (2 when it drops). I've tried to be excited for Anthem but it just looks super bland and generic.

1. Not have them at launch/first month to get positive reviews
2. Add them when the first DLC from the season pass drops in
3. ???
4. Profit !

I liked warframe but had too many other games to play so couldn't get into it.

Yeah so best consumers wait till step 3 before buying. If they're cosmetic loot boxes then no problem.

In the worse, just make them *cough* *urrrrgggh* into microtransactions instead. Consummers gain nothing from them doing this kind of pratices.

This is basically what's going to happen. It's already happened before and recently with CoD, it'll happen with Anthem as well.

 Publishers like EA/Acti want their money, so they'll play coy and act like they've "learned" their lesson. They never do learn, they just practice at appearing less deceptive.

Happened with Battlefront 2 as well
