Ubisoft’s freewheeling open world shooter is getting loot boxes. Battle Crates, coming with the next Ghost Recon: Wildlands title update, will bring all the vanity item gambling the game was missing. Spec Ops Crates will contain items usable by players in the game’s campaign mode, and Ghost War Crates will have items meant for the player vs player modes. Ghost War Crate items will only be cosmetic, while the Spec Ops items can include exclusive weapons, vehicles, and consumable items.
Just like any good pusher, Ubisoft will give all customers a free hit to start. Everyone will get a Spec Ops and Ghost War crate as a sample when the feature goes live. Additional crates will, of course, be offered for sale.
