id Software boss Tim Willits has confirmed that RAGE 2 will NOT include loot boxes. This announcement comes in the aftermath of a storm of criticism leveled at full-priced games that included loot box elements, notably Battlefront II.

That said, RAGE 2 will feature some live-service elements, though Willits claims this new model will simply allow those who've completed the game to get some extra post-game fun.

In the wise words of Mr. Willits, “you buy the game and then you play it.”
