Monster Hunter: World won't have loot boxes

Praise Capcom

Well, at least Capcom hasn't bought into the loot box craze quite yet. In an interview with Gamespot, Monster Hunter Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto revealed that World won't be featuring them. Here is what he had to say:

"You've already kind of got loot as a core gameplay aspect without having to shove a microtransaction version of it in.

Our focus is on wanting to get people to play our action game and feel the kind of satisfaction that comes with the achievement you get with completing a hunt and getting rewards. We want people to have the experience that we've made for them rather than the option to skip the experience."

If Monster Hunter: World wasn't a day one title for me already, it would be now. Now more than ever, we need to support games that don't try to nickel and dime us at every possible turn.


I agree with you completely! I hadn’t planned on getting Monster Hunter, but now I am VERY much considering it. It’s refreshing to see a company not planning to micro-transaction us to death.

Well this might tip you over the edge; Capcom almost always releases free DLC in the weeks that follow Monster Hunter releases. I'm not sure if they have confirmed this for World, but I would be shocked if they didn't. So not only are they not going to be using micro transactions, they are also going to be giving us free DLC similar to Splatoon.

Yep, that does it. Definitely buying on Day 1; thanks so much for telling me. I told my friends about the non-micro transaction stance and they are buying it too. It will be the first time we’ve all played Monster Hunter and we’re planning to hunt as a team.
