Loot boxes to be restricted by UK games industry trade association

UK games industry trade association UKIE has revealed 11 new recommendations aimed at restricting the sale of loot boxes to vulnerable individuals. 

It’s hardly news that loot boxes are a controversial topic, however, the 11 industry principles surrounding the see of them in video games published by UKIE have, today, come recommended by the Technical Working Group – an investigatory body created by the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport. From the get-go, these measures will restrict the use of loot boxes for any game developers working with UKIE.
