FIFA 22 will bring back the “Preview Pack”, but the regular loot box will also remain

Electronic Arts has confirmed that FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team will continue to sell game content through loot boxes, but said it will stick to the “preview pack” launched in FUT 21 earlier this year, so that players can see what they bought before and they put down the money .

FUT packages have attracted a lot of negative heat from loot critics and legislators-the Netherlands imposed a 10 million euro (11.7 million USD) fine on EA for refusing to comply with the 2018 ruling that these packages violated the country’s gambling law-but They also made a lot of money for EA: The company stated in its report for the third quarter of fiscal year 21 that the compound annual growth rate of FIFA live broadcast services in the past ten years was close to 50%; in EA’s fiscal year 2020, the ultimate team Games (including NFL and NHL, but mainly FIFA)’s “extra content sales” net income is close to $1.5 billion. You can understand why it doesn’t want to endanger the person making money.
