EA’s revival of Skate is set to feature loot boxes. According to Insider Gaming, playtesters for the game that is currently in its pre-alpha stages, have reported that the game features loot boxes called “Swag Bags” in the game.

In the game’s current state, the only way to get access to these Swag Bags is to spend a currency called Stars, which can be earned by completing various challenges in the game.

Skate‘s loot boxes will contain one out of five items that can be seen before making the purchase. The game doesn’t reveal the odds of getting any one item over another, however. Rather than duplicate protection, the game will instead replace duplicate items with another currency, Hype, which can be used to craft specific items.

Currently, Skate features 16 lootboxes, with 80 items in total. It is quite likely that more items and lootboxes will be added to the game as time goes on.

Skate is set to be a free-to-play game, and will be coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. The game will also feature crossplay and cross-progression.
