Development studio Psyonix has announced it disabled loot boxes in its arena soccer racing game Rocket League for players in the Netherlands and Belgium due to government regulations.
Players within the Netherlands and Belgium are now no longer able to open Crates with Keys. This change is said to be due to "government regulations". For affected players loot box opening has been disabled with patch 1.61 that was released earlier today.
It isn't the first time that a game has disabled loot boxes in these countries. Earlier this year battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was also forced to disable loot boxes because of similar reasons, which development studio PUBG Corp. then considered "legal interpretations".
