2K wants Belgians to lobby for loot boxes

NBA 2K19 will not offer real-money cars packs to those in Belgium after a Belgian Gambling Commission on loot boxes, and 2K doesn’t like that at all. The publisher appealed to Belgians to contact local government representatives in order to lobby for the return of loot boxes.

“We have made some local changes to the MyTeam mode. These changes are necessary in order for us to accommodate the BGC’s interpretation of the Belgian Gaming Act,” 2K said in a recent statement. “Specifically, we will be turning off the ability to purchase packs with premium (non-earned) currency/VC. Gamers are still able to acquire packs with MyTeam points.”

Should players not like that, they’re encouraged to “contact your local government representative to communicate your opinion.”

NBA 2K19 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch on 11 September. Aussie Ben Simmons is our local cover star.
