EA = Electronic Arse (highfive)
Does this allow you to get both?
Apex also has a small collection of rotating gun and character skins too.
EA have been the masters of in-game currency, microtransactions, and locked content for a lot longer than the current crop of F2P games have been around for. Just think back to the online passes that were needed back in the PS3 and 360 days.
It's interesting that Epic stayed well away from loot boxes and kept to rotating skins and dances. Maybe this is more acceptable than the excitement/addictive nature of an RNG loot box - as a parent I prefer the Epic approach myself, i.e. you can choose what you want to buy (or not) rather than 'roll the dice'. At the end of the day it all boils down to generating revenue and maximising profits for the shareholder whilst a game is flavour of the month. I should add I'm not a big fan of F2P but it clearly works for some games.
