From the non spoiler reviews I've read it's more that the ending is a bigger grind without loot crates rather than actually being locked being them

Not exactly; my understanding is that there's a fair amount of effort required without spending anything additional, but that it's perfectly possible.

I'm still looking forward to the game, regardless.

Yeah it was along those lines, the reviewer said something about it being a 15 hour game with another 20-25 hours of grind for the final fight, unless you pay for loot boxes. I think he gave it 5 or 6/10 but judging from the youtube comments it may have been an unfair/incorrect review.

Just been watching the Angry Joe vid on Battlefront 2's "pay to win" loot boxes, needless to say he was pretty angry.
Terrible advertising, but hey it's the Dev putting it in the game.

I believe Assassins Creed games pre-orders have come with an extra mission for a long time? Dunno if they are released later on?
OP I take it you have never had the good fortune of working with the cynical genius that is your average marketing dept.

Bill Hicks views still stand up based on my experiences of working with marketing bods.

AC has had these indeed for a few generations of the game now.

AC4 Black Flag definitely had one, and so did AC3, the thing on the boxes said something about 30 minutes extra gameplay for pre orders. they weren't anything to write home about.

Load of marketing hype.

That sounds... Awful. I've got it coming today so I'm really hoping that's an exaggeration and it's not really that bad.
