Loot Crate, the purveyors of monthly boxes of themed goodies surrounding gaming and other geeking hobbies, are going digital with the announcement of Loot Play according to a press release from the company.
On the off chance that you don't watch literally any gaming YouTuber ever, Loot Crate is a company that offers themed monthly boxes of toys, shirts, and similar goodies shipped directly to your home every month for a nominal fee. They've decided to partner up with Chrono.gg and take things digital with the announcement of Loot Play. Check out the trailer announcing this cool new subscription service:
Loot Play will deliver 5 games via Steam codes to you on the 17th or 18th of every month for the reasonably low price of $11.99/month. You can further increase the value by subscribing for longer periods of time - buying it for an entire year gets you a nice discount and reduces the monthly cost to $10/month. Helpfully, they've decided that shipping and handling on these digital products are included in the price. How generous! Remarkably, they've even decided that you don't need to phone them to cancel the plan, which is just amazing!
The first month's featured game is Crossing Souls, a game featuring five unique characters that we reviewed in February of this year. Keeping with Loot Crate tradition, the other four games featured in Loot Play will remain a mystery until the codes start shipping out. That's not to say that the developers won't get any love - Loot Crate will be highlighting those games in some media on or around launch day so everybody gets a bit of extra promotion.
For the moment, Loot Play is limited to the United States only. If this sounds like the kind of deal you'd like to get in on, you can sign up right now over at the service's official website.
