After criticism from users, EA removed ads for loot boxes for FIFA 21 from the toy catalog
Electronic Arts will no longer advertise microtransactions and FIFA 21 loot boxes in toy catalogs that target children. In a comment to the Video Games Chronicle portal, representatives of the company said that it was removed from all remaining copies of the magazine.
The criticised FIFA 21 AD focuses on the Ultimate Team mode. It encourages you to buy loot boxes that drop players and other items, and then use them in the game. Commenters on reddit called it unethical. They were outraged that the publisher openly advertises microtransactions to children and encourages pay-to-win mechanics. One Twitter user noted that EA is doing this for at least the second year in a row.
EA representatives said that the company will start paying more attention to where and what ads to place. They admitted that the ads for loot boxes should not have appeared where children could see them.
Earlier, residents of California filed a class action against Electronic Arts, which accused the company of violating the gambling law. Users compared sets of cards from FIFA and Madden NFL, from which you can randomly get virtual athletes of different values, with slot machines.
