European games ratings board PEGI has announced it will add warnings about in-game purchases to boxed games in the coming months.
A new descriptor, pictured below, will be included in the information on the box of any title that offers the possibility of further spending after purchases - for example, on booster items or loot boxes.
PEGI notes it already uses such a descriptor for digital-only games via the IARC (International Age Rating Coalition) system, but will now ensure these also appear on the packaging of physical releases. This is expected to come into effect by the end of the year.
<figure class="small"></figure>It's a move that follows last year's controversy over loot boxes and other titles that gave players the option to spend real money on random virtual items - a trend that has since prompted authorities to question whether such mechanics constitute gambling.
