Loot Crate unboxes new indie subscription service Loot Play

Loot Crate and Chrono.gg will send subscribers monthly indie games with a new service called Loot Play.

The program will deliver five Steam codes for "high quality, highly curated" indie games on the 17th of each month. Subscribers can choose to pay a yearly fee of $120 or a monthly $12 charge.

For the time being, Loot Play is only available in the US - in spite of being a wholly digital service where codes are distributed via email.

Each month features a headline “anchor” game, the first of which is Devolver Digital’s Crossing Souls. This is joined by four hidden releases, revealed when the box goes live.

"We want to help subscribers find new games that are curated with a focus on creative new voices, and we want to help these independent studios reach new audiences through our large network of Looters," said Loot Crate VP of product marketing and communications Erik Reynolds.

"Loot Play will be Loot Crate’s first digital subscription product and will open the door for the company to continue its growth through digital offerings, redefine collecting and explore the relationship fans have with content."

More information on Loot Play is available on Loot Crate’s website.
