Hawaii is investigating publisher EA, for what it calls “predatory practices.” The American state will be investigating legislation to ban children from playing games like Star Wars Battlefront II, and potentially at a larger national scale.
"This game is a Star Wars-themed online casino," said Hawaii’s democratic state representative Chris Lee. "It's a trap."
This news follows in the wake of Belgium’s investigation of Overwatch and Star Wars Battlefront II. The country found lootboxes to be a form of gambling, and is hoping to have them banned throughout all of Europe.
