Amidst the on going controversy surrounding loot boxes in video games courtesy Star Wars Battlefront 2, Apple has declared that games with loot boxes should disclose the odds of receiving items. What this means is, if a game on the App Store has loot boxes as a part of its in-app purchases, developers should clearly state what the chances are of getting rare items that could be in said loot box.

“Apps offering ‘loot boxes’ or other mechanisms that provide randomized virtual items for purchase must disclose the odds of receiving each type of item to customers prior to purchase,” reads the App Store review guidelines from the company.
