Loot Crate launches monthly indie game subscription

Loot Play subscribers will get five games each month for $10, but only one will be revealed before launch

The subscription commerce platform Loot Crate is introducing a subscription service focused on independent PC games.

Loot Play, the first digital subscription service from Loot Crate, will be start at $10 a month, for which subscribers will receive a curated selection of indie PC games.

These "digital crates" will contain one "featured" game, which will be prominent in the marketing for that month on platforms such as Twitch, Mixer and Loot Crate's own The Daily Crate. The other four titles will be a secret until launch day, in keeping with the mysterious nature of the contents of the company's physical crates.

"We want to solve two problems with Loot Play," said Loot Crate's Erik Reynolds in a statement. "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."

"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."

The first featured game is Fourattic's Crossing Souls, which is being published by Devolver Digital.
