The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different weapons and gear.
As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Alpha and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we're looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily basis, and we'll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via gameplay.
We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.
Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.

There will be a "season pass"
It will result in 4 lootcrates that are guaranteed to have at least 1 top tier item in each crate.

Another possible option for the long-term, is that aliens will drop the crates, and you'll be able to purchase in-game Keys to open them.

The question is, will Xenomorphs get their own "Loot-Eggs"??????

I like where yer thinkin. I'll take twenty, and do a youtube channel based off CM Loot boxe openings.
"Young Carrier (920) (follow) hisses, "Shut up both of you or we aren't going to invade disneyland."

Long time ago, I, Ka'Torag-na Halkrath, Skilled Master Hunter Of Prey, Unleashed an unspeakable evil upon Xenos and Humans! But a foolish Xeno Hunter wielder of robustness stepped forth and opposed me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore a gate of Salt of Solitude and flung em into the world of CM, and took out their Facehugger Capabilities! Now, this Xeno Fool seeks to return the favour, and undo my evil reign and of many other predator predecessors!
