There has long been more to gaming than just playing games and many titles are now franchises in their own right – with a ton of merchandise to go along with them!
So it’s a good job that we have subscription boxes now and many of them contain some sweet game merch from a variety of different titles – and you get a new box of goodies each month when you sign up. It’s like a birthday or Christmas every single month.
We’ve taken a look at what is around and here are some of the best subscription boxes that you can sign up to that have game-related products to send out.
Best gaming subscription boxes
Loot Crate is one of the most well-known subscription services and they are certainly the most established having begun all the way back in 2012 – we can’t quite believe that was almost a decade ago either!
They have a special crate each month that purely caters to the gaming crowd. The latest box that you can still get until the end of April includes merch from such classic hits as Sea of Thieves, Destiny, Call of Duty and perhaps best of all, Nintendo 64 cult hit Conker’s Bad Fur Day- we’re sold.
Cost: £23+ shipping per month (Use promo code EGGSTRA25 to get 25% off)
Where to buy: Buy directly from Loot Crate
