Apex Legends takes place 30 years after the events of Titanfall 2. Its concept is borrowed from the hero shooter. Moreover, Apex has some incorporating Legends, pre-defined heroes. They have unique abilities such as Recon, support, Offensive, and Defensive. You play Apex Legends in a squad of three players. You can either team up with your friends or someone randomly.

Moreover, each player selects an exclusive Legend in turn. To become a champion, You have to compete with 20 other teams. In the start of the game, you don’t have any equipment. So, You drop in a random direction over the game’s map through dropships. As soon as you land, you and your team search for weapons, ammunition, and other health items throughout the map. At the same time, you battle to be the last team standing in an ever-shrinking safe zone. You can be knocked down into an exposed bleed-out state. Then your only option is to crawl for cover or reach any of your squadmates for reviving. You will die, if your player bleeds out, or any of your opponents uses a finisher on you.

So, after the elimination, you drop your equipment and banner for others to loot. However, your player can be respawned if your squadmates recover the banner and take it to a Spawn Beacon dotted on a map within a limited time.

Moreover, It allows you to ping map features like weapons, opponents, or rally points.

According to the Roadmap released by Respawn, the first season might launch in March and the second season in June.

What’s new?

What Respawn has confirmed so far:

  1. New cosmetics, character and weapon skins, quips, banner cosmetics, finishers will be introduced.
  2. Moreover, Apex will introduce 1-2 New Legends per season or 4-8 a year—a multitude of names of future Legends have already been determined.
  3. Addition of New weapons.
  4. Furthermore, New and increased loot.

However, its still not confirmed that apex would include the new Legends with the battle pass or exclusively unlocked via the free currency known as Legend Tokens. Moreover, you get the legend tokens when you level up. For example- The first two Legends that you need to unlock are Caustic and Mirage. They will cost you 12,000 Legend Tokens, and future Legends are likely to be similar.

How will Battle Pass Work?

Recently, Data miners have found out that EA might introduce “free” and “diamond” tier of Battle Pass. So, most probably it’s true that apex might introduce cosmetics and rewards unlockable. Moreover, It is quite similar to its competitors such as Pubg and Fortnite.

So, you might need to complete gameplay challenges, or use exp points to increase the rank up from one tier to another tier in search of additional rewards. However, it’s possible that there will be at least some kind of prizes if you haven’t paid for a pass.

Cost of Season 1 Battle Pass

Pricing of a battle pass plays an essential role in its future. However, Respawn still hasn’t shared any price yet, but some of the hints point out that the exclusive seasonal content might unlock “through gameplay,” which is quite similar to other battle royale games such as fortnite and pubg. With both PUBG’s royal pass and Fortnite battle pass clocks in at almost exactly $10. Moreover, Fortnite’s battle pass costs 950 V-Bucks, or $9.50. So, the Battle Pass of Apex legends might range in the same price range around 1000 APEX coins.

Final Words

To conclude, I would say that Apex Legends, just after its official has risen immensely. It gained 2 Million players in a day and 25 Million players in a week. It is giving tough competition to its competitors such as Pubg and Fortnite. Now, all EA need is a mobile version of Apex Legends for markets like India where the mobile gaming industry is on the rise. According to some sources, EA is currently working on the Mobile version of Apex Legends. Moreover, if you have questions regarding Apex Legends then don’t forget to ask us via the comment section.
