EA has disclosed the particulars of Apex Legends' Season 2 Battle Pass, as well as information on an in-game event that kicks off next week.
Fans have been calling for new content for the game for a while now and, despite Respawn's keenness on sticking to seasonal updates, it is finally offering a bit more ahead of the battle royale's second season.
Next week's event, called the Legendary Hunt, will commence on Tuesday and last two weeks. The hunt will present players with the opportunity to join the Apex Elite Queue, where they will be pitted against the very best after a top-five finish in any match. However, they must keep finishing in the top five to remain in the queue.
Players will also be rewarded with new Rare, Epic, and Legendary skins after the completion of limited-time challenges. There's double XP to be had too, but that's only happening from June 7 to June 10.
A top-five finish in any match will also earn you an entire Battle Pass level once a day while there will be Legendary Hunt skins available for purchase at the in-game store.
Players with the Wild Frontier Battle Pass will get the Legendary Honored Prey R-201 skin automatically, while the Wraith Night Terror Legendary skin (shown below) will be gifted to players who reach Battle Pass level 15 before the culmination of the event.
The finer details of the Season 2 Battle Pass will be shared via livestream on Saturday, June 8 at 10:00 am PST, but EA has noted a few improvements.
The improvements are listed below:
- Level up via Daily and Weekly Challenges.
- Time to Battle Pass level 100 should be significantly reduced.
- Three additional Legendary skins will be added to the rewards track.
- Three entirely new content categories replace badge and stat tracker rewards.
- You’ll earn enough Crafting Metal rewards from the full reward track to craft a Legendary item, or whatever your heart desires.
Full details can be found on EA's website, but we'll have to wait on the June 8 livestream for the complete revelation. For now, players can look forward to next week's Legendary Hunt, as it should be a lot of fun.
