The Season 2 Battle Pass for Apex Legends comes in June, according to Apex Legends developer Respawn, also the new in-game event called The Legendary Hunt will launch next Tuesday and will last for two weeks.
Along with new content, your experience will be getting better, the adjustments make progression easier and add more rewards.
In an EA blog post, Lead Product Manager Lee Horn highlighted some details devs are focused on:
- Time to Battle Pass level 100 should be significantly reduced.
- Three additional Legendary skins 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.
Season 2 will feature Daily and Weekly challenges, thus letting players level up their Battle Pass tiers faster, different from first season where ranking was possible only by playing the game and earning experience points. “If you miss a few weeks or start late, your Weekly Challenges will still be around for you when you return, and you can complete them all at once,” said Respawn.
Season 1 Issues Fixed
The main complaint from Season 1 players was a huge amount of time to reach level 100. Respawn claims that in Season 2 it’s not a problem anymore.
“While we don’t want to introduce wacky challenges that drastically warp the way you play the game, these challenges should provide some interesting variation from game-to-game. This means all players should feel more rapid Battle Pass progression and the journey will hopefully be more fun and interesting. Also, this addition should allow players who can only dedicate a few hours a week to the game to make a very deep cut into their Battle Pass progression.”
Another problem with Season 1 is skins, letting you customize characters, but the Battle Pass didn’t have a lot of them.
“We’re adding three Legendary items to the Battle Pass,” writes Respawn. “And there will now be a Legendary item every 25 Battle Pass levels in the premium track, including at purchase — that’s level 1, level 25, level 50, level 75, and level 100. Our goal is to have a nice balance of cool character exclusives and cosmetics for everyone — like weapon skins.”
The studio will tell us more about second season of Apex Legends while EA Play stream on Saturday, June 8.
