Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has captivated fans since its February 4 release and now they’re gearing up for the launch of the game’s first piece of major content – a battle pass.

The free-to-play battle royale game has swept across the gaming landscape like wildfire, picking up over 25 million players within the first two weeks of release.

The popularity of the game shows no signs of slowing down as Respawn continue to address issues that arise in the game – ranging from something as small as an annoying in-game bug to banning over 16,000 cheaters. 

While information regarding the battle pass is scarce, here’s everything we know right now.  

What’s in the Battle Pass?

It has already been confirmed that Respawn will release a battle pass system for Apex Legends, similar to Epic Games’ handling of Fortnite, when its first season of new content releases in March.

Players who purchase the battle pass will be entailed to exclusive cosmetic items and Apex Packs, where the cosmetic items will have a seasonal theme to them. 

It’s quite likely that new cosmetics will entail some things like new banners, voice lines and skins for each of the game’s legends – giving fans more ways to customize their favorite characters.

When is it coming out?

Respawn announced their year one roadmap shortly after the game’s release. However, they didn’t give any details about set dates for new additional content. All we know is that March will mark the beginning of Season One.

What we do know, though, is that the second season will happen in March while season’s three and four will be released in September and December respectively.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers will soon be able to drop into games with brand new cosmetic items.

How much will it cost?

It’s a good question, but again, information is light on the ground and only Respawn knows what the pricing will look like. 

The pricing of the battle pass will depend on what is set to be released via the add-on system, so it remains to be seen. 

What else is coming?

In a recent game update blog post, Respawn confirmed that new Legends will be added to the game when season one kicks off.

Thankfully, for players who don’t purchase the battle pass, they won’t be locked behind any sort of paywall and the game will be accessible for all.

Apex Legends player finds bug that makes Lifeline’s drones unbreakable

An Apex Legends player discovered a new bug the hard way when Lifeline’s Drone acted indestructible when they tried to shoot through it to get to an enemy, failing miserably.

Lifeline has been in Apex since day 1, and has been a go-to legend ever since primarily for her powerful healing abilities. Even though we’ve had well over a year to learn her kit, some bugs are still popping up.

We all know the futility of trying to attack a Lifeline’s shield while she rezzes a teammate, but it’s also worth noting that a new bug is turning her healing drone invulnerable, making it impossible to destory.

Name a better Apex Legends duo, we’ll wait.

That’s right, while it may be small, with the bug it sure is mighty, though to be fair you don’t often see the Drone being used as cover, because so far it’s been destructible.

So, the clip below can really teach us two lessons here: think twice before shooting through the drone, and that Lifelines should think about crouching behind it whenever possible, because you never know, right?

In the shot, Reddit user TheChapelOfWhite comes upon the unsuspecting healer and seems to be well on their way to an easy kill. That is until they empty a full clip into the drone, which does nothing but alert the other player and their squad.

After that, ChapelOfWhite is unceremoniously cut down by Lifeline’s teammates who appear almost instantly to protect their support.

It’s an embarrassing way to go out, that’s for sure, but instead of tossing their controller out the window and swearing off Apex for a few days as some would have done, they instead took to Reddit to post the clip of the apparent glitch.

With so many new legends added in between release and where we are now, it’s kind of crazy that this hasn’t happened, or at least been shared before. Lifeline is one of the most popular legends to play as well, so it is a bit wild we’re just now seeing this bug.
