How to claim free Apex Legends PlayStation Plus Pack – exclusive skins and more

Respawn and PlayStation have teamed up again to give PlayStation Plus owners a free Apex Legends cosmetic pack.

Respawn and PlayStation have come together again to release a brand new PlayStation Plus Play Pack for the newly released Apex Legends battle royale game. 


Similar to the pack released shortly after Apex Legends came out, the newest one features two free hero skins (this time for Mirage and Lifeline), two weapon skins and two banners.

The new cosmetic pack is currently available on the PlayStation 4 store for free, for all PlayStation Plus subscribers. 


The PlayStation Plus Play Pack contains six exclusive new cosmetic items.

Like other free to play games on the PS4 console, such as Fortnite, a PlayStation Plus subscription is not required to actually play Apex Legends, but it is needed to download and use the free Play Pack.

The PlayStation Plus Play Pack includes exclusive PlayStation themed cosmetics, for a total of 6 items for players to use in-game:

  • 2 exclusive PlayStation-themed character skins for Lifeline and Mirage.
  • 2 exclusive PlayStation-themed weapon skins for the Eva-8 and R-99.
  • 2 exclusive PlayStation-themed banners for Lifeline and Mirage.

A lack of more legend skins and weapon cosmetics are some of player’s biggest complains about Apex, so at least PlayStation players will have a few more options at least.


The pack is similar to the previous PlayStation Plus Pack given to players shortly after the release of Apex Legends in February 2019.

There is one big difference though, instead of a blue color scheme like the previous Play Pack, this one gives Lifeline and Mirage purple skins. The weapons and banners are also purple instead.

There’s no expiration date for the free packs, but players should redeem them sooner than later because eventually it will be gone.

Apex Legends Halloween Fight or Fright event: Shadow Royale, Skins, more

It’s that time of year again, when Halloween comes to gaming, and Respawn are bringing their spooky theme back to Apex Legends. The Fight or Fright event comes with a collection of scary skins, and a new twist on the last year’s Shadowfall LTM, now called Shadow Royale.

Just like Warzone’s “Haunting of Verdansk” event, the map will be getting another makeover, and players will get a chance to play as new and improved ‘Shadows’ in the Shadow Royale mode.


Last year’s Shadowfall LTM went down a treat: not only did we get to see (and hear) Revenant for the first time, it was a brilliant twist of the standard battle royale gameplay.

Also, to make sure you look the part, lots of Halloween-themed skins are coming to the store. Many of them are similar to last year’s though with fresh colors, but there’s also brand new ones for the new Legends that have been added since last October.

Shadow Royale LTM

In the Shadow Royale mode, players will play as both normal Legends, as well as drop-in as Shadows once eliminated. Shadows are now more deadly than before in some ways, as they can now wallrun and double jump (Titanfall players rejoice).

Plus, rather than just playing in Solos, there’s Shadow Squads, where teammates remain as Shadows as long as one Legend remains alive.

Then there’s Final Death, when the final Legend dies, all shadows die too. We also see Shadow Prowlers, what role they will play remains to be seen, but they’re attacking the remaining Legends in the trailer.

Wallrunning, just like Titanfall, is finally in Apex Legends – but only if you’re a Shadow.

Apex Legends Halloween skins

These skins are being dubbed ‘resurrected’, pretty much meaning they are recolors of previous skins from last year’s Fight or Fright event.

But, expect some new skins too for Legends that have been added since last Halloween – leaks have revealed a Loba skin with moving ghosts on it. You can check out a full look at the skins expected to drop here.

The Fight or Fright event runs from Thursday, October 22, to November 3, just in time for the expected launch of Season 7 on November 10.
