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 fixes annoying Rampart & Treasure Pack bugs in Dec 1 patch

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
