To celebrate the launch of Apex Legends Season 4, Respawn and EA have teamed up once again with PlayStation to offer an exclusive pack for PS Plus subscribers, including new skins for Wattson and Octane.

Since players aren’t required to have a PS Plus account to enjoy free-to-play games on the PS4, such as Apex Legends, Sony threw those who do have a subscription a bone by giving them free gear.

We’ve seen this before with both Fortnite and Apex, so it’s not all that surprising to see and has even started to become expected. However, Respawn will usually give little publicity to these kinds of deals, so many might not be aware it even exits.

Revenant has finally arrived in Apex Legends.

Luckily for players, it’s an extremely simple process to claim the pack. While there’s no definitive expiration date given, they surely won’t last forever, so make sure you claim them all at your earliest convenience.

How to get your Apex Legends Season 4 PS Plus pack

All you’ll have to do to get your hands on this free bundle is head over to the PlayStation Store and claim it. It’s completely free of charge, so once that’s done, load up Apex Legends and the contents of the pack will be in your account.

As for what’s actually included with this bundle, players can expect a couple of outfits, banners, and weapon skins, for a total of six items.

Octane and Wattson have some new skins.

Here’s a look at what you’ll be getting:

  • 2 character skins (Octane & Wattson)
  • 2 weapon skins (Havoc & P2020)
  • 2 banners (Octane & Wattson)

Unfortunately, there’s nothing available for Revenant, the new character introduced this season, so players will have to settle for skins for some of the older characters.

With Revenant arguably being the nicest looking design we’ve seen from an Apex Legends character so far, it’s a little disappointing but definitely makes sense from Respawn’s standpoint.

Octane has a new skin now!

Apex Legends Season 4 is now live for free PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Apex Legends stand by ban after LuLuLuvely reports “innocent” player

Respawn Entertainment have said they stand by a ban ruling that caused controversy in the Apex Legends community, after NRG streamer ‘LuLuLuvely’ reported a player who protested their innocence on Reddit.

After a hacker mowed down a team of streamers including Lulu, the NRG content creator immediately filed a report to Respawn’s security team member Conor ‘Hideouts’ Ford to sort the situation.

According to LuLuLuvely, her claim included a clip that clearly shows the enemy Gibraltar blatantly hacking. However, the person playing Bloodhound alongside Gibby was also ousted.

The Bloodhound, who initially disputed the decision under their Reddit account ‘KongoBoom,’ slammed Respawn and Hideouts for how the process was carried out and reaffirmed their innocence. Their post was titled “Killing streamers got me banned.”

The Bloodhound player in question claimed innocence, but Respawn’s investigation reaffirmed their ban.

“I’m season 6 / 3 predator with more than 30,000 kills you said I was cheating and in the video everything’s clear. The streamer gave my name mistakenly to the developer, in your email you said I was cheating without giving any proof,” they said.

This quickly set off the community. Accusations of a compromised system, favoritism to particular streamers, or lack of proper handling for bans were all brought up.

LuLu apologized to the player on Twitter, and said she would pass the thread along to get it attention. But, there was still anger about the supposed favoritism to address concerns of streamers, before regular players.

But after hours of community in-fighting and apparent “borderline death threats” toward LuLu, Respawn said they were standing by the decision.

“Regarding today’s Reddit thread from a banned Bloodhound (BH) player,” the studio wrote. “BH appeared to have multiple other banned accounts, BH has a history of attempting to evade bans, BH was partied with the cheating Gibraltar. We stand by the ban.”

Initially, KongoBoom expressed their frustration at the sequence of events. While the NRG streamer indicated that she had no intention of the Bloodhound being banned when making the report, the security team at Respawn have decided there was enough evidence to merit the verdict.

Following Respawn’s statement, LuLuLuvely said “Shame on those who sent borderline death threats to me because of a Reddit post from the guy claiming he was innocent.”

It should be noted that anyone can access the ‘Cheater Report’ Discord channel that’s handled by Hideouts, where people can directly submit clips and evidence of a hacker.

Uproar on this topic has devolved to speculation and accusations outside of Apex Legends and Respawn entirely, but the developers have now concluded this chapter of their long-standing battle against cheaters.
