The launch of Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor also means that PS4 players will be reaping rewards of the new Play Pack that comes with exclusive skins and other cosmetic items.

Sony and Respawn have previously released packs with skins for Legends like Wattson and Octane, but they’re now going to give two new characters a splash of that PlayStation blue for the new Play Pack.

While there isn’t anything for Loba, the newest character in Apex Legends, the qualifying accounts will find six new pieces of content they can add to their collection the moment they claim the free rewards.

How to claim the Apex Legends PS Plus Play Packs

The next batch of free PlayStation gear for Apex Legends is here.

Like it says in the name of the listing, these items are exclusive for PlayStation Plus players. This pack will be free of charge as long as people have an active PS Plus membership while trying to claim it.

Picking up your free skins and banners is as easy as going to the PlayStation Store page for the ‘Apex Legends: PlayStation Plus Play Pack’ and claiming it. As soon as you do that, they’ll be added to your game the next time you open it up.

Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor is bringing a lot of new skins.

The bundle contains two of each Legends skins, weapon cosmetics, and banners, packing in a total of six items for no charge. There are two PlayStation-blue skins for Gibraltar and Crypto as well as banners for each, in addition to two new designs for the R-301 and Mastiff.

Gibraltar and Crypto’s skins give them a light hue of blue with bursts of white patches across their pattern. The banners for them will also give them a healthy coat of PlayStation’s color scheme.

This will be Gibby’s second skin to come out of a Play Pack. A deep blue skin for him and Bloodhound came out around the same time the battle royale first launched.

While the items in that first pack were overtly PS-centric designs, the following free bundles revolve around the general blue hue of the brand console.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
