PlayStation Plus members can once again get their hands on a new Apex Legends PS Plus cosmetics pack. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

For the past few seasons, Apex Legends players with a PlayStation Plus membership have been able to benefit by getting rewards in the way of free skins for different characters as well as cosmetics for their player card and weapons.

With Season 6 well underway, players can once again benefit with free cosmetics. Sadly they’re not for the newly released Rampart. Instead, they’re for both Lifeline and Revenant. 

So, here’s what you need to do to get your hands on the free rewards.

How to claim Apex Legends PS Plus play pack

The new pack is all about Lifeline and Revenant, with each character getting a new skin – and unsurprisingly, it’s a shade of blue. Though, they’re not exactly the deep blue skins that players have come to know from the PS Plus packs.

On top of those, there is also a new banner for both Lifeline and Revenant – again, both blue – as well as weapon skins for both the Wingman and Devotion. 

If you want to get your hands on them, as previously noted, you must be a PS Plus member. If you tick that box, simply head to the PlayStation store, find Apex Legends, and claim the free bundle for yourself.

  1. Head to the PlayStation Store
  2. Search in Apex Legends and go to the game’s page
  3. Scroll down to add-ons and look for Apex Legends™: PlayStation®Plus Play Pack
  4. Add to basket and then download!

Once the download is complete, you’ll be able to find the new cosmetics in your inventory only a few moments later, so be sure to try them out. 

As of writing, there is no date attached to the pack for when it will go away, so it’s not a case of act fast or miss out right now. But, it’s better to be safe than sorry, so make sure you claim the pack as soon as possible.

Apex Legends leaks reveal ‘Arena’ game mode finally on the way

Respawn could finally be adding a new “Arena” game mode to Apex Legends as soon as Season 7, according to new datamined code added to the backend of the battle royale’s main menu in the recent Aftermarket update.

The datamined code in question details a new “Arena” mode, accessible through the Apex Legends main menu. These code strings, shared by Shrugtal on Oct. 13, seem to be linked to the battle royale’s playlist UI (user interface) in the loading lobby.

“Code was added with the 6.1 patch to support UI slots on the “Play” Menu for a new “Arena” mode,” Shrugtal confirmed.

Right now, the string for “arenas_mode” is set to “false,” suggesting at some point in the future that option will be flicked on. There’s also an “if(DEV)” string in there too; meaning playtesters may already have their hands on the new mode.

The question we’re left with in regards to the “Arena” mode is; what is it?

Shrugtal seems to offer up a few answers, which we here at Dexerto are inclined to agree with. If Apex Legends really is adding a ‘Team Deathmatch’ style playlist, it won’t be exactly like the Titanfall 2 playlists of old, we can assume.

Instead, it may be some variant of the new Flashpoint limited-time mode which debuted in the Aftermarket update.

Shrugtal theorized⁠—and we should mention these were just suggestions, not more leaks⁠—it could be a “smaller squads mode”. It may also have some “Flashpoint-style healing” thrown into the “Arena” mix as well, to replace respawn stations.

Skulltown to return in “Arena” playlist?

If Apex Legends really is adding an “Arena” playlist in the next few seasons, the battle royale is going to, of course, need some smaller maps to host the game mode on.

One perfect option is Skulltown, which the developers have admitted they do want to bring back in one form or another. The tight street area would be perfect for a fast-paced, smaller squads-focused Arena game mode, if Respawn went that way.

Other good areas from across Kings Canyon and World’s Edge include Capitol City, which was destroyed in Season 4, or Apex’s ever-popular Sorting Factory. Slum Lakes, Market, The Train Yard, and more are also solid options for smaller maps.

Considering this leak is only a small main menu UI update, however, there’s no clues to what the potential “Arena” game mode may actually look like. Right now, we’ll have to wait and see!

As for when it could be released, that’s got a big question mark slapped on it, for now. It’s still in testing, so Season 7 is the earliest it could arrive. Season 8 may even be a more realistic prediction though, considering development time.

For now, sit tight Apex Legends fans; an “Arena” mode is finally on the way!
