The first huge update to 2019's biggest game is worth every penny
- The first major addition has arrived in "Apex Legends," the wildly popular new Battle Royale game.
- The "Wild Frontier" expansion includes the first new character, Octane, and the game's first Battle Pass - a massive set of unlockable items tied to your level.
- At $9.50, the Battle Pass is an inexpensive way to add a lot more content to an already-excellent game...especially since "Apex Legends" itself is a free download.
The first major content update to "Apex Legends" arrived this week, and it's a delight.
The "Wild Frontier" expansion includes the game's first Battle Pass and a brand new character named Octane, all for 950 Apex Coins ($9.50)."Apex Legends" is a totally free game, but this Battle Pass adds some extra goodies that don't change the core gameplay, or confer any material advantages. What you get for your money is the chance to earn items that can make you look extra-stylish while fighting your friends and foes.
The new content officially kicks off the first "season" of "Apex Legends" - and it's an excellent addition to an already excellent experience.
