EA just made a massive change to their policy regarding battle pass skins in Apex Legends.
Similar to other popular live service video games, Respawn Entertainment opted to use the “freemium” strategy to monetize Apex Legends. Meaning this battle royale game is free-to-play so there is no barrier to entry, but players can choose to purchase battle passes that reward players with skins, emotes, music packs, and more to customize their play sessions.
Previously, the battle pass skins were a limited-time commodity. In short, players had no other options to get their hands on past seasonal battle pass skins after the season runtime ends. However, recent changes made to EA’s official website suggests this all may change in the future.
Battle pass skins may return in the future
In the official blog, EA now stated that starting from season 11 and onwards battle pass-related skins might return to the digital shop in the form of a limited-time event. Apex Legends community has been asking Respawn to bring back skins from past seasonal battle passes.
While the past battle pass skins may not be available again, starting from the next season 11 players might get another chance to collect limited-time battle pass skins. The news came as a relief to many players since Apex Legends’ battle pass features some of the most sought-after reactive skin.
As these reactive battle pass skins were tied to seasons, players weren’t able to get their hands on those skins as soon as the season ends. And seems like this may change starting next season.
