E3 2019: Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass Will Be Challenge-Based, Like Fortnite

7:30 pm, June 8, 2019
Following the Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order gameplay reveal, developer Respawn shared the first details about the next season of Apex Legends during Saturday's EA Play event. Season 2 of the free-to-play battle royale game is dubbed Battle Charge, and it'll introduce a new weapon, character, and another Battle Pass--and this time, it'll work more like Fortnite's. During the panel, Apex Legends executive producer Drew McCoy revealed that the Season 2 Battle Pass will be challenge-based, as is the case with Fortnite.

Following the Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order gameplay reveal, developer Respawn shared the first details about the next season of Apex Legends during Saturday's EA Play event. Season 2 of the free-to-play battle royale game is dubbed Battle Charge, and it'll introduce a new weapon, character, and another Battle Pass--and this time, it'll work more like Fortnite's.

During the panel, Apex Legends executive producer Drew McCoy revealed that the Season 2 Battle Pass will be challenge-based, as is the case with Fortnite. Season 1's Battle Pass was notably XP-based, which many players felt resulted in a slow grind. This time, however, there will be daily and weekly challenges, and they'll stack, so you'll be able to complete them throughout the season. As a result, McCoy says players will be able to level their Battle Pass up much faster this season.

That isn't the only change being made to the Battle Pass for Season 2. This time around, Respawn has removed all of the badges and stat trackers that were "taking up space" in the Battle Pass and replaced them with three "entirely new content types." Respawn says there will also be "a lot more" skins in the Battle Pass, and players will be able to earn enough crafting metals to craft a Legendary weapon of their choosing by the time they reach level 100.

Season 2 of Apex Legends kicks off on July 2. As previously mentioned, the new season will also introduce another playable Legend, Wattson--a scientific genius and electrical engineer who can place fences down in the field. Respawn says a ranked mode is also coming to the game next season, as well as four new Legendary skins.
