Despite the highly competitive nature of the battle royale genre, Apex Legends had no problem making a name for itself. The game exploded onto the scene and offered a fast paced FPS experience that’s kept plenty of players engaged since.
Developer Respawn Entertainment continues to build on the success of the title with regular updates. We’ve seen new Legends, cosmetics, map changes, and features like crossplay come about in addition to competitive support and constant gameplay tuning. All in all, it’s fair to call it a success. It’s no surprise to find out that a special edition of Apex Legends called the Champion Edition is coming soon.
A “valuable” proposition
Starting with Season 7, the Champion Edition will go on sale for $39.99 USD and offer great incentives for new players to jump in. It will unlock all of the existing Legends plus the mysterious character coming next season. In addition to that, there will be a total of seven exclusive legendary items such as character and weapon skins. EA notes these are worth a $100 USD value if compared to similarly priced items in the in-game shop, so I guess you should be wowed.
To further sweeten the pot, customers will receive 1,000 Apex coins for additional cosmetics. That’s actually pretty decent though, because you can buy the battle pass with those coins and have a few still to spare.
It’s hard to get that excited about throwing money to EA. However despite its corporate overlords, Respawn Entertainment is still a fantastic developer. Apex Legends is also a fantastic game, so if you want to support it, the Champion Edition is a great way to do so while getting plenty back. It also could also make a great gift for any one of your friends.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play game you can download via the Origin client. It also should arrive on Steam sometime soon. You can find the full press release for the Apex Legends Champion Edition bundle on EA’s blog.
