Apex Legends Players REALLY Don’t Like The New Battle Pass

With great power comes great responsibility, and with the behemoth that is Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment really does have a damn lot of responsibility to keep the game as good as it has been.

Season One of Apex Legends just launched (March 19), bringing with it the game’s first battle pass, first post-launch Legend and a tonne of hate on social media.

Turns out people really aren’t impressed with what Respawn’s offering with the battle pass, with players complaining about everything from the cost to the “hidden” terms and conditions.

The first new Legend, Octane, has been seriously hyped by players, but there’s one thing that people feel Respawn didn’t make clear – Octane is a separate purchase to the battle pass.

On Twitter, angry players have been sounding off about the move.

As for the battle pass itself, Apex fans are finding the content pretty lacklustre. One user tweeted: “i wouldn’t say i regret buying the #apexlegends battle pass, and i have even been comfortably able to spend more on it, but it’s a sh*tty battle pass and the items suck. @PlayApex please improve future battle passed significantly, and maybe even improve the current one, too.”

Another player branded Respawn as “money hungry people,” adding: “It was a matter of time. I wonder if you need to play 100 plus hours to unlock everything, so you have to spend more money to unlock if you don’t have to time. Pieces of sh*t.”

Season One has only just begun, and there’s a lot of updates supposedly coming. Maybe Respawn can fix the battle pass…?
