Yesterday evening, Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts released details to new changes now available in Apex Legends. The biggest change being the Player Progression system has been given a slight overhaul. We have the basic details for you below, but there's a highly detailed examination on their blog. On top of that and those updates, they've also dropped new holiday items into the Apex Legends shop, which included hoodies, Octane t-shirts, travel mugs, and more. Ju8st in case you feel like shopping for some game merch before Christmas rolls around.
Player Progression – Starting today, the player level cap will be increased from 100 to 500 giving players the ability to earn 199 Apex Packs as they progress to the highest level. The new progression system also changes the rate at which players level up to level 100, streamlining the new player experience. Players under level 100 as well as those that have been at the level cap will be awarded Apex Packs retroactively according to the new progression system and level cap. Players will also earn a new badge every 10 levels from levels 110-500.
Gun Charms – Players will also be able to collect 36 new Gun Charms to customize their favorite weapons available through Apex Packs at Epic and Legendary tiers. Unique Player Level Gun Charms inspired by the new level badges can be earned by players at levels 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500.
Celebrating the Launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – Players can now unlock a special BD-1 inspired skin for Pathfinder, called BP-1, by simply logging into Apex Legends. For more information, visit the blog here.
