Apex Legends is a free-to-play game – and a bloody popular one at that! – but you do potentially need to spend in order to unlock some of its newer heroes. Savvy players, however, can save through February simply by logging in, as developer Respawn will be celebrating the title’s third anniversary with some giveaways.
Here’s the full schedule of what you can expect, as per a blog post published by EA:
- 8th February – 15th February: Feel the speed in Week 1 by permanently unlocking Octane plus Three Thematic Packs.
- 15th February – 22nd February: Get charged in Week 2 by permanently unlocking Wattson Character plus three Thematic Packs.
- 22nd February – 1st March: Take to the skies in Week 3 by permanently unlocking Valkyrie plus three Thematic Packs and one Legendary Pack.
If you already have all these Legends unlocked, then don’t worry: you'll still get the Thematic Packs and the Legendary Pack.
In other news, 8th February will mark the arrival of the release’s latest season, which includes newcomer Mad Maggie. You can check out her reveal trailer through here. Unfortunately, there’s still no word on that native PS5 client which leaked earlier in the month, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it rolled out alongside this promotion.
