Following heavy criticism of the monetisation surrounding the new Final Fantasy VII Rebirth event in Apex Legends, EA has made adjustments so that getting the full set of items on offer should cost considerably less. Previously, the item packs were going to cost 1,000 Apex Coins (around $10) each, meaning you'd need to cough up $360 to get the full set of 36 trinkets. Now, roughly half of those packs have dropped in price by 90 per cent.
For the first 15 item packs you buy, you will be charged 100 Apex Coins. Then, once you own 16 or more items from the event, the cost of each pack goes back up to 1,000 Apex Coins. You're still looking at spending more than $200 if you want to own everything — including the special One-Winged Angel Deathbox — but this is a slightly more reasonable ask.
Most players will be able to get their hands on a good selection of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth items before stopping as the price returns to where it was originally set. You can also opt for a four-pack bundle at 1,600 Apex Coins, which guarantees you a legendary or iconic item.
