New Battle Pass and Season Quest
An all new Battle Pass is coming with over 100 legendary skins, Apex packs, new content and probably lots more.
For the first time ever, a Season Quest has been added called The Broken Ghost. The Broken Ghost is a season-long quest to recover 9 pieces of a mysterious artifact.
Players will need to hunt down Treasure Packs in daily Duos, Trios or Ranked matches. Treasure packs aren’t dropped at the end of a match, but taken with you beyond the lobby. One can be collected each day. These packs can contain Crafting Metals, Apex Packs, BattlePass XP or the ability to play a new weekly Hunt for the next piece of the artifact.
Starting May 19th, you’ll be entering the Kings Canyons at Night on a mission to infiltrate and retrieve a piece of the artifact, then return home safely. Parts of the map have sunken and some new areas risen in their place! Prowler enemies will be standing in your way so you’ll need to party up with a squad if you want a fair shot at success! A successful hunt will earn you an exclusive Weapon Charm and unlock the next chapter in the story.
Hunts can be replayed and will only unlock once you’ve acquired 5 Treasure packs, 9 hunts in total are planned for this season.
