Physical editions coming for… Apex Legends?

Yes, I know how bizarre that sounds. A physical edition for a free digital game? Am I taking crazy pills? It’s actually much more possible than you think since these games aren’t just free for altruism sake, they still sell wares to their users. Those wares can be bundled and packaged into a physical form. While not the traditional physical retail experience, since you don’t get a game, you can still get some cool stuff to put on your bookshelf if you are so inclined.

Apex Legends will get two physical editions starting on the 18th of October and they’re priced at $20 at retail. The two editions are for the characters Lifeline and Bloodhound and will include the following:

Apex Legends Lifeline Edition contents ($20)

  • Legendary Guardian Angel Lifeline skin.
  • Legendary Chooser of the Slain Flatline skin.
  • Exclusive Winged Guardian banner.
  • Exclusive Angel Struck badge.
  • 1,000 Apex Coins.

Apex Legends Bloodhound Edition contents ($20)

  • Legendary The Intimidator Bloodhound skin.
  • Legendary Wrath Bringer Prowler skin.
  • Exclusive Feeling Impish banner.
  • Exclusive Tormentor badge.
  • 1,000 Apex Coins.

1,000 Apex Coins amounts to about $10 which makes this purchase a little more tantalising if you were going to buy coins anyway. The skins look rather unique and they will be exclusive to these editions as well, making them collector items for those into the game.

We currently don’t know if these physical editions will be coming to South Africa since they’ve given no indication of how it’ll be distributed. However, if they do, I suppose it’s a nice little purchase you can make if you’re into the game and want a cool looking box to show your appreciation. It’s still wacky to me how something like this exists, but you know what they say. The times, they are a changin’.

I am way too tall, played way too many games and I love to write about what we love about games. In the end, I'm just being #Thabolicious
