A new, physical version of Apex Legends has just been rated by the ESRB, which rated the game, “Apex Legends Bloodhound Edition”, as a T for Teen game due to blood and violence. However, we don’t know exactly what is going to be coming in the new version just yet.
Apex Legends released early this year with no fanfare or hype at all, yet still managed to become the third titanic battle royale game alongside PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite. The game takes place in the Titanfall universe, but with no Titans, no wall-running, and no story mode.
Unfortunately the ESRB description only summarizes why the game is rated, not what it all includes, but the official Electronic Arts website gives us information on that instead. The Apex Legends Bloodhound Edition includes two Legendary skins for The Intimidator and Wrath Bringer, an exclusive banner, a badge, and a thousand Apex coins.
Along with the Bloodhound Edition, there’s also a Lifeline Edition, which is the opposite in terms of decor. Players who buy that edition will get a Guardian Angel Lifeline skin, a Chooser of the Slain Flatline skin, another banner, an exclusive badge, and another thousand Apex coins.
Both of these editions are physical, so there’s no time limit to buying them if you haven’t already picked up the game. However, hopefully there’s a way to eventually get both of those skins in the in-game store, so that players don’t have to go out and buy a game that they already own.
Both the Apex Legends Bloodhound Edition and its counterpart, the Apex Legends Bloodline Edition, are both currently available in stores now, so if you haven’t gotten started in Apex Legends already now might be a good time to play it. Otherwise, stay tuned and hopefully those currently-exclusive skins will eventually go digital.
