It has been over a month since Apex Legends Mobile was released to the public globally. Currently there are ten playable characters and just one battle royale map that mobile gamers can enjoy within the game.
Much to the excitement of the mobile community, the battle royale title will receive its first major update named “Cold Snap”, very soon. The 1.5 update will bring a lot of winter themed accessories to the game along with a brand new Legend within mobile.
The 1.5 Cold Snap update is set to launch on June 15th 2022. Mobile gamers now should have the option to update the Respawn Entertainment game, but they can enjoy the new features from June 15th onwards.
Mobile players who update the battle royale game before June 21st 2022 will receive 5 Apex Packs for free. This reward can be redeemed from the event page named Download Bonus within your profile menus.
Apex Legends Mobile twitter account hinted the following:
“Changes incoming! Be on the lookout for the below this week:
❌leaver penalty removed in non-Ranked games
🧠more servers in NA, UK, and FR, all including a small update to improve ping
👍the first of many server optimizations
Thank you for your patience, legends ❤️”
As seen above a lot of normal quality of life changes are coming however the biggest change is with the mobile’s Battle Pass. Due to the feedback received from players in the last month, the Battle Pass will see definite improvements. Players who have already purchased the current season Pass will be able to claim the following two rewards: 50 Syndicate Gold and 1 Syndicate Pack.
Quite a few skins will be introduced once more in the battle royale game via the Battle Pass, for more details you can check below:
-Five-Star Performance Rare Skin (Lifeline)
-Fuel Tank Rare Skin (Caustic)
-Leader of the Pack Epic Skin (Bloodhound)
-Engine Coolant Epic Skin (Pathfinder)
-Electric Breeze Rare Skin (Fade)
Once players manage to complete every single level of the new Battle Pass, they will be rewarded with a total of 800 Syndicate Gold.
Now for the new legend, Loba is being added to the Apex Legends Mobile metaverse, and players will finally be able to use her passive, tactical, and ultimate abilities which even in PC/Console Apex Legends are quite good. Players who have enjoyed Apex Legends in the past are quite familiar with the Legend’s capabilities on PC/console gaming platforms, as her versatility and loot gathering is incomparable to the current characters within the mobile game.
This are the abilities and mechanics you can expect from her:
Passive Ability: Eye for Quality
Using her Jump Drive bracelet, Loba can teleport her to places that are hard to reach whenever the need to escape arises.
Tactical Ability: Burglar’s Best Friend
She can view epic and legendary loots through walls by using her tactical ability.
Ultimate Ability: Black Market Boutique
A portable device can be used that will allow her to teleport nearby loot to her inventory. This ability can be shared by teammates as well as enemies (up to a maximum of two items).
All of these changes will definitely make the game better, as there is definite proof of this mechanics working well within PC/Console Apex Legends. Hopefully this is the start of many more updates to come to the game.
