Correct, each season will have a battle pass for purchase. But you don’t need it to get stuff.xTurdNugget205x wrote:Oh ok, I see what they're doing. So you don't have to buy the battle pass when every season comes out, and you can work on any season that comes out. I thought you would have to buy it for every individual season that came out. Or, am I seeing this wrong?Prophet Onyx wrote:I’m fine with this approach though. It means I have the ability to sit down and work on the battle pass to get what I want. And it’s never going away so I won’t feel rushed. Personally that gives the game longevity for me.FTC Anvil wrote:So it's been said that we will never be able to outright buy stuff like armors and whatnot from challenges, etc... but what about how it looks that we will be able to buy the in game currency and use that to skip ahead in the battle pass? Sure, I'm not buying the armor with real money, I'm buying the in game money to buy the levels which give me the armor.
Knowing how a lot of games that use these battle pass systems work, I'm betting earning cR in game will be just slow enough to make people want to spend real money to get it faster.
On the other side of the spectrum, if someone can only play a few hours a week they have the ability to purchase levels on the battle pass if they so choose to. But that doesn’t mean they will get a cosmetic from it that I can’t.
the caveat is that there are some stuff you can get for buying the battle pass. Basically each level has two items. One for regular and one people can also get if they bought it.
To counter that is that each seasons battle pass doesn’t go away. 7 seasons from now you can go back and purchase a battle pass if there’s something you want in it.
There is some pay element to get both items from a battle pass but then again the game is F2P so I guess they need money some how.
I got this information from the Pre Tech Preview Live Stream the 28th of July.
