The new update does not bring a long list of changes to new content to the battle royale, however, it makes some significant changes. The changes to the Battle Pass system has been a disappointing change for most users who are now taking to social media channels like Reddit and Twitter to raise the concern with the gaming company.
Interestingly, Respawn was quick to address the issue. Explaining the reason behind the changes, Game Director responded to a Reddit user to state that it had to be done keeping in mind the best interests of the players.
He explained that the team of developers have made two changes to the Apex Legends battle pass, where the first change was made to simplify the working of the Battle Pass to allow a clear indication of a challenge’s worth. The second change was implemented to give players something to accomplish in the final month of a season by adjusting the challenges.
The Apex Legends update 1.53 is now live on platforms and can be downloaded right now. The update will take around 4 GB of space, however, it may vary based on your platform.
