Respawn made it pretty clear that Apex Legends ain't no Fortnite and that their development schedule is tailored to their capacities, so to ease the wait until the next content drop, the dev launched a free PlayStation Plus Play Pack.

Apex Legends PS Plus Play Pack contains 6 items in total, two of which are character skins for Apex's medic Lifeline and Mirage, the resident bamboozler of the bunch.

Next up are two weapon skins - one for EVA-8 shotguns and another for Apex's bullet hose submachine gun, the R-99.

Last but not least are the banners, again for Lifeline and Mirage, which completes the Apex Legends PS Plus Play Pack.

Naturally, you have to be a PS Plus subscriber to take advantage of Sony's free-but-not-really-free offer, and all you need to do is head over here on PlayStation Store and pick up your free pack.

Most users are expecting much more from Respawn than just item playpacks, which is a stance so prevalent that even KFC got aboard the criticism train.

To be fair, it was so expertly handled by one of the company's programmers, that he should seriously consider doing PR for them too, and it's hard to argue with Respawn's reasoning. 

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella is not a stranger to huge studios and teams, and it seems like his intention is not to grow as fast as possible, but provide a sustainable platform for the company to grow, without running its employees ragged. 

In fact, he stressed that he doesn't want to overwork the team, adding, "There are a lot of people that are like 'hey where's the weekly updates, Fortnite does this.' And it's like, we're not set up to do that. We never intended to."

As far as Apex Legends' updates go, Respawn recently announced that the next patch will address most of the issues regarding hit registration, the fix to the slow-mo effect that plagues some matches, Fortification bug fixes for Gibraltar and Caustic as well as other changes like increased attention on the practice called piggybacking.
