The Battle Pass, which costs 950 Apex Coins will unlock new items with each level up while Wild Frontier is live.

Call of Duty: Mobile Announced
Revealed at this week’s Game Developer Conference, the game has been confirmed as being in development.
The game will include typical Call of Duty features such as maps, weapons and characters.
There will also be classic game modes such as Team Death-match, Search and Destroy and Free for All, from traditional Call of Duty games in the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series of games.

The game is set to be “the definitive, first-person action experience in a new mobile title with incredible graphics and visceral Call of Duty gameplay,” – Chris Plummer, Vice President of Activision.
Call of Duty Mobile is currently open for a Summer BETA test registration and the game will launch some time later in the year for iOS and Android.
Halo Reach PC Details Revealed
The port of Halo Reach which is coming as part of the recently announced Master Chief Collection for PC is bringing back customization of playable characters.
Customization includes Mix and Match Armor in the same way as the Xbox 360 version of the game.
However, how these items will be earned is unclear, apart from confirmation that loot boxes will not be included. Other confirmed features include:
- 4K and HDR
- Uncapped Frame Rates
- Various Aspect Ratios
- Anti Cheat Software
- Windows and Steam Cross Play
Not much else has been detailed and it doesn’t appear that a lot will be added to the game in terms of content, rather the game is being upgraded to bring it up to current generation standards.
The game is coming as part of the upcoming Master Chief Collection, however there is no reported release date as of yet.
A New Yakuza game is in Development for PS4
Sega has announced that a new game in the Yakuza series is in development for PS4, and will feature Ichiban Kasuga from Yakuza Online as the playable character.
Hardly anything is know at this point, just that the game has been confirmed and will be for PlayStation 4.
Ichiban Kasuga is a main character in 2 of the series’ titles and is a fan favorite.
The son of a prostitute and abandoned, Kasuga grew up on the mean streets and was semi raised by a local bar owner and several local homeless adults.
Following an altercation in his teen years, Kasuga was beaten and tortured by a local Yakuza gang and was later rescued by a rival Yakuza head whom he later befriended and worked for after being initiated into Yakuza.
There is no release date for this later Yakuza game but it is expected to be some time next year.
