For those that just want to pay for a free-to-play game

Are you a fan of Apex Legends but wish you had a copy of the game to put on your shelf? Well it seems EA has a solution for you! They'll soon be launching not one but two different physical versions of the game.

There's two different physical versions, with each one focusing on a different hero. Lifeline Edition will come with the Guardian Angel skin for Lifeline, the Chooser of the Slain skin for the VK-47 Flatline assault rifle, the Winged Guardian banner, and the Angel Struck badge. The Bloodhound Edition will have The Intimidator skin for Bloodhound, the Wraith Bringer skin for the Prowler Burst PDW submachine gun, the Feeling Impish banner, and the Tormentor badge. Both editions will also come with 1000 Apex Coins, which is $10 worth, which you can use to spend on in-game items of your choice. The Banners and Badges will be exclusive to these editions, so if you're the type who feels you need to own all the cosmetics, you'll be picking up two copies.

A free to play battle royale, Apex Legends was a surprise that took the world by storm when it launched back in February by combining elements of hero shooter with the battle royale genre. For a brief period of time, it was the most popular battle royale and even managed to dethrone Fortnite from the number 1 spot. Since then Apex Legends has lost some of its popularity, but it's still among the most played battle royale games. Recently writer Max Moeller noted that, even after six months, Apex Legends was still his favorite game to play.

Apex Legends: Lifeline Edition and Apex Legends: Bloodhound Edition will both be launching on October 18th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for a price of $19.99. If you're not interested in the physical editions or goodies, the game is also free to play.
