To secure a copy of the game, interested individuals can pledge their support starting at the core tier for $87. This tier will offer a $37 discount off the planned retail price. The core tier includes the boxed copy of the game upon launch and features four legends. The legends include Bangalore, Bloodhound, Wraith, and Gibraltar. Glass Cannon Unplugged plans to introduce additional characters through future expansions.
Backers who choose to contribute to the stretch goals can access higher tiers with exciting extras. For example, the $125 Full Team tier includes extra miniatures for Pathfinder and Lifeline, additional terrain, and props. The $256 Gameplay All-in tier expands upon the Full Team tier by providing two squad expansions, card sleeves, a playing mat, and a supply minis pack. By investing in these tiers early, backers can save $54 or $113, respectively, compared to their planned retail prices.
Furthermore, backers of any tier will receive a free copy of the Loba expansion when it launches. Additionally, the backers will acquire other planned expansions featuring characters such as Caustic, Revenant, Octane, Wattson, Crypto, and Mirage. The release date for the Loba expansion has not yet been announced.
The Apex Legends board game will release in June 2024.
