Another full price game is getting multiple battle passes but Lego 2K Drive promises not to invoke any arbitrary time limits.
While season and battle passes are typical of free-to-play live service games, many full price games, like Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, have them as well, demanding your full attention lest you miss out on limited time extras.
As such, it’s easy to be apprehensive when 2K announces that its upcoming Lego racer, Lego 2K Drive, will feature at least four such battle passes – or drive passes as it calls them – lasting until next spring.
However, in a welcome change from the norm, 2K stresses that none of these drive passes will ever expire, allowing you to unlock everything at your own pace.
The drive passes do otherwise work like most other battle passes. There are 100 tiers of unlockables to progress through and there are paid-for premium versions that contain extra content.
The lack of a time limit, though, means you’re under no pressure to grind drive pass levels for hours on end to make sure you get a particular unlockable before it’s lost forever.
Plus, it means anyone who picks up the game later down the line isn’t going to have missed months of content that may never come back.
Lego 2K Drive launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC on May 19.
