What a Save The World Premium Battle Pass would entail

Content of the article: "What a Save The World Premium Battle Pass would entail"

With the Ventures Pass (and the… unimpressed feedback it's rightfully garnered), I think this is a worthwhile topic to discuss.

First: PRICE

Like BR, the pass shouldn't be some mathematical total of what's in the pass. If BR's pass sold for the cost of every skin, emote, glider, harvesting tool, and contrail within it, it would be 20K Vbucks with ease. But, it's 950. Since BR has no method to earn VBucks, the Battle Pass is Epic's way of saying "How about 10$ per season of content?" which is a fair price for a base entry point into a regularly-updated game .

STW is a different beast because some players can earn VBucks, while others cannot. So setting a VBucks price tag on it would be seen as a mild inconvenience to some, but another price of admission for others. However, putting a monetary price tag on it will feel like a stiff middle finger to those who paid a high amount of money to play this game. And incorporating a new currency would just make the game more cumbersome than it already is.

My opinion: Given that each Season (if we tie it to Ventures) is about 72 days, and players can earn 50 Vbucks per day, raise the price over the BR Season Pass to around 2500 Vbucks, but treat it like In-store llamas where people who only earn VBucks can obtain it, too. This would make it acquireable by everyone in a season, but would reward regular play. And the sum would still encourage VBuck purchases, as it would lower the amount of "disposable" VBucks earned through regular play, so even some STW players would be tempted to buy additional VBucks (and by the looks of how many Summer Zoey/Peely/Fables I'm seeing, many STW players definitely spend money). The Season Pass itself would pay back maybe half of its value through completion.

Second: CONTENT

Epic's not going to put the full effort into making 100 tiers of fresh content; that's a joke to Epic's boardroom, and not even a funny one. But there is potential for reusing assets that already exist.

The question is "what assets can be reused or repurposed?" Just a list off the top of my head:

  • Contrails can be used for hoverboard exhaust or as a small trail after hitting a jump pad
  • Every Outlander/Ninja/ Constructor that hasn't become a skin can become a skin
  • Skins can become applicable to Defenders in separate unlocks
  • STW has the benefit of persistent rewards good for all levels (PerkUp, Gold, Superchargers, Vouchers)

And I think it should be noted that, like Battle Royale, nothing in the Battle Pass should provide a genuine competitive advantage over non-paying players. So things like Superchargers don't sit super-well with me being in the Pass (but perhaps they can be handed out at free tiers).

So let's work with that. In BR's Battle Pass, I think most of us can admit that there's about 30-ish good things (Skins, emotes, harvesting tools, and soundtracks) and 70 filler items (banners, emblems, VBucks, and unlockables split between multiple levels like the Brella or Fade's skin styles to pad the numbers) STW Battle Pass fillers could look close to:

  • 1500 VBucks (15 levels)
  • 9 Super Llamas (2x Super People, 2x Super Ranged, 2x Super Melee, 3x Troll Stash, 9 levels)
  • 500 Epic Flux (Split 100 per level, 5 levels)
  • 300 Legendary Flux (Split 50/100/150, 3 levels)
  • 2000 Rare PerkUp (400 per level, 5 levels)
  • 2000 Epic PerkUp (400 per level, 5 levels)
  • 2500 Legendary PerkUp (500 per level, 5 levels)
  • 5000 Reperk (1000 per level, 5 levels)
  • 9000 Gold (500 per level, 18 levels)

And the "meat" of the Battle Pass would be something like:

  • 2 Hero Recruitment Vouchers
  • 3 Weapon recruitment Vouchers
  • 4 Defender Skins (reused from current Defender/Survivor models, or borrow skins from BR)
  • 5 Harvesting Tools? (Honestly, they could turn some melee weapons into them, like the Fishing Hook, Mr Red, Pulverizer, etc.)
  • 6 Hero Skins Vouchers (Pretty much a voucher to turn one STW Hero into a skin. Maybe make it only apply to one specific rarity + hat/no hat option + back bling per voucher. Maybe split the use of the voucher so that each one has to be used on a specific season/ class)
  • 5 Hoverboard exhausts (using contrails. Maybe let them double up as "Marker spires", letting the Contrail float into the air whenever a player marks a storm chest or 'Loot', etc. It would look like a decorated version of the skybeams visible in Encampments missions)

The other thought I would suggest would just be a "Legacy System" wherein a few levels (10-15) of the STW Season Pass would include a sample of BR's season pass content from past seasons. This would be a way to entice newer BR players who missed out on old content, but not just give them everything that they might be looking for, and it would give STW-exclusive players an opportunity to gain some BR content without forcing them to play BR.

An example of the Pass contents can be looked at below:

Third: CHALLENGES

Honestly, the challenges could very easily be tied to regular gameplay plus mini/quick-challenges composed of smaller daily challenges (Like, play one mission as a Constructor or kill 50 husks with a shotgun). I really don't think this would need to be some grand change or map-based fetch quest.

Would you purchase a STW Season Pass like this? Would you change anything about it?
