The Teamfight Tactics mid-set expansion is nearly upon us and Riot Games has provided the community not only with 14 new champions, three never-before-scene traits, and a myriad of other changes but a revamped Galaxies Pass and Galaxies Pass+ for players who want to earn exclusive rewards as they play.
According to information provided by Riot, the mid-set expansion's pass is going to provide more experience for those that play the game more consistently as opposed to having to grind all of the time.
Now on to the specifics.
How does it work?
As soon as patch 10.12 kicks off, players will be able to start earning rewards towards their Galaxies II Pass, which is free to all and just requires playing. For those who want exclusive rewards such as Little Legends, arenas and booms, the Galaxies II Pass+ will be available for purchase at 1295 RP or $9.99. Progress for the pass itself will begin on June 10 at 11 a.m. PT. For players who choose to play the normal version of the pass then purchase the Pass+, they will receive all of the rewards they previously would've unlocked, allowing players to wait until they know what rewards they'd receive before buying it.
According to Riot, how experience is earned within the Galaxies II Pass is being reworked as well:
You’ll continue to earn rewards by gaining XP and completing TFT missions. We found that most of you either played a ton of TFT and finished the pass with quite a bit of time to spare, or played consistently but not often enough to get to the end of the pass. So, we're creating a weekly mission that gives you 400 XP for playing a single game. We expect that this change will help players advance another 4-5 levels throughout the course of the pass, but increase the number of games required to complete the pass for those that play a ton of TFT.
What can I unlock?
As exciting as the sound of a pass that unlocks rewards is, what's inside is what matters to players when making a decision with their wallets.
Throughout the Galaxy II Pass and Pass+, players can earn the following exclusive goodies:
If where you're playing doesn't tickle your fancy and who you're playing as is your jam, there are three new little legends tied into the pass that have a bit of lore tied to them as well, according to Riot Games.
The Bellswayer is a proud, celestial creature native to the Greenfang Mountains whose beautiful chimes from their bell inspire and compel other sprites to follow and serve. Though they startle easily, bellswayers are just as quick to resume a composed and regal posture.
This mischievous prankster from the Glade enjoys playing tricks on hapless mortals who have the misfortune of stumbling upon them. Sweet one moment and deadly the next, Nixie’s pranks take on a life of their own.
The embodiment of wispy firelight, the Lightcharger can be seen soaring across the skies of Targon as dusk turns to night. It bathes in the sun’s most radiant glow, galloping nobly from east to west and protecting the world from the eternal darkness.
The last day to earn progress on the TFT Galaxies II Pass+ is September 14th, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Get your games in before then if you wanna flex on your friends with all the latest Galaxies loot.
