This Is How Much Money You’d Spend If You Bought Every 2022 Season Pass

Call it an investment in entertainment.

A Season Pass, or Battle Pass, is a real must when you absolutely love a game. Purchasing the premium version of a season pass is a fun way to unlock extra cosmetics and in-game currencies as you level up. As these passes increase in popularity you will find more games introduce them, especially free-to-play titles. This also means that purchasing a season pass is a great way of supporting the team behind creating your current gaming obsession.

How Much You Would’ve Spent in Total
