From Press Release:
PRAGUE, Czech Republic – June 30th, 2021 — Bohemia Interactive is excited to release update 8.1 for Vigor, bringing along with a swath of classic content and quality-of-life enhancements. First and foremost, the long-awaited debut of Legacy season with this update, giving players access to Season 1: Preppers content. Along with this and the “Thank You Charity Pack”, new and old players can participate in a Double XP weekend that runs July 3rd – 4th.
“No matter how much experience you have in the industry, you’ll definitely hold your breath when launching a game, especially a multiplayer-only one,” says Marketing & Brand Manager Filip Šťastný. “So many players have helped us reach update 8.1 and the Legacy content is a key way for us to celebrate the new players that have joined the fight along the way and give them access to things they may have missed.”
Legacy seasons give players opportunities to obtain cosmetics and the Battle Passes from previous seasons. Specifically, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch players missed out on a few seasons that Xbox players were privy to. While playing Vigor, players will progress the current season of content along with one Legacy season at a time. They must own the Premium Battle Pass (discounted from the original price) for the respective season in order to progress it.
During the upcoming Double XP Weekend and beyond, new titles will identify Vigor partners and developers in the game lobby. We know this may light a fire under some players and are excited to see how these encounters go! There are also a couple special packs going live in update 8.1. The “Thank You Charity Pack” [ADD DETAILS]. First, PlayStation players who are PlayStation Plus subscribers can get an Outlander Pack for FREE. It includes the following:

Legacy + FAQ
Vigor’s Legacy seasons will be released one at a time in between each standard season. For a season to qualify as “Legacy” there has to be one full season between it and a current season. For example, with Season 8’s release, Season 6 qualifies for Legacy status.
When it comes to XP progression, players are in for quite a treat as progress between the current season and Legacy season grow simultaneously. IE: If a player has an active progression Legacy Season 1 and still has yet to complete the Battle Pass for Season 8, the XP gained will be counted toward the Battle Pass of the current season as well as the Legacy.
Since Legacy seasons are a new feature in the game, we thought it would be good to answer some of your questions that might come up during your time playing. So, we have compiled a list with FAQs for you guys.
Q: Will Legacy seasons be released in chronological order?
A: Things are not set in stone, as we always like to take our community’s opinion into account so for now it’s all very fluid.

Q: What is the cost of Legacy seasons?
A: 330 crowns
Q: Do I have to purchase the Legacy season again if I purchased a premium Battle Pass for said season in the past?

Q: What happens if I already own an item from Legacy seasons?
A: If a player already owns an item from the Legacy season, they will receive a crate with the same rarity of the item instead.
