Respawn announced today that Apex Legends, the hottest Battle Royale on the market right now, will be beginning its first Season this Wednesday. They have officially titled it “Season 1 – Wild Frontier” indicating that there may be a western theme surrounding the new content. Let’s break down those announcements.
The biggest addition in Apex Legends Season 1 is the Battle Pass. Taking a page out of rival game Fortnite’s book, Apex Legends Battle Pass will consist of 100 tiers of unlockable items. Each level you gain progresses your Battle Pass, and earns you new character skins, weapon skins, Apex Coins (in-game premium currency), Apex Packs, banners, stat trackers, and more!
The Battle Pass can be purchased in-game for 950 Apex Coins (roughly $10) and will immediately get you the Lifeline Revolutionary skin, the Wraith Survivor skin, and the Mirage Outlaw skin. If you want to get a head start on everybody, you can purchase the Battle Pass Bundle for 2800 Apex Coins (roughly $30) which unlocks the first 25 levels of content from the Season 1 Battle Pass. For players opting out of the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass, there are still plenty of free rewards to be earned. As you level up throughout the Season, you’ll earn one Wild Frontier Legend Skin, five Apex Packs and 18 Wild Frontier Stat Trackers.
Another big addition to Apex Legends Season 1 is the first new Legend to join the roster–Octane. So far, little is known of Octane, other than his official concept art on the website. Sony revealed some additional information on the Official PlayStation Blog shedding some light on what to expect for Octane’s moveset. His Adrenaline Junkie ability will allow him to trade health for speed. He will also be able to heal back up with his endless supply of Stim health. As for his Ultimate Ability, Launch Pad, we saw a preview in-game when Respawn quietly deployed them in various parts of the map late last week. Octane will be available to purchase tomorrow for 750 Apex Coins or 12,000 Legend Tokens (earned in-game for leveling up), just
