Apex Legends season 1 start date announced, Octane release confirmed

Apex Legends Battle Pass launches tomorrow with Season 1: Wild Frontier

Respawn has announced that the first season will begin tomorrow, March 19, at 10 AM Pacific.

The battle pass is named Wild Frontier and looks themed around the rugged outdoors, with the new Legend skins mainly in earthy greens and browns (see featured image). Players can purchase the Battle Pass for 950 Apex Coins. Like other Battle Pass style content drops, you will then be able to level-up the Battle Pass each time you play, earning more rewards in the form of skins, icons, and more. Most of the rewards are minor stuff like poses, banners, and XP boosts, but there are some more exciting cosmetics mixed in. You'll also immediately unlock the Lifeline Revolutionary skin, the Wraith Survivor skin, and the Mirage Outlaw skin simply for buying the Battle Pass. If you don't grind away and unlock them this season, you'll just have to hope that they get filtered into the store and Apex Pack rotation afterwards. Once a player has the Battle Pass, the more they play Apex Legends means more levels up for the Pass and more exclusive season rewards. Further details on the long-term plan for "Wild Frontier" can be found over on EA's dedicated page, including the Battle Pass bundle, which will set you back a total of 2,800 Apex Coins.

In a flawless world, players would spend the initial $10 for the Battle Pass and never have to put another dime of real money into the game again. They include one Wild Frontier Legend skin, five Apex packs and 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers.

What if I don't buy the Battle Pass?

European champions Real Madrid clinch Sh6 billion deal to sign Brazilian star
Predominantly a centre-back, Militao is similarly adept at right-back and has even been known to fill midfield gaps if required. Eder may well be young, but he clearly has the talent to establish himself as a key cog in Real Madrid's defence.

And Horne's post confirms the release of the game's first new Legend, Octane, will come alongside the new season.

Yes! You keep every Battle Pass reward you've unlocked after the season is over. Launch Apex Legends, navigate to the Battle Pass tab, and purchase the Battle Pass from there.

In terms of rewards, we've tried to create a Battle Pass where first-time spenders can get a strong base of weapon and character cosmetics to fill out their initial collection at a deep discount.
