After a seemingly interminable wait for pestering fans – seriously? The game’s only been out for 6/7 weeks, guys – Respawn have announced that Apex Legends Season 1 is launching tomorrow, 19th March at 6PM UK time. The season brings exactly what you’d expect, with new unlock streams, more cosmetics, and as promised (and leaked), a new character called Octane.

Octavio “Octane” Silva has abilities all around speed and high-paced engagement. Adrenaline Junkie lets him trade health for speed, while Stim health regeneration passively heals him, feeding his ability. His Launch Pad ultimate lets the squad launch up into the air with ease.
The Wild Frontier Battle Pass can be bought in-game for 950 Apex Coins – 1000 coins costs $9.99/£7.99 – with over 100 rewards like weapon skins, banner frames, XP boosts, and more. One reward is more Apex Coins, and if you level up enough, you’ll be able to afford the next Battle Pass for free. Buying the Battle Pass will get you three Wild Frontier-themed skins, and if you want to skip through the first 25 levels and their rewards, you can buy the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins.
Check out the full trail of rewards on EA’s website. Curiously, one element of the Battle Pass progression is that you earn a bonus for playing as multiple characters.
Without the Battle Pass, you can earn a new Wild Frontier legendary skin, 5 Apex Packs and 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers.
