Since EA and Respawn surprised the world with Apex Legends, the game has racked up 50 million players. Ever since the leaks in mid-February, people have been speculating about and clamoring for new content. After weeks of waiting, Respawn finally delivered, announcing that Season 1 will launch tomorrow at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern.

The first season of the popular battle royale, titled Wild Frontier, comes with an all-new character: Octane. The character runs on two metal legs, and his main ability, Adrenaline Junkie, lets him run faster at the cost of his health. However, he never runs out of Stims, which regenerates his health. His ultimate, Launch Pad, provides a lot of utility for the team, launching his squad-high into the air.

You can also expect Apex Legends Battle Pass to launch along with the season. For 950 Apex Coins, you can snag it, immediately unlocking exclusive skins for Lifeline, Wraith, and Mirage. Additionally, Respawn boasts more than 100 items can be earned while playing during the season, including weapon skins and banner frames.

If you don't have enough Apex Coins, the cheapest option would be buying a pack of 1,000, which costs $10. For players who want to pay more, Apex Legends will offer a Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins. For 1,850 more coins, you'll also immediately unlock your next 25 Battle Pass levels, earning you 25 season rewards right off the bat.


Outside of Octane and the Battle Pass, players can earn free rewards during the season without spending a cent. While playing Apex Legends during the season, you can unlock 18 stat trackers unique to the Wild Frontier, along with five more Apex Packs. Players can even earn a special skin for a random Legend. If you decide later in the season that you want to buy the Battle Pass, you'll retroactively earn the rewards you would have gotten if you bought it day one.

Are you excited to see the first new character in Apex Legends? Are you planning to buy the Apex Legends Battle Pass? Let us know in the comments below.

When I'm not talking about my love of Persona, I'm probably playing or writing about games. I listen to an unhealthy amount of game soundtracks. Catch me on Everything in Poderation, the Internet Culture Podcast that dives into the intersection between the internet and nerd culture.
