After the mysterious jump pads starting appearing around the canyon. Respawn have finally revealed details on Apex Legends first season, Wild Frontier which launches today! The F2P battle royale has seen huge success since its surprise launch early last month, amassing over 50 million unique players.
Over on their official website, EA has shared more details on the upcoming battle pass. Firstly, the battle pass has to be purchased using Apex Legends in-game premium currency, Apex Coins. You can get a standard pass for 950 coins or a battle pass bundle for 2800 coins which immediately starts you at level 25.
I'm not super familiar with Fortnite's battle pass system but it seems largely the same. There are two separate tiers of unlockable goodies you'll gain as you play the game but one tier is only accessible if you purchase the battle pass. It's about the same right? EA has also promised 1 Wild Frontier Legend skin, 5 Apex Packs and 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers to everyone even if you don't purchase the battle pass.
Finally, we've got information on Octane. The newest playable legend.
After blowing his legs off in a record-breaking gauntlet speed-run, Octavio “Octane” Silva is diving into the Apex Games with metal legs and even bigger ambitions. He’s searching for the ultimate adrenaline rush by using his death-defying moves to become an Apex Champion.
His Adrenaline Junkie ability lets him trade health for speed, and an endless supply of Stim health regeneration means he’s always ready for action. His Launch Pad Ultimate Ability lets his squad fly through the air with the greatest of ease. Jump into Apex Legends and play Octane today!
Apex Legends Season 1, Wild Frontier begins tomorrow, 10 am Pacific. (19th March, 2019)
