Apex Legends Season One Kicks Off Tomorrow; New Character and Battle Pass Announced


Ashley Reed writer at Electronic Arts took to the PlayStation Blog to announce and detail the highly anticipated debut of season one of Apex Legends.

Similar to the way Epic Game’s handle Fortnite’s season, Apex Legends players will begin to start earning new items, unlocks and more when season one debuts tomorrow. The battle royale genre is very competitive right now, but it seems that Respawn and EA’s latest take on the genre is paying off pretty well and with a new season beginning, this could even add more fuel to the fun!

Fans should also get excited for the brand new character who is set to join the game, Octane. He’s a speedster that could give up health for speed, has a launch pad ultimate ability, and much more.

Check out the full details on Octane down below:

Meet Octane

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 tomorrow!

In addition to the new character, Respawn went into detail talking about their new Battle Pass system. Similar to Epic Game’s Fortnite Battle Pass, players will be rewarded with new items, unlocks, and much more. Check out what they had to say about the pass down below:

The Battle Pass is your ticket to tons of rewards: once you buy the pass, every level you gain during Season 1 unlocks a Battle Pass reward, like weapon skins, banner frames, XP boosts, and more. Over 100 rewards are yours for the taking, and you have the entire season to earn them all. Plus, you’ll score three Wild Frontier-themed Legend skins immediately when you purchase the pass.

You can get the Battle Pass from the in-game shop for 950 Apex Coins. Plus, you can earn enough Apex Coins through leveling the Battle Pass to purchase the next one without spending one real cent. To level up your Battle Pass even faster, snag the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins, unlocking your next 25 Battle Pass levels (and their rewards) automatically.

Apex Legends season one is set to kick off tomorrow for all platforms. Are you excited to finally jump into the debut season of the critically acclaimed title? Let us know in the comments below!
