After weeks and weeks of speculation, Respawn has lifted the lid on the first season of Apex Legends. It’s called Wild Frontier and will bring the newest legend Octane as well as a bunch of new cosmetic and bonus content for those picking it up.
The battle pass is launching tomorrow and will set you back 950 Apex Coins (which is roughly $10-12). Unlike Fortnite, you’ll unlock these cosmetic items by playing the game, rather than completing specific challenges.
If you’re confused about how things will work, Respawn has detailed exactly why they’ve decided to lay out the battle pass in this way.
“Our first Battle Pass is all about letting you continue to learn and experiment with the core Apex Legends experience while earning awesome loot at the same time. You’ll notice the first version isn’t built around a complex quest system where you need to do a 720 backflip off of Watchtower Artemis and get two Wingman headshots before hitting the ground. While we think there’s really cool design space in quests and challenges for future Battle Passes, we wanted the initial version to allow our players to just play and learn the game.
All of the rewards in the Wild Frontier Battle Pass are exclusive to Season 1 and will never return to the game after the season ends (excluding Apex Packs and the content dropped in them).
We’ve added a Battle Pass progression bonus tied to playing a variety of characters, because we believe true mastery in Apex Legends means being a badass with anyone in any situation at any time. This season is about exploring the new meta and variety of team comps driven by the launch of our first new Legend, Octane.
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. In addition, we’ve included our first ever three-stage evolving Legendary Havoc weapon skin (for veterans who are looking for the new hotness), as well as Epic and Legendary Apex Packs. These rewards are all in addition the 1,000 “
