Season 1 early patch notes, free Battle Pass rewards revealed

Season 1 early patch notes, free Battle Pass rewards revealed

Even if you just play the free content, you'll still get a new Legend Skin, 5 loot boxes, and 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers.

Well, folks, the wait is over.

EA and Respawn have announced that Apex Legends" Season 1 Battle Pass: "Wild Frontier" will be rolling out tomorrow, bringing with it a whole bunch of new content, alongside the arrival of new character Octavio "Octane' Silva. These rewards are all in addition the 1,000 Apex Coins you can earn through the Battle Pass, which you can put towards unlocking the next Battle Pass. The Battle Pass Bundle will unlock the rewards for 25 levels beyond your current level, so if you're on level 20 when you purchase it, for instance, you'll be given all the rewards up to level 45. The FAQ doesn't list how large the reward is at each level, but considering the battle pass contains 100 levels, you probably need to complete most of it-reaching level 87 or 97-to earn the necessary Apex Coins to buy the pass for Season 2.

In a ideal world, players would spend the initial $10 for the Battle Pass and never have to put another dime of real money into the game again.

Not interested in the Battle Pass at all? From the very first day of the month, players have been speculating about a potential season 1 kick-off date, and all the while, Respawn has kept its lips mostly sealed.

Will you be checking out Season 1's offerings in Apex Legends?

Rumors of Octane's existence have circulated around the internet for a while now, and today developer Respawn Entertainment confirms he's the first new character debuting in the hero-based battle royale title.

This could change as we get closer to the Battle Pass launch but right now, it appears things will be kicking off with the big update.

"As a studio, we're always striving to innovate like we did with our Ping system, the Jumpmaster, Respawning, and more", Horn said. Good camo, maybe? Those playing free can still earn some goodies this season, too.
