Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends will be getting its first Battle Pass tomorrow with the start of the first season announced by EA today. Apex Legends has been growing rapidly since its launch a month earlier. Dubbed as Wild Frontier, the first season of the game will come similar to Fortnite battle pass costing at $9.50 for three months including a new character into the game called Octane.
Fortnite introduced the battle pass system in fall 2017 to its game and every other battle royale game such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has adopted that where a player pays a small fee to play in the season which lasts for three months which provides in-game rewards and special events.
The similar process as Fortnite has been followed by Apex Legends team which means that user will purchase the normal battle pass for 950 Apex coins, or $9.50 and a special battle pass for $28 which will unlock the first 25 tiers straight away. Players who don’t buy the battle pass also get in-game rewards including five free Apex packs, one legendary skin appears to be the new Octane legend and 18 stat-tracker customization options for your in-game banner.
The progression in Apex Legends will be on the basis of experience points not on the challenges as we see in Fortnite and PUBG, more information over the battle pass progression will be announced after the launch of first season.
