Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass Released, Introduces New Character
Following the success of Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment has released the Season 1 pass for the game which brings a host of goodies and cosmetics to the game. Just like its competitors (PUBG and Fortnite) Apex Legends will give players the chance to unlock new character skins and other rewards. EA, the game’s publisher has decided to keep the price of the Battle pass in direct competition to other games.
About The Season Pass
Buying the Battle Pass will instantly unlock three special character skins for Lifeline, Wraith and Mirage. Even if players don’t purchase the Battle Pass (also called the Wild Frontier Pass), they’ll be able to earn rewards such as a Wild Frontier Legends skin and five Apex Packs. Apex packs are special goodies that are earned by a player as he levels up and progresses through the game.
The Season 1 Pass for Apex Legends features 100 tiers of rewards, similar to Fortnite. The unlockables include new weapon skins, XP boosts and attractive banner frames for different characters/legends. Players can earn up to 1000 Apex Coins (in-game currency) via levelling up the battle pass, which can be used to buy the next season’s battle pass without spending “real” money.
New Character Update
The Battle Pass is not the only thing to get delighted about. The Wild Frontier update also introduced the highly-anticipated character, Octane, to the game. The character’s abilities include passive regeneration, movement speed boost and placing a launchpad for his teammates which can propel them high up in the air. Noteworthy, Octane is not a battle pass reward, instead, users can just buy Octane using 12,000 Legend Tokens or 750 Apex Coins. However, cosmetic skins for Octane can be unlocked via the battle pass too.
Availability & Price
The Season 1 Battle Pass is priced $10 onwards in the US, whereas the pass starts from INR 700 in India. It is interesting to note that the pass doesn’t have an actual price in the game, instead, it is purchasable for 1000 Apex Coins. Users will have to purchase the aforementioned number of coins for US$ 10 or INR 700, hence the price. Players can also purchase the “levelled up” version of the battle pass, which is available for 2,800 Apex Coins and will grant instant access to 25 tiers of rewards.
