Apex Legends, the surprise battle royale game from Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts, has been taking the gaming world by storm. This wildly popular new game just got a little bit more exciting, with the release of the first-ever battle pass. The Apex Legends season 1 battle pass is called Wild Frontier and will be live later today.
- The standard Apex Legends season 1 battle pass will cost 950 Apex coins (the in-game currency).
- The Battle Pass Bundle, which sets players back 2800 Apex coins, lets players unlock their next 25 levels instantly.
The battle pass options will be available in the in-game store, through the Battle Pass tab and can be bought any time during the season 1.
The battle pass from Apex Legends is similar to the battle passes available for Fortnite, which is currently in its season 8 of battle passes. With the Wild Frontier Battle Pass in Apex Legends, every level you gain levels up your Battle Pass and unlocks exclusive rewards. Basically, a battle pass lets players unlock cosmetics which would usually only be available through play. In this Wild Frontier battle pass for Apex Legends, players will be able to earn up to 100 unique items, which includes exclusive skins and weapons. Unlike Fortnite, the Apex Legends season 1 battle pass doesn’t currently make mention of events to speed up your progress. Respawn explained that progression of the 100 tiers will be based on players’ experience points, and not through special events or challenges.
There are even some rewards for players who choose not to buy an Apex Legends season 1 battle pass.
- 1 Wild Frontier Legend skin;
- 5 Apex Packs; and
- 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers.
