It’s time to hit the ground running (and pray you don’t land in a Mozambique infested hot drop) because the inaugural season of Apex Legends has unleashed on all platforms today.
Titled Wild Frontier, Season One drops with a new battle pass, legend adjustments, a plethora of quality of life changes and introduction of the latest challenger straight out of some Mad Max post-apocalyptic wasteland, Octane.
In Apex Legends lore, this absolute madman literally blew his own legs off riding a grenade blast to win a gauntlet speed record and now looks like the love child spewed out from Fury Road and Borderlands. Octane uses breakneck speed and self-heal to stay one step ahead of the pack, he also rocks a Launch Pad Ultimate Ability that lets him take down his opponents from above like some cyborg angel of death.
Feeling dangerous? You can finally put all those Legend Tokens to good use and unlock him with 12,000 (Like Mirage and Caustic before) or if for some reason you are saving them for a rainy day (weird flex but ok) grab him for 750 Apex Coins.
So how about that Battle Pass?
You can snag it right now for 950 Apex Coins. Every level gained unlocks another level in the Battle Pass and the rewards that come with it. This season, players can earn over 100 items like Legend skins, Apex Coins (enough to purchase the next battle pass if you hit level 97), a legendary Havoc skin, and more. If you are feeling lazy, you can also get the Battle Pass Bundle, which instantly unlocks the first 25 levels instantly for 2,800 Apex Coins.
On top of the season drop. The Twitch Apex Streamer Challenge which will take place on the 30th of March and will see streamers from across the Asia Pacific region competing to be the arena champion and taking home some of the 70K USD prize pool.
See you in the ring, legends.
