The first Apex Legends Battle Pass will also go live tomorrow. The basic Battle Pass will set you back 950 Apex Coins, which should only cost $10 USD. Every single level earned while playing this season will unlock new cosmetic rewards and currency. The Battle Pass Bundle will instantly unlock the first 25 reward tiers, and can be purchased for 2,800 Apex Coins. That’s $30 USD.
Upon purchasing either Battle Pass, you’ll instantly unlock the Lifeline Revolutionary skin, the Wraith Survivor skin, and the Mirage Outlaw skin. All three can be seen in the header image at the top of this article.
Respawn also revealed that all players, even those of you who do not purchase the Battle Pass, have new rewards to look forward to and unlock. All Season 1 players are eligible to earn a Wild Frontier Legend skin, five Apex Packs, and 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers.
Here’s a brief FAQ posted to the official Apex Legends update page:
How do I buy the Battle Pass?
“The Battle Pass can only be purchased in the in-game store using Apex Coins. Launch Apex Legends, navigate to the Battle Pass tab, and purchase the Battle Pass from there. If you need to purchase Apex Coins, you can do that in the store, too.”
What happens if I buy my Battle Pass late in the season?
“You’ll receive all the rewards up to your Battle Pass level (which is your current level for the season) retroactively! For example, if you’re on level 20 for the season when you buy the Battle Pass, you’ll unlock all rewards for every level up to 20, plus three special Battle Pass skins.
“If you buy the Battle Pass Bundle, you’ll get the rewards for 25 levels in addition to the levels you’ve already reached. So, if you’re on level 20 for the season when you buy the Battle Pass Bundle, you’ll get all the rewards through level 45 and the three special Battle Pass skins.”
Can I keep leveling my Season 1 Battle Pass after the season ends?
“No, the rewards available in the Season 1 Battle Pass can only be earned until the season is over. After it ends, you won’t be able to earn new Wild Frontier content.”
Do I keep my stuff after the season ends?
“Yes! You keep every Battle Pass reward you’ve unlocked after the season is over.”
What if I don’t buy the Battle Pass? Can I still earn rewards for free?
“Yes. Even if you don’t purchase the Battle Pass, you can still earn the following items for free:
- 1 Wild Frontier Legend skin
- 5 Apex Packs
- 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers”
If I buy the Battle Pass, can I also get the free rewards?
“Yes! Everyone can earn the free rewards during Season 1.”
