Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass Won’t Have Challenges

Respawn Entertainment has finally dated and revealed more details about the Season 1 Battle Pass for Apex Legends. Kicking off “Wild Frontier”, the Battle Pass costs 950 Apex Coins (or $10) and consists of 100 levels with weapon skins, new voice lines, stat trackers, and much more to unlock. You won’t, however, be completing challenges for Battle Stars, a la Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Why is that? According to the developer, it wants players to try out different Legends from the base roster and learn the game. Challenges and quests may be added in forthcoming Battle Passes though. “You’ll notice the first version isn’t built around a complex quest system where you need to do a 720 backflip off of Watchtower Artemis and get two Wingman headshots before hitting the ground,” the devs wrote in the update. “While we think there’s really cool design space in quests and challenges for future Battle Passes, we wanted the initial version to allow our players to just play and learn the game.”

Wild Frontier also marks the release of Octane, the newest Legend to join the roster. Octane’s abilities include deploying a jump pad for players to get some major air – perfect for sudden getaways (or for turning you into a massive target). The new Legend isn’t available with the Battle Pass and must be purchased separately for 12,000 Tokens (or 750 Apex Coins).

The Season 1 Battle Pass will be releasing at 10 AM PST today. Nearly everything earned from the Battle Pass is exclusive to Season 1, so if there’s something you like, make sure to pick it up. Respawn promises more “improvements, updates and tweaks” in future Battle Passes, while also teasing “a lot of cool ideas in the works.” Stay tuned for more information in the meantime.
