Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass begins tomorrow

Electronic Arts has confirmed that Apex Legends Season 1,

Wild Frontier, will go live at 10 am PT/1 pm ET tomorrow, March 19, and has also (finally) dropped the details on the Season 1 Battle Pass.

The Battle Pass will go for 950 Apex coins on its own—about $10—or in a Battle Pass Bundle for 2800 Apex coins that catapults you to level 25 from the start. Purchasing the pass will immediately unlock the Lifelife Revolutionary, Wraith Survivor, and Mirage Outlaw skins, and as pass owners advance in levels through the season they'll earn rewards including player and weapon skins, trackers, and badges. It doesn't appear that weekly challenges are a part of the deal. More than 100 items are up for grabs, and everything earned during the first season is yours to keep.

The pass can be purchased at any time during the first season, and rewards will automatically unlock up to your current seasonal level, so you won't miss out on anything if you're late to the party. The Battle Pass Bundle will unlock the rewards for 25 levels beyond your current level, so if you're on level 20 when you purchase it, for instance, you'll be given all the rewards up to level 45.

All players, with or without the Battle Pass, can earn a Wild Frontier character skin, five Apex Packs, and 18 Wild Frontier stat tracks simply by playing during season 1, and the Battle Pass reward items can also be earned by players who don't have the pass, just at a far slower pace. (Remember, Apex Packs stop dropping at every level once you hit level 20, so you're probably not going to grind all of this stuff out without help.)

EA confirmed in a more in-depth blog post that season 1 loot will not be tied to in-game challenges like, say, doing "a 720 backflip off of Watchtower Artemis and get two Wingman headshots before hitting the ground." That sort of thing may be incorporated into future Battle Passes, but for season 1 it wants to keep the focus on playing and learning the game.

Players can earn a Battle Pass progression bonus, however, by playing a variety of different characters, rather than focusing on one or two, "because we believe true mastery in Apex Legends means being a badass with anyone in any situation at any time," lead product manager Lee Horn wrote.

"We’ve tried to create a Battle Pass where first-time spenders can get a strong base of weapon and character cosmetics to fill out their initial collection at a deep discount. In addition, we’ve included our first ever three-stage evolving Legendary Havoc weapon skin (for veterans who are looking for the new hotness), as well as Epic and Legendary Apex Packs."

Horn ran down the full list of rewards available in the Battle Pass in a post on Reddit:

1000 Apex Coins (these can be put toward the next Battle Pass if you like)
Apex's first ever 3-stage Evolving Legendary Weapon Skin (Havoc)
Exclusive Epic PDW weapon skin
Legendary Apex Pack with Guaranteed 1+ Legendary
Epic Apex Pack with Guaranteed 1+ Epic
5 standard Apex Packs
3 Legend skins
20 exclusive rare weapon skins
9 exclusive banner frames
9 exclusive intro quips
9 exclusive seasonal stat trackers
Exclusive badges, Battle Pass boosts and more!
He also clarified in a separate post that player and Battle Pass levels "are completely independent and don't impact each other." Battle Pass level will reset at the end of each season, but the player level will not.

Apex Legends dataminers uncover a survival mode and hover tanks

Diligent dataminers continue to root out all of Apex Legends' secrets. Along with the possibility of solo and duo modes, it looks like a survival mode could also be on the horizon.

ApexDBR discovered references to both survival and team deathmatch modes in Apex Legends' files. At the moment, the game only contains a squad mode and single—albeit massive—map.

RealApexLeaks did a bit more digging and uncovered additional details shared with GamingIntel. According to the files, the survival mode will feature an NPC crowd that reacts to players by cheering them on, giving standing ovations and booing. Commentary will accompany the matches, too, judging the performance of the survivors. I find the game stressful enough without an audience, honestly, so I think a few boos and jeers would finally break me.

A list of names also appears, apparently not playable characters. They're references to host NPCs, but it's not clear what impact choosing one will have on the match. It looks like kill replays will play during survival mode, too, letting you relive your murder.

What players will actually have to do during the mode is still a mystery, although at one point it may involve dealing with a hover tank. Respawn isn't talking about new modes yet, even in the roadmap. Judging by how Apex Legends launched, however, stealth launching new features or modes seems plausible.

Respawn confirmed new Legends are coming, and some references to them may have been dug up. The rumoured Legends are Octane and Wattson, while Tesla trap and stim could refer to their abilities. Not that any of this matters to me, a person who only plays Gibraltar for some reason.

Twitch Legends: Ninja's Team Wins First Apex Legends Tournament

Ninja, 2018's video game influencer of the year and Fortnite champion, just added another major victory to his resume. Joining NRG Esports players Dizzy and KingRichard for the first Twitch Rivals Apex Legends tournament, the squad of three (calling themselves "Kings Canyon" after the game's map title) squeezed out an impressive comeback victory, taking the North America win by just one point.

Apex Legends is just over a week old and is already being hailed as the best battle royale out there, one of the best free-to-play games ever released, and the game that saved Electronic Arts latest financials. Apex Legends is even outpacing Fortnite's growth rate when it went first went free-to-play, racking up over 25 million players already.

During its launch days, publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment sponsored most top streamers to play the game as "Apex Partners," and as the hype continued throughout its first week, so to did it build towards the first Twitch-sponsored Apex Legends tournament as part of the Twitch Rivals series. The two-part competition began today, February 12, 2019 at at 2PM PT and ran for four hours, where players played as many games as possible in a four-hour time period.

Twitch Rivals - Apex Legends rules:

Each event features 16 three-player squads. They’ll compete to earn the most points, with five points awarded for each match victory and one point awarded for each kill.

The next tournament takes place at he same time next week on February 19th. While Ninja is the big name, it was KingRichard who got Ninja on the team, and Dizzy who carried the team to victory. He ran solo across the map playing Wraith, winning countless 1v3s, making it look easy. Dizzy had the most kills of the tournament, and the best part... it was his very first tournament. As for Ninja, he remains the battle royale combatant to team with.
