The first season of Apex Legends is set to begin, but there’s already a way to get the next battle pass completely for free.

The Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass becomes available tomorrow, March 19, and is available for 950 Apex Coins.

This pricing puts it on par with the Fortnite Battle Pass, which costs 950 V-Bucks. Also like Fortnite, Apex Legends is offering a way to fully fund your future Battle Passes.

If players are able to complete all 100 tiers of the Battle Pass, they will be rewarded with enough Apex Coins to purchase the next Battle Pass when it becomes available.

This information was confirmed in a Reddit comment by JayRespawn.

Respawn EntertainmentOctane is coming with the Season 1 Battle Pass.

“Total it’s 1,000 sweet, sweet coins,” he wrote in a comment.

This will be good news for budget-minded players, as essentially you’ll only have to purchase the Battle Pass once, and then you can use the currency to keep funding future Battle Passes – assuming the pricing never changes.

The news was also confirmed in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

“You can get the Battle Pass from the in-game shop for 950 Apex Coins. Plus, you can earn enough Apex Coins through leveling the Battle Pass to purchase the next one without spending one real cent.”

On top of the 1,000 coins, players can earn a variety of weapon skins, cosmetics and much more.

The Battle Pass is a pretty good deal, and that’s even more so, considering you potentially never have to buy one ever again.

If you decide to not pick up the Battle Pass, there are also free rewards up for grabs for everyone.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
