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.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 update time

The update is expected to go live at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM GMT. There’s no patch to come with it, so there won’t be any big downloads to worry about.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

On November 24, Respawn Entertainment revealed a brand new trailer for the event.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on. The trailer showed off nine in total, from what we could see.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop from December 1, seen below.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

On the event, they said in a blog post: “This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.

Respawn Hover Tanks

In the trailer, new Respawn Hover Tanks could also be seen, seen below.

These will follow along with the train, and your team will respawn and jump from these back down into the action at the start of each round – unless you won the previous round, in which case, you’ll start on the train.
