Apex Legends fans are eagerly awaiting the start of Season 1 and the battle pass, which will bring new Legends, weapons and loot to PC, PS4 and Xbox One players.

Apex Legends has already passed the 50 million players mark, quickly asserting itself as one of the most popular games in the world.

Now, fans of the game are excited to jump into the game’s first official season, and Respawn have finally given a release date, after over a month of speculation.

Apex Legends Season 1 is on its way.

When will Apex Legends Season 1 release?

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that Season 1: Wild Frontier will launch on Tuesday, March 19 at 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT.

Will we get new Legends in Season 1?

In a recent update from Respawn Entertainment, the developers confirmed that new Legends would be making their way to Apex Legends during Season 1. 

One of those Legends was leaked, with information regarding a new character named Octane made available, including his abilities and a description of the character, which labels him as an “adrenaline junkie.” Data miners have also found Wattson, who appears to use electricity to take down opponents, along with 10 more possible upcoming Legends.

Our first official look at Octane, coming in Season 1, was unveiled on March 18.

Will current Legends be updated for Season 1?

While excitement surrounds the new Legends, current Legends are also set to receive changes with the start of Season 1. 

In the March 6 patch notes, Respawn confirmed that if problems persist with characters then they will consider additional adjustments during Season 1. 

They also noted that significant updates to hitboxes will be made – specifically to Caustic, Pathfinder and Gibraltar – as Season 1 releases, to ensure that there are no major bugs with the changes. 

Game files found by data miners also found a file relating to the battle pass with ‘Character skins’, so presumably there will be new outfits.

Will Apex Legends have a Battle Pass for Season 1?

Much like Fortnite, the introduction of the first season of Apex Legends brings with it a Battle Pass. Players will be able to purchase the pass, and then rank up through the tiers to unlock seasonal cosmetic items that can be used on your characters, along with Apex Packs.

Everything we know about the Apex Legends battle pass from leaks.

Players are eager to get their hands on the battle pass.

Will there be new weapons or loot in Apex Legends Season 1?

Yes, players will be able to get their hands on brand new weapons when Season 1 kicks off. Two weapons have previously been leaked, the Havoc rifle and the L-STAR LMG.

Players have already gotten their hands on the Havoc, which released back on February 20, but the L-STAR has still to make an appearance in the game. It’s likely that it will be included in the Season 1 update for the game.

There will also be new loot for players to pick up and find, though there is currently no information available about what we may see. 

The L-STAR will be released in Season 1.

How long will Season 1 last?

Thanks to the Apex Legends 2019 roadmap , we know that Season 2 is set to kick off in June, so it seems that the Season will last for around 3 months, ending around the end of May or Start of June.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.
