Meet Octane: The First New Playable Legend for Apex Legends

Apex Legends
Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass : Wild Frontier will release tomorrow, Tuesday the 18th.

20 March, 2019

Apex Legends players are primed and ready to roll when Season 1: Wild Frontier launches at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern today.

Grab the Wild Frontier Battle Pass and jump into the arena, where every level you gain levels up your Battle Pass and unlocks exclusive rewards.

Players can view all the rewards for the Battle Pass here.

Alternatively, you could opt for the Battle Pass Bundle, which reduces the grind by skipping you ahead 25 levels. There's now no equivalent option for PS4. But instead of completing challenges as you do in Fortnite, you'll earn experience in Apex Legends just by playing. It'll cost 950 Apex Coins, or roughly $9.50.

Called Wild Frontier, the first season brings all manner of fresh content to the game, and you can get even more if you opt to purchase the Battle Pass, which has also been confirmed.

Some links to supporting retailers are automatically made into affiliate links, and GameSpot may receive a small share of those sales. If you choose to buy a pass later in the season then you will unlock all the loot you earned in previous levels.

United Kingdom parliament votes on extension of Article 50
I gave the Prime Minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful. First up is that hugely controversial and fascinating vote on whether to back a second referendum.

Samsung already at work on new smartphones with foldable screens
The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a sizeable 7.3-inch screen once it is unfolded like a book, and a "small" 4.6-inch screen when folded. Samsung really upped their video game this year, so the S10 5G can record in 4K UHD with HDR10+ in HEVC format, if you choose so.

Titans’ pursuit of Antonio Brown appears over
Brown spoke with Pittsburgh owner Art Rooney II earlier this off-season and decided it would be best for the two to part ways. ESPN is now reporting trade talks for Brown are ongoing and a deal with Buffalo is not out of the question but "unlikely".

Season One of Battle Pass is set to be a gentle introduction to what Respawn is planning to be a "long road of improvements, updates and tweaks", assuring fans of its "cool ideas in the works". First off, they instantly unlock the Wraith Survivor skin, Mirage Outlaw skin, and the Lifeline Revolutionary skin!

Octane has prosthetic legs following his original limbs being blow off during a record-breaking gauntlet speedrun, and has an Adrenaline Junkie ability that enables him to trade health for extra speed.

Finally, there is the Battle Pass Bundle, which unlocks the 25 levels instantly, cutting down the time between starting and reaching that coveted level 100.

What happens if I buy my Battle Pass late in the season?

Can I keep leveling my Season 1 Battle Pass after the season ends? I know, right? When not in battle Octane can slowly regenerate his health but still has to manually charge his shields.

Battle Pass holders will get a range of rewards including Rare weapon skins, Apex Coins, new dialogue lines, badges and banners as they progress through the levels. Season 1 launches today.
