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.

CAPTAIN MARVEL Review: Thanos Better Watch Out
Now, with genuine reviews from people who have actually seen the film arriving, it seems that the trolls were just that: trolls. While it does change that story up a bit, fans of that run are likely going to be extremely happy walking out of this film.

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.
