As a battle royale game, many have wondered whether Apex Legends will offer a Battle Pass system. According to a content roadmap released by Respawn Entertainment, Battle Passes are currently planned for Apex Legends. When does the first Battle Pass release? What’s included in the Battle Pass, and how much will it cost?
To help answer your questions, we’ve put together a quick guide on the Battle Pass system of Apex Legends!
Does Apex Legends Have a Battle Pass?
Apex Legends won’t have a Battle Pass system available during the month of February. According to the content roadmap from Respawn, the first Battle Pass will launch in March of this year. As such, you can expect the first Battle Pass in one month’s time, though no specific release date has been revealed.
Additionally, the cost of each Battle Pass is still unknown. We predict a similar price to the Battle Pass in Fortnite, with the individual Battle Pass price for Apex Legends set anywhere from $4.99 to $9.99 (with $9.99 being the most plausible). The Battle Passes in Apex Legends are described as seasonal fare, with four total Battle Passes scheduled to release in 2019.
The first Battle Pass drops in March, while the rest are slated for June, September, and December. The estimated duration of each Battle Pass is three months. In that time, players who purchase a Battle Pass have the opportunity to earn “exclusive cosmetic items.” Among these items are Apex Packs and cosmetics such as skins for Legends and weapons.
Around 100 rewards in total are up for grabs in each Battle Pass, with non-buyers being able to earn a small percentage of those rewards through normal play. Once unlocked, Battle Pass items can be kept forever, even after the season is over. While new Legends and weapons will be added to the game alongside the release of each Battle Pass, Respawn clarified that Legends and weapons won’t be included in Battle Passes.
Only cosmetic items are included in each Battle Pass, so if your plan is to unlock all Legends, you’ll either need to earn Legend Tokens
