Since the reveal, Respawn has released a blog post to try and explain its choice behind the Battle Pass. "Season 1 is about keeping it focused and allowing players to earn a lot of rewards at a great value" it reads, pointing out that if players use the battle pass's progression bonus to reach level 97, they'll have accrued back the cost of a Battle Pass purchase as in-game credit.
Season 1 - Wild Frontier begins at 10:00AM Pacific today, March 19th. However, if the regular battle pass is enough for you, there's a way to get it for way cheaper: by signing up for one month of EA Access (Xbox One) or Origin Basic Access (PC), which each cost only U.S. $5 / £4 / AU $7 per month.
The Battle Pass will retail for 950 Apex Coins (equal to $9.50) at a baseline but you can also purchase the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins to unlock the next 25 levels of the Battle Pass.
It looks like Octane will be available to purchase separate from the Battle Pass, although Express Online has contacted EA for confirmation.

There will be 100 Battle Pass rewards to unlock in Season 1, 25 of which you can unlock instantly with the Battle Pass Bundle. Even if you don't buy the Battle Pass, you can still earn rewards that include a Legend skin, five Apex Packs (chests with random rewards) and 18 stat trackers to show off your gaming skills at the beginning and end of matches.
Wild Frontier will also include a series of balance patches to the Legends, include Caustic ability buffs, hitbox improvements for all large characters, and slight nerfs to Wraith and Bangalore.
Similar to Fortnite, fans can buy two different Season 1 Battle Pass bundles.
The way it all works is...well, it's a battle pass.
Manchester United were not s*** against Arsenal - Solskjaer
Despite the defeat, Solskjaer - whose side travel to Wolves for an FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday - has no issues with United's performance and believes they were unlucky to lose.
"Our first Battle Pass is all about letting you continue to learn and experiment with the core Apex Legends experience while earning awesome loot at the same time".
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. In addition, we've included our first ever three-stage evolving Legendary Havoc weapon skin (for veterans who are looking for the new hotness), as well as Epic and Legendary Apex Packs.
Exclusive badges, Battle Pass boosts and more! "Season 1 is just the first version on a long road of improvements, updates and tweaks. Playing as squads of three is the only option available right now, but Respawn's communication system combined with the limited number of Legends available now means three players per team is plenty".
