Apex Legends took the gaming world by surprise nearly a month ago when it released out of nowhere. For the past several weeks, players have been enjoying Respawn’s take on the battle royale genre. But while players have been racking up wins and gathering experience, the next big step for the game is yet to come. Season 1 is set to begin in the weeks ahead.
But when is that first season of Apex Legends supposed to start?
When does Apex Legends Season 1 start?
The exact start date for Apex Legends Season 1 is currently unknown. Season 1’s official start date is set to be revealed in the days ahead.
There is, however, a rumored start date. The rumor stems from an anonymous source who reached out to the folks at DailyEsports. According to this source, Season 1 is set to kick off on March 12. This date will see the first Apex Legends Battle Pass release for purchase on all platforms.
The contents for the first Battle Pass are unknown. However, the rumors point to a bundle that will not be purchasable with in-game coins. More details on what the Battle Pass will feature, along with pricing information, will be revealed in the near future.
The Daily Esports rumor mill points to an all-new playable character named Octane. Information on this new character is sparse, but he is rumored to be the face of the big Season 1 update. According to a Reddit leak, Octane’s skill set includes a health-restoring passive, a stat-boosting adrenaline needle, and a jump pad that can be deployed for any of Octane’s teammates.
Given the way that Apex Legends first came to the gaming world’s attention, there’s a chance that Season 1 may not even get a release date, but just suddenly drop via a same-day announcement. The only way to know for sure is to stay tuned. In the meantime, be sure to brush up on our Apex Legends game guide, tips, and strategies.
