When does the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass start?

Everything we know so far about the start of the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass and the road map for the future.

It’s fair to say that Apex Legends has had a pretty solid opening as games go, pushing past 25 million players in the space of a week. The free to play battle royale game is the current zeitgeist for certain, but developer Respawn Entertainment will want to keep that interest rolling over the coming months and even years.

To that end, the studio has planned seasonal content in the Fortnite style, complete with a Battle Pass for players to tackle. In this article we’ll run you through all the details we have so far on Apex Legends’ roadmap, and let you know when the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass starts.

When does the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass start?

Respawn Entertainment has released a roadmap for a full year of planned content for Apex Legends, and it all kicks off in March with Season 1. Though there’s no exact date set, we expect it to line up with the beginning of the month so that the Battle Pass can begin funding the huge number of free players the game is currently playing host to.

What to expect from the Apex Legends Battle Pass

There are four Seasons currently planned, each lasting three months. Every Season will come with its own Battle Pass. as well as a new Legend, new weapon and new loot. The current roadmap shown below indicates they’ll limit it to one new weapon added each Season, but plans may change if they want to keep up attention. We expect the weapon and loot to be universally available, while the Legends will be locked to owners of the pass or purchasable in-game.

  • Season 1 of Apex Legends starts in March
  • Season 2 of Apex Legends starts in June
  • Season 3 of Apex Legends starts in September
  • Season 4 of Apex Legends starts in December

As well as the guaranteed additions to the game, you should expect the Battle Pass to offer a set of challenges for players to test themselves with, including kills with certain weapons or finishers, looting in certain regions, or even zipline travel distance. Apex Legends’ world doesn’t take itself too seriously, so we expect the developers to have some fun with these.

Finally, Respawn has also stated that they are open to the idea of developing new maps for the game, so we expect a few of them to arrive much further down the line. Right now players are still working out the best strategies for Kings Canyon, so this will probably be towards the latter half of the year.

That’s all we know about Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass so far, but we’ll update this guide as more information comes out. Until then, take a look at our range of other guides.
