Octane is the latest Legend character to be added to Apex Legends. Octane can be unlocked for 750 Apex Coins or 12,000 Legend Tokens starting on March 19, 2019 at 10 a.m (PST) or 1 p.m. (EST). At this time, both the Season 1 Battle Pass and Octane will become available for purchase.

Note that Octane is not included in the Season 1 Battle Pass, but is a separate addition to Apex Legends. As such, Octane must be purchased separately from the Season 1 Battle Pass. If you don’t see Octane in the list of Legends, close out of Apex Legends and restart the game. In doing so, you should notice the game download the latest update introducing the Season 1 Battle Pass and Octane.

Again, the update will launch at 10 a.m. (PST) or 1 p.m. (EST) on Tuesday, March 19. Once this update has finished downloading, open the game and navigate to the Legends tab to view Octane and learn more about how his character works. If you like Octane and wish to unlock him immediately, all you need to do is exchange either 750 Apex Coins or 12,000 Legend Tokens.

On the PlayStation Blog, Octane’s abilities including speed and health regeneration were briefly outlined in order to give players a better idea as to what they can expect from Apex Legend’s newest character.

“His Adrenaline Junkie ability lets him trade health for speed, and an endless supply of Stim health regeneration means he’s always ready for action. His Launch Pad Ultimate Ability lets his squad fly through the air with the greatest of ease.”

To recap, Octane unlocks at the same time as the Season 1 Battle Pass in Apex Legends on March 19 at 10 a.m. (PST) and 1 p.m. (EST). Octane is separate from the Season 1 Battle Pass, meaning if you wish to unlock him you’ll need to purchase him separately. Octane can be purchased in exchange for 750 Apex Coins or 12,000 Legend Tokens.
