Ban galore: Apex Legends has banned over 355k PC accounts for cheating

Found within the games files were texture files for unreleased Legends including the previously leaked Octane.

Based on leaks posted to Reddit and an accidental Origin client update some players apparently received, it looked like the battle pass would be revealed today.

For the time being this is the only further information we have about the Battle Pass for Season 1. Under that, it says "Survive the arena, meet the Apex Games' latest Legend, Octane, wield new weapons and score unique loot".

PUBG and Fortnite have had a problem with scripts running loose on their servers, and Apex Legends is no stranger to this scourge either. Forbes and Daily Esports believe that the next character will launch with the season one Battle Pass, giving players more of an incentive to purchase the bundle.

'It's show time': Apple confirms launch event on March 25
According to a report by Bloomberg , Apple has invested over a billion dollars to produce shows for its video-streaming services. Apple has also officially put out the event tagline which says "It's show time" and also has sent an animated countdown GIF.


However, this image appears to tie the release of Octane with the launch of the Apex Legends Battle Pass.

"The Battle Pass is a seasonal system that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic items", the official Apex site confirms.

CORRECTION (3.11.19 - 3:04 p.m. EDT): An earlier version of this story stated that the Apex Legends Battle Pass would release on March 12. Those leaks have painted a picture both of what the new Legend will be and, roughly, when it will release. Thanks to a recent update to the datamining tools used to dig deep into Apex Legends, miners have been able to find new images and information about possible new heroes.

Apex Legends new character release date is a hot topic these days, as the Battle Pass expected to add the character to the game is slated to arrive this month. Numerous content revealed could be old or out-dated, so any fan using these leaks to make decisions about the game are doing so under shaky premises. Yeah, you could do that, but if you play on PC or Xbox One why not spend half as much and get a bunch of other extras on top of the 1,000 coins?
