Respawn further detailed the Battle Pass, confirming it can only be purchased in the in-game store using Apex Coins from the Battle Pass tab.

Electronic Arts has confirmed that Apex Legends Season 1, Wild Frontier, will go live at 10 am PT/1 pm ET tomorrow, March 19, and has also (finally) dropped the details on the Season 1 Battle Pass. Players who buy the pass and level up will gain rewards like weapon skins, banner frames, and more. So, part Bangalore, part Pathfinder, minus the good looks of either.

Announced and detailed on the official Apex Legends webpage, every level gained during Season 1 unlocks a Battle Pass reward, and there are over 100 that can be earned throughout the season. Fortunately the goals for this first season are specifically geared towards players still learning the ropes.

You'll receive all the rewards up to your Battle Pass level (which is your current level for the season) retroactively!

The Battle Pass is a pretty good deal, and that's even more so, considering you potentially never have to buy one ever again. Better yet, despite the pass costing 950 Apex Coins, you can earn 1000 more from the pass itself, so dedicated players can effectively earn the next Battle Pass (or unlock Octane) through regular play. Good camo, maybe? Those playing free can still earn some goodies this season, too.

Fans can also buy the Battle Pass Bundle, which unlocks the next 25 Battle Pass levels and their respective rewards automatically for 2,800 Apex Coins ($28 US).

The next era of Apex Legends begins tomorrow, March 19th, at 10 am PST. Plus, people who buy the pass will immediately get three Wild Frontier-themed Legend skins. The game is free-to-play and can be found here on Origin. There will also be a new Legend joining the game on Tuesday and, although it hasn't been officially announced, this new legend is expected to be Octane, a thrill seeker equipped with jump pads to help him navigate around the map.

YouTube, Facebook under scrutiny after streaming Christchurch terror attack
In a statement, Facebook said it had deleted some 1.5 million copies of the video in the first 24 hours after the attack. Senators Cory Booker and Mark Warner, criticized the companies as being too slow in taking down the post.
