Apex Legends was surprise-launched on Feb. 4 and already has over 1 million unique players. In Respawn’s opening blitz of trailers, they showed off a gameplay deep dive. Redditors also spotted a roadmap for the game’s first year of content.
Starting in March, players will be able to purchase a battle pass for Apex Legends. This seems to follow Fortnite’s example pretty closely, with new skins and levels that can be earned only through the battle pass. These passes will run for an entire season. Season 1 runs until June, when season 2 will start. The seasons last three months, with the final season of year 1 starting in December.
But new items and legends will also be coming with each season, aside from the battle pass itself. The roadmap suggests that new legends, weapons, and loot will all be added every season, which should add another layer of strategy to the ever-changing meta.
It’s currently unclear how these items will be rolled out: whether all the new content will be front-loaded on the first day of the season, or if it’ll be spread through the three months. With the first season starting in March, we should know a bit more about the plan soon.
