Apex Legends year 1 roadmap includes Battle Passes, new Legends and more

Apex Legends appears to have hit the ground running: Respawn's Titanfall universe battle royale has already amassed one million unique players within 24 hours of launching. But amid the excitement, EA and Respawn has also quietly spelled out the game's year one roadmap in it's deep dive trailer: see the roadmap below.

For those averse to reading images: four Battle Passes will launch throughout 2019: in March, June, September and December. During each of these months, new Legends (playable characters), weapons and loot will also be added. Here's what to expect from the Apex Legends season one battle pass

The Battle Pass looks fairly similar to Fortnite's equivalent. "The Battle Pass is a seasonal system that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic items," reads the Apex Legends FAQ. "These rewards are a mix of exclusive seasonal cosmetics and Apex Packs. Every player can unlock some of these items each season through normal play; those who choose to purchase the Battle Pass can earn everything available that season, around 100 different rewards." 

Importantly, Legends won't come as part of the Battle Pass: the pass is all about cosmetic items and Apex Packs. Wes has more on Apex Legends' microtransactions and loot boxes in this guide.
