Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass Leaked

Recently, EA accidentally unveiled details regarding the upcoming addition to the game. Following a recent update on Origin, which has since been taken down, information regarding the season’s battle pass and Octane character were released.

The leak all but confirmed that Apex Legends Season 1 would start imminently, potentially within a matter of days. While several fans had witnessed this, Respawn’s Community Manager quickly addressed the situation.

In a recent Reddit post, u/Jayfresh_Respawn confirmed that the leak was legitimate. Furthermore, they also announced new intel would be released very soon, alongside details of the game’s first new character.

Apex Legends Season 1 Release Date/Time

So, when does Apex Legends Season 1 start? Following the influx of comments and leaks, Gaming INTEL predicts its release could be a matter of days away. All information leading up to March hinted at its launch either on the 2nd or 12th. With both of those dates now upon us, it’s believed that Respawn is planning to release Season 1 within the next week, at the very latest.

We must stress, however, without any official word on the matter from Respawn themselves, an exact release date is NOT confirmed as of yet.

Apex Legends Season 1 is going to release as part of the game’s next patch. While the latest two patches have released at roughly 4 PM and 8 AM GMT, it’s very hard to put a finger on exactly when the next update will arrive. Potentially, Respawn could follow the same pattern as other games, and release the next patch at a similar time, which is usually 5PM-6PM GMT.
