Apex Legends Battle Move releasing Season 1 At present? EA Origin Leak confirms Octane Replace

OCTANE appears to be Apex Legends new character after a new image appeared on the EA Origin website. But are respawn about to release the Battle Pass for Season 1 later today too?

Apex Legends could be about to shadow drop the Season 1 Battle Pass right this very second after a new image was leaked on Twitter.

This new image appears to confirm the existence of Octane, a new legend character that had previously been leaked two weeks back.

However, this new image – seen below – went live accidentally on EA’s own Origin website mere minutes ago.

That said, with EA uploading potentially brand new images and content on their official sites, it’s plausible that the games big new update could be about to drop without so much of a heads up from the developers or publisher.

Which wouldn’t be crazy, since, they did already release the game with zero fan fare? For those who don’t recall, the game, launched early February, pretty drop launched within a day or two of rumours about a potentially new titanfall game.

So the idea that Respawn might just drop the Battle Pass without saying a word would also be pretty on brand for the game so far.

For those interested, the image comes by way of the Twitter user, @shrugtal who noticed a small image showing Octane along with the line:

“Welcome to the Wild Frontier – Survive the arena, meet Apex Games’ latest legend, Octane, wield new weapons and score unique loot. The Season 1 Battle Pass is here, purchase it at the in-game store for 950 Apex Coins.”

This image was pulled, but the background appears to still be available on the Origin website’s back end.

As you can imagine, the discovery has led many to believe the Battle Pass could launch tonight!

Which would tie in with previous rumours we’d heard regarding the Apex Legends Battle Pass Release Date from a tweet sent out by AMD.

For the time being this is the only further information we have about the Battle Pass for Season 1. 

But if this announcement is coming today, or at least, an announcement for the release of the Battle Pass, we doubt more info will be that far behind.

For the time being, you can recap what Respawn has said about the Battle Pass just below, along with the rumours character abilities for Octane.

What we know about Season 1, so far..

What has Respawn said:

“The Battle Pass is a seasonal system that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic items,” the official website confirms.

“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.

“Everything you earn with the Battle Pass is yours to keep, even after the Season is over.

“Legends will not be included in the Battle Pass. The Battle Pass gives players exclusive cosmetic items and Apex Packs.”
