Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale game published by Electronic Arts, launched one month ago.

Apex is available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows. As Epic Games recently confirmed the contents of Fortnite‘s new season pass, Apex‘s fans are awaiting news concerning its first season battle pass.
