Apex Legends New Character Release Date: Everything You Need to Know

Respawn Entertainment have vowed to improve the cheat-busting tech in Apex Legends, though it seems to be doing pretty well already considering they say they've banned over 355,000 accounts since launch five weeks ago.

"Our source claims that the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass will feature both a paid and free version", writes the site, before sharing an image of what appears to be in-game source files that show off a "free" Battle Pass and a "Diamond" Battle Pass. Respawn says that while its Easy Anti-Cheat system is working to help identify players using cheats, but "the fight against cheaters is an ongoing war that we'll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting".

In order to keep up, Respawn has said that it is "working on improvements to combat cheaters". "Cheaters are crafty and we don't want them to see us coming". That's a drop in the bucket compared to the 50 million people who are playing the game, but every single one of those players benefits from having cheaters kicked out of the battle royale.

Aside from that, the anti-cheat team is going to be scaled up and have more dedicated resources. This has not been confirmed by EA or Respawn, however.

Another significant complaint among players that isn't tied directly to cheaters is the matter of quitters. With the game not replacing that member of the team, it puts you at a serious disadvantage before your feet even touch the ground. There will also be skins, though it's unclear how many or how they will be obtained.

Solutions won't happen right away but we're on it.

While Respawn is working on all these issues and more, one issue it isn't working on at the moment is a reconnect to match feature. The studio is looking into the matter, but it might not be a simple, quick fix. If this could be fixed by spending money on faster/more servers we would do it, but unfortunately there is no silver bullet on this one.

Octane is expected to be the next character released by Respawn for Apex Legends on PS4, Xbox and PC.
