It’s been a long time coming, but we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief as the wait is finally over. Today is the day that Apex Legends‘ eagerly awaited Season 1 content finally dropped. Yes, the Wild Frontier pack has arrived and it brings with it a bunch of cool loot and an assortment of goodies. Surprisingly, some of these rewards aren’t even locked behind a paywall. Pretty cool, huh?

With fans going wild over the new season – which includes a ton of new skins, coins, intros, banners and more – the US-based developer has been busy listening to player feedback and refining the moment-to-moment online experience for everyone. That said, Respawn has a lot of ideas planned for the game’s future. So, what could be coming down the pipeline next for the free-to-play battle royale hit?

Well, in a recent post on EA’s official website, lead product manager Lee Horn touched on the potential future plans for what’s to come from the team, while giving fans some insight into Respawn’s philosophies regarding the first Battle Pass.

As a studio, we’re always striving to innovate like we did with our Ping system, the Jumpmaster, Respawning, and more. We look to do the same with our Battle Pass. Season 1 is just the first version on a long road of improvements, updates and tweaks.

Furthermore, he made sure to note that the studio has “plenty of cool ideas in the works,” but would like to hear player feedback via Reddit, Twitter, etc. Essentially, Horn wanted to reassure fans that Respawn are not ignoring anyone, but instead wanted to emphasize: “We’re listening.”

Clearly, Respawn is looking to update and tweak Apex Legends over time, much akin to a “Games as a service” model, albeit in a free-to-play format. And this “live” model lends itself well to listening to player feedback and course correcting accordingly. Although the game has been a huge success for the Titanfall developer, some early negative criticism has reared its head for the lack of meaningful content in the Wild Frontier Battle Pass, specifically. But with excitement for the title reaching fever pitch and with a studio listening ardently to their fans, it’s likely that these critiques won’t affect the momentum that the game has built up.
