All Apex Legends seasons & events start dates, end dates, new content & weapons
Apex Legends, now over four years, is still pumping out new seasons and events, keeping the player base entertained with new content. Here, we’ve compiled the history of Apex Legends’ updates, and when every season and event began and ended.
EA says they expect Apex to be a global franchise for at least a decade. To do that, the developers at Respawn need to keep the game fresh, and they do that with new releases of seasons and events.
They’ve certainly been successful in doing so, keeping the player count of Apex Legends growing over time.
Each new season brings a new Legend to the Apex Games, as well as an assortment of other content, like maps, game modes, weapons, and cosmetic content. Here’s a rundown of the history of Apex Legends, and when each season started and ended.
When did each Apex Legends season start & end?
Each Apex Legends season lasts approximately three months, although there have been a few exceptions to this, such as season three, which went on much longer than anticipated.
