Fans have been eagerly awaiting Apex Legends Season 2 ever since it was first shown off during the EA Play 2019 event at E3, and now Respawn has announced that an official trailer will be dropping soon.

Season 2 is gearing up to be amazing for Apex Legends fans, with the tease of an imminent all-out dragon invasion, the possibility of two new legend characters, and more.

Respawn has announced that a new trailer for the next season will be dropping very soon – here’s everything players need to know about when and how they can watch.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesFlyers are expected to give the game a massive shake-up in Season 2.

How to watch

In a tweet on June 26, the official Apex Twitter account announced that a new trailer will be coming out on June 27 at 10AM PST / 1PM EST / 6PM GMT. 

The feature image is the tease of the Flyers from their initial announcement at EA Play, so fans can definitely expect new details on the dragons. They’ve been flying around King’s Canyon for a few days now, so it will be great to get an answer as to what they’re doing there.

The trailer is debuting on the game’s official YouTube channel, with many eager fans already speculating what it could contain and what new things will be coming. It’s going to be an explosive reveal, for sure.

What about the Leviathans?

While the Flyers are expected to take centre stage in the reveal, the Leviathans could also make a prominent appearance. The dinosaurs have been catching players’ eyes ever since they were spotted slowly moving towards land after spending all of their time in the ocean.

A hint for the Leviathans’ future was buried all the way back in the Season One trailer, in which they are seen stomping across King’s Canyon, with one of the creatures standing beside a broken device designed to keep them off the map.

Respawn also tweeted about “wildlife intrusions” in the arena with “standard wear and tear” damage. Around the same time the tweet was posted, the Repulsor Tower turned on, hinting that something big could happen soon – we’re betting money on a Leviathan invasion.

With both the dinosaurs and the dragons appearing to gear up for a fight, could we see the two face off against each other? Players should find out very soon.

Every possible RP gain in Apex Legends ranked

Ranked play in Apex Legends allows players to test themselves against others of similar skill and claim special cosmetic items (and bragging rights). A helpful Reddit post breaks down exactly how many Ranked Points players will earn – or lose – based on rank, placement, and kills.

Almost all FPS games offer a separate ranked playlist for their players, and Apex Legends is no different. Since its release in Season 2, the game’s ranked mode has provided players with a way to test their skills against the best of the best.

Ranked Leagues separate players into seven skill brackets – ranging from Bronze to Apex Predator – based on their performance in two ranked splits. Each player’s current rank, match placement, and number of kills/assists determines the number of Ranked Points (RP) they will earn or lose every game.

With RP determined by several different factors, players can find it challenging to track how many points they are earning or losing each match. However, one player has come to the aid of anyone who gets confused.

Apex Legends RP combos

A post on the Apex Legends subreddit helps to clear things up for anyone confused about their potential RP gains. The helpful graphic comes from user Ninjario, who breaks down how many points players can gain or lose based on all three contributing factors: current player rank, final match placement, and total kills/assists.

The graphic shows the exact combinations needed to go positive in each match and what will cause players to lose RP for every skill bracket.

This provides players with an easy understanding of what performance to strive for in ranked: for example, Predator and Master players can easily see that a 6th place finish with three kills or assists is the absolute minimum needed for an RP gain (+6) in their skill bracket.

Ranked Leagues in Season 7

With the release of Season 7, a new ranked series also kicked off in Apex Legends. Starting on November 4, players will compete in ranked on the new Olympus map until December 15. The second split takes place on World’s Edge, and will run from December 15 to the end of Season 7.

In the Season 7 ranked update post, Respawn’s ranked designers discussed the state of ranked play. They covered topics like the ranking distribution of players from Season 6, and some of their on-going goals for the ranked playlist.

The first ranked split of Season 7 is currently available for players to jump into on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
