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.

Apex Legends is adding a no-guns LTM in Season 7: Olympus Preview

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
