Respawn Entertainment have confirmed Apex Legends Season 8 is coming in early February, and while the clock ticks down for the big update, we already have news on the new legend and weapon entering the battle.
The game has come a long way since being released in February 2019, and two years later, we’re on the cusp of its eighth major content refresh.
Apex Legends Season 8 start date
Respawn Entertainment confirmed on January 18 that the game will be entering Season 8 on February 2, meaning there’s not much longer to wait.
This was announced via their official website, where they stated it would be called “Mayhem” as its official title.
