A new teaser for Apex Legends Season 3 hints at a new map after Crypto is now missing from King’s Canyon.

Apex Legends players can feel there’s a huge change coming to the battle royale, and it looks like a final September 26 clue has all but convinced fans that they’ll soon be competing on a new planet.

Respawn Entertainment have been releasing a swarm of Crypto-related teasers, showing what the mysterious hacker has been up to in the moments leading up to a proper introduction in the Apex Games.

The devs are definitely preparing to reveal all soon, seeing as Crypto has completely vanished from Kings Canyon, and possibly en route to another locale.

Various story elements have been lending to the idea of a new planet being introduced for players to explore, and Apex Legends loremaster ‘FrozenFroh’ is starting to see how it’ll all lead up to a huge reveal.

The new teaser tweeted by the official Apex Legends account showed the front end of the Draconis with the rest of the ship shrouded by clouds on a gloomy atmosphere.

“[ACCESSING FILE: NEW DAWN],” the tweet’s text said. “[UPLOADING TO DATABASE: ESTIMATED TIME….1440 MINUTES]”

With basic maths, players can deduce that Respawn has something arriving for Friday, September 27 at 10 am, confirming previous suspicions from another teaser.

But piecing it all together, a new theory of a frost-covered planet might be in the cards for whatever the devs have planned.

Even though “New Dawn” ties together with a previous planet named “Dawn” once seen in a concept for the Titanfall universe, it looks like it might just be Respawn’s way of signaling a new era for the game.

Lifeline and Octane’s home planet of Psamathe is starting to seem likely as the new location, especially since there are unused voice recordings for Legends hinting to a cold environment.

Not much is known about Psamathe, but an image of Lifeline hanging from a cliff shows a frozen tundra with lava veins prominently in the background.

Whatever might brewing, it seems like there’s only one day left to wait until the Apex Legends devs give players a full look at what’s to come in Season 3 and Crypto is already on his way.

Apex Legends Season 8 event, Chaos Theory, is expected to release in March, and will launch alongside the release of Apex on Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything we know about the event so far, including release date, leaks, rumors and even an heirloom to be expected.

When is Chaos Theory event in Apex Legends?

The event is expected to start on March 11, just a couple days after the Switch release for Apex Legends, on March 9. This will follow the conclusion of the Anniversary Collection event on March 3, after it was extended by a week.

Events typically last between two and three weeks, so expect a similar time frame for Chaos Theory.

Despite no official announcement yet, we know it will be called Chaos Theory after Target revealed it early on their Nintendo Switch Champion Edition listing.

Caustic Town Takeover

Respawn have been teasing the next Town Takeover, expected to be for Caustic, in-game. The first teaser dropped on February 23.

The Town Takeover will be at Water Treatment on Kings Canyon, but we will have to wait until Respawn do a full reveal to see what it looks like.

Bangalore Heirloom

Bangalore is the only original launch Legend who hasn’t received an heirloom yet, and all signs point to her being next up.

Numerous leaks from data miners have found what Bangalore’s heirloom will be, so you can check it out here if you don’t mind the spoiler.

The Anniversary Collection event provides the opportunity to get 150 heirloom shards, so if you’re a Bangalore main, you might want to hold on to those shards for a bit.

Chaos Theory event skins

We don’t yet have any images of the skins coming in the event, but data miners have narrowed down which Legends we can expect some new cosmetics for specifically.

Thanks to reliable leaker Biast12, the expected event skins are for the following characters:

Legendary:

  • Caustic
  • Crypto
  • Gibraltar
  • Loba
  • Rampart
  • Revenant
  • Wattson

Epic:

  • Octane
  • Caustic
  • Wattson

There are also files for numerous recolors for past event skins, but we’re not sure yet if these will be available during the Chaos Theory event, or separately.


That’s everything we know so far about the Chaos Theory event, though there are still a lot of details unknown. We’ll keep you updated on everything right here, and on Twitter @TitanfallBlog.
