Apex Legends Season 5 is officially on the way, and Respawn is rolling out a brand new launch trailer to kick things off on May 5.

Fans have been patiently waiting weeks for the beginning of Season 5 along with the arrival of the latest legend Loba, who we’ve slowly gotten to know a little better in the weeks leading up to the big kickoff.

It’s already been revealed that Season 5 will be known as “Fortune’s Favor” and besides letting us finally play as Loba, it will also bring an updated Battle Pass, Ranked Series, and more new content.

When is the Apex Legends Season 5 launch trailer?

Airing live on YouTube, the Season 5 Apex Legends Launch Trailer is set to kick off at 10AM PST on May 5.

The broadcast will be live on the official Apex Legends YouTube channel before S5 officially kicks off on May 12.

You can watch the Launch Trailer live right here on the viewer below, when the time comes:

What’s new in Apex Legends Season 5?

Loba

Finally, after weeks of leaks, speculation, and rumors, Loba has finally been confirmed as the new Legend for Season 5. Her reveal trailer, ‘Legacy of a Thief,’ provided a glimpse of her long journey from an orphan to a professional thief. Now, she’s back to get revenge on Revenant, who killed her parents when she was a girl.

While we don’t know what her abilities will officially be, previous leaks suggested that they will follow the character’s themes of thievery and stealth, which should add a nice twist to the Apex Games.

Season Quests

Along with Season 5, developers will also be introducing Season Quests, a new way for players to earn rewards: “Hunt for treasure and answers in the new Season Quest. Those who complete the journey will be richly rewarded.”

It’s not clear yet how these Quests will work, but we should find out more information about what objectives they will require during the Launch Trailer. The feeling so far is that they will be long-form challenges that players will have to work towards all season long, so it will be exciting to see whether or not that’s the case.

Bizarre Apex Legends bug is teleporting players across the map

Apex Legends players have run into a huge issue where they are teleported across the map if they’re knocked after trying to use a Replicator. 

With Apex Legends Season 7 on the horizon, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale are looking forward to what the next big update will bring – including a new legend, a potential new map, as well as changes to the current legends and weapon pool. 

However, in the meantime, they’re still running around King’s Canyon and World’s Edge, trying to rack up wins and pick up the last few bits of the Season 6 battle pass. 

Yet, some players have been hit with an unusual problem that is teleporting them back to a Replicator if they’re knocked down during a firefight.

The unusual issue was flagged by Reddit user i7estrox, who showed that it all stemmed from them trying to use a Replicator. One side of the crafting machine was inaccessible, but they were fine to use the others.

As they progressed on in their match, i7estrox engaged a team of enemies and despite getting some decent shots off, they were knocked down. However, instead of staying where they were knocked, the Redditor was sent hurtling across the map. 

They were taken right back to the side of the Replicator that was inaccessible at first, and left to lay there as their teammates continued on fighting.

It seems likely that, given i7estrox tried to access the inaccessible side of the Replicator at first, the game registered them as still using it for some reason, even though they’d moved on and that’s why they were teleported back.

Other players have confirmed that they’ve fallen victim to the same problem, so Respawn might have to get their skates on and get the issue ironed out for Season 7 – unless they have already. But, we’ll just have to keep an eye on that.
