Twitch star Tyler ‘Apex Legends was a missed opportunity for Respawn but it’s still an incredible game.

Apex Legends got off to a blazing fast start when it first launched in February 2019 but it has cooled off significantly since its launch.

The development has slowed down to the point where fans are openly wondering what’s next for the game and many are growing impatient. Games like Fortnite Battle Royale have led players to expect more frequent updates than developers may be used to.

Respawn EntertainmentNew content dropping in Season 2?

Ninja was asked by a viewer about Apex Legends and he shared his opinion on the game as a whole, praising some aspects but saying updates just didn’t come fast enough.

“I don’t think anyone’s gonna leave Fortnite to play Apex,” he said. “Listen, I’m gonna say what I’ve always said about that game, it’s incredible. Gunplay, everything about it man, it was incredible. They missed a huge opportunity by not providing fresh and new exciting content. It got pretty stale, they know that. I don’t think there’s anyone there that would argue that they have done a great job at putting in new content.”

What is coming with Season 2?

Respawn promised to improve on the Season 1 Battle Pass with better content and possibly a map change, according to a blog post.

New Legends are pretty much a certainty as well and there’s a lot out there on a Legend named Wattson, someone who currently isn’t in the game. However, shroud warns fans to not get their hopes up too much.

For more concrete information, fans will have to wait until E3, which June 7 to June 9. Respawn promises a lot with Season 2 so let’s see if they can deliver.

Apex Legends YouTuber leaks Season 7 lobby & Horizon skin on accident

An Italian Youtuber seems to have accidentally shared embargoed footage of the upcoming Apex Legends Season 7’s lobby, challenges, and even a brand new skin for the yet-to-be-released Horizon character.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to kick off on November 4, and with everyone itching to get a look at all of the new content headed our way, some of it may have been unveiled a tad bit too early.

As is the case before pretty much every new season, some of the game’s more prominent content creators are given early access to try out and record the new content for their YouTube channels, which can’t be released before a specified date.

For S7, that date was Monday, November 2, but, on October 31, YouTuber Mox600 inadvertently uploaded a shot of Horizon with her new outfit skin standing in the revamped lobby, before he quickly made the video private.

In the leaked video, we see a mohawked, neon Horizon who’s also rocking some goggles and what seems to be body armor as well. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Olympus seems to have plenty of color going on because this one might stick out like a sore thumb on maps like Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Because Respawn won’t start selling new items for her until the season gets going, this cosmetic is most likely a Battle Pass skin, maybe even the one players unlock in the final Tier.

Apex’s pre-game lobby has a fresh new look as well, as it seems to actually be outside in the streets of Olympus, with the brand new Season 7 map serving as a backdrop for player banners.

Along with these we also got a look at the new STARS system. Combined with match XP, the STARS will contribute to a repeatable weekly challenge that grants a full Battle Pass level with each completion. This XP is specific to Battle Pass, meaning it won’t impact Account Level progression.

While this definitely appears to be a legit leak of upcoming Season 7 content, in the grand scheme of things there’s still a lot of actual gameplay to see as we get ready to head into Olympus, so we wouldn’t really consider this that massive of a spoiler.

Exactly what will be included in the upcoming Battle Pass should be soon revealed as well, but at least we got a look at one of the skins that’ll likely be featured, and if it’s anything to go by, Season 7 might be a doozy.
