With Apex Legends Season 3 drawing to a close, players are getting hyped in preparation for what’s next, and are predicting what’s in-store as we look ahead to Season 4.

Apex Legends’ third season brought a ton of changes to the battle royale. From the brand new map World’s Edge, to a new Legend in the form of Crypto, it was the biggest update to date.

While Respawn’s bold move left many players yearning for Kings Canyon’s return, the third installment titled ‘Meltdown’ has been an unprecedented success, since October was the game’s top grossing month since launch.

Fans predict Apex Legends Season 4

Given Respawn’s Season 3 efforts thus far, fans are eagerly looking forward to the next installment. Scheduled to start on February 4 (the one-year anniversary of the release date), Season 4 will likely change up the meta yet again. 

In terms of what we’ve seen so far, each season has introduced one new Legend to their now diverse list of characters. However, beyond that, Respawn has introduced various elements to their battle royale.

That hasn’t stopped one fan from posting a ‘Bingo Card’ to the Apex Legends subreddit, which attempts to predict what will be added in February.

While the Reddit user chimed in with various inevitable character buffs/nerfs, they also probed a bunch of features which fans have been longing for in Apex Legends, such as post-match replays and a dedicated spectator mode.

From the addition of a PvE mode to the return of Kings Canyon. If the original Apex Games arena is set to make a comeback, where better to introduce a brand new PvE mode to celebrate Apex Legends’ one year anniversary. 

Indeed, the Redditor aptly predicts that an anniversary event will be bundled into Season 4, which is pretty much a given.

Right at the top of the user’s prediction list is a plea for Respawn to remove skill-based matchmaking — a topic that has caused quite the stir among the Apex Legends pros and faithful fans alike.

The fan also anticipates that two Legends will be added (breaking the usual trend of one per season). This is perhaps a tad overzealous, considering that the season will likely be littered with a shed load of fresh content in the form of limited-time events. 

Given that a complete Legend profile has essentially surfaced for Revenant from in-game leaks, it is highly likely that we will see the character during Season 4, after their brief appearance in the Fight or Fright LTM.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
