Details on Apex Legends Season 2 were recently announced during the EA Play event at E3 2019, giving players an insight into what’s coming to the game in the near future.
A new Legend is on the way, as well as a new weapon, an updated Battle Pass, and more. The upcoming season will really shake up the game in ways never been seen before.
Season 2 is bringing a lot of changes to the game.
Are Titans coming to Apex?
In an interview with Game Informer, Respawn’s executive producer Drew McCoy talked about the long-time speculation of more Titanfall content being incorporated into Apex Legends – Titans specifically.
“We prototyped it for like nine months during development, and we couldn’t get it to work well,” Drew revealed. “Titans were created back in the day as a power item. As a sense of, ‘I am now a badass, don’t mess with me.’ That fantasy fulfillment is destroyed immediately in battle royale once you’ve balanced them to a point where they don’t ruin battle royale.”
He then went onto explain that the development team simply couldn’t put a character of that scope and size into the game because of the complexity accompanying its design, saying, “We could never pull enough levers – how you get it, how strong it is, how fast it is, how big it is, what kind of weapons it has, when do you have it – all that kind of stuff.
“So I think for now, Titans are just not a thing. We’re no longer considering it.” he ended. It’s sad that Apex will never see Titans in the game, but at least there’s a good reason behind the decision.
Titans in Apex Legends would be so cool.
Will Apex be getting cross-play?
In the same interview, the team also talked about the possibility of cross-play coming to the game. Players have been wanting to team up with their friends across different platforms for a while now, so the addition would be a welcome one.
Battle royale rival Fortnite offers cross-play, so it would certainly help boost the game’s popularity if Respawn were to add it to Apex.
Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.
Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around.
Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.
The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.
Rampart joined the party in Apex Legends Season 6, but the countdown is on to Season 7.
Apex Legends Season 7 legend
Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.
The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.
The Trident, a hovercraft-style vehicle appears throughout the new Ascension trailer
We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.
The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.
Apex on Steam
With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.
New weapon type: Gadgets
It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.
