Each week in September, a returning LTM mode will be available in Apex Legends, rotating every Thursday, and we know now which LTMs are coming, after DUMMIE’s Big Day was temporarily disabled.

The September Soiree event is the first mid-season event of Season 6, and as well as returning LTMs, will bring back skins from the Grand Soiree in January, that can be purchased at a discounted price.

This sale will start on September 15 and run until September 22, while the September Soiree itself continues until October 5.

DUMMIE’s Big Day had to be taken out due to a major bug.

This is because the final LTM will begin on September 29, and be available for one week. However, Respawn themselves did not confirm what the next modes will be in rotation, following DUMMIE’s Big Day.

Unfortunately, shortly after DUMMIE’s Big Day went live, a somewhat game-breaking bug would crash the lobby if a player went AFK during character select.

Respawn acted quickly and disabled the mode, and replaced it with Kings Canyon: After Dark.

Next LTMs in Apex Legends

As confirmed by reliable data miner and content creator Shrugtal, three more LTMs are coming, in the following order:

  • King’s Canyon: After Dark
  • Armed & Dangerous
  • DUMMIEs Big Day
  • LIVE. DIE. LIVE.

If Respawn keep the dates they were using previously, then Armed & Dangerous will start on September 15, DUMMIE’s Big Day on September 22, and LIVE. DIE. LIVE on September 29.

If you’re unfamiliar with these modes, Armed & Dangerous typically only has Shotguns and Snipers, with limited shields.

Kings Canyon: After Dark is fairly self-explanatory, it’s just the night-time version of the map. The last time this LTM was available, it was the Season 2 version of Kings Canyon. That could mean Skulltown returns.

And finally, LIVE. DIE. LIVE automatically respawns dead teammates every time the ring closes.

As mentioned, it’s still possible that these LTMs change, or the dates they’re scheduled to arrive changes. We’ll keep you up to date.

Apex Legends rocket finally roars to life on World’s Edge in Olympus teaser

T-minus 10 to Olympus — the World’s Edge rocket has finally fired up its engine after lying dormant for most of last season, in the next Apex Legends Season 7 teaser to appear in-game ahead of the battle royale’s next huge update.

Apex Legends players have spotted the latest in-game teaser ahead of the release of Season 7 ⁠— the World’s Edge rocket has finally fired up its engines, after nearly three months of lying dormant in the middle of the battle royale map.

The rocket has yet to leave, but it’s now-firing thrusters are clearly visible.

Fire is pouring out of the bottom of the spaceship’s thrusters, while smoke billows out of venting chambers around the rocket’s main shaft. It’s certainly come alive.

The Hammond rocket, located in new Season 6 point of interest Launch Site, has been part of the scenery for months. It certainly seemed important ⁠— especially when it featured in an early Rampart teaser ⁠— but players weren’t sure why.

Now everything seems clear; the Hammond rocket may well be taking Apex Legends to its long-awaited third battle royale map, which Respawn officially unveiled on Oct. 26.

The new map, which Dexerto tipped all the way back in Season 5, has been mentioned and name-dropped in multiple Apex Legends teasers over the past few months. It’s arrival ended up being delayed slightly, but now it’s finally on its way.

Or rather, it looks like we’re on our way to it. The end of Season 6 ⁠— Wednesday, Nov. 4, for the record ⁠— should see us finally board the now-prepared Hammond rocket, and fling us all the way to the third Apex Legends map, Olympus.

Olympus is going to be the first proper city Apex Legends players get to play in since launch.

The rocket rumbling to life isn’t the only Olympus teaser we’ve seen land on World’s Edge in the buildup to the season switch either. Last week, a mysterious UFO began floating on the outskirts on the map. Sadly, you can’t board the huge structure just yet.

For now, it’s a waiting game. We’ll see the new Olympus map arrive next week, along with vehicles, the next Apex Legends character “Horizon,” a long-awaited clubs feature, and much more, but we’ve got just a little more waiting to do first!
