When does Apex Legends Season 4 start? Season 3 end, new legend, more

by Connor Bennett


The countdown to Apex Legends Season 4 is slowly getting underway, with players trying to find out a release date and who will join the fight as the next character. So, here’s what we know so far. 

Apex Legends season three may well be in full flow, although that doesn’t stop fans from questioning when they’ll be moving on to the new seasonal content – especially with season four on the horizon. 

Respawn Entertainment will no doubt be looking to shake up their popular battle royale title, but maybe not with the same overhaul as season three’s new map. Regardless, though, let’s take a look at what we know so far.

When will Apex Legends Season 4 be released?

Without a specific date in the offing, the starting point of Season 4 should be happening in December – based on Respawn’s year-long content plan.

However, the developers' first-year roadmap originally had a September release date slated for Season 3. That wasn’t the case as it fell behind just like the previous campaigns. In fact, Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 all started a month later than first scheduled, so we can expect a similar timeframe for Season 4 as well.

That would put Season 4's start date at January, almost a full year after the game was originally launched.

Will Apex Legends Season 4 have a new legend?

Previous seasons have introduced Octane, Wattson, and Crypto to the Apex Legends roster, and the fourth major update should be no different. However, it’s difficult to say as to who exactly will be joining the team.

We’ve seen a number of leaks for new characters, some more detailed than others, but unlike Crypto in season three, there hasn’t been a tonne of hints. It’s possible to say that Revenant maybe next considering they play a role in the Shadowfall LTM as that creepy voice you always hear.

It could also very well end up being someone like Rosie or Nomad, who both were hinted at ahead of season three thanks to tweets about the game’s development.

Will Apex Legends Season 4 have new weapons?

Like the new characters, new weapons have been a staple in the release of new seasons. We’ve already seen the L-Star and Charge Rifle join the fray, and they’ll likely be joined by another in the near future.

What that will be, however, remains up in the air considering we’ve seen a handful of weapon leaks but not many actually being released.

How much will the Apex Legends Season 4 battle pass cost?

The battle passes for all three previous seasons cost 950 Apex Coins - so you’ll probably have to pick up 1,000 from the store for £7.99/$10 for season four as well. 

You can keep ahold of the free currency that can be claimed through battle pass progression and use that too, provided you haven’t spent it already. 

So, while not everything has been announced just yet, that’s what we know about Apex Legends season four so far. 

We’ll keep this post updated as Respawn drop some more hints and confirmed news throughout season three.
