The next season of Apex Legends, Season 15, is set to add a new Legend in Catalyst and a new map on Boreas’ moon. Here’s when Season 15 of Respawn’s battle royale begins and what to expect when it does.
Season 14 added a new sniper Legend, Vantage, a level cap increase after more than two years, and a major update to Kings Canyon. Next up for players is Season 15, called Eclipse.
Apex Legends Season 15 release date
Apex Legends Season 15 will start on November 1 – based on the in-game countdown and the usual launch day of Tuesdays for new seasons. This is also the planned end date for the Fight or Fright event.
The release will stick to Respawn’s three-month time frame for each season of Apex, which has been the same for every season except the third, which lasted just over four months.
Who is the new Legend for Season 15?
Respawn have revealed that the new Season 15 Legend is ‘Catalyst’. She brings the new Ferro Fluid to the Apex Games and boasts a host of abilities related to the mysterious liquid. Specifically, they are:
- Passive: Barricade – Catalyst can reinforce doors with her ferrofluid, making them harder to destroy
- Tactical: Piercing Spikes – Catalyst can set up a ferrofluid trap, slowing enemies caught in it.
- Ultimate: Dark Veil – Catalyst can erect a tall and wide wall of ferrofluid, blocking vision and scans, and blinding enemies that walk through it.
She also becomes the BR’s first transgender character and, in the words of voice actor Meli Grant, was designed as “inescapably trans.”

New Broken Moon map in Season 15
It’s also now confirmed that there will be a new map in Season 15, taking us to Cleo, the moon of Outlands planet Boreas.
Boreas is the home of Seer and also the home of Catalyst. This will be a totally unique environment from everything else we’ve had in Apex Legends so far.
We’ve now had a full rundown of its design and size, more comparable to World’s Edge than Storm Point.
There’s even more to get excited about, though. Gifting, Stickers and a fresh Battle Pass will drop with Season 15, as well as the usual weapon tuning and bug fixes.
