When does Apex Legends Season 16 come out? Update time, Season 15 end date, more
Apex Legends Season 16 is rapidly approaching and is promising to shake up all that’s established in Respawn’s battle royale. So, here’s when the Season 16 update will release, and what is in it.
Apex Legends Eclipse is finally coming to a close and the community has their eyes firmly fixed on the next major update.
While Season 15 brought the brand-new Legend Catalyst, a new Broken Moon map, and sticker cosmetics for healing items, Season 16 looks like it’s going to completely shift the meta.
With remastered Legend classes, a new weapon, and a fresh game mode, Respawn is looking to knock it out of the park with Revelry.
So, let’s check out exactly when Season 16 is arriving in Apex Legends and break down all the exciting content that’s coming with the patch.
Apex Legends Season 16 update time and date
Season 16 of Apex Legends will start on Tuesday, February 14 – aka Valentine’s day. The update time for the new season is 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT.
Season 15, Eclipse, launched on November 1, 2022, alongside a new seasonal battle pass. As has become typical, the battle pass’ countdown timer tells us when the current season will end and the subsequent one will begin.
The 15th season was much longer than normal though, meaning rather than around 90 days, it’s 105. This is slightly longer than a typical Apex Legends season but, taking the holidays into account, it works out roughly as equal to most.

What’s coming in the Apex Legends Season 16 update?
For starters, Apex Legends Season 16 is breaking the trend of a typical major patch by not including a new Legend. Respawn devs have revealed that this decision was made in order to make a shift from the “predictable” updates and instead focus on refining the abilities of the legends they already have on the roster.
Despite no new face in the Outlands, the powerful Nemesis AR weapon will be arriving on the ground to rival the Flatline and R-301. Not only that, a fresh 6v6 Team Deathmatch game mode is being added that tasks teams with racking up 30 kills to win a round.
Another huge addition is the Firing Range overhaul, which aims to improve the arena by adding infinite ammo, dynamic stats, and better dummy targets.
Finally, the fan-favorite Mirage Voyage POI will also be making a return but this time, it’s going to be on every map. This means if you’re looking for a chaotic start and plenty of high-tier loot, it may be the best place for you to land.
So, there you have it, that’s exactly when Season 16 starts in Apex Legends, and all the new content you can expect to arrive on February 14, 2023.
