With Season 3: Meltdown slowly winding down in Apex Legends, fans are already looking ahead to when the first in-game teaser for Season 4 will appear.

Nearly three months have passed since Apex Legends: Season 3 was released in early October, which means Season 4 shouldn’t be too far away.

However, if Respawn Entertainment continue what they’ve done with the previous three seasons, the fourth one won’t just be released out of the blue. Instead, there will more than likely be in-game teasers added in first, slowly building up to the new season’s launch.

Ahead of both Season 2 and 3, there were clues added to the map as early as a few weeks prior that gave players an inkling of what to expect.

Assuming that’ll probably be the case again for Season 4, that then begs the question for when the first teaser for it will be released.

History of previous Apex Legends teasers

In order to get an accurate approximation of when to expect the first Season 4 teaser, it’s important to look at the timeline Respawn used to build up both Season 2 and 3.

The first Season 2 teaser came in the form of the giant creatures called Leviathans moving close to the mainland of Kings Canyon, three weeks before the season kicked off. A week later, Flyers were seen around the map, and players could shoot them down for loot.

The final teaser came a week before the season started, as the giant Repulsor tower began rotating and Crypto’s laptop appeared on the map for the first time.

Season 3’s set of teasers followed a very similar schedule. Three weeks ahead of its release, the Crypto live hack event took place, during which the then-unreleased Legend attempted to electronically take over Kings Canyon.

The second teaser, again two weeks prior to the start of the season, was Crypto himself making an appearance for the first time ever. Unlike Season 2, however, there was no solid third teaser.

When will the first Season 4 teaser be added?

According to the current Battle Pass, Season 3 is scheduled to end on February 3, 2020, with Season 4 kicking off on February 4 – the exact one-year anniversary of the game’s release.

This means that Season 3 will last a total of four months, a whole month longer than the first two seasons. If we apply the timetable discussed above to this information, the estimated date for when the first Season 4 teaser should appear is sometime around January 14, three weeks before the scheduled release date.

A visual explanation for all of this can be found in the video below, courtesy of YouTuber ‘TheGamingMerchant.’

All of this, of course, is speculation purely based on what Respawn have done for previous seasons, so these dates can end up not being correct if Respawn decide to go with other options.

It must be noted that, for Season 1, the first and only real teaser came only four days before the launch, although Respawn have learned to be a lot more elaborate with their build-ups since then.

Apex Legends is adding a no-guns LTM in Season 7: Olympus Preview

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
