The abrupt release of Apex legends back in February took the video game industry by storm as possibly the next title to dethrone Epic games’ Fortnite as the most popular battle royale title. But following the initial hype and into Season 1 of the game’s content drop, the game has suffered greatly compared to when the title first caught public eye.
While Season 1 did introduce the latest addition of the adrenaline junkie Octane, it still did not hold players enough in comparison to the caliber of content Epic Games continually unloads into their battle royale. The issue taken to the extent where Respawn Entertainment decided to halt all development on their unannounced Titanfall project to fully pursue development towards Apex Legends.
Now, according to the latest earnings call for Electronic Arts, it was revealed that the full glimpse of what Respawn has in store for the approaching second season will be showcased at this year’s EA Play livestream. EA CEO Andrew Wilson on the subject for Apex Legends’ Season 2:
We’re now very focused on delivering for this massive global community with a long-term live service, including new seasons with more robust Battle Pass content, new legends, and exciting evolutions to the in-game environment.
Atop of the initiative to bring more content and drive for players to continue playing Apex Legends, the first piece of information regarding Season 2 has also been revealed earlier this week. In the latest news post from the developer, it reveals that Season 2 will introduce both daily and weekly challenges which will assist in leveling up your rank for the respected battle pass.
As well as sharing that the approaching season will implement a rewards system which will be triggered every 25 levels. When climbing up the ranked ladder, you will be rewarded with legendary items to decorate the roster of legends.
Respawn has also announced that Season 1 pass owners will receive both the Honored Prey R-301 weapon cosmetic and Night Terror Wraith skin. And also detailed that a limited-time event dubbed as the Legendary Hunt will be dropping into King’s Canyon which will require some of the most competitive players to pursue to close out the first season.
Speculating on the previous rumors that have surfaced early on in when Apex was still fresh out of the box, it was leaked via dataminers that Titanfall-based submachinegun the CAR could be coming to the game. Hopefully we will see that this approaching season.
Apex Legends is out now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
