During EA’s day-long pre-E3 livestream event the company finally revealed what we’ve all been waiting for: information on Apex Legends‘ second season.
Excitingly, one of the things we can expect is apparently dragons, which is definitely going to spice things up in the free-to-play battle royale.
As shown in the background of some of the footage shown of the game, dragons can be seen flying around, but it’s not clear how they’ll come into play – or if they’re just cosmetic somehow.
As for the rest of Season 2, well it looks very promising!
In a press statement, EA and Respawn Entertainment said: “Apex Legends™ Season 2 – Battle Charge will debut on July 2 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC via Origin.
“The next season of the massively popular battle royale game will introduce an electrifying new Legend, a ranked mode, a fresh Battle Pass complete with daily and weekly challenges, and much more (you didn’t expect Kings Canyon to look the same forever, did you?).”
The new character entering the mix is Natalie “Wattson” Paquette, who’s described as follows: “After growing up in and around the Apex Arena, Wattson brings her familiarity with Kings Canyon and electrical engineering to the battle.
“She controls the flow of battle with high-voltage barriers and a pylon that blocks incoming ordinance – anyone who underestimates her is in for a shock.”
Season 2 will also have a brand-new mode, Ranked 1.0, in which players will be matched by skill as they compete to reach the top of six individual tiers (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator).
You can earn “exclusive cosmetics and rewards at the end of each season” based on your success.
There’s also a “new and improved Battle Pass,” which Respawn has said is “full of fresh rewards, special challenges, even more Legendary skins, the ability to earn crafting metal, three entirely new content categories, and more.”
Really though I just need to know…what’s with the dragons?!
