If you want to try out a new character in Apex Legends, right now you’ve got no choice but to do that with the pressure of actually playing the live game. If you, like me, are terrified of letting down your teammates while you try to figure out when that ult is more useful, Respawn finally has a solution: a proper training mode.

Caustic is Apex Legends’ stinkiest hero, and he’s not a popular pick – his abilities are limited to a gas trap and grenade that work more as area denial tools than direct damage dealers. Nevertheless, one Apex Legends player pulled off a full squad wipe using only those special skills, and he orchestrated it so that the feat went down in the toilet.
We got a look at Apex Legends’ upcoming character Crypto in his backstory trailer, which dropped last week. A new trailer, this for Apex Legends Season 3, provides a glimpse at how he’s getting along with his new teammates. And how is that? Well, let’s just say he’s not exactly chatty.
Apex Legends season 3 has been the subject of plenty of leaks over the past few weeks, and today developer Respawn has confirmed what you can expect from the new release and when you’ll see it land. Season 3 is officially called Meltdown, and it will release on October 1 – compete with a new legend, new battle pass, and new weapon.
Apex Legends will kick off its next limited time event this week. Voidwalker, focusing on Wraith’s backstory, will begin September 3 and run through September 17, and during that time you’ll be able to earn (or buy) new premium loot, which includes a cool new skin for Wraith.
Respawn Entertainment has issued an apology for the way it set up the Iron Crown limited-time collection event in Apex Legends, which made loot boxes – Apex Packs – the only way to obtain certain exclusive items. Drew McCoy, Apex Legends’ project lead, wrote a blog post acknowledging the company had “missed the mark” with the event and apologised for “breaking our promise.”
Apex Legends has been focused on three-person squads ever since launch, but that’s about to change – temporarily, at least. A proper solo mode will hit alongside the upcoming Iron Crown Collection event on August 13. This appears to be the “fan-requested feature” that EA started teasing in its financial report last week. (Sadly, it’s not my most-requested feature, so Titans will have to wait.)
It looks like fans of Respawn’s battle royale Apex Legends might be in for a treat. Publisher EA has just announced in its first quarter fiscal 2020 earnings call that something pretty exciting is heading to the game in the next few weeks – “one of the most fan-requested features” since its launch.
During a light-hearted sparring on Twitter with KFC’s Gaming channel (yes, this is a real thing), and some commenters responding to its meme-d nudging of Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends developer Rayme Vinson stated that the studio’s team has been “growing since launch”, and that they’ve “got tons of stuff coming”.
