In the upcoming Lost Treasures event for Apex Legends, a hero or two will be getting some fine-tuning, and Octane will be among them. A Respawn developer confirmed on Twitter the speedster is getting buffed when the event begins on Tuesday. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Jason McCord, Design Director at Respawn Entertainment, stated Octane would be getting buffs, but it won't be a complete rework of the character. "He's not getting a rework. He's getting some buffs though," McCord tweeted, stating in a further reply: "Yep, Octane getting some love on Tuesday." The battle royale's fast-on-his-feet legend was added in March 2019, but in recent seasons he's been one of the weaker members of the roster. In the patch notes for Season 5, EA noted the buff on Octane's launch-pad was the "first step in pushing more team utility" for the Battle Royale's resident speedrunner, so it sounds like Lost Treasures will bring the second step in what will be a broader tightening of his strengths and abilities.

Apex Legends is still squarely in the middle of Season 5, but that doesn’t mean that today’s EA Play event is lacking news for Respawn’s battle royale. Lost Treasures launches on June 23 and brings with it a new collection event, a retooled LTM, and a notable new gameplay feature in mobile respawn beacons.
Respawn’s take on the burgeoning genre of battle royale games has proved its staying power, and now Apex Legends is marching toward its fifth season. The usual new character and battle pass will both make their debut with the launch, along with a host of wilder changes. Now, it’s time to start the countdown to the Apex Legends Season 5 release time.
The latest Apex Legends trailer reveals a fresh look at Season 5, and in addition to the usual new character and map changes, it looks like we’re getting a whole new way to play the game, too. The Season Quest system teased in previous reveals appears to tie into a new PvE mode, where you’ll do battle with the Prowler beasts introduced back in Bloodhound’s Trials.
The next round of Apex Legends content is coming soon, and today Respawn has provided a fresh trailer for Fortune’s Favor. The new look at Apex Legends Season 5 is all cinematics – no gameplay – but it does provide a much more concrete look at the new character: master thief Loba Andrade. Here’s what we can glean about those Loba abilities.
Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor has officially been unveiled ahead of its start on May 12. We’ve got the expected additions of a new battle pass, the next ranked series, and a new Legend – this time it’s Loba, a master thief – but there’s also a mysterious new addition called the ‘Season Quest.’
The next big Apex Legends update is coming soon, and while it does make the usual addition of some cool limited-time content, the big news is the addition of some long-requested permanent modes. Now we’ve got one final trailer ahead of the update, so it’s time to start counting down to the Apex Legends The Old Ways release time.
There’s a brand-new lore event headed to Apex Legends next week. Titled ‘The Old Ways’, the battle royale game’s next in-game extravaganza sees “one of the greatest game hunters the Frontier has ever seen, Bloodhound […] receive their own Town Takeover on World’s Edge”. You’ll need to follow Bloodhound’s trail and take on the “ferocious prowlers” to grab some sweet, high-tier loot.
Apex Legends gets a major new item and limited-time mode in the System Override update, but that’s not all that’s changing on March 3. Respawn has provided patch notes ahead of the update, and they bring a host of meta changes with buffs and nerfs for various legends, and a suite of changes for inventory management aim to kill grenade spam.
There’s another limited-time collection event heading to Apex Legends very soon. Titled ‘System Override’, the event brings a brand new mode with a twist on loot respawns, the Evo Shield, and a bunch of other goodies to grab.
