Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends is heading into its third season, and the new additions it’s planning were….not new by the time their trailer hit this weekend, due to the usual leaks. But try to act surprised.
Season 3 of Apex Legends is subtitled “Meltdown,” and the new area is appropriately themed. Called World’s Edge, it’s a harsh world of molten fire and chemical ice. To help you survive, a new weapon — the Charge Rifle — clears a path with its directed-energy beams. Then there’s the new Legend, Crypto, a quiet genius whose skills with technology make him formidable.
There are those who might want to know more about Crypto, and there are those who won’t care and will simply main him (or maim him, whichever). Respawn put out a new Stories from the Outlands video shortly before their Season 3 trailer; view it below to learn what Crypto’s about.
You can also expect the new Battle Pass to hit the same day as the rest of this, which includes over 100 new items including Legendary Skins and Apex Packs. Season 3 of Apex Legends begins October 1.
Apex Legends Season 3 – Meltdown is arriving on October 1 and will be introducing a ton of new content including the new Legend, Crypto, the new deadly Charge Rifle, a new Battle Pass and completely new map with “World’s Edge.” This all-new arena adds even more dynamic action to every competition from its towering skyscrapers “frozen” by a chemical explosion, to a train that moves across the hostile landscape, to deadly pits of molten lava and hot air-geysers that launch players through the sky.
