The highly-anticipated Apex Legends Season 8 update is all set to arrive next month on February 2. The gaming studio has confirmed that the Apex Legends update will be rolled out just when the first-person shooter battle royale completes its second anniversary, indicating that the season launch will certainly be a major one. The new Apex Season 8 has been called Mayhem and it will feature tons of new content including a new legend, new weapons, and a lot more. The official Apex Legends Season 8 patch notes will be available at the time of release. However, the gaming company has already given fans a look at some of the new content that will be arriving in Season 8.
Here's a look at everything set to arrive in Apex Legends Season 8:
Game developers have confirmed that Apex Legends is all set to get its 16th Legend and he will be called "Fuse". A few leaks have recently revealed that the legend will have an Airburst Grenade tactical ability and The Motherlode ultimate ability. However, his passive ability is not yet known.
Along with a new character, Respawn is also bringing some new weapons for the next season. The 30-30 Repeater is one of the first weapons that have been confirmed to arrive in the game. It is a lever-action rifle that has been designed for mid and long-range combats. There will obviously be tons of more weapons in the upcoming season. However, the 30-30 Repeater is the only gun confirmed to arrive.
The King's Canyon map is set to receive a major overhaul for the Apex Legends Season 8 update. This will be a huge revamp, however, the gaming studio is yet to reveal the exact changes for the map.
Along with all the new content arriving in Season 8, there will also be a new Battle Pass for the fans. The latest Battle Pass is said to include a bunch of Legendary skins, along with Apex packs, and several items, however, nothing has been confirmed yet.
Apex Legends is now available across various platforms which include the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. The first-person shooter is also scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch sometime later this year.
