Apex Legends Season 13: Release Date rumours and Everything We Know So Far

Apex Legends Newcastle

Apex Legends Season 13 may still be some time away but there is no harm in looking ahead to what could be on the horizon.

Respawn Entertainment will be looking to celebrate the game’s third anniversary later this year and could have something mind-blowing lined up for fans of the hugely popular first-person shooter, which has quickly become a phenomenon over the course of its life.

In Season 12, we saw an array of new maps, skins and Maggie was introduced as the latest Legend to join the character list. At the very least, we are expecting similar in Season 13.

That being said, what other surprises will Respawn have up their sleeves? Will there be any new games modes, wildlife or new features entirely? It will be interesting to see what the developers, and EA, have in mind.

While information is still significantly limited at this time, scroll down to find out everything we know so far about Apex Legends Season 13.

What we know so far is that Respawn typically release new seasons in Apex every three months.

Of course, this will depend on developmental timeframes so we will update this section of the article as soon as more details are revealed in the coming days, weeks and months ahead.


Leaks

UPDATE 21st March 2022: Developers have hinted that ranked changes could be on the way to Apex Legends in Season 13.

This came from Josh Medina, a senior producer for Respawn and responded to a tweet regarding ranked distribution curves for the likes of Rocket League, Halo and League of Legends.

It was an epic putdown that was clearly criticising Apex on the whole.

Any further leaks will appear in this section in due course.


Who is the New Legend?

At the time of writing, it is not yet known who the new Legend will be in Season 13.

However, what we are aware of is that Respawn have been working on Season 13 for almost a year now, according to a report last year from Dexerto.

Lead Game Designer Daniel Klein answered questions sent by fans on the game’s official subreddit and provided some insight into Season 13 and what they’ve been working on.

Klein said: “Yes when people ask me about the new weapon I’m like… wait… which one of the ones we’ve been playtesting for a year? Oh, right it’s the bow! Wow, that’s old.

“Character-wise we’re figuring out seasons 13 and 14 at the moment, just to give you an idea. But specifically, the balance changes that people often try to read out of these trailers? We can’t know until we live in the meta. Like ask me what meta changes I want to make next season, and the earliest I could possibly know is two weeks into the season.”


What will be Included in the Season 13 Battle Pass?

Details are yet to be revealed regarding the contents of the Season 13 Battle Pass – and will be added to this section in due course once new information emerges.


Will New Skins be Available in Season 13?

Again, no details are currently circulating regarding new skins in Season 13.

As soon as we find out more on this topic, we will add them here.
