Apex Legends Season 8 is totally demolishing Kings Canyon

When Respawn said last week that the Apex Legends' map Kings Canyon would be "obliterated" in Season 8, I thought perhaps this meant they were going to whack a giant crater somewhere and call it a day. After seeing the new Season 8 launch trailer, I think I wildly underestimated their resolve. Kings Canyon looks like a wasteland.

Apex Legends explosive new character Fuse arrives in Season 8

I can't believe it's been nearly two years since Apex Legends launched. Back then it had only one map and eight characters. Now the battle royale has three cool maps that chop and change as the seasons go by, and 15 (!) Legends. It's not long now until we meet the 16th either. Today, Respawn gave us all our first look at Fuse, an explosive…

Why won’t anyone fight me in Apex Legends’ cool new boxing ring

This week, Apex Legends started its Fight Night event, plonking a great big boxing ring onto the Olympus map. Challenging players to cheeky boxing matches has always been a fun part of Apex, so I was pretty excited to jump into an official ring right in the middle of Respawn's battle royale. Unfortunately, a mere two days after the boxing ring appeared, no one seems…

Apex Legends challenges you to a spot of boxing in its new event

Meet me in the ring. Not the normal scary Apex Legends death ring though, the boxing ring! Respawn Entertainment are kicking off a new collection event for the battle royale this evening: Fight Night. It's a new town takeover themed around the lovable murderbot Pathfinder, in which players will be stripped of their guns and face-off in fisticuffs. A new game mode is joining the…

Apex Legends winter event brings back its best feature – the train

A few months ago, Apex Legends cruelly took away the train, the best bit of its World's Edge map, leaving us with nothing but boring stationary ground to fight on. Man, the train was amazing. Oh how I loved the rush of dropping onto that speedy death tube, wading through the gas of six Caustics in an attempt to find loot. It's a buzz we'll…

Apex Legends dev wants to bring Wraith “under control” in Season 8

I have some bad news for all you Wraith mains out there. Not only have her abilities been nerfed and her Naruto-style run taken away, now it sounds like Respawn plan on making her even easier to shoot in Season 8. A developer says they want to bring the most popular Apex Legends character "under control" next season, potentially increasing her hitbox. It's not all…

Apex Legends glitch lets you launch vehicles across the map

Deals deals deals! Just kidding - I interrupt your regularly scheduled Black Friday posts to bring you some delightful Apex Legends japes. Today in "what daft thing has Imogen done in a multiplayer shooter now", I had a go at replicating a glitch that throws Apex's new vehicles across the map. Actually, "launch" is probably a better word to use than "throw", because pulling off…

Apex Legends reduces battle pass grind… again

Apex Legends' seventh season added in lovely things like a new map and character. However, it also brought about some rather unwelcome changes to the game's battle pass, making it superbly grindy to level up. Respawn Entertainment made it so the XP required to gain a level was substantially higher than previous seasons. After a lot of backlash, they recognised the issue and made attempts…

Apex Legends director “refuses to crunch” on faster updates

Apparently, Apex Legends doesn't update fast enough for some people? Coulda fooled me, considering the last year has already brought us a new map, new variations on old maps, three new characters and a bloody car. Even so, don't expect Respawn to pick up the pace anytime soon. This week, game director Chad Grenier explained that the studio simply isn't willing to crunch in order…

Apex Legends has improved battle pass progression, barely

Apex Legends' seventh season dropped this week, and with it came a load of fun new things - a map, a character and even a vehicle. But it also brought some big changes to how the battle pass works. Unfortunately, these changes made the battle pass a whole lot more difficult to level up, making players need to do about twice the amount of work…

Apex Legends has arrived on Steam with Season 7

Apex Legends has a cute new character, a lush new map and a cool vehicle now. Oh, and it's on Steam, too. The battle royale’s seventh season, Ascension, launched last night, dropping players on Olympus. It's a gorgeous city in the sky with wide open spaces that are ripe for chasing down enemy squads in Apex's first vehicle, the Trident.As well as all this, the…

You can preload Apex Legends on Steam right now

Remember when Respawn said Apex Legends would launch on Steam on November 4th? Well, that's not entirely true for folks here in the UK. For us, Apex lands on Steam alongside its seventh season at 4am GMT (a much more convenient time of 8pm PT for our US pals). Fortunately, the free-to-play battle royale is already available for preload on Valve's store, so at least…

Apex Legends trailer shows off season 7’s new Olympus map and drivable vehicles

We've already been introduced to Apex Legends' next character: a Scottish genius named Horizon with a very sad backstory. In today's trailer, you can get a gander at the new map, some of Horizon's abilities, and those floaty vehicles you'll be able to drive around the cloud city. Catch all the booms and bants inside.

Apex Legends new character might have the saddest backstory yet

I love all these online multiplayer games revealing lore through cool animations, but who gave them the right to make me so dang sad? Apex Legends' brand new video in its Stories From The Outlands series gives a bit of backstory on upcoming Legend Horizon - and it involves leaving her young son at home while she jets off to space to save the world.Sure,…

The best Apex Legends match I’ve had in ages ended in fisticuffs

This week, I had my first Apex Legends boxing match. If you're a fan of the battle royale, you may have seen clips of this phenomenon on social media. It's when squads of total strangers manage to make peace, drop all their guns and armour, and settle their final standoff by throwing hands (and occasionally feet). This will never happen to me, I thought, I'm…

Apex Legends raises wallrunning from the dead for this year’s Fight Or Fright

They're doing it! By god, they're doing it! Apex Legends is gearing up for its big Halloween monster mash - and this time, the demons are crawling all over the goddamn walls. This year's Fight or Fright event is bringing wallrunning back from Titanfall 2, but only for those Legends unfortunate enough to succumb to undeath.

Apex Legends came out two hours late so a developer could finalise his daughter’s adoption

It turns out when Apex Legends came out last year, Respawn released it a couple of hours later than planned. This wasn't down to server issues or last-minute bugs, though. The battle royale's launch was pushed back by two hours because the studio's former lead programmer had a court appointment to finalise his daughter's adoption on the very same morning.

Apex Legends has scrapped Wraith’s Naruto run

Wraith's days of flinging her arms back, leaning her head down, and sprinting like Naruto are over. Apex Legends' Aftermarket event update went live this morning, adding cross-platform multiplayer and a new limited-time game mode. But, more importantly, it also kicked the most popular Legend out of the anime club, giving her a new sprint animation that doesn't hide away her already-tiny hitbox.

Crossplay hits Apex Legends with next week’s Aftermarket event

Months after Respawn let slip that cross-platform multiplayer would be dropping into Apex Legends, we finally know when we'll be able to team up with our console comrades. Beta testing for the feature kicks off alongside the Aftermarket Collection Event next Tuesday, letting you try out the bizarre new Flashpoint LTM with your Xbox and PlayStation pals - assuming they choose to let us PC…
