Apex Legends digs in for a new season with new legend Rampart

Playing defensively rarely pans out in Apex Legends - at least, it's never panned out for me. But then, I've never had a whopping great turreted machine gun to help lock down Skulltown. That's all set to change later this month with the addition of scrappy mechanic Rampart and her life partner Sheila, arriving as part of Apex Legends' sixth season on August 18th. Sheila…

Apex Legends’ crossplay won’t force PC players to match with console

It's a strange new world where this morning's video game news was discovered through TikTok. Respawn dev, Jake Smullin, took to the video sharing platform, as he so often does, to assure players that Apex Legends' upcoming crossplay feature will only put console players in PC lobbies if there's a PC player in their squad. "Have been seeing lots of console players worrying about this…

The great EA exodus is upon us. With Titanfall 2 landing on Steam earlier this year, it's only a matter of time before Apex Legends makes the jump.

Apex Legends new event adds mobile respawn beacons and loads else

Everyone in Apex Legends is a treasure hunter now, and Crypto has a moustache. I clearly haven't been paying enough attention, but this is the backdrop to the "Lost Treasures" event and I'm happy to roll with it - not least because that event adds mobile respawn beacons. It goes live at 4pm BST (8am Pacific), and it's bringing loadsa new cosmetics along with a…

It looks like Apex Legends secret bunkers will open next week

At the start of Apex Legends' fifth season, players witnessed Kings Canyon erupt after new Legend Loba went sneaking through a creepy underground lab. She set off all sorts of alarms and caused the facility to explode, changing the landscape of the map for good.

Apex Legends dev suggests Lifeline may be in line for a rework

As Apex Legends' resident doctor, Lifeline isn't the worst character in the game. Far from it, she's probably one of the better picks of the bunch. But while she's not in a bad place, Respawn do feel she's in a complicated one, and have suggested a "sidegrade" may be due to bring her in line with the rest of the battle royale's colourful murderchums.

Apex Legends is dropping the nighttime Kings Canyon map from rotation because it’s a bit rubbish

Last week, Respawn finally put map rotation into Apex Legends, allowing players to get their fix of both the World's Edge and Kings Canyon maps. It's a feature fans have wanted for ages, except there was one strange inclusion in the rotation - the Kings Canyon at night mode. It's almost exactly the same as the other Kings Canyon map, except, as the name implies,…

The Old Ways takes Apex Legends out hunting, brings back King’s Canyon for good

Apex Legends has some neat characters, sure. But a masked, non-binary big game hunter who's crawled outta Old Norse mythology by way of Chernobyl backed by a pack of crows? I think Bloodhound might take the top spot. This month, Respawn are finally giving Blothhundr their due with The Old Ways, a two-week lore event that finally gives the hunter some worthy prey - and…

Apex Legends data miners have found some big scary doggos in the game’s files

The last patch Apex Legends received was a big 'un, introducing lots of new Apex content hidden away amongst our game files. Not all of it is in use yet, of course, it's just tantalisingly hanging out back there, waiting for a new update to activate it... Or, waiting for a sneaky data miner to take a peek. And peek they have, for those files…
