Get ready to drop into a new season, Legends! Apex Legends Season 20 is nearing its end, and with it comes the exciting anticipation for Season 21. Here’s a breakdown of everything we know so far:

About Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a free-to-play hero shooter battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Released in February 2019, the game features online multiplayer battles where pre-made teams of three players with unique abilities fight to be the last squad standing. Since its release, Apex Legends has grown significantly, receiving continual updates with new Legends, weapons, maps, and gameplay modes.

Apex Legends Season 21 Release Date

While Respawn hasn’t officially confirmed, the in-game battle pass points to May 6th, 2024, as the season finale for Season 20. Following past trends, Season 21 should kick off on the same day, potentially around 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST. However, unforeseen circumstances might cause a slight delay.

New Legend Alter

Leaks suggest that Alter, the highly anticipated new Legend, will be the star of Season 21. Here’s a sneak peek at their abilities:

  • Passive: Gift from the Rift: Alter can loot deathboxes for items (excluding armor) without getting close, a huge tactical advantage.
  • Tactical: Void Passage: This ability allows Alter to create temporary portals through solid surfaces, perfect for surprising flanks and quick escapes.
  • Ultimate: Void Nexus: Alter creates a temporary anchor point. Teammates can then activate it remotely to teleport back, enabling strategic regrouping or daring maneuvers.

Permanent Modes

Season 21 might bring back beloved limited-time game modes or introduce entirely new ones. Leaks suggest Respawn might be adding permanent Solos and Quads options to the core battle royale experience. While these leaks remain unconfirmed, such additions could significantly increase the variety and appeal of Apex Legends.
