It’s finally here. After a long wait, the second season of Apex Legends is live and ready to go across all platforms. The season is promising some big shake ups, which we’ve been covering. From dinosaurs, to a major shift in the map, to challenges, and a new ranked mode, Respawn Entertianment hopes to give the game a shot in the arm, and we’ve got all the changes described in detail now.

Apex Legends launched earlier in the year to some massive buzz, but unfortunately was unable to maintain that momentum, as the game had a very steep fall since its initial release. EA and Respawn hope the new season will step that back up, and it comes with a lot of changes. From the ones we mentioned above to a new Legend, Wattson. It also includes big changes to characters and weapons. We’ve got a partial list of the changes below, or you can go here for the full thing.

Apex Legends is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Season 2 is live now across all platforms.

BATTLE PASS

To get the Battle Pass, jump into Apex Legends and head to the Battle Pass tab in the store. Grab the Battle Pass for 950 Apex Coins or the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins (containing 4,700 Apex Coins’ worth of content!), and you’re all set.

CHALLENGES

Take on Daily and Weekly Challenges to score bonus Battle Pass XP and level up even faster. Read more here.
