What's coming to Season 8?
With Apex Legends Season 7: Ascension reportedly set to end on February 1, 2021, the internet is already abuzz with rumours and leaks about what Season 8 may bring. As we know, Respawn Entertainment always bring in a new Legend for the advent of any new season, and, in the past, also a new weapon. However, that hasn’t been the case for the past couple of seasons, but that might all be about to change.
Let’s dive into the leaks for Apex Legends Season 8.
APEX LEGENDS SEASON 8 – NEW GUN
Will the CAR SMG finally make an appearance in Season 8? The much-loved speedy shooter from Titanfall 2 (another Respawn title) has been in the game files for a long time, and Season 8 may finally be the time it is released, joining the ranks of other fast-firing SMGs such as the R-99 and Prowler.
APEX LEGENDS SEASON 8 – NEW LEGEND
Every season has a new Legend, and Season 8 will be no different. Many names come up from leakers regarding the new character, from Valk, to Ash, to Fuse. A Reddit post seems to believe that Fuse is the next Legend, an offensive character who is an explosives expert. Apart from throwables, there have never been any explosive weapons in Apex Legends thus far.
The eyepatch-wearing Legend appears to be toting a rocket launcher of some kind.
Blisk is another name being thrown around by dataminers. Kuben Blisk, the creator of the Apex Games, could be making an appearance in his own Battle Royale, if rumours are to be believed.
APEX LEGENDS SEASON 8 – NEW MAP
Probably not, is the answer to this one. Olympus only just joined the map pool in Season 7, so the likelihood of another battleground being added is slim. We could, however, see World's Edge return in an LTM.
APEX LEGENDS SEASON 8 – NEW QUEST
A new season - a new quest. Apex Legends Senior Writer Tom Casiello teased a "big" new quest for Season 8 on Twitter, but joked that Forge would not be appearing.

Apex Legends Season 8 may be mostly in the dark at this point, but 2021 should bring even more leaks, rumours, and teasers for the Respawn Entertainment title.
