It's been an exciting day for Apex Legends' fans, as it was also revealed today that a new season is coming, as well as a new Legend. It just goes to show that the game really wants to ensure their second birthday is as big as possible. 

In terms of the 16th legend, he's an Australian called Fuse, and he's featured in a new trailer, which has got us all kinds of excited. On their website, they describe him saying: "Fuse doesn’t lack confidence, but he often lacks a plan. He’s a blow-up-first ask-questions-later kinda guy." His abilities include: 

  • Explosions
  • Firebomb
  • Metal Bomb

They captioned the trailer: "Some friends support your dreams, others have trouble letting go. Journey to Salvo and see if Fuse makes it to the Apex Games in one piece.


Respawn Entertainment has also announced that the eighth season, Mayhem, will go live on February 2, 2021 - two days before the game's second birthday and the day that Apex will reportedly be available on the Switch. Get it in your calendars as this is going to be big!

The new season will also be changing the map, Yes, for the third time Kings Canyon is changing up. On their website, Apex wrote: "Fuse's entrance has dramatically reshaped Kings Canyon. Stay tuned to learn more."

There's also going to be a brand-new weapon, a lever-action rifle called the 30-30 Repeater, described as: "Salvo's most popular weapon, this lever-action rifle picks apart the opposition with hard-hitting rounds."
