Apex Legends Season 13: Release Date, New Legend, Content
Apex Legends Season 13 might be some time away as of yet, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited about it already. Apex Legends has gone from strength to strength with each new season, so understandably the hype for Season 13 is already beginning to build. But what can we expect from the next season of Apex? And when will it officially begin? Here's everything you need to know about Apex Legends Season 13.

Apex Legend Season 13: Release Date
As it stands there is no official release date for Apex Legends Season 13. However, this usually doesn't come about till a couple of weeks before the end of the latest season. Going by that tradition we can make a rough estimate of when you can expect to jump into a brand new season of content.
At the time of writing, there are five weeks and five days until the final week of challenges unlock, which will land on April 26. These challenges will be open for a week, and typically we get one additional week before the new season launches. That means that we should expect to see Apex Legends Season 13 launch on May 10. The date could shift a week in either direction, but we should be getting a new season in early May either way.
Apex Legends Season 13: New Legends
After a supposed datamine some time back, we have had some idea of the legends that are coming with each of the upcoming seasons, and Apex Legends Season 13 is no different. The newest legend to join the fray is expected to be Blisk. This character is yet another direct link to Titanfall 2, alongside Valkyrie, and is someone who frequently pops up in the Apex lore and Stories from the Outlands trailers from time to time.
As the leader of the Syndicate (the team behind the Apex games), he sure is a dangerous foe to go up against. There is also the potential that Blisk could be scheduled for a later season. However, some eagle-eyed fans spotted what looked like Blisk wearing a jump kit in a recent trailer for Apex Legends Mobile. The jump kit of course is a required piece of tech for any that take part in the Apex Games as it allows them to drop from great heights into each match without, you know, turning to mush as they smack off the ground.
According to leaks from Biast12 back in 2021, Blisk's abilities included the likes of wall-running, harnessing the power of the ring, and the arrival of an auto-titan as his ultimate (finally!). If true, Blisk could be a major shakeup for the battle royale - although it will mark yet another season without a medical option to rival Lifeline.

Apex Legends Season 13: New Content
As the seasons have progressed, players have begun to expect a little more from their seasons than a new legend. And in the last few seasons, Respawn Entertainment have more than delivered. We saw the introduction of the 3v3 PvP mode Arenas, which has become a permanent fixture of the game, a brand new map in the form of Storm Point, and then the limited time mode Control, which brought more traditional 9v9 PvP action to the title for the first time.
What then can we expect or hope for in Apex Legends Season 13? As recently as last month, dataminer Kralrindo dug out what appeared to be a new mode titled "FreeDM", along with the code "killing_spree". We don't know much of anything about it yet, but we know that with Storm Point introduced in Season 11, we aren't expecting a new map for another couple of seasons, so a new mode, if limited like Control, would be a far more reasonable addition to the upcoming season.
Of course, on top of the potential new map, we should expect a new Battle Pass, some possible tweaks to the existing maps. There is also the hope that the Apex Legends next-gen upgrade will finally arrive on consoles.
That's everything we know about Apex Legends Season 13 so far, but be sure to check back in with this article, as we will update it as we know more. In the meantime, discover everything that changed with the ongoing season in our Apex Legends Patch 1.87 guide.
