We know it might feel like Apex Legends’ Eclipse update dropped yesterday, but ranked players are more than ready to say goodbye to Broken Moon – the battle royale’s new map. Whether you’re a fan of this new locale or not, you’re going to want to know when the Apex Legends Season 15 Ranked Split 2 start time is set for; this is when the map changes. So, keep reading and we’ll let you know what to expect and when to expect it.
If you’re still trying to climb Apex Legends’ ranks and you want to put yourself in a good position ahead of the next soft reset, you don’t have long to earn more RP. The Apex Legends Season 15 Ranked Split 2 start time is 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 GMT on January 17; this is a little later than initially expected, giving players only one month until the next major update.
Whether you’re someone who lives and dies by an Apex Legends tier list or not, you’ll be pleased to know that the Apex Legends Season 15 Ranked Split 2 map is Olympus. This information was revealed to The Loadout during an interview with lead level designer Jeff Shaw about Apex Legends’ Broken Moon during the launch of Apex Legends’ Eclipse update.
If you’re looking forward to jumping back into one of the best battle royale games out there right now, you should know that there’s going to be another derank during the Apex Legends Season 15 Ranked Split 2. This means everyone is going to drop six divisions when the map changes; this equates to one and a half ranks.
This change drops right in the middle of Apex Legends’ Spellbound event, so there’s still time to pick up some new cosmetics from the latest collection.
If “squeaky bum time” was ever attributable to Apex Legends, this would surely be it. Olympus is a great map, and well worth spending some time playing, but there just isn’t as much time to make back the ranks lost in the Split and progress further before the next major update.
Still, this is one of the best competitive FPS games out there right now for a reason and we have no doubt that players will be able to use their familiarity with the second map to appear during Apex Legends’ Season 15 to their advantage.
