When is the Apex Legends Season 20 release date? With Season 19: Ignite having brought many welcome changes to the hit battle royale, including a new Legend, map reworks, long-awaited buffs, and even changes to the competitive scene, Apex Legends Season 20 can hopefully build on this momentum further. So, here’s all the latest information ahead of the Apex Season 20 release date.
Apex Legends fans have been eating well recently, and Season 20 will look to carry on that trend. It’s got a tough act to follow, but new Apex seasons are rarely underwhelming these days – it’s largely why its considered one of the best battle royale games and best FPS games out there right now. But what can players expect? Here’s everything we know about Apex Season 20 so far.
Apex Legends Season 20 release date
The Apex Legends Season 20 release date is Tuesday, February 13, 2024, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 5 PM GMT, based on the in-game battle pass timer for the current Season, Ignite. This continues the tradition of Apex Seasons lasting around three months.
While it’s possible there could be delays, as this has happened in the past (Season 3, for example, lasted 126 days), Respawn more often than not sticks to this rigid three month cadence when it comes to release new seasonal content. Thankfully, this makes it predictable and gives players plenty of time to finish their battle passes before time runs out.
Apex Legends Season 20 news and updates
Respawn has yet to reveal any of the upcoming changes and new additions in Apex Season 20, though we expect there will be further tweaks to Apex Legends ranks, a new or reworked legend, loot rotations, and, of course a brand-new battle pass to grind through.
If we’re lucky, we could even see a new weapon coming in Apex Legends Season 20, as the last addition was the Nemesis Burst AR all the way back in Season 16. While weapon reworks and balance changes are nice, and certainly necessary for the overall health of the game, it doesn’t quite compare to a brand-new gun. These can drastically shake up the meta, almost to the same extent that new heroes impact the Apex Legends tier list.
In a similar vein, brand new maps have been added to Apex every four or five seasons, and Respawn hasn’t released an all-new map since Broken Moon in Season 15. If it’s sticking to the usual cadence, we’re due a fresh location, although there is still plenty of scope to rework one of the game’s existing five battle royale maps.
There have been a handful of Apex Legends Season 20 leaks that suggest which event and battle pass skins we can expect to see.
Currently, leaks point towards the following Apex Season 20 Battle Pass skins:
- Bangalore – Legendary
- Valkyrie – Legendary
- Lifeline – Legendary
- Rampart – Legendary
- Ash – Epic
- Crypto – Epic
- Fuse – Epic
- R-99 – Epic
- Prowler – Epic
If these leaks turn out to be true, then this would mean that Rampart is getting two skins back to back, which is obviously great news for Rampart fans. On the other hand, Catalyst is one of the most popular heroes and yet has only received two Legendary skins over the past year, not including a recolor. So, we can only hope that a new Catalyst skin is on the way in Apex Season 20 to balance the scales.
As for the Apex Legends Season 20 event skins, leaks suggest that we’ll be getting the following skins:
- Newcastle – Legendary
- Vantage – Legendary
- Wraith – Legendary
- Newcastle – Epic
- Vantage – Epic
- Valkyrie – Epic
- Mirage – Epic
- Nemesis – Epic
- Triple-Take – Epic
- Peacekeeper – Epic
- Bocek – Epic
- Pathfinder – Rare
Again, it’s a hard time for Catalyst mains that seemingly won’t be getting any love during S20. However, Newcastle and Vantage players in particular should have a lot to look forward to, with two new skins potentially coming in an event.
Well, that’s everything you need to know about the upcoming update ahead of the Apex Legends Season 20 release date. In the meantime, read up on how the Apex Legends Post Malone skins could be the start of a Fortnite-esque trend in what is arguably one of the best games on the market today. Otherwise, you could take a break and play all the new PS5 games and new Xbox games coming out before the new Season arrives.
