Season 2 begins July 2, 2019.
The second season of Apex Legends is live, and there are a host of new changes in Kings Canyon. There’s new Legend with Wattson, some quality of life changes, and of course, an all-new Battle Pass.
Although a new Legend and Battle Pass are the two biggest additions to Apex Legends Season 2, they’re hardly the only new things. The map has been changed in interesting ways, and the large beasts known as Leviathans are now roaming the canyon. For all the new changes to Kings Canyon, check out our Everything New in Apex Legends Season 2 video below.
The new season also brings with it a long-awaited new character. Natalie “Wattson” Paquette arrives in Apex Legends with an arsenal of electric abilities. Wattson can also build fences using pylons which should create interesting new strategies in the meta. Check out a brand new Wattson trailer from Respawn Entertainment.
Also new this season is Apex Legends’ first ranked mode. Players can compete to climb through six tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator. Climbing the ranks unlocks exclusive cosmetics at the end of the season, and lets you flex your Apex Legends prowess. Lastly, there’s also a new Battle Pass complete with Daily and Weekly Challenges, which can be purchased for 2800 Apex Coins.
Original story follows:
Two new Apex Legends trailers showcase what is in store for Season 2 of Respawn’s battle royale game, including gameplay of the new Legend Wattson, Leviathans and Titanfall’s Flyers in Kings Canyon, as well as an EMP attack on Repulsor.
The first trailer is focused on the story behind Season 2, and includes Bangalore, Mirage, Octane and the newest legend, Wattson. The aforementioned EMP blast destroys a large tower that was keeping out the Flyers and Leviathans, and they are now invading the playable area of Kings Canyon.

The second trailer is much more focused on gameplay and details what players can expect from Apex Legends: Season 2. We get our first look at Kings Canyon following the EMP blast, with some areas destroyed and others growing vegetation.
We also see the Flyers and Leviathans in action, as well as rewards from the new Battle Pass, the new Weapon – L-Star, new Skydive emotes, the new Ranked League, and a good look at Wattson in action.
