Respawn has announced Apex Legends Season 3: Meltdown will kick off on 1st October, bringing the new Legend, a new battle pass and Series 2 of Ranked play.
It looks like the leaks we’ve seen so far were accurate. The next Legend will indeed be Crypto and the new season will add in a brand new weapon – the charge rifle – both of which were leaked at a GameStop conference last month.
As expected from datamines, Crypto’s abilities will involve deploying “specialised surveillance drones to stay in the fight and out of the spotlight”. Respawn has also provided a lore trailer for the character, as part of the ‘Stories from the Outlands’ series to give a bit of background on some of the Legends.
