Apex Legends Season 11 - New Legend Leaked, Teasers Live on Olympus

Apex Legends Season 10 may have only just begun, but we're already looking at what's next. Don't worry, you've got plenty of time to climb the Apex Legends ranked leaderboard (or Arenas' ranked mode, if that's more your thing) before the seasons change, but it's better to be prepared, right? After all the Apex Legends Season 11 release date is only days away. Quite a lot of days, but that's besides the point.

We'll likely get a new character to add to our Apex Legends tier list, but after Seer came in so strong, we're not sure if we're ready just yet. The best guns will get some balance changes, and we might even get a new hop-up or whole new weapon if we're really lucky. However, after Season 10's map updates, players are expecting big things from Season 11. They might just be in luck.

Apex Legends Season 11 Latest News

Here's the latest news and rumours regarding Apex Legends Season 11:

More Apex Legends Season 11 Teasers Due Soon

According to dataminer KralRindo, more teasers for Apex Legends Season 11 will be dropping in October. Here are the dates of the teasers:

  • October 14
  • October 16
  • October 18
  • October 20

This appears to be during the Apex Legends Monsters Within event, but we'll keep you updated with what the teasers are and what map they're appearing on.

Season 11 Teaser Live On Olympus

The first Season 11 teaser is live! A small craft has appeared in the North East corner of Olympus. Despite looking like something from Red Dwarf, it could have huge lore repercussions. We know that Bloodhound is getting a lore event in Season 10, but it looks like Bangalore could be in for some lore, too. Here's where the craft is located:

Bangalore has a new voice line regarding the craft, which bears plenty of IMC logos. Chances are this could pertain to her brother, who went MIA while fighting for the IMC.

"Huh. This looks like... no. No way. Can't be," she says.

As Shrugtal points out, the screens in the ship could provide us with the future Season 11 teasers, as this craft tries to connect with its mothership - which is potentially on Gaea, where the new map is probably set.

Bangalore mains (that includes you, Shiv), you're in for a treat next season!

Apex Legends Loba Edition

Every season brings a new edition of Apex Legends. Aimed at new players, these editions offer a handful of exclusive cosmetics to kickstart your game. Take a look at her secret agent-themed 'Arms Dealer' skin, courtesy of dataminer Shrugtal:

Here's a short video of everything you get in the package, too:


ALGS Year 2

The Apex Legends Global Series Year 2 begins during Season 10, but continues through to Season 11, so any changes to the battle royale will impact the esports scene.

EA has already started a search for the next ALGS broadcaster, but as Year 2 qualification kicks off soon we'll have much more news to bring you on this front.


New Heirloom

With Rampart receiving the most recent Apex Legends heirloom during her Town Takeover event, the recipient of Season 11's heirloom is still up in the air.

While many believed Crypto was next in line for an heirloom (and concepts suggest he could be getting a cool Jikdo sword), it now looks like Wattson could be next in line. Both characters could do with a little buff to take him off the bottom of our tier list, so we'd like to see an heirloom come along with a rework.

Tap Strafing Removed

Tap strafing was a high-level movement technique that the best players could utilise when playing with mouse and keyboard. It was an unintended feature of Apex Legends since day one, but developer Respawn has finally decided that enough is enough.

However, pro players and streamers are not happy with the change. Even Nick 'NICKMERCS' Kolcheff, a newbie on the Apex Legends scene, had words to say about the change despite the fact it would hardly affect him as he plays on controller.

The patch will also fix the game's most annoying shield swap bug, so keep your eyes on the Apex Legends patch notes to see when it drops.

Apex Legends Season 11 may launch with a new map that looks like this: a building overran with cherry blossom trees from Titanfall 2.

New Map

Datamines suggest that a new map might be on the way! Based on a tropical island paradise, players suspect it may be based on the planet Gaea, which the Legends visited in Season 9. Thanks to Shrugtal for spotting this in the game's files.

From muddy Tridents to AI wildlife and clifftop sounds, an island getaway sounds like what we all need in Season 11. Check out our Apex Legends new map guide for all the information, datamines, and art from Tropic Island.

Cryo Grenade

Season 10 gave us the Prowler back as floor loot and the Rampage LMG was added to the game, but it looks like we could be getting a new throwable next time around.

Apex Legends' Cryo Grenade won't freeze opponents - that would be broken - but it looks like a combination of the Arc Star and Thermite. Check the guide for a more thorough explanation, but it could be a great addition to the game.


Apex Legends Season 11 Release Date

Apex Legends Season 11 releases on November 2. This is based on an estimation of when Season 10 will finish, and is of course subject to change.

It also gives you plenty of time to level up your Battle Pass and finish your business with Season 10 before the new season is upon us.

Apex Legends Season 11 New Legend

As we get close to the Season 11 release date, it looks increasingly likely that Ash will be entering the Apex Games. Yes, that Ash, from Titanfall 2 and Arenas.

The next character in Apex Legends, Ash, was leaked by dataminer Garret. She has Holosprays and abilities in the game files - and although it's difficult to decipher exactly what these do at the moment, it pretty much points to Ash being the Season 11 Legend.

New Battle Pass System?

Back in May, EA filed a patent for a new type of Battle Pass, one which has multiple routes and options to choose your rewards. This "non-linear map" was first reported by VG247, and could potentially see use in Apex Legends, as one of EA's premier live service games.

The Battle Pass itself could have a jungle theme to match the new map, but we'll have to wait until nearer the time to find out more.

That's everything we know about Apex Legends Season 11 so far. Keep checking back for the latest news.
