Season 6 Launch Trailer

Check out the season 6 launch trailer featuring Apex's newest legend Rampart!

New Map Teasers

In the below image you will notice that an engine has been placed rather awkwardly onto the map. Players have noted this is the third map in the season teasers for the potential of a new map coming this season.

 

This is not the only map teaser we have seen in the leadup to the new season. 

A crane has appeared on the Worlds Edge map at the Sorting Factory, south of the Fuel Depot.

The orange crane is holding a piece of machinery, almost as if something is being built.

The first teaser we saw on the map was an advertisement of Hammond Robotics that started appearing all over the map.

Keen fans of the game have reckoned there is going to be some sort of rocket built in the coming days!

 

Anything Else

Respawn has been rather quiet in the leadup to the new season, as expected.

However, new teasers are appearing every day; and with the new season launch trailer releasing just a few days ago, we can suspect more news soon!
