Apex Legends has experienced a period of ups and downs since its launch in February. At first, it seemed to be “the next big thing”, capable of reaching 50 million players in the first month of its launch, and even affecting Fortnite’s throne with regards to Twitch streams.
After the launch of the first season, however, interest in the game began to fade, also thanks to a not so excellent support from Respawn , which in the meantime has also started working on Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order , and some fans they felt almost “abandoned”, in favor of EA’s new title on Star Wars.
Season 2 of Apex Legends, finally arriving today, will attempt to recapture many of the lost fans with lots of new features, such as the arrival of the leviathans, who will bring a lot of destruction to the map, as seen in the trailers of the Season 2 of Apex Legends. Also planned is the introduction of a new legend, Wattson, which has electricity as the main elemental feature.
There will also be the introduction of daily and weekly challenges. As written by Respawn: “We don’t want to include ridiculous challenges that dramatically change the way we play, but there will be challenges that will offer interesting variations and make the game more fun. This addition should also ensure that players can only employ a few hours a week in the game, to still get interesting progress in the Battle Pass “.
As said, the update with which the second season of Apex Legends will be introduced will be online today, around 7 pm Italian time. Get ready because it will be a rather substantial update since we are talking about a file of about 20 GB to download.
You are ready? What do you expect from the news announced by Respawn?
