APEX LEGENDS SEASON 4 – UPDATE ONE: Apex Legends season 4 is set to launch today, and will bring with it the new hero Revenant.
Apex Legends season 4 has a release date of Tuesday February 4 which will also mark the one-year birthday of the PS4, Xbox One and PC shooter.
A start time hasn’t been confirmed by Respawn but Apex Legends season 4 – which is dubbed Assimilation – is expected to go live around 6pm UK time.
Ahead of the Apex Legends season 4 launch the devs in a blog post have detailed more about what’s coming with the new Battle Pass.
Jason McCord, Design Director on Apex Legends, discussed map changes to Apex Legends season 4 which should keep the game feeling fresh for players.
Here are some of the main points McCord mentioned…
• Devs want each drop, rotation, and gunfight to feels as fresh as possible in Apex Legends season 4
• When you drop into World’s Edge you’ll immediately see the Planet Harvester which has been installed by Hammond Robotics
• This gives players a better sense of directionality and understanding of the centre of the map
• The Planet Harvester itself is a locale “unlike anything else on World’s Edge” and goes new opportunities for gunfights
• Capitol City has been split in two by the Planet Harvester causing lava to spill into the map
• The large fissure caused by the lava can only be crossed in two locations -a zipline, or a fallen skyscraper bridge
• There is a new small POI in the snowy fields between the Epicenter and Skyhook called the Survey Camp
• You will find guaranteed weapons placed on racks in the small buildings of Survey Camp

While in the run-up to the Apex Legends season 4 launch Respawn revealed more about the new Battle Pass in a blog post.
Respawn announced that besides Revenant Apex Legends season 4 will also be bringing with it a brand new weapon, the Sentinel bolt-action sniper rifle.
This has been described as a fast, accurate weapon that lets you dispose of enemies on the battlefield with cold-blooded accuracy.
It was also announced that Apex Legends season 4 will feature a map change midway through it.
The first map will be World’s Edge, with a teaser image shown on the season 4 playing field revealing a change to it.
The lava beneath the ground of Capitol City is now visible, which will reduce the ground areas available to run and loot on.
It remains to be seen if other areas of the map have been affected.
World’s Edge will be playable up until March 23, with King’s Canyon returning on March 24 up until May 5.
Respawn also teased that the Battle Pass “is back and better than ever for Season 4”.
Besides Legendary weapons and skins here’s what can be earned in the Apex Legends season 4 Battle Pass…
• Apex Packs and XP Boosts
• Crafting Metals and Apex Coins
• Music Packs, Loading Screens, Quips and more
And here’s what the Apex Legends team had to say about Revenant: “Revenant used to be human.
“He was the greatest hitman the Mercenary Syndicate ever had. He used to look in the mirror and see his human face looking back.
“But time changes everything, and when his programming finally failed, he saw what he had become at the hands of the Mercenary Syndicate and Hammond Robotics: a walking nightmare of steel and vestigial flesh.
“His masters resurrected him as a simulacrum, snatching him from death’s embrace again and again and programming him to forget.
“Centuries later, all he wants is revenge. Of course, he doesn’t mind eviscerating a few of the Legends along the way.
“He used to need a reason to kill… but he’s not that man anymore.”
