The second season for Apex Legends has finally arrived and along with it update 1.14 to the game. In the update, there’s a new hero in Wattson, new character customization, and new weapons. As promised, Season 2 is going to have a host of new content for players to unlock through completing the Battle Pass. There are new challenges and new legendary skins to unlock as well as new customization and content in the forms of emotes, music packs, loading screens and character/weapon skins. Those who don’t purchase the Battle Pass can unlock items and access new features as well. The free content in Apex Legends for Season 2 includes new stat trackers for each Legend, free Apex packs, and the Hot Rod skin for the new character, Wattson.
Logging back in to Apex Legends you’ll notice that Kings Canyon has changed, there’s obviously a new character, and a powerful new LMG weapon. Players can also now play in Ranked Leagues which penalize players for leaving early. You can find the full patch notes for Apex Legends Update 1.14 below:
