Apex Legends Season 22: Release Date, New Map, Split Battle Pass, and More

Get ready, Legends! Respawn Entertainment has unveiled some exciting details for Apex Legends Season 22, including a brand new map, a revamped Battle Pass system, and a potential rework for Lifeline. Here’s what we know so far:

Apex Legends Season 22 Release Date

rk your calendars! Season 22 launches on August 6, 2024, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. This timeframe aligns with the in-game Battle Pass timer for Season 21, a reliable indicator for past releases.

District Takeover

Leaks suggest a new map called “District” is arriving. Set in Suotamo, Crypto’s old stomping grounds and one of the biggest Outlands cities, District promises a fresh battle royale experience. Whispers of a new four-seater Trident also hint at the possible return of Quads in this season.

New Season, New Battle Pass

Mark your calendars for August 6th! Season 22 arrives with a major shakeup to the Battle Pass system. Instead of one 110-tier pass, you’ll get two 60-tier passes throughout the season. While this might seem like a good thing for completionists, there’s a catch: players are reportedly unhappy with the changes.

The new system ditches the option to buy the pass with earnable Apex Coins. Instead, you’ll need to pay real money, with rumors suggesting a new “Premium+” tier costing $19.99 / £17.99. This means reaching max rewards might require more spending.

Lifeline Gets a Revamp (Maybe)

Fan-favorite Lifeline might be in for a rework in Season 22 or 23. Leaked details suggest a complete overhaul under the name “Lifeline Revived.” Here’s what she might get:

  • A new gliding mechanic with her current Passive.
  • A revamped D.O.C. Heal Drone that follows you and your teammates.
  • A brand new Ultimate called “Shockbot 3000” that deploys a destructive bot to clear enemies from an area.

Remember, these are just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt.
