Apex Legends Season 15 release date
Season 15 of Apex Legends will begin on Tuesday 1st November 2022. This is reflected in Season 14''s Battle Pass, which will continue to run until the 1st November. Once the Battle Pass comes to an end, we can expect an hour or two of server downtime while Respawn switches everything over to the new update; and then Season 15 will begin.
A tweet from Tom Henderson, a prominent and reliable leaker of information for many games, revealed the 1st November date. The same tweet also revealed that Season 15 will be called Apex Legends: Eclipse.
What is the theme for Apex Legends: Eclipse?
We don''t have much information on Season 15 of Apex Legends, but given its appearance (Eclipse) and the fact that there is a new map on the moon (more on this below), there''s a high expectation that Season 15 will focus on Seer''s lore and history.
Seer was added as a playable character in Season 10, but there was still no emphasis on him. After that, we learn from him that he was considered a bad omen following a meteor hitting his world''s moon on the day of his birth. It''s a lot of benefit to this fascinating character, which it appears to be a lot more likely in Season 15.
There is a broad speculation that Season 15''s obvious focus on Seer means we''ll see a Seer Heirloom add to Apex Legends with Eclipse, although this is not confirmed.
Divided Moon - the new Apex Legends map
Due to recent leaks, we have an idea of what to expect with Divided Moon - judging from the size of the first ring in the above screenshot - so that it looks like it will be the second-smallest map so far, only slightly larger than Olympus. Unlike Storm Point, the map roster, there''s no overall slope to the terrain. Everything is more or less on the same level, but large chunks of moon rock are formed in a manner similar to Kings Canyon and the original Apex Legend
Respawn are experimenting a bit with the idea of gravity with the Divided Moon. Several points of interest have chasms filled with floating rocks. It''s a comfortable bet that you''ll be en route to safety, similar to that of World''s Edge and Olympus.
It''s likely that the map will have a constant running train, unlike World''s Edge when it was first released, which is unlikely to happen. This will certainly be a great addition to Divided Moon, although this might be a mistake in the future.
Divided Moon will likely dominate the first several days of Season 15, as is common when a new map is added before the season begins. It''s anticipated that Storm Point will be vaulted for the time being, and Olympus will return to rotation alongside Divided Moon and either Kings Canyon or World''s Edge (or both!).
Who is the new role in Apex Legends Season 15?
A new Season means a new Legend. There aren''t yet clear details on which character will be released with Apex Legends: Eclipse, but it appears that the new Legend will be either Catalyst or Husaria, according to recent leaks, findings, and rumors from the playerbase.
Catalyst, the new feature for Season 15, is a malleable smart substance known as ferrofluid. Here are her datamined abilities:
- Passive: Reinforce - Standing near your ferrofluid structures, doors, and other Legends'''' placeables will strengthen their integrity and allow them to take significantly more damage.
- Tactical: Ferro Shot - On impact, the shot creates a ramp of hardened ferrofluid that can be extended with more shots. Can also be used to create platforms on walls (Max 3 structures).
- Ultimate: Iron Tower - Ferrofluid rises up from below, pushing you upwards while creating a tall solid column under you.
If Catalyst gets into Apex Legends in Season 15, there''s plenty of reason to believe it, as the Legend''s name suggests, and some leakers discovered a holospray texture, which says a not-yet-revealed Legend along with the words "Guardian Angel." However, the signs suggest that Catalyst will be able to join the Apex Games as soon as possible.
The truth is that Catalyst is a friend of Mila, Crypto''s foster sister, who was kidnapped after crashing into their secure network. Crypto was then framed for her murder, causing him to go on the run to avoid her murder until he joined the Apex Games in Season 3 as part of his revenge plot against The Syndicate.
Recently, players discovered that the names of Apex Legends include a reference to a Legend called Husaria. This is interesting because Husaria is known to have been a character in the works several seasons ago, but it was thought that Husaria eventually became Mad Maggie, the Legend, which was eventually released with Season 12.
Why is Husaria suddenly appearing again in Apex''s files? It might be that Husaria is a codename used for who the next Legend might be (so it might still be Catalyst, under Husaria''s moniker) but it''s also worth noting that leakers have revealed datamined abilities for a Legend called Husaria:
- Passive: Shotgun Kick - You have a shotgun on your leg that fires when you melee doors or enemies. Requires shotgun ammo. Using your abilities grants you a brief speed boost.
- Tactical: Flashbang - Throw a grenade that briefly blinds and deafens opponents.
- Ultimate: Concussive Breaching Charge - Plant a breaching charge that fires a sonic wave through walls to destroy traps, force open doors, and disorient enemies.
It''s all very familiar - a passive relating to shotguns and speed boosts, a breaching charge that fires through walls and destroys enemy structures? It''s possible that these datamined abilities are simply remnants from an early version of Mad Maggie.
As we await more details of Husaria''s role in Season 15, they will not arrive exactly in the above form. However, it''s possible that Husaria might be a name more thrown around.
Will there be new weapons in Season 15?
With every new Season, Respawn would release a weapon. Despite the fact that new weapons are still rare, the weapon pool is in a very good place at the moment. The CAR SMG, which was previously added to Apex, was the first weapon to be added to Season 11.
While Season 15 will begin bringing a new weapon, we know from leaks several seasons ago that there are new weapons in the works. One such weapon is the Nemesis, a burst Assault Rifle like the Hemlok, but one that charges up as it damages enemies until at full charge it becomes a fully automatic weapon.
Also, there are other weapons in the works, from the Fanatic akimbo pistols to the Scorpion C80, a so-called full-auto crossbow. Perhaps the most interesting new weapon we''ve heard is the Gemini SMG, a fairly ordinary Energy Ammo SMG, but one that increases fire rates and handling speeds when you carry two Geminis, one in each weapon slot. Fascinating!
In this video by YouTuber "bobz," you may look at the early versions of all of these weapons.
In Season 15, what balance changes might be seen?
As for overall Legend balance changes, it''s much harder to pin down what we might see once Season 15 arrives. Vantage may well receive some bug fixes and tweaks, most likely to her Tactical ability. I don''t think there are any top-tier Legends that require particular nerfs to keep them in line with the rest of the roster, so if there are any major Legend changes I expect it will be to buff Legends lower down in the Apex Legends tier list, such as Crypto, Pathfinder
This is not really an exact concept at the moment. As we look closer to November, we''ll gain more intel on the Legend balance changes.
New Season 15 Battle Pass, skins, and events
Season 15 will certainly bring a new Battle Pass to Apex Legends, and thanks to recent claims, we know that both Legends and weapons'' theme will be "Magic Goth." This image, however, has not yet been identified, but it is clear that these new skins will be both gothic and magical in style.
The game files for Season 15''s Battle Pass have been found.
|Alternator||Weapon||Epic + Rare|
Leaks have also confirmed a Season 15 Collection Event, which has been written under the code "Magic Snow Beast," and will offer players the opportunity to get a Legendary Newcastle skin, along with Epic skins for Horizon, Mad Maggie, Mirage, and Wraith.
There will be a Thematic Event naming "Magic Witch" (lots of magic in Season 15, apparently! ), which will offer players Epic skins for Lifeline, Rampart, Revenant, and Valkyrie, as well as Rare skins for Wraith and the Alternator.
