The new season of the Apex Legends is upon us. When will Apex Legends Season 12 release? What is the new season’s name, if it has any? What will it bring to the game, and will there be a new Limited Time Mode? In this blog, we will discuss everything we know about Season 12 of Apex Legends. Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale video game and third game set in the Titanfall franchise’s universe. Respawn Entertainment developed this game and released it in February 2019. Apex Legends had no marketing before its release, and everybody believed it to be a sequel to Titanfall 2.
Apex Legends is very different from the other battle royale game, as it allowed the players to select legends. The legends are characters with different abilities and have their distinct ultimate. All the legends have three abilities and they are passive ability, tactical ability, and an ultimate ability. Apex is also different as it has only 20 squads of three players each. The game has three game modes which are Unranked, Ranked, and Arenas. The game has a total of 19 legends, and a new one is coming in the new season. Apex Legends received positive reviews from fans and critics and has over 100 million players.
Apex Legends Season 12: Everything We Know
With yesterday’s new Stories from Outlands video, we know almost everything about the new season for the Apex Legends. Let us discuss what are the things coming to the Apex Legends Season 12, from new legend to new LTMs.
With the new Stories from the Outlands named Judgement, the new legend arriving in the game is none other than the closest and childhood friend of Walter “Fuse” Fitzroy Jr, Margaret “Mad Maggie” Kohere.
She is from the planet called Salvo, where she and Fuse grew together. Mad Maggie first appeared in the Apex Legends Season 8, when Fuse arrived in Kings Canyon on an IMS Thermopylae. She hijacked it and demanded the other legends to bring his other arm. She took over and hosted the Apex Games in season 8. In the comics of Season 8, she supposedly died from falling after she refused help from Fuse.
In Season 11, the teaser for the new legend appeared when the dog fight of two jet fighters occurred. During the fight, one of the jet fighters gets shot and, one wing falls down to the ground. The wing has the logo of the Salvo.
Nicola Kawana will Voice the Mad Maggie in season 12 of Apex Legends.
The developers have not yet revealed her abilities at the moment, but the wait will not be that long as the season’s launch trailer will explain everything about the new legend.
With every new season, Apex Legends gets a new map rotation. The new season will bring back Olympus, which was not in season 11. Respawn Entertainment has teased that the Olympus will have something different from what we’ve seen so far. Maybe they will start destroying the Olympus as they did with Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. MAYBE.
Olympus is the only map currently confirmed, but the newest map, Storm Point, will surely be in the game as it just came out. Maybe there will be three map rotations like they did in Season 10.
New Limited Time Mode
A new limited-time game mode is coming with the new season in Apex Legends called Control. In Control, the nine teams of three players each will fight to hold and control the points.
The team will go in the Control mode with their select loadouts. There will be infinite respawn in this mode.
With the release of season 12, the Apex Legends will be three years old. To celebrate this, Respawn will reward the players with Legend’s thematic packs for three weeks whenever they log in to Apex Legends. The legends are:
- Octane – Thematic packs x 3. From 8 February to 15 February.
- Wattson – Thematic packs x 3. From 15 February to 22 February
- Valkyrie – Thematic packs x 3 and a legendary pack. From 22 February to 1 March.
Unfortunately, the Season 12 of Apex Legends is not bringing in any new weapon.
