Apex Legends At EA Play

With EA PLAY right around the corner (June 8-9), we’re taking a look at what is on the agenda for Respawn, regarding Apex Legends, and what we hope they address during the two-day event in Hollywood.


What we know Respawn wants to talk about


At EA PLAY in June, we will give you the first details on what you can expect from Season 2. We’ve seen all the feedback on Season 1 and look forward to showing you the improvements we’re making. For Season 2 you can expect a Battle Pass with more meaningful content, the introduction of a new Legend, the debut of a new weapon . . . and you didn’t expect Kings Canyon to stay the same forever, did you?

With Season 1 in the home stretch, Respawn will surely want to address the successes and failures of its inaugural season. One of the most requested improvements has to be the Battle Pass. Fans were disappointed by the lack of rewards and the “grindiness” to get to max level. Although Respawn did rework it slightly during the season, many were unsatisfied with the overall product.


Another thing that has fans excited (albeit totally unsurprised) is the announcement of a new legend. It may be the worst-kept secret in gaming, but it’s expected that a character named “Wattson” will be the next to enter the arena. This information was datamined well before even Octane was released, with people suggesting that the character will have something to do with electricity (Watt). If the information that has been released on many other websites is true, Wattson will be the fourth female character in Apex Legends.


Another poorly-kept secret that Respawn has hinted they will talk about at EA PLAY is the release of a new gun. The L-Star is rumored to be a shield-shredding LMG, taken from Titanfall and imported into King’s Canyon. Even back in April, players were inadvertently getting the still-unreleased gun’s legendary skins.



The final thing hinted at by Respawn for Season 2 is a change of map, or at least an alteration of the current one. Fans have been clamoring for variety, and it’ll be interesting to see how the publisher plans to address this. Will there be two maps to play or will King’s Canyon be replaced for the season? It could be that the current map just gets a face-lift and remains the only one available. Those are the things that we know are on the agenda, but DreamTeam hopes that they find some time to talk about their plans for several other pain points that players are having.


What we hope they talk about


Something that has been worked on but still needs ironing out is hitboxes. We, as players, need Pathfinder to be killable as well as Gibraltar and Caustic to be playable. They’ve made adjustments to these problems recently, but they may need to consider a more comprehensive overhaul to hitboxes in general.


We’d also like to get some insight into the future of Apex in esports/competitive. Without a ranked system in place, many players are threatening to leave the casual gameplay behind for more competitive titles. Dropping into games with players that have 10k kills when you’re just a level 1 player is quite discouraging.

The game could go the route of MOBAs and create a ladder system, dropping players of similar ELO into the same matches. There’s the possibility that wide-search capabilities could be added at the same time for players who feel like matchmaking is taking too long or want to try their luck in a game with higher-ranked players.


One last thing that we’d like to see is a new way to spend in-game currency. Many players are sitting on hundreds of thousands of Legends tokens, with absolutely nothing to spend them on. Even the rotating shop has run out of incredibly dull color-change-only skins to sell. People are willing to spend on cosmetics, as has been proven time and time again. But, players don’t like buying alternate colors for already-purchased skins. We’re hoping for another way to spend Legends tokens or, at least, some great new character and weapon skins for us to use our 150k saved currency.

DreamTeam will be at EA PLAY providing exclusive photos as well as news about what’s happening at the event.
