If you’ve been asking yourself questions like ‘When does Apex Legends season 4 start?’ or ‘Who is the new Apex Legends character?’ – congratulations. Not only do you speak in oddly-Google-friendly search phrases, you’ll also find this is the day Respawn has lifted the veil on the latest content for its fast-paced battle royale.
Apex Legends season 4 is called Assimilation, and it launches February 4 – exactly one year after the game had its surprise release. Respawn is keeping quiet about specific gameplay details for now, but our new legend this time is Forge, a prize-winning brawler with a robotic arm. (Yes, the Doomfist jokes have already been run into the ground.) In-lore, he’s got a sponsorship from Hammond Robotics, a company from the Titanfall universe which manufactures some of those titular giant robots.
There are also “big map changes coming to World’s Edge,” according to design director Jason McCord, and Hammond will be a part of them. These changes will be similar to the revamps for Kings Canyon in season 2.
