Yesterday saw a relatively low-key Apex Legends update drop on all platforms, which looks set to be followed by a somewhat more exciting content drop.
A new video was posted online by the Apex team, revealing that the game’s next weapon would be dropping today, February 20.
The new clip showcasing the assault weapon came with a caption confirming its name, revealing: “Get ready to cry havoc—a new gun is coming to King’s Canyon.”
The Havoc has already been leaked by data miners, meaning we have a little more information on the weapon.
It appears that it will be some kind of energy-based assault rifle that boasts a special mod.
According to data miners, this will allow the Havoc to switch between full-auto and burst fire, a neat trick in a tight spot.
It should be noted that only the name and the launch date of the weapon have been confirmed so far by Respawn, meaning some of this leaked information could be wrong.
And the Havoc might not be the only new addition made to the game in the coming weeks.
Another weapon was also spotted by data miners called The L-Star EMG.
This doesn’t come with a release date but will probably be made available during the first Apex Legends season, which kicks off in March.
Each season will run for approximately three months and will come with its own Battle Pass.
The Battle Pass is a seasonal system that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic items, made famous through Fortnite Battle Royale.
These rewards are a mix of exclusive seasonal cosmetics and Apex Packs, with all players able to unlock some of these items each season through normal play.
But those who do choose to purchase the Battle Pass can earn everything available that season, around 100 different rewards.
The good news is that New Legends characters and weapon will not be locked behind the Battle Pass, which has yet to be fully revealed.
More news is expected to be announced before the end of February, including key dates for the new Season and the Battle Pass.
Speaking on their plans for the future, the Respawn confirmed that more regular news would be shared about the game going forward.
“We’re going to start doing more regular updates like this moving forward,” the developer message confirms.
“I’ll be making posts daily starting Tuesday next week. Not all of these will be groundbreaking or major news but think of it as our way of checking in each day to address what we can.
“As we speak, a production team is building a rad soundstage and set right here at Respawn. I can’t wait to get it up and running and start putting on shows with the team. We will debut our first developer stream around the launch of Season 1.
“Couple more things in the works that we’ll talk about more in the near future.”
