30 Apr


Greetings from your Apex Legends™ Ranked designers. We’re back again to talk about Ranked Leagues Series 4 for Apex Legends. As usual, we’ll take a look at our goals, talk about some results, and detail how Ranked Leagues will work when Season 5 - Fortune’s Favor launches.

TL;DR

  • Splits are working well. Staying with ~6 weeks of ranked play before a reset
  • Tier and Apex Predator separation worked as intended.
  • reset gave a good incentive to keep playing.
  • Switching maps mid season helped keep things interesting. Will persist.

Series 3 Results

Let’s quickly review our goals for Ranked and comment a bit on some of the Series 3 performance results. Ranked is feeling pretty consistent from season to season, but we will keep tuning things as needed!

The Old Ways Patch Notes

Post

https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/news/old-ways-patch-notes

DUOS AND MAP ROTATION Starting on April 7th, Duos will be added to the game alongside Trios, as well a permanent map rotation that gives players the ability to play Duos or Trios on Kings Canyon and Worlds Edge.

Since the launch of Apex Legends, we’ve introduced Duos a few times as a limited-time mode, and overall it’s had a positive effect on the game’s health in regards to queue times and gameplay systems in addition to reinforcing teamplay (something that is paramount to every design decision we make for Apex Legends). So with the 4.2 update we are excited to be adding it as a permanent mode alongside Trios (Duos will not be available in Ranked).

Now, what about Solos? When we introduced Solos as a limited-time mode last year we saw it actually negatively impacted the game, especially when it came to new player reten...

System Override Patch Size

Post
Trello on Trello - Thread - Direct

With this Patch, we did what is called a “ReBase.” What that means is that we changed some file structures and overall optimizing of the current game. Over the year, we just kept adding file to the game and in some cases duplicate files existed due to our map changes and such. We decided consolidate a lot of it, which means the overall game size should be smaller and ready for future patches. Below are the Download size for the 4.1 patch.

SYSTEM OVERRIDE COLLECTION EVENT PATCH NOTES

Check out all the tweaks, fixes, and updates coming to Apex Legends along with the System Override Event, running March 3-17.

Limited Time Mode - Deja Loot

  • Deja Loot is a unique take on the Apex games where “random” is a dirty word. A glitch in the system has caused all loot to spawn in the same location every match for the duration of the event. Even the plane path and circle locations will be fixed for this mode, which will change on a daily basis while the loot location stays the same for the whole event.
  • Features new equipment type: Evo Shield [see below for details]
  • The first week will be played on World’s Edge and the second week we’ll go back to Kings Canyon

Details Reveal your true nature in Apex Legends Season 4 – Assimilation. Channel the spirit of vengeance with Revenant, a new Legend and nightmare simulacrum. Pick up the new Battle Pass to take on Daily and Weekly Challenges and score unique rewards with a cybernetic slant. Enter the updated World’s Edge map, where Hammond Robotics resource harvesting is causing chaos and tearing up the Arena. Take aim with the Sentinel, a bolt-action sniper rifle that lets you shut down enemies before they even see you. Merge the worlds of human, machine, and simulacrum when you embrace who you really are in Apex Legends Season 4 – Assimilation.

30 Jan


Revenant used to be human. He was the greatest hitman the Mercenary Syndicate ever had. But when his programming eventually failed, he saw what Hammond Robotics had turned him into: a walking nightmare of steel and vestigial flesh. The return of Hammond Robotics to the Outlands has renewed his thirst for vengeance, and he won’t stop until they’re all dead. Of course, he doesn’t mind eviscerating a few Legends along the way.
