On January 27, the launch trailer for Apex Legends Season 12, officially known as Defiance, will release.
You can check it out on YouTube from 11am ET/4pm GMT on that day, and anytime after that.
Whatever new info comes from the launch trailer, we'll update you here with all of it.
Mad Maggie Is Season 12 New Legend
Following the release of the latest Stories from the Outlands, Mad Maggie has been revealed as the new legend for Season 12.
Teases had suggested it is her, but it has now been confirmed.
The latest trailer has also been tweeted, with the tagline "It’s time for Mad Maggie to face justice for her crimes. But when you can’t be innocent and you won’t be guilty, what fate lies in store?"
All of the Season 12 details should be live soon - we know it's called Definace, so we'll add them here once we can.
Next-gen Apex coming with Season 12?
They posted that an Apex Legends PS5 file had been uploaded to the database, which suggests it is coming soon.
Cross-Progression - Will we see this much-needed feature soon?
Cross-Progression is one of those features that feels commonplace with Fortnite and Call of Duty both championing it, but it's actually not that common in reality. Apex Legends is one game that could do with it, though - at the moment, your content is platform-locked despite the fact that you can enter cross-platform matchmaking with your EA Account.
Thankfully, it looks like Cross-Progression is a feature that we could be seeing in the future - we don't know how immediate its release will be and whether it will arrive at the start of SEason 12 - but it's on the way regardless.
A Producer working on Apex Legends tweeted the following confirming that it's being worked on alongside next-gen console support - although no further details were released.
With any luck, we should learn more about these features soon.
Reactive Skins - Is Bloodhound getting one of these?
GarretLeaks, the ever-reliable Apex Legends data miner, has suggested that a Crypto Heirloom is coming in a Season 12 Event that's going to introduce a new level of rarity when it comes to Legend skins.
Reactive skins, that Garret suggests might level based on eliminations or damage dealt, are in the works. Bloodhound could be the first Legend to get one of these skins - which makes sense as they're one of the original Apex Legends cast members - but more could be on the way.
He goes over his findings in the YouTube video below:
When does Season 12 actually start?
Respawn Entertainment hasn't confirmed when Apex Legends Season 12 is due to start, but looking at Season 11's end date would suggest that we're going to see the next update coming around February 8th, 2022.
This would mean that Season 11 is the same length - there abouts - as Season 10. We don't think Respawn Entertainment is going to change the length of seasons, but delays could crop up. So... Keep an eye on PlayApex for the time being.
