When does Apex Legends' Legacy Update drop?

The Apex Legends Legacy Update is almost here, you might also know it as Season 9. We've got everything you need to know about when it is actually coming.

Legacy Update Start Date

The latest Stories from the Outlands short, Northstar, gave us our first real look at what's coming to Apex Legends in the next title update next month.

It introduces Kairi Imahara, Valkyrie, the daughter of a Titan Pilot from Titanfall 2 and the next Apex Legend joining the Apex Games.

It also confirmed the long-awaited release date for Apex Legends Season 9, which will now be known as the Legacy Update.

The next season of Apex Legends is coming on May 4th, just a day after the Season 8 Battle Pass is due to expire. You can check out the new cinematic short which confirms this below:

New Content Teased

We don't know everything that's changing in Apex Legends' Legacy Update, but we do know a couple of the major things.

We've already talked about Valkyrie, the new Apex Legend, but there's also a new Compound Bow weapon coming to the title.

The Bocek Bow packs a punch and hints that a new Ammo Type will be added to the game too, as we can't really see the Bocek Bow using Sniper Ammo.

" A powerful and deadly weapon, for those with the skill to wield it. Capable of inflicting tremendous damage at medium range, you’ll need to make each shot count."

In addition to this, Olympus is going to undergo a few changes as it seems to have a little bit of a weed problem. Well... More of an infestation.

Unfortunately, we don't actually know anything more than what's in the tweet above. Is Olympus still in the air? Will it be "broken up"? Only time will tell.
