New Battle Pass Trailer
Respawn Entertainment has shared the new Legacy Battle Pass trailer that gave us a better look at the new Legend skins and weapon appearances coming in the massive update.
Rampart's Crafty Kitsune and Wraith's Demon's Whisper are the highlights, but we also get a look at a new Devotion and Spitfire weapon skin.
There's also going to be new Music Packs, Loading Screens, Banners, Gun Charms, Skydive Emotes, Holo-Sprays and Quips. We're not sure how Caustic would feel about being made out to be a bit of a bumbling oaf though...
You can check the full trailer in the tweet below:
Arenas Legend Meta Breakdown
Apex Legends' new Arena Mode is going to be a highlight for a lot of people playing the next season. But, with it being an elimination mode with round-based combat... How does the Arena meta differ from the Battle Royale meta?
Of course, there are going to be some difference between the two and you have to think that the offensive-based Legends will be a driving force in winning rounds.
Well, Respawn Entertainment has tapped on someone in the know and they've done a deep-dive Beginner's Guide on Apex Legends Arenas mode.
You can check it out in the tweet below, but this is what DazsBF has said regarding the Legend Meta.
Bloodhound is great for visibility and Octane is fantastic as always because of his increased movement speed. In addition to this, Lifeline's quicker revive time is always handy. Pathfinder and Wraith can also both be fantastic for re-positioning and flanking.
Bangalore is one Legend that might not be as helpful, according to the video. In addition to this, Crypto's abilities take a lot of time to use and this can expose him and his team.
Interestingly, with the right team composition, any one of Apex Legends' seventeen Legends can be a viable pick in Arenas if you're aware of how they can be used in this different context.
New Valkryie Trailer
Check out a closer look at Valk in this awesome new trailer.
"Whoever said the sky is the limit never left the ground."
There are no limits to playing the new legend Valkyrie. Fans are exciting about the potential for this new character, expecting her to be fun to play and difficult to play against.
Legacy Ranked Announced
Apex Legends' major title update might not literally be called Season 9, but there's still going to be a Ranked Leagues refresh and we have all the new information about Apex Legends: Legacy Ranked right here.
The first thing to note is that there isn't really going to be any major changes to the way RP and Ranked Leagues work in Apex Legends going forwards.
According to Respawn Entertainment's Blog Post on Legacy Ranked, Season 8 was the most successful Ranked Season for Apex Legends to date. At some points, almost 50% of all matches being played were in Ranked playlists!
In the Tweet below, you can check out the new batch of Ranked Leagues rewards you can earn throughout the Legacy Season.
Legacy Ranked Map Split Dates
This season, World's Edge is back for the first split of this season's Ranked League and will be available until June 15th 2021. The second split will be all about Olympus and the rest of the season will keep you there.

That isn't all though. Apex Legends' "Arenas" Mode has officially been confirmed and a new Gameplay reveal is coming on April 26th!
It's time to go beyond the battle royale.
Apex Legends' Legacy Update
The next major Apex Legends update is finally here, and brings a whole host of changes. Nothing too out of the ordinary then, right?
Kairi Imahara, the daughter of Viper, is joining the Apex Legends roster as the newest playable character: Valkyrie. If you don't know who Viper is, he's a Titan Pilot from Titanfall 2 that you blow up. Sorry, Kairi.
In addition to this, there's a new weapon being added and it's unlike anything we've seen before from Respawn Entertainment's battle royale. The Bocek Bow is a Compound Bow that packs a punch when you can land your shots.
It also introduces a new ammo type, Arrows.
Furthermore, Olympus has been infested and this map is going to be the latest Apex Legends location to undergo some major changes. We don't know the full extent of these yet but expect things to be a little different when we eventually jump back into the map.
As always, there's also going to be another Battle Pass with 110 Tiers of cosmetic rewards, Apex Packs, and XP boosts. It's a great time to be an Apex Legends player.
