by in Apex Legends | Aug, 6th 2020

Respawn Entertainment dropped a massive new trailer today, showcasing the latest season for Apex Legends. As teased this week, the sixth season of the battle royale game was revealed, including the Apex Legends Season 6 release date that just so happens to be somewhat close.

Apex Legends Season 6 Release Date Revealed

The Apex Legends Season 6 release date was revealed among the other massive parts of the cinematic trailer, including the fact that players will only have to wait for a little under two weeks to check out all of the interesting new content that will drop with the battle royale season.

At this time, the Apex Legends Season 6 release date is Tuesday, Aug. 18. That means players only have a little bit left in the current fifth season to finish everything up before it is over.

But the Apex Legends Season 6 release date trailer wasn’t just focusing on when the new season will come out, but what will be arriving on that day as well. Players have a ton to look forward to in the upcoming season, including a new weapon, cosmetic type, and yes, the next legend.

First and foremost, Season 6, known as Boosted, will feature a brand new battle pass for players to purchase and/or progress through with over 100 exclusive items that you will not be able to get anywhere else. These items include some new legendary skins, Apex packs, and a new cosmetic.

Crafting and Holo-Sprays Arrive

That new cosmetic category is none other than holo-sprays. While we don’t have a ton of details regarding these new items at this time, we believe they will be a spray item that players will be able to use to mark their territory in combat, putting hilarious or competitive messages around the map.

If that isn’t enough, there is a new gameplay feature coming to battle royale matches known as crafting. Sure, you can use some materials in the game menus to craft cosmetics you like, but this is related to the online matches you partake in.

While details are still a bit scarce at this time regarding what the crafting system will be like, we know that it will allow you to make something more to your liking. Respawn touts the crafting system to help players get the gear they like more by gathering materials around the map.

While we don’t know how you will be able to get those materials and what they will act like, this seems like an intriguing and deeper take on the materials and upgrading system that other battle royale games like Fortnite have available to them.

Volt SMG Finally Makes Its Debut

A new season of Apex Legends wouldn’t be complete without a new ranked season to go with it, and that is what will happen in Season 6. There will be a new ranked season with rewards and tiers for players to climb through, but again, that’s all we know about it.

Another major addition to the new season that is arguably the second-most important one is a new weapon. The long-awaited and heavily rumored for so long SMG weapon, the Volt, is debuting Apex Legends. This is a weapon that we heard leaks about for months on end.

Oddly enough, we haven’t heard too much about it recently, but Respawn decided to finally drop the Volt SMG as part of the upcoming sixth season. Players will be able to charge into battle with this energy SMG weapon that will pack quite a punch in combat.

But at the end of the day, the new season’s biggest focus is going to be none other than the brand new legend. Every new season comes with a new hero to drop into the Apex arena. This season is none other than Rampart, a character we have heard a lot about in the past.

What We Know About the New Legend

If you’ve been following our recent leaks for Apex Legends, you will have likely heard about Rampart and her abilities. Though her final abilities will likely be slightly different from the past leaks, they give us a general idea of how this character will play.

Rampart is an expert modder who was able to make her name fighting in the underground fight clubs. She doesn’t just talk the talk as she has the firepower to back up her claims. Rampart will be a unique hero because she will have a little friend that she will bring to the party.

The Apex Legends Season 6 release date cinematic trailer is all that we have to go on at this time for how Rampart will play in the game, but it does show some interesting tidbits. In one section, Bangalore shoots through a shield wall, likely deployed by Rampart.

If her abilities are to be believed from the leaks, this shield wall will be her tactical ability and the one that she can use more often. In another spot in the trailer, we can see the massive turret that Rampart wields that she has lovingly named Sheila.

Presumably, Sheila will be Rampart’s ultimate ability and allow her to decimate enemies with ease. She will also probably be able to combine this ability with her shield wall to protect the team, possibly boost the process, and lay down some massive fire on enemy teams.

Players won’t have to wait too long to see Rampart in action, as she will be joining the rest of the battle royale crew when the Apex Legends Season 6 release date arrives on Aug. 18. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days about all of the goodies that Season 6 will include and how Rampart will work in combat.
