For now, the Electronic Arts website has loads of details about new content landing in the second season. Lee Horn, lead product manager at EA, gives a quick summary of "just some" of the improvements players will note in Apex Legends Season 2:

  • Level up via Daily and Weekly Challenges.
  • Time to Battle Pass level 100 should be significantly reduced.
  • Three additional Legendary skins added to the rewards track.
  • Three entirely new content categories replace badge and stat tracker rewards.
  • You’ll earn enough Crafting Metal rewards from the full reward track to craft a Legendary item, or whatever your heart desires.

Beyond this, players can look forward to completing both Daily and Weekly challenges in order to level up their Battle Pass. Even better, challenges will stick around longer after first appearing, so there's less risk of missing out on loot due to real-world distractions.

We can safely say that Season 2 of Apex Legends won't be starting any time soon, but Electronic Arts will give players a better idea of when the second season kicks off through EA Play on June 8. Until then, stay fresh on Respawn's hot battle royale game by heading over to Shacknews' Apex Legends home page.

      I love these “we don’t know the answer to the question we just made an article about” posts.

        Gotta get them search results.

        I searched for something a few weeks ago and one of the first results was an article at bodybuilding.com, the furthest place you would go for said question, and the content was vague and useless.
