With just weeks left in Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor, Respawn has started dropping some serious hints for what might be on the way for Season 6. We’ve collected all of the teasers that we’ve found so far. As with most new Apex Legends season teasers, Respawn is being rather cryptic. That said, we did finally get some more information in the Season 6 launch trailer. It’s embedded below.
There are clues to Season 6’s new storylines and gameplay changes in Apex Legends right now. The most direct set of clues are found in the Season 5 Quest, so you should finish it if you haven’t already–it both sees the return of a familiar face from Titanfall 2 and hints at a possible new map.
In World’s Edge, construction signs have popped up that hint at possible map changes occurring at Drill Site and just outside The Dome. Some of those signs–as you can see in the picture below–have been covered in graffiti. The graffiti reads, “All hail Sheila!” We now know this is in reference to Rampart’s minigun, which she nicknames Sheila. It’s odd to see Rampart added to Apex Legends next; Newcastle was supposed to come to the Apex Games next. Revenant and Loba were special circumstances; both have delayed his addition but they haven’t stopped it. It seems like Rampart is a special case too.
The Apex Legends Twitter account has also been releasing cryptic audio files in the lead up to Season 6. The first, tweeted out on August 4, is a recording of Bangalore. The second, tweeted out on August 5, is a recording of a woman that we don’t recognize.
Additionally, Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier told GameSpot that Season 6 “may be a little bit different” from Season 5 when it comes to storytelling. “We’ve been listening to a lot of the feedback and I think, in general, people enjoy playing Quest,” Grenier said. “If anything, the feedback has just been that people want more of that lore and storytelling so we’re finding new ways to bring that content in future seasons–just listening and learning, we’re trying to evolve the way that we’re doing it and find what works best. Season 6 may be a little bit different from 5 and that’s just us iterating and trying to try new things and see what works and see what doesn’t work and listen to the fans.”
