While EA and Respawn Entertainment have yet to confirm an official statement on Apex Legends Season 6 release date, the likeliest release date for Apex Legends Season 6 is Tuesday, August 18, 2020. If going with the in-game menus, as of June 2, the Season 5 Battle Pass has 36 days remaining, which indicates it is going to expire on Monday, August 17.

Apex Legends Season 6 Release Date

Since most of the main and significant Apex updates and season launches are on Tuesdays, it gives us a clear picture that Season 6 will kick start on the following day. Certainly, Respawn has always got room for delays so they may probably delay the start as they did with S5, which was to aid the Battle Armor Event for players. Therefore, you can expect to see Sixth Season⁠ in early-to-mid August 2020.

Apex Legends Season 6 Characters

So far we have always got a new character in Apex Legend, and this time in Season 6 we expect the same. Who that new character will be is a major secret at the moment, but looking through the game leaks and rumours we can take some ideas as to who could enter the team in Season 6.

Although there has yet to be an official Apex Season 6 announcement, a rumour implies that the next character in Apex Legends Season 6 will be Rampart. It was concluded using a development sheet that leaked soon after Apex launched in 2019.

However, multiple possible legend designs and names have been leaked. Below is an idea of what they could be –



Rampart is massively connected to construction and repair. He is considered to have a wrench as a melee weapon and a drill/digger as a turret base. At the moment, he is the most credible legend to come to the game.



Nomad has a latent ability of extra backpack space for himself and his teammates. He is supposed to have a loot compass that points him in the direction of the nearest loot.



Immortal can release nanites to either charge team shields or disable that of his enemies and is believed to be a support playstyle. He can revive himself too.



Blisk is believed to be inspired by Titanfall, many people think that he is teased in the Apex Legends opening cinematic. One of his abilities implies that on the execution of an enemy, it will show their teammates’ location for 10 seconds.



Forge, the character that was executed in Revenant’s reveal trailer, might return. He is likely to join us towards the end of the season, or he may have been pushed back to Season 6. Apex Legends writer, Tom Casiello played very modestly when discussing Forge’s death on Twitter in May.



There are other legends also mentioned through data mining but there are not many details on them for now, these include Jericho, Husaria, Skunner, Prophet, Downfall, Valk and Reckoner.

Apex Legends Season 6 Location Maps

Apex Legends’ recent dev stream provided fans with a glimpse of a potential change to Kings Canyon in S6 which was a colossal UFO-like structure. Shrugtal, one of the most productive data miners in the community, recreated the upcoming addition to the location map in in-depth detail.

In the map, the new area is a park-like structure having trees, grass, bushes and even a mini-mart. It is suggested that it could lead towards Psamathe, where Revenant’s “source code” was moved to after Loba activated the security systems in the Kings Canyon facility.


This structure is expected to be placed on the south side of the map and take the place of the suspended skull in Salvage but will be connected to the rest of the map with the help of ziplines.

According to some people say that it hovers instead of being held up by a crane, which implies that there are only two ways to access it first is likely be through ziplines and second is by dropping straight onto it.

Apex Legends Season 6 Battle Pass

The Apex Legends Battle Pass gives access to multiple rewards that can be unlocked via XP collected throughout playing the game. It is basically an incentive to engage players while helping to maintain constant players invested in the experience. There is also a free version of the pass that unlocks rewards and a premium version that gifts players a greater variety of in-game items.

Players who buy the pass can collect over 100 items from playing the game, including skins, taunts, banners in-game currency and more. Items that are particular to a season’s Battle Pass will vanish once the season comes to an end and will not be able to unlock via any other way.


At the moment, we do not know what the S6 Battle Pass will actually contain, but we highly expect the premium version will arrive with 3 exclusive character skins and 1 legendary weapon skin similar to prior seasons. So far, every Battle Pass has cost 950 Apex Coins, so we believe that the Season 6 Battle Pass will cost the same, which would involve buying 1,000 coins from the store.

However, if you purchase the Season 5 Battle Pass and do not use any of the currency that you receive when levelling, you will most likely have enough to buy the S6 Battle Pass without paying any real money.


That sums up everything we know about Apex Legends Season 6 Release Date, Characters, Location Map & Battle Pass, for now, but undoubtedly there will be more information that comes out when the next season arrives. So stay tuned for much more information as we will be updating regularly.
