After a shadowy figure brought down the Repulsor Tower, the Apex Games were forced to shut down for a brief period. During that time, the lack of the Repulsor Tower allowed beasts to once again take their natural place in Kings Canyon, and in doing so brought with them a level of destruction that has left certain areas of the map unrecognizable. Crews setup base camps and worked around the clock to repair the map, also taking this time to add new features to the arena, while the lack of Legends have allowed certain areas of Kings Canyon to stabilize and grow.
Battle Charge also sees the debut of the Apex Games newest Legend, Natalie “Wattson” Paquette. Daughter of the Games’ lead electrical engineer, Wattson fights in the arena she helped build, destroying incoming missiles, recharging shields, creating fences, and using her pylon to silence fights that get too loud. Nobody knows the arena better than Wattson, and anyone who underestimates her is in for a shock.
Season 2 will also bring the Apex Legends Ranked Leagues, where competitive players can go and test their skills while gaining recognition and rewards along the way. During Season 2, players will have the ability to climb six competitive tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator. Players can ascend the ranks to unlock exclusive cosmetics and rewards at season’s end, while also being able to see how they stack up against other Apex Legends players from around the world.
