As part of Respawn Entertainment’s mission to make Apex Legends an unmissable battle royale experience, one of the devs has announced that a bunch of bug fixes are on the way in a major patch for Season 8.
There’s a whole lot going on in Apex Legends Season 8 at the moment with the brand new Chaos Theory Collection Event going on. Not only that, but we’re also very quickly winding down to the end of Season 8 and looking ahead to the forthcoming drop of Season 9 content.
It seems there’s plenty of work for Respawn to be getting on with in regards to Apex Legends, and a new Tweet has suggested that even more is being done in the background as well.
A chunky update seems to be in development that will surely remove many glitches and bugs that are tucked away in the game files.
Apex Legends Game Director Chad Grenier recently took to Twitter to let the legion of Apex Legends players know that a big update is on the way.
He said, “We’re working on a hotfix to address several issues that will hopefully go out Monday morning.” In the post, there’s also a picture that comes with it detailing specific fixes that should hopefully improve the game’s performance.
A cursory glance at the notes reveals that the update will seek to address multiple areas of Apex Legends.

The patch will reinstate a myriad of missing textures, it will fix problems that can cause server and game connection issues, and will even fix the Battle Pass.
Another interesting thing to note is that the Tweet also mentions that “some items are redacted because they’re for content that has not been turned on yet.” This serves to underline that Respawn is hard at work on upcoming content for Season 9.

Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence has officially been announced, let’s take a look at what content players will be seeing in the patch notes.
Once again, a new season of Apex Legends is on the horizon, bringing not only a host of changes in the patch notes but also brand new content for players to indulge in, so let’s see what fans can expect in the Apex Legends Season 10 patch notes.
Just as we received these pieces of new content at the start of Season 9, players will be happy to know that Season 10‘s patch notes will also introduce a heap of new content.
Apex Legends Emergence Season 10 update patch notes
Apex Legends Season 10 release date
Firstly, let’s start with Season 10’s release.
Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence will arrive on August 3, just after the end of Season 9.
As many already know, Season 10 is entitled Emergence, perhaps hinting at the rise of a new Legend.
Apex Legends Season 10: New Legend Seer
With the new Season 10 gameplay trailer and sneak peek on his abilities at EA Play Live 2021, where other iconic games like Battlefield also presented new content, players finally have an understanding of how the Legend will operate.
- Passive: Heartbeat Sensor, Seer will be able to track enemies with a heartbeat sensor and gain information on their where abouts within a close vicinity.
- Tactical: Moth Drones, once tracked down with the Heartbeat Sensor, Seer can then send out his moth drones to keep tabs on their movements, similarly to Bloodhounds Scan.
- Ultimate: Seer’s moth combine to create a large sphere which tracks enemy footsteps when they’re running.
New Rampage LMG
Further, much like how players were given the Bocek Bow last season, Season 10 will introduce another new weapon called the Rampage LMG.
The Rampage LMG looks very interested and seems to charge up with Thermite Grenades, much like the Sentinal with Shield Cells.
Once charged up, this heavy-hitting machine will be able to break through doors much like Rampart’s Ultimate, Shiela, preventing enemies from camping behind doors.
As this new weapon is an LMG, many believe we could be seeing the Spitfire replacing the Prowler in the care package, but when more information is released, we will keep you updated.
Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence: Battle Pass
Like every season, players will also be getting a new battle pass with lots of new cosmetics and rewards to earn.
From the latest gameplay trailer, we were able to see some of these in action, including a new Valkyrie skin, Horizon skin, and what we suspect will be the Tier 100 Legendary Volt skin.
New Arenas maps and ranked mode
Season 10 will also introduce a host of new Arenas maps, which were shown in the new trailer.
The new maps that will be arriving are:
- Kings Canyon – Hillside
- World’s Edge – Dome
- Olympus – Oasis
Further, the new season will also bring Ranked Arenas, which players have been asking for since Arenas was released in Season 9. The Ranked format will be different from Ranked Leagues and more attuned to how Arenas works.
Stay tuned for more on Ranked Arenas.
World’s Edge map changes
Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence will also see a variety of changes coming to World’s Edge, implementing various new POIs, leaving some of the ones players are familiar with completely unrecognizable.
Just to name a few of the POIs that will be changing:
- Refinery is now Climatizer
- Sorting Factory has turned into Lava Siphon
- Train Yard has been destroyed by a land slide
That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 10 patch notes. As more information is released regarding Legend changes and weapon balancing for Emergence, we will update this piece, so be sure to check back here for new information.
While waiting for the official patch notes to be released, why not check out our recent article on the leaked Monster Energy collab for Apex Legends.

Seer’s abilities discussed at EA Play for Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence
Apex Legends upcoming Season 10 will feature a brand new Legend called “Seer,” who may even give Bloodhound a run for his money.
Apex Legends revealed further details on Season 10: Emergence at EA Play recently, giving players an insight into how the new Legend Seer will operate.
Season 9: Legacy has been a great success for Respawn, introducing a brand new way to play the battle royale with Arenas and expanding the roster with arguably the most balanced Legend they have introduced since the launch of Seasons, Valkyrie.
As well as enjoying the current event, Thrillseekers, which saw a new Arena’s map enter their game, players have also been getting their first details on Season 10: Emergence, especially the new Legend, Seer.
On July 22, EA held their annual showcase event, EA Play Live. As well as a variety of their games being showcased, such as Battlefield and Fifa, Apex Legends used this event to reveal the first official Apex Legends Season 10 trailer.
Although this wasn’t a gameplay trailer, it still provided a load of hints and details concerning Apex Legends’ new character Seer, including how his abilities will work.
As well as this, after the trailer had finished, one of Respawn’s developers provided even more information on Seer, where fans were given an explanation of his Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate abilities.
Apex Legends Seer abilities
Much like Bloodhound, Seer is a Recon Legend who will be mainly focused on gaining intel on enemies with a stealthy playstyle. Seer’s kit is all about tracking the opposition, but it seems the abilities are much more pinpoint than Bloodhound’s scan.
Apex Legends Seer: Passive ability
Seer will gain access to a heartbeat sensor when aiming down sights and be able to track nearby enemies. Although there is currently no representation of this in-game, perhaps players can expect something similar to Call of Duty’s famous Heartbeat Sensor tactical equipment.
After sensing an enemy’s heartbeat, Seers tactical ability will allow him to send out his Moth Drones to track them down and reveal their position.
Finally, Seer’s Ultimate ability will send out a heap of drones that will combine to create a sphere. Seer will be able to sense and track anyone who is moving fast within this sphere, creating an interesting gameplay mechanic, which may cause teams to alter their movements in order to stay undetected.
Although we don’t currently have any official gameplay of these abilities, the reveal trailer and descriptions of the abilities do a great job at giving players an idea of how Seer will work in-game.
Make sure to check back on this page as more information is released regarding Seer and Season 10, as it seems on July 25, we will be getting our first gameplay trailer.
