Apex Legends Season 9 might not start until May, but that doesn’t mean Respawn won’t start building the hype.
With a few weeks to go before all the new content goes live across PS4, Xbox One and PC, it looks like fans will get an in-depth look at what is being planned beforehand.
This will be part of the new Apex Legends Season 9 Legacy gameplay trailer, which is scheduled to go live this week.
Respawn has only provided a few hints at what will be included, telling fans on social media that it will be worth tuning in for.
We already know that Season 9 will introduce a new character called Valkyrie, with new weapons and map updates also being planned.
But with a lot of regular content expected to arrive with Season 9, Respawn has also been hinting at something more.
Arenas Mode looks set to be a big part of Apex Legends Season 9 and there have been a few teasers that it will offer something different from Battle Royale.
What that could be is anyone’s guess right now, although fans are hoping it will include giant robots fighting each other.
And some of the mystery clouding Season 9 could be lifted this week with the new Apex Legends Legacy Gameplay trailer.
