Apex Legends Breakout Season is now Available

Respawn Entertainment has released the latest update for Apex Legends, which includes the arrival of the new season 20, Breakout. As we have posted the patch notes before, plenty of features and surprises are coming through, as well as legend upgrades and crafting system overhauls.

One of the essential bits is that a new system for free-to-play legend rotation is now in play, meaning every two weeks, a new legend will become available to anyone. This will include a set of challenges related to that particular legend that will allow them to unlock the character permanently. Additionally, there will be Breakout Rewards Challenges before the season concludes, which will unlock further rewards.

Respawn Entertainment has also decided to introduce a new map rotation for Trios and Duos. The maps are Olympus, Storm Point, and World’s Edge.

This update also introduces players to the new Performance Mode at 120Hz, which is available on PS5, Xbox Series S, and X. It performs a slight reduction in visual quality and includes a new multithreaded rendering system for improved efficiency.

The crafting, as we have mentioned in Apex Legends has gone through a significant overhaul. Replicators have received a new upgrade, but are now free to use without the need for crafting materials. Replicators’ presence is also increased across the maps, which should give players some game edge.

A new Legend Upgrade system debuts this season, adding an in-match progression element that allows players to tailor their Legend to their playstyle. By earning EVO points through various means in the Battle Royale, players can unlock unique ability upgrades at Levels 2 and 3 for their Legends, adding a new layer of strategy to the game.

Respawn has also implemented several quality-of-life improvements. These include decreased interaction time with Replicators, the ability to access the inventory from the crafting menu, and auto-ejection of printed items from Replicators if left alone.

After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
